Not mad about this at all, I remember window shopping these along with the Mazdaspeed 3s back in the early 2000s.

Yea, big nostalgia factor for me as well with these (and the MS3). Always thought of them as a "Focus Si" and it's pretty much what they are in my opinion.

Nice


I would love to find one of these or a Contour SVT to use as a beater for tooling around town.

SVT Contours with the right exhaust sound so good too.

No comment on mileage, so assuming well over 100K.

I love how Todd is in such a hurry to say something negative he doesn't even bother to try and read a 1 page thread. Typical. Lulz.

You ever wonder why you get these cars so cheap? Yeah...it's the mileage. It looks nice though from the pictures that you posted.

Honestly, I like the Fiero you have 10x better...but that's just me.

I like the 3dr better, but I was a fan of the 1st gen Focus WRC. Focus RS of this body looks good, but FWD.

Yea there are plenty low mile nice ones out and about. Not sure I'd ever spend almost $10k on one tbh but even that is short money in the grand scheme of things.

Whats the options on this car? How rare is it? I had a 3dr 2003 SVT. The yellow with all options like the recaros and HID lights. I had a certificate that indicated only 1,670 were produced in either yellow or orange fully spec'd out for 2003. Your's doesn't appear to be very highly spec'd.

Mine has the HIDs, power moonroof option, the Audiophile Upgrade (rear sub and 6-disc in dash changer), cold weather package (heated seats, trac control, block heater, heated mirrors). Only thing it doesn't have is EAP.

Nice car, but about $4500 too expensive.
