what should i buy?????

ok so some of you might know that i am looking for another focus. my baby (#2872) was totaled in FEB and i am thinking i want another focus. now i have a little problem..... do i buy a 04 comp orange focus or a 04 saleen n2o. both are ready for sale in cali... and i can get either one i want. price is not a huge issue but the N2o is about 3k more. i guess what i am looking for is what would you buy?

imo 04 comp orange cuz its more subtle, has HIDs and recaro seats. but the saleen is more rare and has a wide bodykit. so maybe which ever has lower mileage.

This is a good question, they both have their pros and cons, I guess it really just depends on what ur looking for. The SVT is fully loaded, cleaner looking exterior, but the saleen has the 2.3Duratec w/ a much more aggressive exterior. However the svt has better braking (unless ur getting the brembo edition saleen) but when it comes to handling, they're both pretty equal.

If you were looking at the EAP, the headlights/recaro/wheels are a big plus!
But with saleen, all u need is a bottle and u got a 14 sec. car with much more to improve. Not to mention the saleen has those sweet momo seats.

This is tough decision...

but if it was the eap model, id prolly get that since u said the saleen is 3k more, with the money i'd save from the saleen, i'd put it as a down for a xios turbo kit.

oh, well then widebody or not, they still look super nice. so does that still mean you can put wider rims on the saleen?
