time", most of you will shout back - 1996 was the last time
an RS was produced by Ford, and by RS standards the wait untill 2002
when the FocusRS finally hit our street was long enough for RS fans...
- Its here now, and was it worth the wait? Well by current owners

of the RS pedigree...?
Future - What will it hold for the FocusRS..? Will it ever get

Well only time will tell but you can be sure if sales of the FocusRS
go well then somewhere, somebody will sign that all important piece
of paper to get the ball rolling....
