    What car would you get if you had a do-over?

    So, if you could have a do-over, what car would you get instead of the Focus RS? What about today?

    I'm really not sure...a Mustang GT, GTI, or Golf R maybe. Maybe even a Fiesta ST. Today, I'd get a Veloster N probably.

    There are pros and cons to every car. I’d probably get an RS again. I’ve learned the car well and have enjoyed autocross with it. Any way you cut it, I would have done the same thing with any car. I doubt any other car would be “easier” or “harder” to win with at autocross . My main requirement was just to have four doors and enough space for my five year old and his things for sports, etc.

    Classic. I laughed out loud.

    I already replied to the OP's question in another thread, but in case we enjoy thinking about what others think are substitutes.
    Only manual transmission options were considered, though obviously with an additional $15k to my original cost:
    - Mustang GT350 ('16 would need the track package; '17+ I wouldn't need to worry about that)
    - Lotus Evora S
    17 FoRS Nitrous Blue, RS2, forged wheels, moonroof
    13 Subaru BRZ (Autocross replacement for the FoRS...screw that panic-assist braking)
    11 BMW X5M
    06 BMW Z4M Roadster
    03 Lotus Esprit

    I play the “if my car was written off” game. If I could get one new, I’d absolutely replace my RS with another one, but I wouldn’t go used. On the short list is bmw m2, used gt350, Kia stinger. All along the same kind of line

    I would have still gone with the RS.

    especially here in the States, they are no longer offering it. I can pick-up a Mustang GT, Stinger, RS3 later.

    A do over? I'd wait a few months and get a manual Chevy SS. They were only automatics when I picked up the RS.

    Today? I'd start looking at used RSs if I lost mine for some reason.

    Frost White RS is best RS.

    ^Exactly what I was going to say.

    I would have probably skipped the loan and bought a nice daily and a fun weekend/dedicated track car. Probably a Lexus, and E34/E39 BMW maybe even a W203/W204 Mercedes wagon as a daily and a 944S, Miata, E36, MR2, etc.
