Mk3 Focus RS Club
Steve Walters. I live in Stone, Staffordshire, IT Consultant and Associate Director, and I have a Focus RS mk3 on order since 4th Feb. This will be my first RS and my first true performance car, but I have always loved these cars since the days of the RS1600 (yes I’m that old)
Previous cars owned if any note (simply because they were so good) were a Renault Laguna Sport, Freelander 2 and my current Focus mk2 zetec s. The rest can easily be forgotten.
The spec for my mk3 is Nitrous Blue, Black forged alloys, Lux Pack, painted calipers, Sync system. Only the lottery and fate knows when I will get it, but I am a C order so common opinion thinks possibly before Christmas at this time also on the Focus RS Owners Club forums
Jordan, Lancaster, North West, probably one of the youngest to order as I’m 21.
Previous Cars: MG ZR, Seat Leon FR
My is specced: Stealth Grey, Recaro Shell Seats, Black Alloys, Lux Pack, Painted Calipers, Sync2
Build Code C

I live in Wigan near KMS, ive always had Fords, especially Escort Cosworth, Focus RS mk1 and mk2 then I got a wife and a boy! So now have a Kuga and fiesta zetec s. I’m keeping my hand and eye on the various mk3 sites and forums just incase I get the chance to get the mk3. Hmmm, I may have to sell the wife!?

i had an UG mk2 RS couple years ago and miss it so would love a mk3 in UG again! I also had a Series 2 RS Turbo when was 20 ?
Hi, I’m Kerry-Ann and I live in Bracknell. I’m a full time mummy! I did have a UG mk2 focus Rs but had to sell as wasn’t big enough for my family. I’ve ordered the NB mk3 I don’t go for seats, sunroof or door petectors. Ordered 23rd sept 2015. Have a build date of 20th may 16.!
Hello all, only ordered my RS a couple of weeks ago… so have some time to wait, hopefully it’ll be here before June 2017 when the contract runs out on my BMW……
Hi Phil from Cambridgeshire can’t wait until I get my hands on my RS
Hi all, I’m Adrian from Rugeley Staffs but now Living in Perth Australia.
I’m coming back to Ford as i currently drive a HSV Clubsport (VXR8)
I have owned 5 Sierra cosworths over the years, one 3 door and 4 shaphys, absolutly love my RS’s and have a Frozen White Mk3 on order due over here 1st November & i cant wait (like most who have an order i expect) Its hard watching everyone in the UK collect their cars as it’s not even out over here yet, June i think is the release date.
Hopefully the pictures and storys on here will help tied me over until my RS arrives! 🙂
My old Cossie before i moved out here, i do miss her!

Hi Steve, dont worry about being old and ordering a Focus RS !! I can vaguely recall watching England on telly winning the 1966 World cup as a 3 year old and remember the moon landings quite clearly !! oh, and as for you mentioning the RS1600… Ive had one since 1983 and im really hoping the Focus can give me at least nearly as good a “buzz” as when I drive the BDA !!
No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.
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.
