What is it with Rs 1 owners and thinking they have some sort of holy grail of an FRS. It's a ground effects body kit slapped with a special color and a quad tip exhaust for an extra 5 grand... Don't be so down. For 5 grand you can build your own "RS1" and I bet you can do better than scion.

Anyways don't mean to sound insensitive.. Keep your chin up. Insurance will more than likely cover everything you need and just keep an open mind to potential possibilities.. Miata.. Facelift frs.. focus rs, whatever gets your jollies going.

Gotcha. It is what it is. Everyone is different. Obviously you and I value things differently.

Glad you're ok man. Other than the focus, any other cars on your short list? Hopefully you're not after the 2017 refresh (looks like a catfish to me now).

In the grand scheme of things, a ruined car isn't that bad. It really could be much worse, but I'm sure it ruined your day. It's a good excuse to get to try a different platform though.

I think maybe what @raven1231 is talking about, when you referenced the "worst day of your life", is that some of us have been through war, divorce, death of a spouse ...... events like that ......

It's a shame about your car. Glad you are OK.

Yes this indeed. A wrecked car or lost material item is nothing as long as you're OK. Things could be much worse...

Holy shit! My sympathies, friend. I'm happy that 1) You didn't cause it and 2) you're ok and 3) you can possibly get a settlement.

It is a special edition and therefore is... well ...special. I would be pissed if my special edition (regardless of what that consists of) was destroyed. Sure of course you can make one that looks like it but that doesn't make it one. There are more 68 Malibu SSs on the road today then there was in 1968 but that doesn't mean they are the special edition car.


May be tough to replace with the same thing so maybe trying a new platform would be in order.

It always hurts when your pride and joy gets stuffed! Are you sure you're okay as the shock may have skewed your mind? Why you may be thinking.... Ford Focus RS!!!

Push button start, the seats, the paint, and the steering wheel will be expensive or difficult to replicate. If he wanted just a yellow FR-S, that in itself would've tough to replicate without losing a ton of money to do it right.

Glad you're okay and hoping you don't have any medical issues like whiplash or backaches. I'd feel the same way if that happened to me. Take care dude!
