I've got PS4's on my new fiesta 140ps
Great tyres so far.

I'd find it surprising if Michelin had suddenly gone backwards in wear rate. Pilot sports have (generally) lasted very well.I like the ps4, but they don't wear well. Changed the fronts from f1's in Nov, to ps4. They've already got less tread than the f1's which are 20k older on the rear (and have done an airfield day).
They're good, but not enough to justify changing twice a year.

I've read the same about the PS4. Thing is, the PSS have been a good tyre for me and the wear rates are pretty impressive so I don't have a real reason to change what ain't broken...They're good...basically I have 3mm on the front axle and 5mm on the back. A swap around, a couple of thousand more road miles, and a trackday and they'll be done. Much as I want to stick to OEM all the way with Michelin Pilot SuperSports I keep hearing good things about the PilotSport 4 tyres so I may give them a bash after the trackday.
Comparing new f1's (which were on prev), to new ps4, I've got roughly half the mileage out of them. And the f1's were subjected to a car control day, on a very abrasive airfield.I'd find it surprising if Michelin had suddenly gone backwards in wear rate.

Were your rears on the front in the past or are you comparing fronts to rears on what I presume is your VRS (a FWD car)..
Walking down the stairs, the camera following from the front, hands clasped.Mark I don't have a focus nor do I care about them, but I watched the video because I thought you had a presenters voice and seemed quite professional haha. You should be on a property program!
Still looks nicer to me..I think the Red Edition looks bloody brilliant personally. The standard colour palette was all monochrome apart from Nitrous. Red should have been a standard colour option. You could never expect too many interior changes. They've added the choice options, what else were they going to do? The more stuff they add, the more expensive the car becomes.
Incidentally, the production MK2 Focus RS500 didn't have red seats. They were black leather with grey alcantara/suede centres, same as a regular RS with the Lux interior, only with red stitching instead of blue.
My friend had a Pug 306 Mardi Gras when he was 18. That was the shittest 306 in the world, with no PAS or even central locking. They colour-coded the bumpers and put some stickers on it and that was enough for it to be a special edition. By comparison, a unique colour, forged wheels, limited-slip diff and Recaro CS seats doesn't seem bad to me.
I can't really see a difference to be honest. One is a Focus with some extra gauges and fancy Recaro seats, while the other is, err, a Focus with some extra gauges and some fancy Recaro seats. The MK3 Focus doesn't have the most attractive dash in it's class (though neither did the MK2), but Ford Performance couldn't really do much about that. I drive a MK3 Focus quite a lot for work and it's a nice enough place to be to be honest.Still looks nicer to me..
Both aren't particularly appealing on the inside, but one is definitely less busy and looks more 'focused', cleaner. The dash in the Mk3 looks like a transformer if it were disguised as a Nokia phone. Agree with what you've said in that honestly if I lived with either it wouldn't bother me either way when all is said and done.I can't really see a difference to be honest.

lol - hands still clasped, looks around and does the Kermit nod.Walking into an empty room and giving that look about.
Yeah, not dishing out snobbery. My current daily is a mk2 focus and my weekend car is an Evo which has the cabin quality of a viking ship.When CS suggest, I have to deliver...now, to find some stairs I can safely film on...hmmmmm.
As for the interior, it is OK for what it is. It's functional and comfortable...but not something you want to boast about. Like the Fiesta ST though everything feels absolutely bang on. That's plenty good enough for me.
