Anyone going? It's too far away from me, but maybe we have some FocusRSClub members in that area?​

Great opportunity to finally see one in person for the first time. It's also no where near me, but i'll be looking out for coverage, should be a lot of eyes on it.

I like seeing the Focus RS in grey. I think the grey will do really well with some more exciting rims. That may be what I end up going with in the end. I'd really like to go to one of these events that is more of a race series or an enthusiast gathering instead of a car show. I think its partly because of the summer weather but it just looks a bit more festive and community oriented.

Also to note, that was in a showroom which funny enough doesn't do the best job of showing off a color, outside in natural day light and even some sun exposure really helps a color show its best side.
True say.

Always noticing colors, especially metallic, popping in the sun.

I think you need to see it in person first.

BMW has a similar color on its new M5 and in person it's amazing, in pictures it looks MEH
I agree it can look like the car just hasn't been painted yet, but that is why I think you need to add some bling on the rims to do it right. Some bronze rims I think will suit the color nicely.

There is something about the stealth grey I dont like. It almost looks like an unfinished car.
I think because its not a metallic paint it lacks depth in pictures making it look like primer. I bet its got acres of clear on it in person though :D;) I'm with you BTW, bronze or dark gold is the way to go...

I just wish there was move coverage of the RS, some rep camera or more of it in motion. Still, this is one of the only or one of few clips of it so far from this event.
At the rate things are moving at we're bound to see much more about it soon enough.

Can't be too much longer till journalists get their hands on them.
