Dear Ford. . .Where's my Freakin' RS?

Okay, you've been smacking the competition for a few years now in the WRC.

Stop hogging all the fun!

I have to buy a Subaru STI now because you're not even considering building us one!

WHY???

Seriously, with the beating they're taking... i bet the last thing on their mind is importing the RS.

I'm seeing gradual improvements in the focus from Ford. I did the factory tour with the other focusfanatics and talked to some of their engineers and public relations people.

I think they're listening... it just takes a while for them to turn around. I like the direction they've been heading with the new foci. The new platform is set to come out in 2011 (or was that 2010).. not much else to do except wait.

Or buy a Mazdaspeed3.

Oh man, y'all don't even know. I work at a Ford/Subaru Dealer. And I have to stare at this STI all day long.

Subie makes a good car though. I'm sure I'll be happy with it. But, I love the look and feel of the ford better.

It makes me mad more than anything. But I guess I'll live. LOL

Like i told you guys a couple months ago, were getting the MkII in late 2009 and i was told that SVT will be doing "alot" with those cars, so maybe we can hope that the RS will make it here. At least we'll have the ST.

Hey I missed that! We're getting the MKII in '09?

Suweet!

Maybe my next car won't be a mazda...

BTW, most of the reviews i've read about the STI knock it for ride noise, cheap interior, and all around daily driveability.
