Hey all,


I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself, Wes here. Not so new to the forum scene, but I am new to the Focus scene :)

I am in the process of building a house with my partner- 80 (yes 80) miles from my job, we have been renting a house together since last summer close to where we are building, and over the summer I bought a 'beater' 08 Mazda 3S to save miles off my new Acura TSX, I racked 20k on it in just under 5 months LOL. So with a total of 120k on it, the brand new idea was enticing.

We get our fleet vehicles through Ford for work and I was ordering a few 2014 S' and then decided to check out to see how much a relatively loaded up SE would be for myself. Well, needless to say the numbers were too good to pass up, I traded in my Mazda, and now I have a brand new Focus to rack some miles on!

I cannot believe how much fun this car is to drive :) I love it so far, but stay tuned, because this will be going 160-180 miles daily for work, so I hope to get 200k out of it before replacing it.

I just got the windows done on sat (I'm originally from the south.. We ALWAYS do our windows in my family) lol.

Welcome fellow MD Fanatic! Great looking car. That commute is crazy. I live about 3 miles from my office so only about 16K on my nearly 2 year old Titanium.

Sharp looking car! Did you opt for the 5 speed or DCT?

Oxford White with sunroof and 201a package. Looks familiar!

What options did you get with it?
