.... seriously. Please stop trying to distort my words and turn them into some discriminatory statement. Honestly, one of the most ridiculous statements I've read on a forum in quite some time.
However, if you want to travel down that path we can. If you're an automotive company planning to offering support to a platform. I promise you, perusing a vehicle whose owners primarily consist of mid-aged women will not be a prosperous venture for you. There is nothing 'sexist/ageist' about that. It's just reality.
Please troll else where.
In all fairness, you were the first one to mention the sexist/ageist comment, but it did get dragged out further than the point was intended. I think we all should probably just drop that overall portion and understand that this Focus isn't geared toward the performance section of the market. Further inflaming the conversation distracts from the overall premise of the thread.
That being said, even single digit percent sales on the overall production run of Mk3's is a significant number. Someone else can pull actual stats I'd they want, I just don't have the time.
The overall point is that SCT had been asked numerous times and they always say that it's being worked or going to happen...and everyone just keeps waiting. Business decision or not, if they intend on not supporting the Mk3 then it just needs to be said. You can't lose customers that you don't intend on supporting to start with.
Ultimately, let's all try to just keep this thread relatively on track...
