Do you currently own a Focus ST? What do you love about it? Raise your hand!
People laugh when I say I drive a 2002 focus, but it only has 57k miles and is a blast to drive. I certainly have the means to drive something new but I love it, especially after the supercharger install. It will split time with the RSAwesome, I test drove one of those. I didn't but it, but it got me interested in Foci
Turbo lag will definitely be more on the RS - closer to that of the STI, hopefully not quite as muchYes, I own a 2013 Ford focus ST,ST3 w moon roof. It is a great car and I love everything about it except the torque steer and the way it handles hard power in the curves; rear wheel drive S2000 is so much better. The radio is very good and I like the Bluetooth and Sync voice interface. Very good mileage ( RS will be 3 mpg less across the board: city 20, highway 29, overall 23) but that is okay. I like
way the small turbo comes on almost immediately with no turbo lag; I am hoping the RS turbo lag will be minimal. I like that it is pretty quiet on the highway and you can hear the audio. No problems in 40K miles.
I am really looking forward to the RS with AWD and as they say "you can never have too much power".

I have an ST and I love the car except in the winter - miss that AWD . Though yes the turning radius sucks, and the stereo is complete garbage.
