Porkers colour is downright dreadful - that said the matt black wrap will always be hard to keep looking tip top. Have to say the pedigree of the Porsche badge is always going to win hands down and i totally agree that 35k for a Focus is a lot of money - then again i told myself the same thing when i bought my RS and yet i still paid what some would regard silly money for a Ford. I do struggle to put my power down on wet and greasy roads too but i seem to feel more confident in controlling under steer by stepping off the gas quickly to rebalance things than i ever did when the back came round violently in any of my rear wheel drive cars. I also echo what the guy said about the seating position - i do wish the RS' seat would drop down to give that more sporty feel. Without any doubt the RS is a very exciting and raw car and thus far i am absolutely loving every time i get behind the wheel.

Were my eye's deceiving me? did I not see a double exhaust on that porsche? One of the very few visual differences between the 'S' and normal Boxter was always the exhausts.
