    Bloody hell bob, your making my blood boil.

    The Yaris is now £45k – £60k + add ons and selling fast. Imagine the kind of Fez you could get with that budget.

    Yes, AWD, Yes 280bhp+, Yes bangs & pops, Yes drift mode, Yes CS seats – It should have been released in 2019/20!

    Id rather 2 doors Bob but hey, if it has enough horses, the doors don’t matter.

    @DaveRS3, it was one of 4 concept Fiesta RS submitted for approval, the launch date was for 2018. But for what ever reason Ford canned the Fiesta RS project. The price was rumoured to £32k/£35k at that time.

    M-Sport version, I think you could have ordered one, but the cost was astronomical. I don’t know if you can still order one !

    Hell yes, I even bought a private plate in readiness for a RS Fiesta.  (so I have FRS and RSF both with identical prefix…… also have YRG with same pre-fix, some old beat up Audi had  ‘ GRY)

    You can’t knock the price of the Mk2 GRY, some people have ordered one because they think it’s worth it and better than other cars you can buy for 45K.  Under 60mph it’s still a plasticy Yaris like ya mum drives to the shops, with less features, tyre noise and a stereo you can’t hear.  For sure drive it like a DH and it’s bloody quick.  Though it’s not a homologation special anymore,  so only limited by how much emission tax Toyota wants to pay by not selling  sufficient leccy cars for the offset

    We know Ford would have done a better all-round car because we have the Mk3 Focus RS……. innit.

    Who’s next on the soap box? ….LOL



    Magnetic Grey with all the best bits

    I looked at the Fiesta ST, it was missing something.

     

    I would have gotten this if it was available here in the States.

    Nick, I love my ST3 !!! its far more pointy and go kart feeling than the GR Yaris, the steering is like lazer sharp, compared to numb GR and the suspension feels sharper too. Plus full size spare wheel, better B&O music, sat nav, heated screen, gay heated seats and steering wheel, easy access in rear with 5 doors. and it was £8000 cheaper than the £35000 GR! But I do love the grip and extra 60bhp of the GR !



    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 Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.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?

    No Bob I wouldn’t have bought it.Not enough horses although I like the looks of it. My next car will most likely be an auto as I now have arthritis in my left knee.
