Saleen: What were they thinking?

For the price you can get an SVT and Tom's Turbo kit with 239hp @ the wheels and 200+ torque.

Why did Steve even bother with this rig?

I agree....... no clue....... probably to hit up the FORD market a bit more, they already did up the mustang and explorer, why not the focus now.

well saleen has an exclusive deal with ford products. but usually they are really nice upgrades when it comes to performance and power. they seemed to just skimp with the focus and rice it out like most dorks do to a civic

and am I the only one that thinks the rear bumper fits funny and looks cheap? and that spoiler is ugly as sin :(

i like the wheels, lowering kit, flares/sideskirts and front bumper a lot though, anyone know if that front bumper fits the SVT stock foglight locations or does it take a lot of modding?

The spoiler is ugly, no doubt, that thing should be on a 747 in the sky.

The kit isn't that bad, a guy in the city here has the full kit but I haven't seen his car yet, not in person. The bumper, you would just have to re-route the fog lights to get them to place properly in the Saleen bumper. Shouldn't be a big deal. You looking at that kit?

yeah i like the front bumper a lot, and im looking at the OZ superturismo wrc 18"s so the fender flares would add a nice touch with that.

i just like how its half RS, half SVT looking

Yeah not sure..... one bumper that I am digging is the cervini's front end. Like the style but I am very very partial to lip kits.

Anyway, back saleen bumper is a bit 'off'.... not sure how to explain it any better....

The are getting out of date with design, this thing is getting dangerously close to a 80s Trans am.

Too many superfluos vents, the hood scoop makes no sense, the rear bumper is boxy and looks like it was done in grade 11 shop class, the swooshy graphic on the side looks like someone keyed the car, the rear wing is useless.

I slightly prefer the Roush Focus.
