Welcome! I had a 2011 WRX before my focus. Loved the car, didn't love the problems. I have had my focus for about 2 years without a problem, hope yours is good too.
I was just driving a 2.5i, it was plagued with problems. Not many, but when they happened they were expensive.

What did you have before, sti?
Was too poor for an STi in 09. Drove a 2.5i Impreza Sedan and I planned on trading it in at Subaru when I could afford something else. Put 112k miles on it (got it with 12k miles as a lease return), and I test drove some hot hatches and a WRX and STi (couldn't afford this now, just for the lulz) and when I test drove the Focus ST I pretty much settled on it immediately. Hard to beat what the ST offers for it's price, and the WRX was going to be about 5k more expensive. Not trying to be a hater, but the new WRX's look dumb. When they discontinued the body style I had I was extremely turned off by Subaru's new body style. If anything I would've shot for a Forester 2.5XT instead of a WRX. But I am sooooooooooo happy with my decision.

Looks great.

Love the way the optional wheels look on the magnetic metallic.
The dealer I went to had two ST1's coming in on the truck, I opted for this one over the other MM because it had the optional wheels. Plus the other one wouldn't have come with the red calipers IIRC.
