I left, but I'm back.

Hello all,
I had a 01 s2, and one year ago I got rid of it for an 03 Mustang GT for my 25th birthday. (insurance endeded up being the same after my birthday.) Let me just say that the focus community is far more informed, friendly and organized than the mustang community. It's a little more tightly knit. Focus Fanatics is a very comprehensive site and very helpful. I miss it. Anyway, my girlfriend needed a new car. Well guess what she got. Yep, 04 screaming yellow SVT. JEEEZZZUUUSSS I love this car. I always envied SVT owners because that was what I wanted to turn my zx3 in to. It would have cost a pretty penny. (I'm sure all you non SVT owners know.) It's no GT, but MAN, it is luxurious compact with amazing styling and performance that is enough to look forward to driving. Since she got it a week ago, I've gotten back into the focus sites. I'm disappointed to find that the led tail lights are discontinued, but I did get some from Sascha. Here is the main topic of my post...
We were looking at any car that is sporty, manual, and moderately priced. Obviously, there's only a few options, si, se-r, rsx, srt-4 and so on...
Well we got real lucky and neither of us regret a thing. But as I get reaquainted with focus, I started searching and I am annoyed by the polarization of si owners and svt owners. C'mon, this isn't a war! I bought a 99 si before I got the focus. I wrecked it and insurance went up, so I got the s2. But that civic was an amazingly fun car! Anyone driven one? As I go to civic forums, and investigate opinions on svt they are nothing but haters. On the other side of the coin there are plenty of focus owners that hate on civic si. I WILL SAY I hate fart cans. Beyond that, They are tight little cars. My point is, I wonder why people can't respect other cars. I do, and I LOVE the SVT.

I'm not really a hater, I just don't respect people that think a 4" muffler and a shopping cart wing look good OR make your car fast. I have nothing against Civics specifically, it just so happens that such behavior is often displayed by Honda drivers.

SI's though I have some respect for. They're quick. And the K20 is nasty.

welcome back!! and great purchase!! and I agree, I have love for all cars. I just think some Honda owners subject themselves to haters because of some of the stuff they do to their cars. They can be tuned up just as good if not better than any focus. And they also have very good styling options that make them mean but not overdone. It's just up to the owener/driver to build their ride in taste. However, as we know, tastes are different. What one of us loves, another hates.

I happen to love VW's and you screaming yellow euro :)

i'm with you, my brother has an accord and tells me how he beat this and that and that he can beat me too. He then goes on to say "Man, I got Vtec" they can't beat me. LOL
