most here in the UK are not that impressed with the new RS as we think its a wrong move making them a 5 door plus they simply look like ST on steroids rather than the flagship model

I can see that. Just us in the States are just excited to have one in general. I mean its our first US-RS!!!

So the excitement level is high on US Soil. But I can see how it's not so much over in the UK ... you guys have had the opportunity to have all of the RSs from the Escort Cosworth the last version of the Focus RS. [mecry]

interior looks just like mine except for the different seats really. Basically a 2015 ST3 interior package. Nice vehicle
I agree.... but at least they added blue stitching. They needed to change that useless dash pod into a functional digital boost gauge.

are the bucket recaro heated and adjustable.

im thinking that it might be better to have the regular seats anyway because their heated and more adjustable. maybe more comfortable for long hauls

Am I the only one who thinks the drifting handle (ie. E-brake ) is not in a great location if they hype about the car it's a drifters dream car??? From a drifters point I would of put it either up higher or other side of console. It's not a very good ergonomic position to yank on and try to steer at same time.

Due to the locking nature of a stock parking brake, I highly doubt they would recommend using it for drifting.

You don't use the handbrake to drift in the RS. It's done by being aggressive with weight transfer, softening up the suspension and loosening up the reigns on the traction control.
