    Or, is it just that you're creating posts so you can get people to look at your profile and advertise your business?

    You can't go wrong with an RS, They hold their value and depending on how long you keep it for you'll make a profit, or at worst get your money back.

    What Focus RS are you thinking of? The MK1 is the best of the bunch, But the Mk3 is a great car. What it lacks in looks, Certain redeems itself in power and driveability.

    100k for a first car though, Personally i'd be looking to buy a cheap runaround as a first car as most first cars dont tend to live a good life in that persons ownership. Or look at getting a nice car as a second, sunday driver providing space is no issue.

    Something to do with emissions across the range.

    Used ones from around £30,000 - £40,000

    Think it comes with rear brakes which would explain the price.

    OP already has class though. Year 5 probably...
    But could definitely do with some remedial English lessons too.
    No free lunch, and no free laptop
