RS as a daily driver?
 
How would an RS perform as a daily driver vs. an ST? I always see so many used RS models for sale with under 10k miles & was wondering why? Iíve also noticed that many dealers still have brand new 2017 models on their lots. Seems odd?

The RS is way more money.

Whats the price difference.....used vs new? I'd install K/W coilovers for a lot better ride.....

A quick look I see one w/ 25k for 27.700.....Kinda quite a lot of them out there used for sale.....Possibly the h/g issue & the rough ride spooks them....Once the h/g is sorted all you need to do is install a quality c/o kit to smooth out the ride....Seems like it doesn't really need anything, least I would do anything to it but drive it & enjoy it.....They really pull that you don't need to do anything, but drive it & pay it off.........

Dealers driving around and then selling.

Really most likely ppl buying them & figuring its to much car for them....Dealers only put about up to 500 miles on a car.

Agree on that.

Iíd love to drive an RS for one week before I commit to spend 35k+ on a Focus. Iím so curious about the ride quality, the seats, the MPG & the manual shifting. I think the white & gray RS both look sharp! [emoji1305]

If its your only vehicle, figure on getting a quality c/o kit, shifting gears is part of the experience & the mpg is about 20 all around(when not beating on it) + it has a slightly bigger fuel tank compared to the st.....I myself find the rs seats more comfortable then the st3 seats....Have a look at the Nitrous blue...<3 the pearls & thats the correct color for a RS.....It is very addicting to whip around....
