RS Shifts your money

AdvantagesShifty, a fast paced motor

DisadvantagesExpensive to drive in

"...huge advantage that my the Ford has! But...... Steering? The Car handles fairly well, I’ve been in worse, but what lets the handling down is the amount of weight the car has on a corner. I mean that when turning a corner, the car doesn’t lean that much, but it’s dead heavy on the wheel. The tyres take a burn from the heavy steering, turning corners at 40-50mph can even be enough to attack your nose with the smell of burning ..." Read review

RS Heaven

AdvantagesLooks, Performance

DisadvantagesLack of Ford Dealership Support

"...so. one downside being lack of Ford Dealership help... dont count on it.. they just dont want to know about performance cars anymore.. seems they would rather play with diesels than real cars. Possibly another downside is the fact that the power you have just never feels enough with these cars... you get used to it and despite feeling incredibly fast at 180 bhp when i bought it, my RS is now giving "performance" cars (never lost to a scoobie ..."

My Escort RS Turbo

AdvantagesRare, Tuneable, Desirable and Fast

DisadvantagesAddictive

"I`ve owned a black 1988 series 2 for 9 years now and it just keeps getting better. Every year they bring out faceless, soulless plastic cars and the RST just looks better. It`s so tuneable and 200 bhp is easily achievable on the series 2 as they were de-tuned from the factory for road use. All you need is a new fuel management chip (Ahmed Bayjoo chips are by far the best), a -31 actuator to increase the boost (series 2`s can easily handle 1 bar( or ..." Read review

I love my Turbo

Advantagesmodifyable, good looking, fast

Disadvantagesdear to run

"Last year I bought a H reg Escort RS Turbo and "I LOVE IT". Its fast its reliable and it looks amazing. I paid £3000.00 and it was the best money I have every spent. I have added a full system scorpion exhaust, a pipercross induction kit, a gorgeous souding dump valve and dropped it on its arse. It looks the business and sounds it too. I would recommend any young person to buy one of these cars. I admit because it gas been lowered it isn't the ..." Read review

RS TURBO SHED!!!

AdvantagesQuick Quick and Quicker

DisadvantagesNoisy noisy and Noisier still!!!

"...always wanted to own a Ford Escort RS Turbo. When I was 25 I finally realised my dream and bought a clapped out G reg Black RS Turbo. What a shed and to think I sold my K Reg Fiesta RS 1800I to get it!!!It was quick but noisy, unreliable kept breaking down, etc. I bought a K & N air filter for it and it was exactly the same but noisier!!! No more performance!!!I sold it to some mug in the end for 3 grand which cheered me up no end. I now have a Nissan ..." Read review

Best car ive had

AdvantagesCan be modified to the max

DisadvantagesHigh fuel consumption

"Ever since I learnt to drive I always wanted a high performance car. I started with a 1600I Orion, which i thought was nice, then upgraded to a XR3I. A little while into having the 3I someone offered me the Turbo which at the time was complety standard. It really was allot faster than I was used to and the engine purred when started. After a while I started to reallise all the modifications that can be done. Even when standard the car goes well ..." Read review

How to style your Escort for peanuts

AdvantagesCheap and cheerful

DisadvantagesNone

"Styling a Ford Escort is dead easy, and for young drivers wanting a good looking but cheap to afford car, the Escort is the obvious choice. With models starting at 1.1 litres, it is easy to get insured for little. Ford's CVH engine was a masterful piece of engineering, and as such is easy to maintain, and provides good efficient service. As for cosmetic styling, there are lots of options. Many companies provide cheap bodykit parts, such as RS ..." Read review

Ford Escort RS Turbo Series 2

Advantagesexcellent handling, high speed, good looks, great spec

Disadvantagesattractive to "tea leaves", can be expensive to maintain

"I used to own a Radiant red escort Rs Turbo Series 2, 1989 model, this is one of the most fun cars I have ever driven. It has a lot of goodies as standard ie:- recaro seats, rear spoiler and body skirt kit, 15" alloys, an adjustable windscreen wiper speed (brilliant when driving at speed in the rain), sports steering wheel etc. Handles like a dream, as i put Koni suspension on this gave a firm ride but still in the comfort zone, would benefit from ..."
