Well after not a lot of thought I realized,why shouldn’t I enjoy driving in the winter? So I picked this up from my local Ford dealer this week.

This what happens when you sell 2, buy only one, have money left over, or free garage space?

I thought those were all sold and gone. Let me know how you like it Ron. Every ford family needs one.

Perhaps better term for winter: HOT!! Looks like it will be a real blast. Have fun.

Car sales are spiking. You have too much time on your hands.

Can you fit a plow on it and come down and do my driveway?

Great choice! I did get same a couple months ago. I go through big car withdrawal in the winter not having something cool to drive. Had it out in our first big snowfall this year. OMG with the snow tires I don’t know if I ever had so much fun driving to work in ANY car!!! Do a tune to waken it up a bit more. Makes a difference. :). Congrats!

Just wait for the Audi RS6 Avant to come out next summer. That thing is going to be freaking awesome.

This will be my 3rd winter with mine. Get the wheel and snow tire option! Great in snow as long as not to deep!
Find a clear parking lot ( no poles) put it in drift mode and have fun!
Get ready for a “ rough ride”!

The DSC sport module transforms the ride quality in all modes. The best upgrade you can do!
it’s a fully optioned car with 2 sets of wheels
Expecting delivery next week

Depends which year your RS is. 2016 and 2017, suspension really hard, 2018 softer and has front Diff.
I ended up going to litchfield adjustable height suspension, also more compliant and still has ability to change the settings electronically. If your is 2018 probably not necessary.
