thisisbenji I'd love to see one here, yet I don't know if I'd buy one. At $29,000 we're getting into Mustang GT range. I'm not sure that an RS would even have a chance against one of those, at least not in your typical daily setting.

Ah, good catch, I should have recognized that. Watching so many episodes of Top Gear have trained me to mentally convert car values in pounds to dollars.

For example, look at ST prices. Almost the same identical car:
FOCUS ST-1 from 21,995
FOCUS ST-2 from 23,495
FOCUS ST-3 from 25,495

Focus ST-1 from $24,995
Focus ST-2 from $26,880
Focus ST-3 from $28,930

Even so...why wouldn't they want to compete directly w/ all-wheel drive?
Weight, complexity, and cost are what the RS team says. They think a trick LSD and suspension setup will allow the car to be faster and handle better than if it had AWD. I'm inclined to disagree, like many others.
