    Welcome back!

    That’s a pretty good “who’s who” list of hot hatches. So, clearly the RS appeals (with the return), but what did you like the best about the others?

    Wow you have gone through them all. Defo would love to hear what you thought of them all.

    I came from a mk7.5 GTI and thought it was great, best interior in its class imo.

    New RS looks fantastic. Best colour too.

    Hello everyone, rs clubs great I won the kochie chemie polish kit a while back, Kenny’s got a great site and club here, answer to your questions, the golf was built well but boring after the RS, the A45 build quality was fantastic from an engineering point of view and very fast with a very safe 4wd system  but saw a ex demo fk8 honda for sale and honda gave me a great partex deal so went for it, the technology in the honda is fantastic and how they sort no torque steer was impressive and felt like it could stoppie on the brakes but struggles with our British winter, the cupra, same again fwd struggles but great handling in the dry and the  dsg box works so well to get the power down fast through the gears, so I’m back to an RS because I think it suits our UK roads and conditions and I was always comparing the other cars handling and feel to the RS and always missed it

    That looks sweet ! Judging by the price I’m guessing its a 2016 ( because if its a 2017 I’d be gutted they dropped that much!) Is that definitely sync3 as the screen display is unlike my sync3 ! Or has it been updated like G4ffa did years back? could it even be his old car?

    Upgrade SYNC 2 to SYNC 3



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    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’m sure that no MY2016 RS’s on a “16” plate came with Sync3. The earliest with Sync3 were “66” plates around Nov/Dec 2016. And the photos on Monarch’s WS certainly show a Sync2 system and describe a 2016/16 – if this is the same car currently being advertised as under offer (http://www.monarchenterprises.co.uk/current-stock/cars/2016-16-ford-focus-rs/). Must be a misprint in the description.
