Ford Focus RS Vs Modded hothatchs

Here the link ; http://www.goapr.com.au/media/mm-june2011.pdf

Here the conclusion ;

Price-wise, they top-and-tail the field, with the Golf demanding
the biggest ask, at $67,780 (including purchase of the car and tuning
as you see it here). You can obviously leave some parts out, but at
present, this is probably the fastest front-driver money can buy.
Nipping at its heels is the Polo, which at $42,765, offers a far better
value equation, even when you throw an LSD and some DSG tuning
on top. There’s no doubt it will end up faster, too, with the plans
Harding has for the pint-sized hatch.
This leaves the Evolve Technik Focus ($58,150) and the MRT
Mazda 3 MPS ($48,805) somewhere in between. Both tuning packs
offer significant real-world improvement on road and track; it just
depends where your priorities lie.
But our exercise provides two valuable lessons: no matter what
hot-hatch you buy or how short you feel it falls of your expectations,
a reputable tuner can turn your car into the firecracker you’ve always
dreamed of; no matter if you’re heart’s set on a racetrack warrior or a
muscled-up street sleeper. And the level of risk you assume in all of
this is almost negligible, as all the tuners we’ve dealt with offer their
own brand of warranty or guarantee. It’s not like the bad old days.
And the second lesson?

We all should have bought a Focus RS.

The Ford focus ST that comming will not be as great as the RS. But like other hatchback, it will be possible to mod it close a RS for sure.

What I like about the document is that it proves that the GTI has full potential if u are willing to spead the money. Without been too extreme like APR did to his version with a high budget of 67,780. Its possible to get something serious for around the same price as a Focus RS, like I tried myself with my Gti and my mods list.

The best tittle for the GTI ; The GTI is more like a racecar than a road car. It’s a serious bit of gear.
