Focus sighting!

Yesterday evening at Waurn Ponds near Geelong had a positive sighting of a Focus. Didn't get a real good look as it was turning at a roundabout but it was unmistakeable. Has anyone else seen Focus' in Aus??

All I can say is it looked very cool and that I want a Focus RS immediately (a wad of cash to buy one with wouldn't go astray...really want a T3 as well to satisfy the V8 urge... maybe if I write a really nice letter to Santa...

Yeah, I've seen a hatch and a sedan version. I have to say that the sedan version isn't that appealing at all. The hatch version is another story altogether.......:s5

We have had two Focus' at the Discovery Centre in the last year or so on display. They were both silver. I even managed to have a ride in one when we took it back to the plant. After being in one i can see why they are soooooo good.

The arse on the sedan looks like it was a major after thought. I wouldn't even bother with it myself.. just bring the 3 door and 5 door hatches.. :s3
