    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....

    Not sure I would agree with that, why does it?

    Looks better in that nice Ford blue I admit.

    :faint:

    I think it will look better in the flesh and also the pea green doesn't help.

    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:racer:

    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. :puke2:

    Fast? Probably.
    Good looking? Purely subjective.
    Cool? Not in a million years..........

    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:angrymod:

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

    They are 19" wheels, although they dont look like it.

    When i first herd about it i had my megane R26 and went to order one but, when i saw it at the motorshow i decided against it.

    My m8 took delivery of his last week, in White, not seen it up close yet, he passed me on Sunday in it, I have to say it looks awesome in the flesh, and yep it goes! 4WD, yes I think so, but for it will be fun none the less!

    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.
