By slamming an RS you would be wasting all of the money you paid to get the RS suspension. I mean you are just going to be removing all of the engineering that went into making the car handle great. Since you don't really care about performance and are more focused on looks, you could get an SE that has no performance, slap a body kit and some coilovers and get the look you are after. Save a bunch of money!



But like you said, do what you want. Not my money you are throwing away

I'm with you - I'll never understand buying a car of this nature and then essentially replacing what made it "special". But yea, it's their money - they can do what they want.

Exactly what I thought, things I would do will complement it, things like a better wheel and tire profile for the track, the list goes on. But for now and for a while driving it as it is, is the best thing to do, get used to it, then seek upgrades.

You may as well just get a Focus Si and replace those parts instead.

There are several aftermarket spring, spring/shock, and coil over set-ups already here for the RS. Many lower from .7" to 1" in the front, and 1" in the rear. I go do CJ Ponyparts site all the time, drool, and make a wish list! I had the KW V3 Coilovers on my 2014 Fiesta ST, and they were GREAT, but I had NO idea how and where to set all those potential damping/rebound knobs!! For the RS, KW also makes a set of coilovers that allows us to KEEP the ride settings (N/S/T/Drift) as well, and they have the largest potential to raise or lower the car! GOOD LUCK figuring out where to set the shocks. Also, EXPENSIVE: $3300+!
