Just wonderin, were the focuses in Austrailia runnin with the machanical diffs as it would seem pretty pointless runnin active diffs when the cars are banned from usin them next year?

Personally I think the new focus is the most pig ugly thing ive seen since the 2001 bug eyed subaru came out!

real shame since the last focus was mean looking- but m-sport hadnt really much to work from saying as the road car is awful looking to start with

If you parked the new focus and the old one side by side and asked someone who knew nothing about cars to say which was the newer model I dont think too many would say the saggy middle aged looking blob thats out now!:barf:

I think it looks fantastic and is a very promising package for next year. I can't wait to see it in the flesh on the stages in Monte now :)

I don't like the wheels on the new focus (soundin like a freak i know) in gravel spec. They're the same as what the Impreza now runs on aswell. They're rotten funny multispoke wheels, they must have some benefit (low weight?) but still, they don't help the looks of a car which isn't drop dead gorgeous!!

The current crop of WRC cars are starting to look like the group B monsters of the 80s.

At least when group A came along the cars bore some resemblance to the street version-just like to good old days of the RS 1800 Fiat 131 & Manta.

Renault 5, M3, Cossie, Lancia, Audi, etc.

The new Focus is UGLY-pure and simple.
