Looks fantastic, congrats.
I'm seriously tempted with one myself, almost every day I have a look at Focus RS Direct!
What spec is yours? Lux pack 1/2? Half leather?

Check out Focus RS Direct for tuning/styling bits - they look great with spacers on...

I'm always a bit sceptical of spacers on the front of the RS.

The whole point of the revoknuckle is to lower the kingpin offset and minimise the effects of torque steer, but by extended the pivot point of the wheels outwards wth spacers you are messing with that setup.

I know most will fit them purely for aesthetic resons ... but worth bearing in mind.

Cheers Sheps. Not sure which it has. It has leather, reverse sensors and auto lights that I've noticed. As for mods apart from her wanting the wheels and bonnet vents black there will be no money in the goodies fund for a bit.

If you have digital climate control you have Lux 1, sat nav and you have Lux 2.
Neither and you have the standard RS.

It has digital climate control so It will be lux 1 then. Do you know if they come with a USB port.

USB was an option an option along with Bluetooth. If you have USB it will be under the center armrest. Here's the original brochure, you should be able to figure it all out from that.
