Looks great.  The new Focus RS looks a bit tame in comparison.

I agree the new one does sod all to me and it had better be good mechanical wise or there will be a lot of dedicated RS owners pissed off .

So in the Volvo world it is acceptable to make your T5 look like an R. In the RS world is it acceptable to make your ST look like an RS or do they get upset?

There is an RS seller in Yate, RS Direct, next to my friendly tyre place, always seems to shift his stock rapidly. The tyre fitters love the Fiddy, they always request I leave rapidly up the road, apparently it sounds quite good

Some gets pissed off mate as they think all the parts come from nicked cars even though I bought most of mine from kids on the RS forum.

Who cares what other people think, as long as you're happy with how your car looks then who cares what other people think. ST's need tarting up, as honestly I think they're pieces of shit no offence I do think yours looks nice.

I think it looks the muts nuts with all the work and mods that have gone into it beside RS'S are still fetching 17k minimum so Bill has something that looks like the Ltd RS 500 and goes as well! I would have it all day long!

All in good time! What about a full carbon wrap? way cheaper than a paint job but i am not sure how long they last or how resistant they are to stone chip?

Either way I think its a wicked car and you have done so much with it.

I thought about wrapping it but like you said not sure on how long it would last' I'm going to have a go at fixing the paint job one panel at a time' I have a stage 4 Revo ecu and sps switch to go on my car when the weather get better ' I know a kid in London who can flash it to my car so might have a drive down and let him do my facelift clocks at the same time.

All sounds good stuff Alan it is supprising how much improvement can be had with a decent cutting compound and polishing especially when it's done with a machine.

If it was an issue with ECU why are they asking you to pay?

Revo wanted the reg the ecu was on even though I said it has your software on it but wouldn't accept any of the settings saying forced stock mode and would need a re flash so I said no way am I paying 800 quid as you know its your software on it.

 

and revo is more aggressive boost  compaired to Collins Toque based map.

 

slippery slope Greg as ever lol.

Thanks goes to Tim for all the help trying to fit the wrong fuel pump that I bought and the head work he had to do after my fooking thick mate decided to turn my car over while I was in the bog ' bending nearly every inlet valve.

 

And Craig for helping me Today I owe you one mate .
