Posted via FF Mobile Idk if the RS will be four door, it might. Maybe Ford will make four and two doors. Especially since the new Golf R coming out is going to be available as such.

Kyle nice to see you back..where have you been. Ive been alone in many post arguments lately lol.

I have to say, I'm usually not a fan of sedans. But man that one looks sexy!

(Wrong thread, sorry I'm an idiot!)

Any shots under the hood of this?
While it's quite powerful right from the start, my mind is already trying to come up with improvements I could make to it.

Other than possible improvements that could be made, I really like this. After thinking it over (and after a long road trip with a fully packed Focus sedan), I've come to really like the 4 doors. And a front wheel drive car is still great, especially with their torque vectoring and revoknuckle suspension, I'm actually in favor of fwd.

Waiting for it to be released is a pain in the neck.

This is just my opinion, but to be competitive it should be priced close to the Mazdaspeed3 and VW GTI. IMHO these are the most comparable cars in the US market, the WRX and Lancer Ralliart offer AWD systems which offer a lot less torque steer than the vehicles that are putting 200+ horsepower through two wheels (or one wheel if it has an open differential).

If I remember correctly the GTI and Mazdaspeed3 have a base price near 23,000.
