You won't here any cruel comments from me, I forget if it was the Focus RS or Fiesta RS Jeremy Clarkson tested on "Top Gear", all I remember was it was an electric green. Whichever one of the two it was, I know I'd give must more than just a kidney for it!! B) :lol:

I own a focus ST,and it's been remapped and chipped which now takes me from the standard 225bhp to the new 295bhp.which at half of the price of the RS gives me the same bhp as the RS B)
But i still would give both my kidneys for one in the old schools RS green.mabe in a years time when they drop in price........

I see these cool European Fords on Top Gear from time to time and think, 'Why can't we have these cars here in America?'

Not necessarily my cup of tea as well, but I DO like that Electric Blue Focus RS!

Everyone has their likes and dislikes.......I'm just not a real big fan of FWD cars and their proportions. If they look pretty cool as those look, than the somewhat odd proportions can be overlooked. B)

We don't get some cool stuff due to product planners and bean counters. These ppl are so cheap, they turn their bar stools upside down so they can seat four.

EDIT: Dave, u went to Portugal? Wish I could afford to travel. I can't even afford to go to Portland. Any one of them.

I saw a regular Ford Festiva while I was out the other day, that was the first one I can remember seeing. Considering that they have been on sale here since last summer I don't think they are selling as well as Ford would like, I don't think that an RS model would help much.

You know Roger, even for as big as I am, I still fit in those little cars nearly as well as I do my Cherokee :rolleyes: What shocked me is that the new Charger R/T's don't have more than an extra inch of "thigh" or shoulder space than those little Fiestas do <_<

I recently traded in my 05 Dodge Dakota(SLT,V-8,34000 mi.)on a 2011 Ford Fiesta for better gas mileage,and boy did I get it.How 'bout 43 MPG Average.
By the way,I'm 6ft3 and around 280 lbs.,and it fits me just fine.
So far,it's a very cool little car!
