If it is a customers car I wouldn't want to be the guy who's got to explain to the customer what's happened to their car!

I'd be after a bit more than servicing! Most likely be a long wait for another one

I thought it was driven by a Ford mechanic soon as I saw the first picture, as the guys who's pointing to the left is wearing the exact same uniform my friend wears who works at ford!

Looks like someone lost control of that one rather than being in a collision :(

Drift mode perhaps?

Modern day RS's don't do anything for me! Now give me a Escort MKII RS2000 with four webbers and a Janspeed and I'm well away :wub:

Spotted my first Mk3 RS in the wild this afternoon. "Stealth" looks a lot nicer in person than it does in the pictures on Ford's website.

If it was a grey Mk3 RS it might have been Magnetic, not Stealth.

Magnetic is an awesome paint, Stealth just looks like primer imo.

Spotted new demo at my local dealership, Lookers (Benfield) Ford on York Road in Leeds.

Gonna have to pop in soon for some pictures :biggrin:

Seen 3 already, 1 was behind me and then came flying past me joining a motorway - they sound amazing. 1 was on otherside of road in white (looks horrible) and another was at a dealership can't remember where now think it might of been near York... travel that much I've forgotten where I've been too. But blue suits the car a lot. The only thing I don't like about it body wise, it doesn't seem to have an RS feel about it (waits to be slated for that comment). but by all means a lovely looking car and rather jealous as can't afford one lol.

tbh I'm still not sold on Nitrous Blue, I'd have to go Black or Magnetic (most likely Magnetic with Black Alloys and Privacy Glass)

The lack of wider arches like the MK2.5 RS doesn't bother me, but the bonnet vents would add that extra RS touch.

Not that I could afford to buy one either, nor would I want to park it where I live if I could afford it.

It would be keyed by jealous scrotes or lifted onto a lorry and shipped to Romania.

haha! I was at my other halves yesterday washing the car.. there has been a car left at end of her street so 20yards away from where we was! Anyway, either it's been robbed or police haven't had it yet but it has been in a serious smash to the rear end. Next thing we hear is 4 little chavs come flying down on bikes and get the bonnet lifted somehow and rob the battery. away they go like nothing had happened. It clearly wasn't their car as someone was shouting at them. 

The car is an 02 renault. so nothing special.

The older RS's was a true drivers car, someone who knew what the true meaning of the RS stood for, nowadays people will buy this RS just to brag what he has!

I bet without a shadow of doubt that if two RS focus's passed each other, there would be no signs of respect as they pass by, just another focus in my opinion but that's just me these days.
