Lightweight Wheels - Would You Buy a Set?

I realize that there is a tire/wheel discussion forum, but I get the sense that it is not viewed by 3rd Gen owners nearly as much as this forum, so if it's okay with the admins, I'd really prefer to keep this thread here since it is specific to 3rd Gen owners.

All that said, I work for Enkei Wheels and have been contemplating the idea of having lightweight racing wheels built for the MK3 Focus community, especially with the Focus ST hitting the market pretty soon.

The most likely candidates would be the PF01 or the RPF1 in 18x8 +45 5x108. Both are spun forged racing wheels built in Japan and weigh in at around 18 lbs each. MSRP is $340 on the PF01 and $325 on the RPF1. I have to order a minimum quantity of 40 of each configuration to be able to bring these in, so I am starting by gauging interest here. So what say you Focus Fanatics? Would you buy a set if they were made available to you? Please be honest keeping the price in mind, so that we can determine if there is actually enough demand to produce these.
