A Focus RS is not a Focus RS500. That's another car we don't get in Australia. As noted we don't get the RS3 either, and an S3 could only be AU$85K if you ticked every option on offer. RRP for a 3dr manual S3 is $68K plus on roads.

The RS500 actually has slightly more power than both the 1M and RS3. It was announced a bit over 12 months ago ->

Not sure if this is what you were saying, but the Haldex system in the Golf R, TT RS and RS3 is the same.
