Probably been covered 103489503 times but I'm still new here...

Why?! I did purposely drive behind one from the M4 to the M40 via the A404 and then on the M40 from J4 to J9 just to remind him of what a real one looked like... Orange 5 door RS? Funniest thing I've seen all year :rofl: :rofl:

By the time you've bought an ST then all the RS bits and had the bumpers and bonnet painted... I thought for a second I'd missed the 5 door editions :laughing:

In Stoke there a lot of rs's knocking about and even more st's with misplaced bonnet vents! Everytime I was out in my RS id always come across a chav driving a ST who would literally be on my tailgate thinking I want to race. These imbeciles of the road are quickly making the focus the chav car on the road.

Don't see what the problem is. A lot of time and effort goes into some of these ST's and I would never belittle someone's pride and joy because of the badge on their car.

At the end of the day we are all supposed to be enthusiasts that share a passion. Not "mines better than yours."

I had a tiny look at focusstoc today...there's a thread comparing the ST against the RS - and the general conclusion appears to be that the ST is a far superior car in every respect :yep:

Sharper performance unless you're up the top end. Seats are the same. At least £15,000 cheaper. There's no point in having an RS.

SO WHY DO THEY INSIST ON TRYING TO MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE AN RS :rofl:

And, having owned both, there's a degree of truth in that sentiment (however the seats are NOT the same, the ST seats are lovely armchairs). As an everyday, fast comfortable car the ST, especially an MP260 like mine was, is a nicer car to drive than the RS. But I prefer my RS and have absolutely no intentions of selling it.

I've had both and I agree that are very different...and certainly wouldn't want my RS looking like an ST :laughing:

Here's the bottom line for me - I sold my ST :wink:

(we should stop this debate...it's silly)
