If anything goes by the older RS, mk1 or mk2 then the depreciation will be minimal! Always 1 plus side to RS models is that they hold their money very well.

I think it looks a cracking car!

No doubts Mountune will be along with 400bhp for very little and will keep warranty in tact aswell. Far better than the Abarth alternatives for ££££.

    Personally i would have the golf R.Handsome/neat looking car.The focus just shouts chav at me but im sure its a hoot to drive.The styling is aggressive and will have its fans but it aint for me.Looks like its crashed into a halfords shop and the bits just stuck on.
    Now with added monza fun :P

    Looks a bit boring compared to old ones, going the conservative route like VW and the Golf but it has everything I want in a family car.  :thumb:

    Said the same thing when I bought the Mk1 FRS, shame the Ford dealer scammed me to make more profit! :thumbd:

    It's no where near as aggressive looking as it could have been.  But its been designed for the mass market, and they need it to sell worldwide, so tamed it down a bit.

    Not the best looking, but my other half will be getting one when they eventually are released.   :thumb:

    If you are talking about the ordinary Focus then yes, I thought we were discussing the RS..

    I'm still all for the new civic type r over that.
    My mate has a rs focus, very nice and they seem to loose very very little in value as well which is good if you have one!

    I'm afraid I have to disagree with that, I bought a new one in 2010, paid £31k for it and had it for 2 years and lost £14k. By far my worst car, within a year the interior trims were squeeking and that's a pain in the a**.

    Honda are going about their business wrong as well, Type-R's should be stripped down light weight cars, that's what ruined the FN2, it was to heavy. I've had 3 EP3's and loved them all, fantastic cars. Always fancied a EK9 but hard to find a good one.
