The 540RH and 2010 Stage 3 looked good . I think the 427 stripes bother me the most. They shouldn't have carried those over to their flagship S3. IMHO.
Agreed .. as much a fan as I am of ROUSH .... this effort is 'uninspired'. I've always thought their branding has been horribly mis-managed but the product and quality sold itself.
The GT500 vs RS3 debate is a healthy one that has a lot of valid points on both sides. A debate I visit daily ......
