I bought the 2011 Focus SES for the wife before they changed the body style. Your definitely right about the great gas mileage. Put 20K on it so far and no problems. Good luck with yours.

I saw the new focus st model in motor trend. I would consider it. Don't know about the se model, probably more family styled rather than the boy racer sport model.

The ST model just hit the streets. Starts at 25K and you get a turbocharger, 18 inch wheels, Fancy seats and some other goodies including, I believe, a special gold paint job. Built especially for the young generation.

The film is OK. Looks like the British version is getting 2 doors and the front clip is way different from what they have here. Jeremy is calling it Orange where it's more of a Gold tint in the U.S.

Rob, Yes, FORD bought into Volvo years ago as did each of the big car makers here getting a piece of something or other from overseas.

The focus ST's are very popular here in the UK. See them everywhere and the new model is starting to appear. There's an even more extreme RS version as well with a bigger turbo. If I'm honest they attract a 'certain' type of person if you know what I mean. You get them in 5 door or 3 door. I prefer the previous american style focus (like CREWZINs). Just looks better, we never got that style over here though.
