Bored here so thot id share a few pics of my pride and joy also was just wondering if there are any more petrol heads or boost junkies in the group out with catering for my snakes this is my other pass time waxing or driving the car :) spend more time with the car than i do wi the misses lol but i suppose we all need something to keep us sane :)










Its a mk1 focus RS they were limited to 4501 cars ever made for the whole world with just over 2000 coming to the uk and they all have a little build plaque whit there build number mine is 2553 they also only came in 1 spec no added extras and all 4501 are the same colour :) it really is like a baby to me lol (i know im extremely sad) ive owned it 6 years now and have always said id never sell it :) i know alot of you dont have the slight intrest in cars but just thot id ask if any1 else was into there performance or enthusiast/collectors cars :) thanks for looking

I'm not really into cars, but I appreciate a good looking car. You obviously take good care of your car. You wouldn't want to see mine! The kids constantly open the doors into walls. Thankfully I'm never going to sell mine either - nobody would buy it.

That said, I would like to go on a car mechanics course so that I know how the car works and how to service it myself. I hate not knowing anything when bringing it in for service cos I could be told anything by the mechanic and I would just have to take their word for it.

i do like the focus rs ans this shape is the one i prefer from all the focus models.
have you tewaked the engine, exhaust, map ect at all of left is as factory standard?
remember seeing the review on these they did on top gear an they mentioned the problem with the steering due to the torque when you put your foot down, you ever notice this with yours?

still one of my all time favourite cars thats realistically possible to own one day is an r33 skyline saw one drive past me yesterday they are an awesome looking motor
another id love to own is an old porsche 944 great looking little sports cars an you can pick them up for a few grand just need to get my licence.

my brother is well into his cars and spend near 40K on a MK2 golf
had a seat leon cupra r 1.8 turbo lump that was rebored to 2ltr, forged pistons, con rods, uprated crank ect an re mapped to just over 300bhp if i remember right it also had a audi rs4 4wheel drive system fitted
it was featured in performance vw magazine, trying to find some youtube footage of it but will have to ask my brother where to find it

Very nice. I do like my cars and especially Fords as it happens. Had no end of Escorts and Focus'. I've got a 2.8i Capri and a Mondeo ST at the moment.

This is the only car that i`ve only ever really become addicted too, spent about 34,000 on it over an 8 1/2 year period and never regretted one minute of it. Everytime i drove it i had a massive smile. Drove it to Spa and the Nurburgring many times, raced it round the tracks and then drove it back home to Plymouth and it never once broke down.

An awful lot of car for the money, and having driven the other models its also the most comfortable not that that has any relevence in buying one. You buy a car like that because you just want something that is stupidly fast without the Ferrari price tag.
