    Could I just say that people should go and look at Focus RS Owners Club (or any other owners club for that matter) and check out their opinions because thats exactly what you will find - peoples opinion.
    There is no right or wrong just peoples perception of what they believe, I know loads of people who say that I was mad to spend £30K on a performance car but then again I also know a few people who would say that my car is a glorified A3 (they don't consider an A3 to be premium, posh or anything special). In fact to quote one friend I own an expensive Skoda but I made my choice based on what I wanted.
    I am not a Ford or an Audi fanboy, I just love nice cars.

    Boot is the biggest thing i have ever seen!!! It's probably about half of the actual car :laugh:

    And buying a place that's already done and needs no work is the plan!!

    Good for you

    All i'm saying is that i have a car which does the job as good as the Audi, impresses me as much as the Audi does and even has some things that are better than the Audi, yet i've saved myself 10k

    Now kindly go **** yourself :)

    Here we go again...my mate my mate my mate.....do you believe everything he tells you ?? wouldnt you rather find out for yourself like Smudge ?

    I really like my Audi but buggered if i would put it on a pedestal and worship it !! Its a car, it breaks down, it comes from the worst dealer network i have ever come across !! It takes 6 months to order another one , Its average at handling, steering and its a 8 year old design and looks it as well.....and it cost £35k (by the time you add the std parts you get on a ford anyway)....for what is actually just a small hatchback. It might be better than a Ford but then so it bloody should be !! Just what a "mates" experience with a focus has to do with smudge and his Mondeo beats me ...lol..
    Incidentally i think the R8 is **** because my mate had A2 and it got a puncture within 2 weeks of being new.....and the warranty didn’t even cover it...

    Just to clarify a point here:
    The "sport" buttons on nearly every make of car relate purely to the transmission and will only be found on automatic transmission (or some CVT) cars. All it does is remap the transmission and make the engine "rev a little higher" in each gear - on full throttle, that would be the redline!
    The exception to this is some exotic sports cars (such a Ferrari) and, of course, the "M" button!!

    Cheers

    To bring the thread onto a random topic...Brownie Points are a complete myth! I have earned a sh*t load (yes pun intended) over the years and when i come to cash them in, I get told that the redemption value is sod all! And one little mistake loses them all anyway, ha

    Back on topic, hope the Mondeo is good t you mate. When my A4 was pranged i seriously considered a mondeo, just couldn't find one I liked. The A4 was fixed under insurance anyway too so didn't have to worry. Great cars though. Hope the house is going well.

    lol, thats because you obviously dont cash them in right! Telling her....'now woman'..... probably isnt the best way....

    Oh and maybe you should stop making 'little' mistakes haa haaa..........

    Ahhhaaa, i like the idea of giving brownie points out, i'm gonna try it!

    And sarah, if she played conkers with them it would be more than she does now, so i'm all up for it...maybe one day they'll be a 23'er.
