Does not have blind spot detection. I have no idea what infrared detection is, so I couldn't comment there.

Quick question. I'm trying to get my windshield replaced and the people at Safelite are trying to tell me their records show the RS has blind spot detection, infrared detection, and a heated base. I haven't heard anything like this in all the things I've read about the car here and elsewhere. Just looking at it, I can tell it isn't heated but I can't say for sure about the other two things. I never noticed anything that would lead me to believe it has blind spot detection, and I have plenty of miles on the highway. Can anyone confirm?
I think maybe they're trying to sell you an Audi RS3 windshield....

i believe the UK RS has those options, not in the States.

I'd be curious if the ST windshield would fit... need to replace mine on the RS already.

@Aracheon check out this thread:
If the OP is to be believed, any Focus windshield should fit. Depending on availability, I'll be replacing mine either this week or next and will keep you posted. Safelite said they couldn't get an RS specific windshield at this time so this is my last hope.
Looking forward to receiving my plate bracket!
Just a heads up, I had a Focus ST windshield installed today with no issues. I can get some pictures if anyone wants them, it just looks like a plain windshield without all that rain sensor crap behind the mirror. One thing to note is that the mirror mount is a wedge style on the new windshield, so it makes things easier if you want to upgrade to an auto-dimming or homelink mirror. The standard RS mirror will not work with this mount.
