    Hi everyone.

    I just wanted to say hello and say that I’m looking forward to being part of the Ford RS community, so please be gentle with me. This will be my first Fast Ford, as I’ve had Subaru’s for the past 17 years.

    Due to take delivery mid March of a Nitrous Blue RS with Lux pack, Forged wheels, Blue calipers and Sync3 upgrade.

    Looking forward to bringing to to a few meets over the summer.

    Hi Matt , welcome to the club mate.

    Not long till you pick up the car then. I love mine definitely worth the wait and had no problems with it so very happy.

    Just curious Matt what made you go for the  Ford RS rather than a Subaru this time.



    A few bits and pieces added

    Hi Matt

    Welcome aboard buddy, good choice with the Scooby I am still running one, what models have you had over the 17 years?

    What part of London you based north/south/East?

    My RS should arrive in March so look forward to seeing you at a show or similar in 2017

    Hi Paul.

    Yes not long to wait now, but truthfully we only been waiting about 4 weeks. I managed to find a dealer that had a build slot booked for a demo car they were planing on getting and it had the spec we wanted and said they would sell us the car instead of registering it as a demo. Result.

    To answer your question about why the switch from Subaru ?

    Where ive had them for many years now and still really love them. The new WRX STI just doesn’t really do it for me and I’ve been waiting for another manufacturer to make a good 4wd car, as I love the sure footedness of 4wd in all conditions  and the new RS seemed like it’s a great choice as a replacement.

    Thanks Dom. I did try and find a nice classic STI a few years ago, but unfortunately every car I looked at wasn’t very well cared for, so decided to leave it in the end. The RB320 was just an awesome car, which my dad had from new and kept for 6 years.
