Any of you Zetec guys get SVT envy??

So today I swing by the Ford dealership parts entrance to get something and after I park my faithful 01 ZX3, I notice what must be a 2001-03 SVT. 3-door just like mine and black just like mine. I looked at it... inside and out and then looked back at my dirty ZX3 and instantly wished I had that one. Proper rims, brakes, body kit, nice interior and even that strip that runs vertically along the door frame was glassy black, not matte black.

But then I remember that I'm well on my way of having my ZX3 paid off and being able to save money. I also then figured that for the difference in cost between the two, on my own, I can get the bigger SVT brakes, suspension, paint my own handles, trim, get rims...etc. Maybe even get a small turbo/supercharger in there.... probably wishful thinking ;)

yeh, seeing the amont of power they can hold....u can just easily drop a F/i system of ur choice w/o modding anything else to the engine. it makes me sad though, but i can make my z-tec be the same way but for a lot more :(

also they come with the "cool" look standard
