I most likely wouldn't hold out as the FoRS better fits me with my needs at this time. Same reason I have a FoST and not the FiST. I can't really see the FiRS being AWD or would I wan't it as if there is a FiRS it should be very attainable for people and adding AWD will add a couple of grand to the price. I also think the FiST is an amazing handling vehicle and amazing fun due to it being so light and small, why add more weight to a car that already has a lot going for it. Put the 2.0EB in it, add tires, brakes, a diff, revoknuckle, and complete stiffer suspension set up and keep it under 27K and 2800lbs.
