Posted via FF Mobile Somewhat agree but the new focus and all other new designsare far from boring or conservative.

I absolutely love it. I guess I really do have to wait until late this year/early next year/whenever they actually get it on showroom floors to get rid of my POS. I was half-hoping that I would hate it so that I could justify getting something else sooner.

Nah,Im just pissed as for the last 2 years my local Ford dealer has told me "Yes" the RS will be coming here,and again,it didnt.
Makes sense though that in time since the platforms here allready,it might show itself eventually.
And also....my Gripe initially was:
It looks like a Toyota Vibe from the side.
Just not a fan till I can see one in person.
This is more of an accurate comparison...

I like everything EXCEPT the front end... all of that big open area remonds me too much of a ricer body kit

well yeah, enthusiasts will always love more tire, I was saying for the vast majority of the general public, 235 width is not really necessary on a Focus. But that enthusiasts and a possible future SVT would love it. If 235 width is a factory option, possibly, maybe a 245 without too much modding won't rub? All speculation, but if we get the Focus RS in SVT form, I would love 245's all round to help handle the 300 hp & 324 ftlbs!

And the revoknuckle is a modification of the MacPherson strut developed for WRC and used on the Focus RS. You won't see it on a base model focus. It's primarily used to control/reduce torque steer from the stupidly high powered (yet oh so sexy, I want one) Focus RS. The 150ish hp of the base Focus will never need it. A SVT using the 300 hp & 324 ftlbs RS motor will desperately need it

here's a simple explanation:

Yea man i totally agree i cant believe they stuck with fwd with the focus. Its obvious they should of at least did awd right? Also ford should of broken new ground by making an economy car be just as fast as the top sport cars, at least as fast as the god cars the evo amd the sti........
