    I just traded my 2013 Focus ST in on a 2015 Taurus SHO so I wanted to introduce myself. I live in Charlestown, IN and work across the Ohio River in Louisville, KY. I absolutely loved the Focus but I wanted something different and I ultimately landed on the SHO. I had the ST1 package in the Focus so I am loving the creature comforts in the SHO, especially sitting in bridge traffic during this heat wave.

    The car is Bronze Fire Metallic and it has a little over 30,000 miles.

    Oh do tell Manu.....

    I roll a 2013 ST as a daily, and my SHO is regulated to garage queen status now. The SHO is my favorite car. The amenities, comfort, power, and predictability makes it perfect cruiser, and even better sleeper. However, I dare to say my tuned ST is a better pure driving experience. I would expect that from Ford's factory rally car, especially when you can no lift shift it with such ease.

    Enjoy your new addition, and I saw on the other post that you have seen my thread on my SHO ownership so need to post it here.

    Sorry, I just assumed new members couldn't attach images. I just updated the OP.


    As far as I can tell it is a non-PP car. I have a spare, no button to turn off TC, and ETIS lists the axle ratio as 2.77.

    That is scary and reassuring at the same time. :)

    I agree about the ST. I felt so disconnected from the road when I first drove the SHO but now that I have a feel for it I love it. I definitely can't toss the SHO around like I did with the ST but that is kind of the point of me upsizing to the SHO.

    Yeah, I found your thread while I was lurking and saw you linked it in that other intro post. You have a ton of good info in there so I am sure I will be using it a lot, especially when I get into changing all of the fluids soon before I make any mods.

    Sweet. How far south? Do you ever go to Ohio Valley or come up to Louisville for any of the Cars & Coffee meets? If so I might see you around this summer.

    The one I am thinking of is from Ohio.
