I thought about buying one before i bought the RS even had a test drive but i found it too heavy and cumbersome nowhere near as sharp and precise as the RS or maybe even a base model focus, although the V6 sounded very nice and the 4X4 gave it good traction, but give me the sound of a turbo'd focus and a LSD any day.

Yeah, I could be talked into it...
The only problem is the local cops would be carrying speeding tickets with my name pre-printed on them....

As much as I love VW, their cars are a littlle too pricey for me. I'm a cheap guy though...kind of.

Dunno if the r32 has a lsd but i would think so but what i was referring to was that a 250-300bhp focus does not need 4x4 to handle well and have good traction, plus with 4x4 you lose quite a bit of bhp through the transmission also you have to think of the weight of a 4x4 system.
