to mod or not to mod that is the ?

for those that can realisticly own the rs that has a high chance of coming to the states do u carry on with ur dreams to finish modding ur current foci or kick them to the curb for new dreams of owning an rs. for instance i want a kw setup and upgraded clutch maybe even fi, but do i stop all that and just maintain reg maint for the rs in 2010 or 2011 which is an eternity away. what if the rs does not come. then what? waited so long for nothing. openonion please. not on my situation just general. (yes i knew what i wrote)

The question is how many people will be able to afford one when and "IF" they ever come here. I honestly don't see ford bringing them over here. And honestly, for the price of one you could get more power out of your current car for less.

i would stop with the current car and focus on the RS. If I get a RS it will be a hobbie car, not a daily driver.

I would trade in the SVT, no need to keep it anymore with a better Focus out there. That is of course if the price is reasonable, if its 35k like in that other thread than no thanks, there are much better cars for that kind of money.

Don't think you've got much to worry about...
Fiesta RS Meltdown!!!!

However, If it were to happen, I'd keep the Focus as a DD and keep the RS sexy.

I doubt I'd buy an RS anyways (not that I don't like them) so I wouldn't worry much about it. I've my eye on BMW's next.
