    Here in the great white north the RS ran good at -40C/-40F this morning. Keep in mind I had the block heater and oil pan heater plugged in all night. The engine started and ran well but everything else is so cold and stiff it's definitely hard on her!

    Did you hear the turbo howl a bit? Mine did and I was disappointed. I was hoping the priming would feed oil to it before it actually spun fast enough to need it.

    I ordered my first RS early, and it couldn't get the block heater.

    I am thinking about ordering it for my current RS and having it installed.
    A little, but the oil pressure was so high it was only like 5 seconds of it.

    I defrosted the turkey after the cold spell broke.

    Cool Point Counter-Point

    The 1990 Corvette and 2018 Ford Focus RS Limited Edition comfortably relaxing in the garage. The 2010 Ford Focus SES not so much

    When you get married see if you can find a place with at least a 3 car garage. I have been searching Downers Grove, Darien, Willowbrook and Burr Ridge. Brookridge in Downers Grove has the Aero community and I have searched there, the problem there is the homes are outdated and the prices are a bit on the high side.

    I am about to get my first oil change and seeing if anyone has a dealership recommendation? I live near 75th and Lemont Road so someplace not far from there.

    Are the Super Sport tides all-season?

    Thanks
