Great choices!I'm getting the "retarded" treatment too. This spring I was looking at a used M235i Xdrive.. but then I heard about the FoRS.... I'm 44.
Yeah.Seems like the Focus RS is going to attract pretty wide age range of buyers. I like that. Makes it a great product. Its for the young (and the young at heart).

Millennials -- also known as Generation Y -- accounted for 27 percent of new car sales in the U.S. last year, up from 18 percent in 2010, according to J.D. Power & Associates. They’ve zoomed past Gen X to become the second-largest group of new car buyers after their boomer parents. Millennials are starting to find jobs and relocating to the suburbs and smaller cities, where public transport is spotty.
So perhaps they will have a stock version that older buyers will tend towards, and then a bunch of tech options that millennials will be willing to shell out for.Millennials are willing to spend more than 50 percent more for new technologies in automobiles than baby boomers, a J.D. Power survey found.
At an average of $3,703 a vehicle, millennials topped boomers at $2,416 and Generation X members at $3,007, the Westlake Village, California-based research firm said in a statement. The findings were presented Wednesday at an Automotive Press Association luncheon in Detroit.
