Its not a bad looking car, although you could have got something considerably faster for your money.

Ive seen 1.4 16v Corsa's beat these things, even a 1.2 16v gives them a damn good run for their money.

I assume its just a 2.0?

Oh and if you'd like to see it handle well you want to get it on some coilovers wink.gif

Who cares how fast it is. I didnt buy my 98 trans am ws6 for the 5.0 0-60 and 13.4 1/4 mile times. I bought it because it looks good and is a chic magnet.

Just for a laugh my dads Vauxhall astra ESTATE pulled away from this thing lol but meh it was a giggle

Focus RSs are freekin awesome... I wish they made them here in the States (American car.. I know, it's rather stupid that they make European exclusive trims and models).

MR2s are cool too, at least they've got good weight distribution. tongue.gif

no sierras
no RS500s
no Cosworth anything
no XR2i or XR3i

Hell we didn't even get the Puma

no Skylines
no Citron anything
no Opel anything
no Peugeot anything since 1991

We got the 240sx (your 200sx/Silvia) but with a 2.4L truck motor instead of the 2.0L Turbo dry.gif and we never got the S15 chassis of it either.

there are probably hundreds of other cars we never got that I don't even know about...

If it's not an SUV, pickup or front wheel drive luxury sedan the automakers don't want to release it to the US market sad.gif ... it blows

TBH these car makers are missing out the more i look at it, the only way i streched the legs on the RS was to take it to the track or down a Motorway at midnight lol, i would have loved to streched the legs of it on a longer "never-ending" road america style lol. the most i got it to was 140-ish at brands hatch racetrack and that was risking it lol

and the only skyline i ever see is my work mates "Le Mans" r33 Skyline that he paid over the odds for but well...... its worth it lol
