WRC or RS???
I've contacted an overseas dealer that will ship to LA... If I do purchase from him should I go with a WRC or RS. I'm leaning towards the RS. Does anyone know the specs on these?

I dont think they are making the WRC off the production line??? I would say get the RS, I was lucky enough to see one at a ford dealership when I was in switzerland last year. They are pretty sweet lookin and the interior is so nice. Are you sure you want to do that though??? Have it brought here. I mean the RS is great and all, but for the money ou can get a new zetech and mod the hell out of it, it will have 600hp and you will still have about 10grand left over. The RS was 30000 dollars when I was in switzerland last year (Thats US!!! It was 37K swiss franqs) for that kinda money like I said you can get a new focus for 13000 and then dump 10 grand into it and have pleanty left over!!!! THINK ABOUT IT!!!!
