Who here is making this their first Ford purchase? I've been a Subaru guy for years and was sorely disappointed with the look and quality of the 2015 STI. The same HP and engine since 2005??? for almost 42k, yeah not for me.


One of the many Subaru's I have owned.

Same. ^ up until last year when I bought my fiesta I never thought I'd buy one. Fiesta got written off just in time to order the RS so... Here I am, AGAIN. Who woulda thunk?

First new Ford for me. My first car was a 99 3.0 Ranger. Had nothing but problems with it once it hit 100k.

I've owned two new STIs and a GTI since.

Ha! My first car was a 1971 baby blue Ford Pinto handed down from my father who drove it like a teetotaler. It was a 4 speed manual and still chirped into 2nd gear. Never in my life did I think I'd buy a Ford but super psyched to be. Coming from a 1991 Honda Civic Si hatchback.

Technically I've had a few free fords. A Grand Marquis LS HPP car (fairly rare I guess) and a Lincoln Town Car.

This would be the first Ford I'm paying for.

I am not "defecting" from any brand :)

First Ford for me also.
I have a 2009 Acura TL SH-AWD and I love the torque vectoring system. It's the reason why I ordered the RS and I'm sure it is going to be a blast.

I've had no allegiance.. Oh.. who am I kidding.. i've drooled over Evos for as long as I can remember.. when mitsu gave the evo the boot I had to part ways.. luckily Ford and the Focus RS was there and I haven't looked back (that often.. show me a good VIII anyday..)

My current car is a Subaru BRZ. I was never really into American cars in general, and I was thinking about getting an Audi S3. But then I saw everything Ford announced over the past year, including the RS, Shelby GT350, and, of course, the GT, and it really changed my mind about Ford. When I saw the specs for the RS, I knew that it was exactly what I was looking for.
