Probably the same way you refused to acknowledge certain terms in the past because you didn't know about them yet, so therefore they weren't real.

Oh, wow, it's not even Redditese, it's an actual phrase that has been used way before the Internet, hell, before English even. How did I not know this?

Do note that I'm not fluent in Redditese as the only Reddit I frequent is /r/EliteDangerous. I do know at least some Traditional Chanspeak, however.

Also, the correct answer as to why you've never heard of this phrase is because you never watched Lucky Star and got curious about the lyrics to the opening song.

:bump:

Power output has been revealed at 345hp and the US price was released by mistake but apparently starts at $35,730. Was hoping it would stay in the low 30s but still better bang for the buck than the STi and Evo for sure.

That's about what I was expecting, priced around its competition. Easily over $40k when all said and done, but still a fair amount of car for the money.

I'm glad they're sticking to the universal specs of the car for the US market. I'd still like to see Ford bring over some of its' global engines for the Focus instead of sticking to the NA 2.0L that they've used since the beginning.

It's $36.6k with delivery, but still, awesome price for a car that based on some insider info I've got is VERY competitive out of the box. Like, throw a base model at the USCA and take podiums competitive.

The general enthusiast consensus has been that this will replace the Evo's segment of the market, but that's simply untrue. This eclipses it completely in performance ability alone. The Evo X will be 8 year old tech when the RS releases, and it will certainly make it look like it.

There are also rumors floating around that Mazda is working on an AWD Mazdaspeed 3 that will be in the 300 pony department. If it's true, that will easily fill the void the departing Evo X will create.

The Focus RS will basically be in its own category. Priced like a Golf R but performs as good but probably better than an Audi RS3.

The RS is pretty sweet and all, but the price is pretty high up here in Canada, the base price is $46,969 (it's $10k more than the base STi, about $8k cheaper than the Golf R) which is kinda the only disappointing thing about it IMHO.

Personally I'd get a 2003 Focus and drop JAM a Chevy LSX in there...

99:1 suspension FTW!! awesome.gif

btw, I wasn't being sarcastic... I seriously think putting an L~anything engine on any vehicle can make it a thorough breed~ figuratively speaking. biggrin.gif

I think it's fairly priced here in the US, at least in terms of MSRP:

Focus RS: $35,730+
WRX STI: $34,695+
Evo GSR: $34,495+
Golf R: $35,650+

Of course, the actual dealer price might make it noncompetitive. Also, I haven't taken into consideration the features that these cars offer.

Going to have to take the RS for a spin one day. dribble.gif

It's certainly at the top of my Yes list and offers the best bang for the buck among the 4 cars listed above. The Evo is on its way out so the Focus RS is a welcome sight on these shores.

You're paying for what you get with the Focus RS, and it is way more car than the competition.

Yes, but the right place to jam it into a hatch would be where the rear seats are... I.e. Festiva Shogun. tongue.gif

Seems like it's way more fairly priced over there. Funny thing is that it's technically cheaper to get the RS here, since the price in the US, when converted to Canadian dollars, is about 3-4 thousand dollars more than the price of the RS here.

Focus RS: $46,969+
WRX STI: $37,995+
EVO GSR: $41,998+
Golf R: $39,995+

Idk if it's been mentioned before, but don't forget about the mark up for the Focus RS. I mean I am not sure how it is in in the mainland US or around the world. But here in Hawaii the RS goes for a minimum of $40k (Everything cool here has mar up, it's ridiculous) I have a friend that works at a Ford dealership and I was legit going to try and get one through him. But he can't even get one at MSRP.
