Some of the other threads seem to indicate that they won't. I hope they do. Even an SES version of the Euro Focus would be great.

I see you have a Mazda 3. I had a 2007 3i Touring. I loved it, but they wanted too much for it when the lease ended. I'm really happy with my 09 Focus SES, though.

I saw this article a while ago, just as amazing now as it was then. Absolutley amazing that an average-joe in the RS was able to keep up to the Stig in a Ford GT. If I didnt see this article with my own eyes, I wouldnt have believed it.

It is definitely a good read. Goes to show the little RS can keep up with the best of them on some twisities. And to show those with some super expensive cars that our kinda cars are not something to look over when it comes to that kind of race.

The RS is a fooking wicked car.

It'll pay head to head with BMWers, Mercs, hell I'm sure it'd even give a Porsche a run for the money.

BUddy of my mine owns a 2008 Porsche, he drove the 2009 RS. Said the only thing that made him walk out of that RS into his Porsche was the fact the RS is a Ford and POrsche is Porsche.

One day I'll own an RS.

A german series throw the RS (25,000 euros) aganist a M3 50,000 euros.

I thinkt he M3 Just barely edged out an won. The TV guy was like with a bit of tuneing, and a few thousand euro you could win in an RS and still say 20,000 euros!
