Enjoy that 'keeper'.
Spot on with that determination. This RS is Focus #7 for me and the longest one I owned was the 2002 ZX5 Zetec for 13 years and 225K miles. My wife's daily driver 2011 SES Duratec is going on 7 years old and 150K miles. Plan on making it to 300K with that SES. If my new RS can last anywhere near as long as these other Focus cars I will be ecstatic.

What machines do you have? 3401 or a Rupes or a Griots Boss?

I can only imagine how fast the RS is. Be careful with it. Happy times.

Almost moved up to a 3401 but I have been working so many years with my 7424XP and Lake Country pads never did. Machine not so much as important to me as the products used. I am a huge German made Menzerna polishing product guy. Been liking their correction products for a long time. Also have Meguiar professional line too. I am a big Clay guy but recently bought a Cobra clay mitt and its great. For finishing I have a few different glaze products that I have been liking and also using 4star UPP as a last step product over or under one of my glaze products for a long time. I have used so many correction and LSP wax/sealants over the years I have a 4 shelf wire rack with all of them on it in my house...lol. Used to use the hand applied Carnauba waxes for my show cars but that got costly and mostly use glazes and sealants today.

Thanks. For its size it feels real quick. But coming from my 2003 and 2004 Cobras then a 2014 Shelby GT500 the Shelby could put a short scare in me sometimes with its power. The RS is a different animal though because of its Go Kart handling and size with the AWD plus its power you do need to be careful.
