Thread: Ford Focus Mk3.

Other than it being an RS, I'm not entirely certain of what I'm looking at here (an actual car, a foreign version or just a concept), but I have to admit that I like the overall looks of this car. I'm going to soon need a new daily driver - the Subie WRX is getting some age on her. If I could get this particular car, with this particular styling, as a turbo 4 cylinder with AWD (gotta have AWD), I would head to the dealership this summer. Sadly, I'm less than thrilled with the styling of the new WRX's. Just like the Jaguar XK8, after the 2005 MY, I feel that the styling went down the tubes.
For a daily driver, this car is me: the middle aged dude that refuses to accept that he's not 25 any longer.

(Well it is a fraud in a way since it is merely a fwd car, a samhe when the essentially identical Mazda can be had with the same excellent Duratec/PZ and AWD)
The new Sub-a-rat, since it is essential a cheesoid set up in the rear every biyt as weak and flimsy as the Frod F%ck-us and it even looks nearly the same, is known as a Suck-us.
But the new short black skirt is not new but old:
More fun, less bother.
Stick a good multi-plate diff in the back and good tires and you'lll have more fun at fractions of the cost.
(Says the man who will be un-awd-ing his 4x4 Cosworth rally car soon)
I'd suggest a nice 240 Volvo turbo built right....with the right parts.
More fun than a Subie costsing 10 times as much.
Nobody want to see what the oem suspension looks like in these F)(ked-us?
