Talking Diamond in the rough

So here @ Darkstar Motorsports we have been looking for a test Focus for a few weeks, and I ran across this little gem last night.






2003 Black SVT 3 door



The good...

33,000 Miles
Sun Roof
Chrome 17" (off brand) wheels with Excellent tires
Clean intertior
Registration good till Nov.
Engine runs STRONG

The bad...

OEM header has a hole from car bottoming out
Broken primary 02 sensor due to the header bottoming out
Both HID bulbs are blow out
one of the leveling screws in driver's side head light is broken
6-Disc changer is not working
Air Bag light is on

Price...

$3,500



First mod was a cheap K&N, no more stock air box.

Good god, that was a hard 33K miles!! But with a little TLC, $3500 is a steal for that! Another $1k in parts and a few good days of detailing and it would probably be a badass car.

Those wheels are hideous, but that would be a sweet little SVT with some love.

I could see it.... some euro wheels, window tint, lowered suspension, and some paint clean up......... god that would be a beautiful car.....

I'd ask him to come down to 3k even. That would be fair for the current condition.

nice! even tho there are some problems with the cd player, header, and whatever else i forgot im sure that if your using this as a test foci it wont matter that much. at least from a performance stand point anyway! hopefully the hole in the header wont matter either b/c you know you wanna test a nice turbo setup on that sexy thing!

LOL, I agree i hate the wheels.


Our first line of products that will be tested is a set of affordable motor mounts for you guys. We were offering a huge line of mounts for the Mazda 3 and Protege guys, so we though we'll do the same for you guys
