Focus RS or Focus SVT?

How many of you guy's would have either a Focus RS or a Focus SVT?

I personally would prefer the RS over the SVT simply because the RS is looks to be a more complete package.

I mean the styling of the RS looks more intergrated where the SVT has a tacky add-on look to it with the front bumper and side mouldings.
I think the RS beats the SVT in handling as well. The RS being developed in Europe has an advantage over the SVT in the way that the European versions of mainsteam Focus models already have quite a sporty nature where as the US versions of Focus budget models have been more soft.

Anyway thats my opinion.......

Smile RS - yes please

I already drive a Panter Black 1800 Zetec 3 door.
If I could trade in the wife & kids I would be posing in the RS - No worries.
Colin - we are all routing for you in the Network Q rally of GB.
Don't let that smarmy git Burns get the better of you!

OK you FOCUS folks. We have a few of you now. PLEASE, why don't you recruit some folks from the OTHER Focus message bords that you may belong to get them here. I would be MORE THEN WILLING to set this area up, expand it to what ever you want if we can see some more bodies in here. Next time you post to another Focus forum or club on yahoo or what ever, plug us. This could really be you new home, set up how you see fit if you can bring some folks in here.

Neither please!

I love my Maliblu ZX3...and it was darn cheap! I can make my focus perform and handle better without spending the extra $$ on the SVT or RS.
