Idk if this goes for everyone but its fun for awhile 2 have an svt u do whatever u want 2 do 2 it. But then u can only make it so much faster/better before u can't do anything else. I'm not f/I but I'm bored with my svt I'd rather get something that's better already that I have a better base to start with then where the svt is. Its a great car n its fast n I'm not trying to have the fastest car but it was a good starter car before I get a better car. But that's just me idk bout everyone else

So why don't you trade your zx3 for a WRX? Why would you have to have an SVT to trade it for a WRX ? I agree with Scott, people are just moving on.

^ya it sucks to see all these svts getting sold, but poeple have to move on eventually, if i had svt id keep it and park it, resale value in a few years with a 04 model, cuz thats last svt made, would be worth some bucks!

Well the reason I sold mine was because of the $400 note, $200 insurance bill, and 17 mpgs....which equaled up to about $200-$300 a month depending on how much we drove it. Too expensive for what it was.
