    i like the look of it, no doubt it will go like stink.... but a front LSD does not compensate for full 4x4..... and at the end of the day, its a Ford and will be built like one....

    Mate of mine has one on order as his new company demo car. As soon as I'm let lose with it I shall post my findings, the last Focus RS he had was fcuking awesome and was running 345bhp when sold on.

    I'm expecting big things from the new RS

    It's not for me, does that spoiler actually help keep all that power down on the front wheels? No, so for that reason alone I think it's stupid, it just looks like another Maxed focus with an ASBO and it probably runs on Stella.

    Looks good, but defo not a Sub-Zero car. Gets away with been cool just coz of the rear diffuser and the fact it's green.

    But can't help but think it looks a bit squashed.

    Doubt it mate, the original Focus RS has made it chav free so this should have a good few years before it has to worry. Most of the chavvy cocks round here get themselves an Impreza turbo for 2k then drive them like idiots until they break

    Looks too much like the new Lancer to me.
    Looks similar but drives nowhere near as good

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    I saw a white one on pistonheads which looked very smart.

    I think they are cool and evo say it does not need the 4wd and prefered it to the latest evo which they have not rated as high as I expected them to.
