Will fly to to TX, then drive back to VA, safely I hope. The distance is no problem--how many 2004 Red SVT ZX5's with European Appearance Package (EAP) do we see everyday? Been looking for a while--only 29 made.

Plus, the serialized Steeda package is a bonus, and it will be fun to play with and compare.

The 2004 SVT 4-door with the EAP is one of my beloved autos of all time. I used to have Porsche 911 Turbos, custom ordered with the $2300 sport seats, and I'll take the SVT EAP leather Recaros any day of the week. Just fits me. And the absence of high, long shifter/center tunnels in the '02-04 SVT's makes for great driving comfort. In fact, I feel really "squeezed in" in the 2013 Focus, versus the '02-04 models. Just my personal preference.

I paid the asking price at the dealership--$6900. Dealer would not budge on price--not a nickel. I wasn't crazy about the 114k mileage, but cosmetically the car seems a 8.5/10. No problems other than a needed re-paint of rear mirrors. And Carfax report is super clean--no issues, and only two owners.

Thanks for the interest.
