Dave, have you seen the mk3 RS in real life yet? if so, how big does it look compared to the BRZ. I know its a hatch but my question still holds!

No, but it's a standard Focus hatchback body so fairly easy to compare. It's a lot taller for sure.


I will see the RS in person tomorrow, when I'm not focused on driving the GT350.

If you can, drive your BRZ to the place and crash through the barriers so you can park the brz next to the RS

I'm going to sell a few cars though to make it happen with a more easily dealt with monthly payment.
To me this seems like one of those cars that is milestone enough to warrant buying it new. This is the way the RS should have been from the start. Revoknuckle was cool and innovative but felt like a band-aid IMO.

Maybe one day ford will consider an AWD configuration for the stang.... . Don't shoot me

Went to the local dealer today to pick up my wife's new fusion. They want a $5k premium over msrp, I told them if they wanted to sell it at sticker to give me a call. They said they were only getting 3.

Stupid camera and rotation. I'll fix that I guess when I'm on a machine with gimp on it.

I like it, but not that color really.


I really want to drive one though. Hopefully they'll do some track tours with it. Driving the GT350 on track was a blast when it wasn't a train. Passing was restricted to one section one car at a time and it was only two laps. Ugh.

this car looks really good on paper, the only two things that bug me :
- Brake-biased torque vectoring system: I wish they offered a more advanced system like the one in Evolution X and the GT-R (both share the same type of mechanical torque vectoring)
- The price, $36k MSRP is a bit steep since it's the Camaro SS and Mustang GT territory but if the car can be purchased for low 30s (which I don't see it happening anytime soon) it would be a better deal IMO
