Ford got the Focus RS right tho - at least as far as the RS badge is concerned. Because of the limited numbers, it will hold its money like the superior, all be it much older, Escort RS Cosworth.

The Focus is quick, but its not great as a road car. One of the other engineers in my office has one, but like all the magazines say, its a bit of a pig to drive.

Oh, and my Scooby blew it off the road more than once![:D]

Must try him in the Passat. Maybe if I get in front of him, and I floor it, I will leave enough black smoke so he wont see where I went!!! [^]

There were a similar number of Escort Cossies to the number of Focus RS's. The Focus was only sold for a year and even 5000 isnt a lot.

Thing is the Escort Cossie has been around a while and lots were sold for rallying, loads have been wrapped round trees or stolen and the only good ones left ie 8 year old minters with around 30k on the clock sell for ?20,000. A lot of them are being stored now due to their appreciating value. The Focus will end up being the same.

Even 12 year old 100,000+ milers with 65 owners, ex-stolen, damaged repaired, mechanically dud, rusty Fix Or Repair Daily sheds go for ?8000.

I still look for a minted low mile Imperial Blue one in my area with FFSH in standard spec with the Lux pack. None are available. The few that pop up are all in south england.

Still my dream car....

I saw an Escort up in Buckie recently like that. Poss the same car!

Maybe you could PM me the details. Maybe I will go the Cossie route and forget about the bike for a while!

I would be interested in genuine figures for a chipped 150PD golf also;

ie 0-60

0-100

1/4 mile

Top Speed

The reason I am asking is that there is a 200 BHP one in Peterhead which goes like horse manure off a shuffle...

Just got back to this thread. Been down to Nigeria, Norwich and up to Shetland since I last saw this thread!

Yes, the Golf is Silver and has the plate OIL and 4 numbers. It is the quickest diesel car I have ever seen. Followed it one day and watched him pass a Cavalier Turbo on the Fraserburgh Bypass road.

Hearing of sub 7 sec 0-60 times and sub 15 sec 1/4 mile times is making me jealous! How many mpg's do you guys in souped up 150PD's get?

What car do you have Chief and where are you from?

Shame what Ford have done with the way the new Focus looks. I guess however they will be able to stick a Sierra/Escort Cossie whale tail to the rear of it however when /if they do ever make a Focus RS Cosworth.
