Focus RS

Had this for a almost a day.

Nice car, fast and comfortable as you would expect from a new car.

I was surprised with the exhaust note and general sound of the engine. It sounded great and encouraged you to give it some. Pops and bangs on gear changes

In general, I liked it.

But still, its not and Evo

Had mine for a few weeks now and 1,100 miles.

Really fun to drive, but as you say it's no Evo.

Enjoy

Which remap are you using if you don't mind me asking?

I've bought a pe-owned DreamScience iMap, but haven't flashed the car with it yet due to having a temperamental O2 sensor that keeps throwing my CEL on.

I think it might be worth your while checking with ND about the DS stuff before using it. We are using Collins stuff which has been on the car from 3 days old

But still a nice car
