I think they could do better than just a bolt on looking rendering like this:
Rendering: 2016 Ford Focus RS Wide Body - Motorward

Marry it to the front bumper better and not go nearly as wide.
its happening here already some are fitting flared arches going for that ken block car look and some tuners here are doing things like this with wrapping and new alloys

Was at my dealership Sat. 5/21/16 did a tracking on my car it was built on 4/25/16 was in transit on 4/28/16 left Germany on 5/10/16 on the Cygnus Leader, I have been tracking the Cygnus leader since 5/22/16 it is in Port of New Jersey as of 07:00 5/24/16 and will be in Port of Baltimore 5/25/16 18:00 , so I think I should see it by the middle of June you guys up in NY and such should be seeing yours sooner I would think. When I was asking at my dealership they had heard nothing about Ford putting a hold on the RS's .

Just wondering where you heard the rumor from Focus 112. Any rumor as to why they put them on hold ?

I got mine on Monday the 6th. Clutch takes some getting used to. Exhaust sounds amazing. If you didn't order navigation make sure your phone is compatible with applink.

I got the call last Thursday that the car was delivered and ready to be picked up. However I had to find one in Georgia since every one in SC was sold forever ago. Been in anticipation all week to pick it up this saturday. So I should have mine on 6/18.

Well after a 18 hour day of driving and dealing with the dealership I finally took ownership of my RS. I'm about 300 steady miles on it after my trip, I'm going to wait until about 3000 miles before I flog it at all but even with only half throttle and nothing over 3500rpm it's still an amazing car even in normal drive mode.

I'll be playing with the damping settings and rim and tires too because it is a pretty stiff bouncy ride which a lot of I believe has to do with the fact they want almost 50psi in the tires just to hold the weight of the car because they picked such a "small" tire. I did nothing but rims and tires for about 8 years before we expanded and opened our repair shop so I know I can find a wheel and tire combo that will hold the weight with less air pressure.

And I'm not a big fan of the auto start/stop technology when you come to a light, especially in a turbo car. But it's not a big deal since you can disable it easily.

I also recommend the RAP protection plan if they offer it to you. It's about 2000 extra but ford will cover literally everything on the car up to 75000 miles even for natural wear and tear and it also covers any aftermarket parts. So if i bought some volk wheels and broke 1 of them ford will buy me another volk wheel. If i flog it to death and kill the turbo or the trans or engine, ford will replace it at no cost. And in my situation ford will pay for ANY parts that break on it AND pay me to install them in my own car since I'm certified. I made sure of that because the last warranty work I had done at the Ford dealer on my last focus was pitiful and I had to do it again myself 15000 after they "fixed" it.

Anyways I'll post pics and stuff later today, I'm about to go for a drive haha
