Finally after almost 2 years.

I have been looking at and wanting a Focus RS for almost 2 years. When I watched the prices dropping about 6 months ago after all the attention the HG issue was getting I figured it was time to move. After owning two base ST1's in 2013 and 2015 I was only interested in the base RS. Being the old fart that I am....lol....do not care about the options and was interested mainly in the handling, AWD and drive train of the RS. I do feel like I stole this new RS. Got it two weeks ago and paid $1230 under invoice for it. That is $100 under hold back and under 35K. Knew the RS was awesome and it does not disappoint. I really liked my ST's so going up another level to the RS is quite fun. This RS is like having a 350hp go kart. So to help that out I took advantage of the DTD presidents day sale and bought a set of Pilot 4S tires to replace the factory PSS tire. Having them mounted tomorrow. I ended up buying Nitrous Blue which I did not think I would like but after getting it I love this color and the pearl finish. Photos absolutely do not show the beauty of this NB color. I did have the HG fixed before taking delivery and my dealer did an expert job. Will think about some mods down the road but in time. Just enjoying this RS for now.

I know its pretty quiet around here in the RS threads and have not been here much since getting rid of my 2015 ST but I still do have my 2011 SES Focus and I am always watching.

Awesome, good for you......<3 the Nitrous blue= Ppl need to see this color in person as the pearl really pops.....I'd be all over making the flakes pop. Don't go cheap on polishes making them pop. Get a bottle of WG(Wolfgang uber compound followed up w/ finishing glaze topped w/ WG's Fuzion carnauba....http://autopia-carcare.com

Thanks. I am a long time detailer and member of Autopia car care. I have a wide array of different polishes and glazes to make that NB pop. It will be a pleasure doing the detail on this RS. Waiting for a little warmer weather in my area and less winter....lol.
