    Kinda fits under "and fast fords :)"

    Been really busy but did get some pics a few weeks back. Both RS1 package, only option being sunroofs and the GlassCoat treatment.

    Will get some interior shots probably this weekend. Love the car so far, white one is mine, gray is my fathers. I will say, the Shadow Gray does look 100x better in person. The Frost White, blinding in the sunlight. It's ridiculous.

    More pics that weren't posted

    Good looking RS. I just picked up a ST as a daily.

    Pictures finally! Such a badass car. Other than loving it, what do you think of it so far? Little things that stand out? Any complaints? These look so good in white. I generally hate white vehicles but I actually want an RS in white....probably my favorite color on them. I love black but don't want another black daily.

    Still fighting the urge to go buy the NB '16 sitting at the dealer...even though that would be one of the stupidest purchases I could make. Dammit I love these cars

    AT first, i thought it was pretty stiff riding, but now it's either "broken in" or am i used too it again (referring back to my lowered (stiff) 97). I was ok not having the power seats or heated seat/steering wheel. But auto dimming mirrors would be nice again. It feels pretty "luxury" to me, i've seen people say the same, and others argue it. Matter of opinion. I still want to check the alignment bc on harder acceleration and hard braking she's all over the place. I've read a proper alignment will remedy that. When the boost comes on even when stomping on the gas, it still feels super smooth. Not a violent smack of boost hitting you. It's nice for being a daily i think bc it doesnt feel like it's tossing you into the back seat as hard. Aside from that, I dont have any real complaints yet. It does grab a lot of attention.

    Wonder what the difference is in stock front struts
    ST dampening/rebound vs what the RS has?

    I know you now what torque steer feels like, and
    there must be something not stiff enough during
    harder accelerate and hard brake that feels out of
    align because it tracks true on straight line right ?

    Strut tower brace ?

    The suspension as far as i know is crazy different. struts/shocks included. I've read alot about the toe in/out being off and it possibly affecting it. Again it's what i've read so i cant say for sure. But it's not always doing it. I'm sure the tires will pull it around in the more worn roads as i drive where alot of semi's travel.

    Biggest difference between the RS and the ST is of course the AWD and the magnetic adjustable suspension.
