    £320 fitted in the group buy. If we can get enough in your area it might only be a short trip

    PPF recommended too with Fords soft paint. Want to keep the front end chip free, or you might regret it

    If you are getting the black forged rims, don’t rub them or even touch them! you have to wash/clean them using the soft down collected from a 1000 angels chins otherwise you will scratch them to high heaven as the paint is THAT soft.



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    I agree with ADW. Paint Protection Film is a must on the front of these cars

    🙂



    RS Edition.

    The rest of the “M” maps suck

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>As has been said, no high revs or allowing the engine to labour, at least for the first 1k miles. Even after run-in, try and allow a short period for engine warm-up and cool-down. Check fluids weekly, tyre pressures fortnightly….quite high tyre pressures compared to other cars. As for added security, ceramic nano coatings, paint protection film, etc, all a matter of personal choice. If it’s a daily driver, try not to be over-precious about the car or you simply won’t enjoy the whole ownership aspect; instead you’ll worry about the small stuff. If it’s going to be a garage queen/show-car spend as much as you can afford on paint protection, etc. Good tip from 71bda re the black forged wheels….clean properly, but with care. Use a decent nano coating on those regardless of how you are using the car. I put Sonax CC36 on bodywork, wheels and callipers. If you have the shell seats ease your ass in and out over the bolster. Otherwise, use, enjoy, have fun…..and catch yourself grinning a lot….you have an RS.</p>

    @rs rick

    one of the more expensive upgrades, I’d 100% recommend putting an aftermarket exhaust system on it.

    Completley transforms the car, its how an RS SHOULD be.

    From what I’ve been told an aftermarket exhaust won’t make much difference except for the sound. The stock should be a good piece of equipment.
