Hi All,

I'm new to Fords, AWD, turbos and small cars in general, but I have been drooling over the new RS since I started hearing rumors like a year and a half ago. I started putting money aside every week and now am in a position to buy one. Even got permission from the boss (wife), who said "buy whatever car you want (within reason)"!

I'm in NorCal and am looking for a dealer that will order one for me - Stealth Gray,Yes to the 19" wheels if they are truly a <$2K option, no moonroof, Yes to the Recaros. If Nav can be unchecked, that's cool, too. Ford is a bundler of options for sure, so I really need to see the entire list.

All tips on where to find one are appreciated.

Nice to find a forum for this car and the mods that will surely follow. I hope to get one and be along for the ride!

Jim

I should add that I am a lifelong hot rodder and do lot of my own fabrication and motor building.

Current projects include:

1987 Buick Grand National with a motor & transmission (new crate combo) from the 2014 CTS-V, the 6.2 supercharged LSA motor:

My sleeper, the 81 Malibu 4Dr with a 421" Dart blocked smallblock I built with a Vortech YSi blower, huge FMIC, other supporting bits. The 421 replaces the 383 I built that hit 632rwhp on only 11.2#. Hoping for ~1200 at the crank on E85 from the 421" motor on ~18#.

One picture from the site:

Looking forward to meeting some of you that are in this region.

Cheers,
