    First "Buy Back" RS's hitting dealer lots

    A gentleman on an a local auto enthusiasts Facebook forum just posted looking for advice on buying a Ford repurchased RS with "30k miles on the chassis, and a brand new engine."

    Did some research and found the dealer, and what I believe to be the car:

    https://www.covingtonford.net/all-in...ce=20000-29999

    Looks like this dealer has 2 other 16 RSs. Really interested in the car at these price points ($23,900 for this 31k mi example) and two others with 15k miles each priced at $27.9k and $25.9k.

    Sounds like a great way to get that dedicated RS track car!

    Thoughts?

    Phil

    white 23k looks to be missing fog light bezels, or did they just get misguided paint work?

    Yea, odd that the white one is missing the bezels. at $150 a pop, you better negotiate them into the price! :P What first caught my eye were those white wheels... Not a good look IMO.

    Didn't notice the black mirrors on the SG one. What color should they be? I had a Mustang GT once that had plastic mirrors. I ended up getting them painted white to match the body. Looked slightly better...

    If you're buying the drivetrain for a track car it's an excellent deal. If you're looking for a newish car, just look at all the things that is wrong with them on just these 4 replies.
    Frost White RS is best RS.

    Those side mirrors could be carbon fiber replacement covers. Kinda hard to tell from the photos.

    It's a shame to see the photos on this car posted.

    https://www.covingtonford.net/used/F...earchDepth=2:3

    That NB needs a full blown detail done. The trunk area photo looks to have cobb webs in it, I just hope it's lighting that's causing it but then the dust all over the console leads me to believe not.

    So it was once offered for $33.9k and now $25.9k?

    Hi all, long time lurker, first time posting. I've been eyeballing those three at Covington Ford for a while now, wondering what the deal was on pricing. I'll stop by next time I'm down that way.

    If you look at the pics in the ad, the color on the gray one isn't quite right, and the door jambs are black. Guessing respray or wrap.

    I think that's a camera defect more than anything. The cobb webs wouldn't look like that unless the hatch has been open all this time. As for the console area, either it's been sitting for awhile or it's been sitting/driving in a dusty environment. I just noticed how dusty my console area is and I just cleaned it two weeks ago.
