2003 MK1 Ford Focus RS



A very nice low mileage and one previous owner MK1 Ford Focus RS!

We have had the pleasure of selling three extremely low mileage MK1 Focus RS’s in the past, and although we would not consider this to be ‘extremely’ low mileage, it is still very low and in very nice condition.

Only 21,430miles from new!
Only one previous owner from new!
Just had full major service at Ford Dealer.
All original paperwork & booklets are present within the history file.
Original RS mats still present and in good condition – kept in the boot.
Full Service History
Very nice interior
Lovely condition throughout
Spare Key present.


Originally Purchased from Dovercourt Ford Dealership in Essex, and supplied on 7th March 2003.
The original Handover Checklist is present, along with receipts for each service carried out, the latest being at a cost of £1,017.61 on 15/09/2016, which included all belts, tensioners, fluids and filters of course
Of course the original booklets are present, in the correct RS wallet.

Lots of MOT’s are with the vehicle, along with various Sorn declarations.
The unused spare key is also present, still with original tag in place.


Body & Paintwork

As you would expect, the Imperial Blue paintwork is original, and still looks fantastic, having benefited from a professional machine polish recently..

The wheels have been professionally refreshed, and look great!
Generally the bodywork is in great condition, and presents very nicely, the only point worth making is that the bonnet has a few touch up’s, however these tend to be in line with the mileage.

All trims are in very good condition, as are all badges, and lights.
All rubbers are as new, with no perishing of the door rubbers, aerial base etc…

A very nice, well presented, Fast Ford RS.

Interior & Trim

This is an area that a lot of MK1 Focus RS’s suffer.

This example presents very well inside!
If you are looking at this advert, chances are you already know that MK1 Focus RS interiors tend to wear quite quickly, and many examples are really starting to show age.
The seats are very good, with little sign of wear, and the rear seats look very good also – no rips, tears or burns.

All carpets are without any marks, and the original RS floor mats are kept in the boot, they show very little signs of wear!

Dashboard is unmarked, and original stereo is still in place, along with original gearknob and steering wheel, all of which are in good condition.
Everything works as it should do, and the overall appearance is still fantastic.


This engine runs exactly as you would expect for such a low mileage example.
Whisper quiet from cold, with no tapping from cold which is common on these engines.

The car has clearly been cherished and loved, not only when it comes to appearance, but also when it comes to keeping the car healthy.

The car has been regularly serviced (stamps within the service book & receipts to prove), and this shows.

No smoking, either on start up, idle, when on boost, or on overrun.
The car pulls strongly through the entire rev range, with no hesitation at all.

The car has had a K&N induction kit fitted, along with a Mongoose exhaust – receipts are present for these, they were fitted new at great expense.

Driving this car is an absolute pleasure, the gearbox is nice and tight, the clutch is fantastic and performance is very good indeed.

Running Gear

All running gear is in good order throughout.

Brakes are superb standard items, and have no judder at all.
All suspension is without fault, the wheels are in unmarked condition, with premium tyres fitted.
