Hey So I was thinking about buying a Focus RS but am still on the fence I have owned, 03 evo8 (321-350 awhp),04 A4 6mt 1.8t (280 awhp) 02 WRX 5 speed (unk hp... but more than a stock STI)
I know I don't want the Golf R or S3 due to my previous Audi experience but am stuck between the WRX (7k cheaper) EVO FE(proven and easy to mod) but for the same price there is the Focus with all that is going for it there are 3 things I'm worried about
1. clutches in rear end
2. I personally have never liked hatch backs (no chance for a sedan soon?)
3. I have never liked Ford (this car might change my mind?)

Hey all,

Long time ford fan, bought my first focus SE in 13 been looking forward to the RS since then. Was disappointed when I tried to reserve one and came across the 5k dealer markup. Looking forward to making new friends and finding the bets/ fiscally responsible way to buy this car!

Cheers

Hello, I'm Paul. IT guy and jack of all trades. I came from a Ford family and my first few cars were Escorts, went to Hondas for a bit, and now back to Ford. Sold a couple cars to buy the RS and while I've driven stupid as a kid and spirited in my 20's, I'm looking to get my feet wet on the track. Never done it before and a bit nervous, but it looks fun and the RS seems like a great vehicle to jump in with. As an introvert I'm always open to advise and opinions from the veterans who've been in the scene for awhile.

Just can't wait to get behind the wheel...

Hey guys, I'm Allen in upstate NY. Was never a ford guy until I got my 2013 Shelby GT 500, unfortunately I can only drive it here 4-5 months a year. Needed a commuter car with AWD and was lucky enough to grab a RS for under MSRP. Stealth grey RS2 with winter wheels

Hey Everyone! I am Hans, i am from sweden but lived back a forth between US and Europe for last 20 years. Previously mainly been a vw gti guy, but this car is such a legend that when it was finally offered here and with my own return to US there is really no other choice for me. So i am looking for a Frost White RS2 package car, looks like best chance is a 2017. Which is ok with me. Have some experience on track, but will use this car as daily driver.

Hey I'm Jared. Back in 2012 I decided not to buy a WRX and went with the vanilla Impreza instead, hoping to save $$ for something special down the road. It proved to have a major oil consumption issue which has since been fixed under warranty but nonetheless left a bad taste in my mouth for Subaru. Now I'm deciding to go for the RS and I just put in an order on a '17 NB RS1 in Georgia. Looking forward to the extra 200hp.

Hello from the G.T.A. Canada!! I just picked up my MY16 RS yesterday!!

I'm all about AWD Turbo. I've owned several DSM's (Mitsubish Eclipse/Eagle Talon), a hopped up WRX for quite some time. I dabbled with a couple 350Z's but once this RS became available I had to consider it. The interior room was the deal maker. I'm 6'7" and this car fits me perfectly. I don't even have to put the seat all the way back!!

I work for a company that distributes aftermarket performance parts to it was a perfect fit for me all around.

I can't wait to get into it and see what this thing is really all about.

G'day everybody,
Not long now until the RS arrives in Melbourne, about 4 week.

I ordered Blue with standard wheels / Tyres.

Due to a change of plans since I ordered the call I will be selling the RS when it arrives.
Are people looking to buy rather than wait??

Cheers
Angus

Hi Everyone, Martin from SF Bay Area - I had pre-ordered a 2017 FW RS, then received a call on Friday from my dealer saying he got an unexpected delivery of 3 RS's. I went over and purchased immediately. Unfortunately had an ADM of 3, but still very excited to purchase. I have to wait to pick up until some recall regarding locks gets cleared.. IMG_7631.JPG
