So is anyone from here going to go for the Limited Edition? I had an old customer of mine who bought an XR6 Sprint off me put a deposit down on one a couple of days ago.

If it was a  forged Mountune spec 400 with a limited run of 500 and flared guards, maybe.

But no. Still a world car golf r equivalent in my eyes. I guess ford wanted to make money which is no mistake on their behalf.

I wonder how much of a collectors item it will be compared to all the older RS's.

Someone sent me some pictures of a RS mk3 with melted pistons the other day. Holes in the block everywhere, chunks of metal breaking of compressor wheels.

Best failure I have even seen. I wasn't allowed to know who's car it was though Sad

The poor 4 banger truly does need forging before the old volvo donk.

As an ex-MK2 owner I would have to say that the MK2 is very special and looks so much better (more aggressive) than the MK3....I wish I could have afforded to keep mine...but things must move on. There is absolutely no doubt that the MK3 is a better drivers car...hands down...and more fun to drive than the MK2. Sure there have been some engine failures, but I also know of failures with MK2's...it's the old story...you play, you pay. As with my old MK2, I'm happy to keep the MK3 pretty standard and enjoy it for what it is...a great, fun road car that puts a smile on my face every time I drive it.

Whilst I own one and do not like to hear about engine failures the reported failures are in double digits, cars manufactured are well in 5 digits. It is likely to be way less of a problem than many models face.
