    That makes a lot of sense. It was a similar thing with the Fiesta - trying to get that fast feel. Admittedly the tuning and mods have made it much easier to do this, and I can only assume that would be the same case in the Focus RS.

    Basically I want a Focus RS, but can’t justify buying one right now.

    I guess every car has that sweet spot you need to figure out. My Genesis Coupe was the same way.

    And I'm sure the Fiesta feels SO much different. I'm going to drive my friends to see how it feels.

    Dang it I'm back to thinking about getting one of these, especially with KW's adaptive coilovers.

    RIP me trying to save money and driving my paid off car. I've got my eyes on a 2018 possibly. We'll see what our Jalopnik friend at automatch consulting can find for me.

    Aside from this whole head gasket issue, I've got say the RS is by far the best Focus I've owned and I've owned three Focus in the past.

    The head gasket thing has been recalled right? So should be fine once that gets replaced for 2016-2017 models right?
