Weitec has unveiled a new tuning package for the Ford Focus RS. The package is called the RSW and includes lowered springs, sports shock-absorbers, and complete coilover suspension systems.

The car’s ride has been lowered by 30 mm thanks to the addition of new SPORT F Springs. If you want to lower the ride somewhere between 10 to 40 millimeters you can opt for the WEITEC HICON GT coilover suspension.

The package also includes the WEITEC HICON TX "plus" coilover suspension. This system allows the setup to be adjusted at any time to the driver’s preferences and the demands of the track. The tuner is also offering a complete suspension solution with pre-set shock absorbers. All elements and dust covers are always included in delivery from WEITEC.

The tuner is not offering any improvements for the engine, but the package is enough to considerably improve the car’s aerodynamics.

It’s a shame Weitec did not offer any exterior modifications that could spice up the popular Ford Focus RS as they did with the Volkswagen Golf back in May. The Golf received the same suspension system, but also got the chance to ride around with Lambo doors and an extensive body kit. It seems they stopped a little short with the Focus

WEITEC invests the Ford Focus with a fondness for bends. Straight away the sports suspension improves both the outward appearance, as well as the driving dynamics. With coilovers from the KW subsidiary WEITEC, the Focus gets a built-in guarantee of motoring enjoyment – and what’s more at an affordable price.

Thanks to the SPORT F Springs, the Ford Focus sits 30 millimetres closer to the tarmac. This improves not only the look, but moreover minimises pitching and rolling which takes the Focus in livelier fashion through bends. The sports suspension springs are obtainable for only 174 Euro including VAT.

For individual lowering, the WEITEC HICON GT coilover suspension is available. It permits the driver to lower his Focus within the TÜV-approved adjustable range between 10 and 40 millimetres. The galvanised steel housing and the additional sealing protect the suspension from corrosion. WEITEC supplies the HICON GT as a complete suspension solution with pre-set shock absorbers for only 849 Euro.

Whoever wants to alter the damping characteristics himself, in addition to individual lowering, makes the WEITEC HICON TX "plus" coilover suspension his first choice. Thanks to adjustable rebound damping, this permits the hardness of the suspension to be adapted. Even once it has been installed, it allows the setup to be adjusted at any time to the driver’s preferences and the demands of the track. The HICON TX "plus" is available from WEITEC for only 1099 Euro.

It goes without saying that all end stop elements and dust covers are always included in delivery from WEITEC. Furthermore the corresponding TÜV component certificate is always included.

WEITEC is the high-quality alternative to cheap, no-name suspensions. The subsidiary of KW, the globally successful suspension manufacturer, provides the best cost-performance ratio for uncompromising, first-class technology, made by KW.

Why is everyone saying this is "amazingly good looking" , it’s very plain. I prefer the 2002 europe RS and 2005 MK II 3 doors much better.

Ford is known to be a bulky looking type of car, now they’ve combined it to a sporty look and it really looks great. Not the way I expected it to be but still great.
