Went looking to test drive a used manual transmission Focus;
found a good deal on light silver sedan with sunroof.
Ordered approx $1K of accessories via Internet since then.

I converted my second car from automatic to manual transmission;
others (except one truck) have been manuals.
Paddle-shifted dual clutch might be attractive if reliable and well-sorted,
but that seemingly does not apply to Foci.

Cars with floor over rear suspension open to passenger compartment
typically sound noisier than comparable sedans.

Lack of cruise control precluded S sedans.

I would have preferred white over silver, fog lights,
rear disc brakes, sport suspension and (probably) cloth seats
but neither a rear spoiler nor wheels > 16";
would have opted an SE sport package, if available.

As it is, Ford Racing' Focus Handling Pack Kit M-FR3-FS is on order,
and the stock cloth driver seat will be modified.

IMO, Ford's website for locating preferentially-optioned Foci is a bad joke.
