I like it a lot, minus the weird front bumper layout and the huge ford emblem and cut-out in the hood. and the tailights are going to take some getting used to. It definitely reminds me of the MK1 focus though which is good.

And I really like that interior a lot, those seats are killer looking. lately all the cars I've seen with the interiors just don't look right, but they nailed that one, everything looks great together, instead of a plain dash and an over the top center section, everything just flows in and out of the controls

and I really like the way that ZX3 looks, please oh please give us that!

Its a global version,but still a Focus.
The RS is in Europe.
Its in Mexico.
Why isnt it here???
Why should we have to wait a couple years to get what everyone else allready has in other parts of the world,if its a global product?
Listen to Big Jordan below...

Also the Mustang is a performance car, for a niche, the Focus is a commuter car. Don't get it twisted.

Besides, what year did the S197 Mustang start, and what year did the GT500 come out??

Exactly.

no ZX3 makes me angry
front ford emblem is too big and i don't like the cutout on the hood for it.
taillights will take some getting used to
and the lower grills look a bit off from any view except straight on.

not saying those things are fail status, but just the things that popped out at me.

Overall, I like the look of the new Focus, but I stand by My previous post.

And really, I already own a "performance model" Focus, so hopefully by the time I want or need a new used car, there will be one available. Oh, and last I checked, the RS came out in a MK1 first, not MK2...so there's really no excuse for not releasing it Here, other than to see if there really is a market for it.

::EDIT:: Forgot to add, I REALLY like the stock wheels, and the fact that They are in a 5-lug, even if I can't use Them now, which I would. Sexy stuff.

Exactly, It's not like the RS was on sale from the very start. They got the MKI in 2002, which was 4 years after the Focus was first introduced in Europe. Hopefully Ford will not wait that long to introduce the RS line again.
