-wheels sticking out of fender. 235/35 19' + nyc streets = hell
-dont like these rims, want the multi spokes rims in video
-want the regular blue not this sky blue version. supposedly reg blue not an option
-where is rear fog light?
Maybe the RS Recaros are an option...my money is on that.

I don't care about the wheels sticking out..but I do agree about the rubber bands and bad roads, Im in Michigan where the roads are slightly worse than a war torn 3rd world country in some places. Gonna need different wheels and tires if I dont want constantly bent rims.

dont like the rims? See above....we will probably need something else anyway

Dont like the blue but I think they're trying to emulate the Mustang Grabber blue.

-wheels sticking out of fender. 235/35 19' + nyc streets = hell
-dont like these black rims, want the multi spokes rims in video
-want the regular blue not this sky blue version. supposedly reg blue not an option
-where is rear fog light?

so i left the car show hoping ford will make some last minute alterations to production model. car still look good. if the rs in videos was 100% this car show one is 80% IMO.

rant over.

Unless you move to Europe or Asia you will not be able to buy the car with the Recaro CS Shell seats. No side airbags and they were not crash certified to FMVSS standards. The base RS Recaro seats will be the only ones available here. If you want to import the parts yourself go right ahead, but it won't be cheap. Ford has said the Recaro RS CS Shell seats are for Europe and Asia only.

The wheels on the show car in the USA are the Forged lightweight alloy wheels, the base multi-spoke wheels as shown on the reveal car.

The wheels are only as wide as the ST wheels (8") afaik so it doesn't stick out very far if at all.

Rear Fog light is not an FMVSS requirement, rather an ECE one so it will not be available due to being unnecessary.

Nitrous blue is the RS exclusive color.

Liquid Blue is not available on any Ford, and is the special show car paint used for the reveal of the Ford Performance range only.

Me personally I couldn't care less what recaros we get...for our american asses the ones we get are probably more comfortable anyway.

I prefer the wheels on the USA show car, but I was serious about our roads 35 series tires are not a good idea here so aftermarket rims it is.

@suss6052

thank you for the reply. seems to make sense at what you say. SAD though. would think global car meant we get what europe would get. totally understand the rules that make it not possible.

hopefully when road test and comparison happen with competitors it does well and not lower from my IMO 80% to 60%. hope the awd system will do this car justice in performance dept. seemed gimicky with DRIFT mode though. REALLY!!!!!. we need a mode to do that?

I bet so many hearts are broken after reading this comment, because mine certainly is after reading about the seats.

I was disappointed at first, but can't argue with safety.
