Bye Bye SVT :( Hello ZX5 :)

Well, with all the problems I was having with the SVT I talked to my dealer and got a 04 ZX5 even trade. The SVT has been in the shop for at least 6 weeks total since I got it in Dec. They could never find out what was wrong with the front end among other things. Then when they voided the warrenty because it had nitrous in it prior to me owning it, that was the last straw. Eventhough they got it back to warrenty standard, I still wanted to get rid of it. It was never right from the day I bought it. Plus things had changed in my life(baby on the way), and I was looking at the ZX5 before I saw the SVT. So, now the SVT is gone and I'm bummed out in a way, but it was starting to give me alot of trouble. On the bright side, I can mod from scratch now!! I will post some pics tomorrow. The color is light tundra, looks like crap on the fords site in person its great and unique.

Now, ya'll can bash me for getting rid of the SVT, hehe!

Mmm...light tundra. I love that color. Same color as viney's wagon, right?

Congrats on your purchase and congrats on being a daddy (soon) :)

If you got the 2.3 pzev, then this really isn't much of a loss except some nice leather seats and a 6spd trannie... The 2.3 can take an svt with just an intake and exhaust....

Congrats on the new car. You shouldn't be bashed for switchingout a bad seed for a new one... people should understand that choice! Also, big congrats on the upcoming baby! I think light tundra is a nice color, I almost got my zx3 that color.
