    It is official! RS do not let me down.

    I am officially car-less. I went all in on pure hype, for the Focus RS.

    Ever since they announced the new RS will be coming stateside, I decided to sell off my current cars and consolidate to only one car.

    Right after they announced it, I sold my mint 2002 SVT focus, bone stock, 29K miles.



    Then came the hard one to part with, absolutely loved this car. After much going back and forth to sell it or not, a co-worker overheard I was selling it. Which led his co-worker's relative to buying it last month. Both co-worker's could not believe I decided to sell it, longest I have ever kept a car.

    2005 CLK55 AMG Brilliant Silver (1 of 247 imported to the US) 37K miles.

    I had Kleemann Headers, Renntech CF Airbox, AFE Pro-Dry Filters, and a Eurocharged Tune

    Full weight, it ran [email protected] Missing this car already.




    And yesterday sold my daily driver - 2009 Acura RDX SH-AWD 39K miles.

    Great car overall. Perfect for a daily.




    I hope I made the right decision! Overall, I think I have. I say that now, until the asinine 10K market adjustments surface.

    Thanks. I have access to another vehicle for the time being, might pick up older mustang or f-body to DD for now.

    GTE, my Acura had an extended warranty, thought it would be better to sell it now, while it has a good amount of warranty left as opposed wait. It sold faster than I expected.

    That's true that new forum member, D1ckSlippy, took all the orders because he paid cash

    Well they will be limited numbers so there will probably be a long wait list for arrival first come first serve, should of at least kept the focus for a daily being the cheapest to run

    I admire your courage and refuse to imitate it. All your exes there are glorious, btw. How was that Benz?
    They must be hard up for ammunition when they throw such shot as that.
