    I love the look of the MK1 Focus RS. They are quicker than the figures suggest too and easily tuned. But jesus that blue interior is horrid.

    You're right, enjoy it stock for the first 6 months, then when you do tune it it will be like a new car again. How do you find the fuel consumption?...

    Seems expensive for the mileage on it imo. Could be perfect too but as Dan said it would probably be very hard to sell on again.

    True. You want at least the 2.0 150bhp model. 190 bhp if you can stretch Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

    They are real exhausts on the R too, well in the hatch at least, i know the wagon has two fake ones. I'm sure the DSG sounds lovely with this too.
