Yeah that's what I figured, I mean I may do it when I have the money to do it but I like the red color anyways. Thanks

I like the newer Torreador Red more than the Race Red.

I'm not sure I've seen them both side by side. Do you have some photos you can attach?

I think the race red looks better in my opinion. They both are a nice color but the race red just looks better to me.

Yes it is more traditional red. My daughter has found a Toreador Red Focus Platinum hatchback with ecoboost and it is HOTT.

Do you have any idea where I can get tail light guards for the b3000? I've looked around a little online but haven't found anything.

Not sure, I have never used projectors. A lot of people on here do though.

Umm...the only ecoboost focus currently is the ST, which doesn't have a platinum trim level. Titanium is the top of the line trim level for Focus.

I meant Titanium. Pretty sure it's 1.0 liter 3 cyl ecoboost. That's what the ******* on the lot said.

Maybe it's a Fiesta.

It's gotta be a 2.0 Duratec. The 1.0 3 cylinder is a 2015 option, 2015's haven't started production yet according to Fords website (can't build and price one yet), and no 2015's are showing on inventory on dealers lots around me (showing as dealer ordered)

Looks like the 2015 is actually going to be a LATE 2015 run, and the current gen (what I have) is going to continue as a 2014.5 run.
