Traded in my '04 SRT-4 for an ...

... '06 Focus ST.

LOL

Yeah, the SRT-4 was fast. Really fast!

But ...

The things I could no longer tolerate on my SRT-4 were:

1) Car came with "3 Season" tires: This caused me to have to buy a set of winter tires/wheels. Doing the seasonal change over thing got old quick.

2) The "Viper" seats: The only SRT-4's available near my house when I got it in June '04 were the one's with the Viper seats. My 6'0 ft. tall/230 lb. frame was never in complete harmony with those seats. LOL

3) Having every Tom, Dick, and Harry want to race me: Sure, it's fun for a while. But if I'm making a quick trip to the store for something, and have somebody "tailing" me for a race .... well, it gets irritating.

4) Having to endure all of the above, while paying $470 month: Now I'm only paying about $400 month, without the previously mentioned hassles.

Not knocking the SRT-4 in general, just not the car for me.

Now I've got a flaming Red '06 ST (matches our rigs in the fire station - LOL) with exactly the one single option that I wanted.

The Street Appearance Package.

I am very, VERY happy!


PEACE ALL

^^^ worthless as it is, how often do you here about SRT-4 owners converting to the Focus? All we here about now adays is how fast the Cobalt and Neon are and how slow the SVT is. Plus, there have been more than a few people dumping their focus for another faster car. I just think this is kind of rare and nice to here.
