That have to be one of my most favorite cars in the country. Pocket-Rocket sorts. Great buy sam, Love the Car, Love the color, Love the Rims, Love everything on it !!

What is the OTR price of the car buddy ? Just to see if it is time to break my piggy-bank

Great catch dude!!! Looks like a real beast. I wish I could take it for a spin!!!

Do Ford India has plans of launching Focus in India? I had driven the europian model (not the sport model though) - Ford Focus 1.6 and 1.8 Petrol. they were quite good as a mid range cars to drive around with less maintanance. But I'm sure RS will defenitely be a Beast! to squeeze the juice out

Great pics sam! This is probably the hottest hatch in the world and it feels good that there is one in Mumbai! The rear diffuser is huge!
So how difficult is it to drive this beast in the city? Ground clearance issues, low rear visibility...
Would love to hear the exhausts!

no ground clearance issues at all, pretty smooth, its a beast in the first gear. rides like a peach and handling is as smooth and responsive as it can be. Ford wont be launching this in India, it is launching the ford focus sedan which kind off a pussy cat compared to this lion . Mitsubishi will be launching the evo x but a tuned down version for the indian roads.

Very youthful garage you've got there Sam!!
One helluva hatch and not one, but 2 jet skis - that's just superb.
An ownership review on all 3 is expected!!

I think I have seen your 166 before...here's the link to it: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...ed-mumbai.html (Alfa Romeo 166 spotted in Mumbai!)

Also, is the torque steer a big problem in the RS? Ford says, to reduce torque steer, the RS uses an Automatic Torque Biasing LSD, and a specially designed MacPherson strut suspension at the front which provides a lower scrub radius and kingpin offset than traditional designs while avoiding the increased weight and complexity of double wishbone and multi-link suspension setups.

actuly not.. in the first gear yes but otherwise its smooth. yes they have added the ATB LSD system for this car but handles great

You mean yours is a RS500? Or did you get the Montune Ford-approved package?
