Well guys I totaled my 04 SVT a couple weeks ago comng home from work. Dodged a dog that jumped out in the road and did a 400ft sideways slide into the woods. LoL, the last 15 miles of my bi-monthly 400 mile drive from work. Well the good news was I owed $3,000 and the insurance company gave me $9,000 for my 119,000 mile SVT. So I went and bought me a 2010 MazdaSpeed3 with a $6,000 down payment. So wasn't all bad. Still and always will love my Focus. Maybe in the future SVT will get their crap together and build another Focus. Maybe I'll come back then. Thanks everyone for your help over the years with questions and upgrades. Namely Tom. Get a tune together for a MazdaSpeed3 man and you'll be hearing from me. Take care all.

They actually gonna do it right this time? Put some kind of FI on it? With the new 5.0 and even 6cyl Mustangs, Ford shouldn't be worried about the lil' Focus Spanking em anymore with a little boost. I was hoping they would, I like the new look they got. Since 04 the Foci have seemed ugly as hell to me.

the festa is to be turboed with like 180whp and the focus is to be a 200+whp N/A beast.

LoL, yeah I have to get used to having a turbo now. was used to my NA Focus. When that Mazda went nuts at 3k RPM, it scared the hell out of me.

How did you get so much money for your 2004 SVT? I have a 2002 with 90,4xx miles on it. That is what you would get if you sold it private party. Should I hope someone hits me and totals the car? That way I could get the nice insurance pay out? I have full coverage.
Moved to the Owners Lounge.
Bummer to hear about the SVTF. [:(]
But...[thumb] on the Speed 3!

Idk Newk, guess Geico was really good to me. Not gonna complain though. I think he actually factored in aftermarket add-ons, like the clutch and such, cause he was asking about them. He said it was a bummer cause he could tell it was in great condition, looked like it was well taken care of. Which it was, I treated that car better than the wife and kids :)

aww, you got the UGLY MS3!!!
Glad to hear you're ok though and you got a LOT for your SVT too! Trade your MS3 for a 07-09, no one likes to drive around with a Kool-Aide smile on their car.....
that sucks man, but YESSS to a new svt focus, where did you hear that???
