:welcome: aboard Paul.

We have some ex CTR owners on here but seeing as this is focusrsoc I think any advice you get may be skewed somewhat :nice:

My skewed advice - get the Focus :yep:

I owned the last of the EP3s - a Cosmic Grey Premier edition with great Recaro seats.

The nicest sounding 2.0 engine I have heard to date, with a rock hard set up, let down only by its poor steering feel.

I would rate the Type R as very good overall for its age. The mk2 RS is sublime in comparison.

I love Type R's but have been deeply let down by the latest, as Honda promised everything with their concept car and gave us a car with a stuck on airfix kit.

Coming from someone who very much likes the Type R brand, I would go for the mk3 RS - whilst it looks too subtle, I still think it will be the more rounded car overall.

I have tracked the new Type R and it was awesome,. The looks are not to everybody's taste and the dash is cluttered and the soundtrack poor, but it goes well and grips like a limpet.

The mk3 is part of a superior brand and heritage IMHO and will probably have greater residuals as well. Sensible thing is to just wait and test both...
