Hi everyone,

I am glad to join a group of current and future FoRS owners. My '16 FoRS just arrived on Thursday, Oct. 6 but I am unable to take delivery until a recall is completed. Apparently, there is an issue with the US standards of opening the hatch. I ordered the car in February and I have been itching to drive this car.

I took a bunch of pics of the car but I was limited in space since it was in the dealership's showroom.

Thank you for having me.

Best regards,
Mike

Hi Mike,

A very warm welcome to our Forum. I am an overseas member and find this forum full of good and useful information. Hope you take delivery of you new set of wheels soon, when you do I am sure you will enjoy driving it. Look forward to seeing more of your postings and thanks for the photos you posted.

Welcome to the forum! Did they give you a time estimate of when the recall work would be completed?

At least they fenced off your Focus RS so the general populace won't be touching it while it's waiting for recall work.

I was told the recall work should be completed in Mid-October. I am hopeful that next week I will be driving this car.

Welcome to the forums, I can only imagine how bad that itch is getting just waiting to drive her outta there. Definitely love the black though just because those blue calipers scream out at you.

Welcome to the forum.

Hopefully you won't leave us once the new Honda Civic Type R comes out because with the way its shaping up, i'm sure we'll get some ex-Focus RS owners....

Really interested to see how many people are actually waiting for it to change their minds. Gonna be a bunch of comparison videos when it comes out it'll be crazy.

The Civic Type-R looks kinda like an STI to me. While it does look good, for some reason the current STI model reminds me of a Carolla body. Btw, I finally was able to take delivery for my FoRS yesterday. I have been driving all day today with a mix of highway and town driving.

Sweet! Always liked how these look in black, first one I saw in black had a Mountune license plate frame and had some obvious hints that it had some aftermarket goodies going on.
