Very exciting. I'll be playing with this at work today. Post up info about what you did with the configurator.

As far as I can see though, the configurator doesn't let you build an RS model. You can see the packages, but when you go to build one you can't choose an RS.

Correct me if I am wrong.

The configurator works. Select build you own, choose hatch, then RS is at the bottom.

There arent a whole ton of options to add as it seems like it comes standard with most things. I will definitely get the RS2 package. Its cold up here in the winters and heated seats, steering wheel and mirrors will come in handy.:D

Yup, RS2 in Nitrous Blue. I'm sticking with the regular wheels and tires. I need a little more treadlife so the Super Sports will do better than the Cup2s. I might get the forged wheels with regular tires. It all depends on how much they weigh. $40,082. For the performance and equipment it's a bargain. I'm excited about Sync3, too.

Pretty sweet deal for $40k, but i'm sure there will be those that will be turned off by the price and look elsewhere, maybe even venturing out to the used car market for a used fast 4 door, there sure are plenty of those.

don't think I'll add the RS2 pack, adds most superfluous lux stuff. Sync 3 comes regardless :D Which tires is everyone thinking about? the regular summer tire or the track tire? ;)

The configuration tool made me so happy this morning.

But sadden at the fact that the two options of seats are either the partial leather Recaros or the full leather Recaros and not the Racing seats that are shown in most of the pictures. :(

I was really looking forward to that being an option that we could add to the vehicle.

I know what you mean but i'm not all too surprised since car makers typically show the highest spec'd model but might not tell you that at first, but then let you know through what you see through official info, much like what we're seeing here.

They don't meet US crash regs unfortunately...

just wish we were getting something like the mustang has and not the chunkier option from the ST

I'd be up for swapping in some BOSS 302 style seats and the good thing about this is there's bound to be folks out there that want to buy your Focus RS seats, so selling them won't be a problem, easy way to make up for the money spent on your new seats ;)
