  1. Well I did it, I bought a Mk3 Focus Rs & I love it !!...to be totally honest, if I’d have had to keep it stock power wise, I’d have sold it within 2 weeks of ownership, very bland power wise in stock form
    I worked in the garage trade for 18 years, and I got to drive some nice cars in that time, I’ve never driven anything that sticks to the road like this does !! I did try to get my head around the diff torque vectoring etc, but it fried my brain !
    Few upgrades so far, Dream science imap, scorpion cat back exhaust, Moubtune recirculation valve & Rally armour mudflaps
    Intercooler prob next on the upgrades list

  2. Has it had the head gasket done yet?
     
  3. The same time as the first service was done bud
     
  4. I was brought up on fast Fords, Cosworths, Capri 2.8i’s, RS 2000’s but haven’t had one for years

    They still tug at my heart step strings like nothing else.

    A lottery win would see an RS500 in my possession before anything else

  5. A friend has one the same age with 10k on it and he is holding off having it done. Not so keen on the YTS trainee being let loose on it ;);).
    I can't believe hie fast these things are on a country road, and the grip in the wet is beyond belief.
