Looks pathetic. I'm surprised that someone actually imported the Focus.The new ones are good,but the old ones..err..I doubt it.

OT:Bodies? are you refering to that gunny sack on the ground? or the guy trying to fix something under that car?

Haven't you heard? Gunny sacks with feet are the new thing. Makes them easier to trudge along, they literally do the walking for you. Look hard, all you gotta do is 'focus'.

Yeah... lets just ignore the two human beings on the ground and cry about a dinky ford focus missing a light bulb. Poor ford focus. What a waste of a beautiful car! OH SORROW! What has it done to deserve such awful treatment. It breaks my heart to see you oh ford focus. Someone please save the beautiful ford focus before I cry any more.

// end sarcasm.

someone explain to me the need for this stupid banter?

It is a common sight in Mumbai to see many homeless people sleeping on the roads/pavements. yes you would not be used to such sights in Toronto. But this is quite a sad reality in India. And nowhere does this bring in the topic of priorities in any way. This is an automotive forum, not a UN Poverty Reduction Program or an NGO website. So IMO, the guy did have his priorities right in posting and commenting on the pic. To each his own!

I missed the feet.I apologize.I understand where you are going with this,hskhan.
For now,we'll stick to the discussion on the Ford Focus.
No offense meant. But we'd all go on & on about other things.The whole purpose of having a thread on a certain car is lost,otherwise.

It took a while to find the 'feet'.
I'm erally surprised that the new Ford Focus hasn't been imported yet.Not that importing Ford vehicles is common.

Just spotted a previous generation Ford Focus sedan at Carter Road, Bandra.
The car was white and a well maintained one.

Among others, saw a white bimmer Z4 and a deep blue/black Mazda RX. Anyone know of the latter??
