    It's not Grabber Blue! Grabber Blue is a solid with no metallic, Ford is calling this Nitrous Blue and it's actually loaded with a fine metallic... It doesn't photograph well though, but the color is F-56ing AMAZING! It's almost like those Snowflake Mirrors I did last year but without the heavy flake.

    Agreed with Dave, I don't like that it's a 4-door even if it's a stiffer chassis.... And nothing is really there to make me like the look past the paint.

    Very nice car, but man that pond scum green color doesn't do it for this old fart. Now that thing painted the new RS blue would be wonderful.

    Crash mode selected instead of drift mode. Cars with modes???

    Yep... Driving modes don't make the car do what you want it to... Practice and skill does.

    Some say they'd rather be lucky than good. I'd like both in equal measure.

    I like our Focus ST just fine and the RS would make a nice upgrade. But the wife car get in enough trouble in the ST.

    Sure I would prefer a 2 door so here's hoping the rumored Fiesta RS comes to production. Since it's likely to come from Europe like the Focus maybe we'll get the 2 door.

    Extremely doubtful, but hoping on that miracle.
