    5th Gear Shootout VXR v Focus XR5T

    Anyone see the VXR v Focus shootout on 5th gear on the 24th? Love to win it but of course I'm not from the UK so not happening. I rekon it was the VXR by a nose myself. But I'd be inclined to put aftermarket suspension on it soon enough anyway which would make the choice so easy.

    I know I'll get lynched for saying this, but I think if I had that sort of money to spend, I'd be buying the Focus.

    It just seems more...erm...complete to me. VXR if you're going to be arsing about a track every other weekend. The Focus' engine seems better for everyday driving.

    I also prefer the Focus ST over the VXR.
