    Yeah had several Rs's. Had a ford escort rs turbo when i was 18. £3700 insurance for a year.

    I am actually thinking about a focus rs now. But i have my heart set on a new van now. So that's priority.

    Same here, had a Escort RS at 18 cost about £3k to insure lol! Then got into cosworths and the show scene, had 2 really nice saphs, the last one I had totally rebuilt, T4 turbo low comp block etc etc etc, wish I still had her now be worth a mint!!

    I am also looking at a mark 2 focus RS been looking for the past 6 months, I will treat myself eventually, just awaiting the sale of our house then will prob get one once thats all sorted out, canna beat a good 5 cylinder turbo!! I'm thinking green as I love the look of them in that colour, but my head says go proper RS and get white.

    The last performance car I had was this RS4, bought it brand new (first time I'd ever bought a new car) and loved it! But lost way way too much money on it!!!

    Keep looking at having another nice motor to cherish and use on the odd day off I get, will most likely be a Focus RS…
