Basically, an SVT fOCUS Dealer is one that's undergoing a "trial" period.
Once they get good marks and good customer reviews for a set period of time,
they can become a full SVT Certified Dealer.

You should be OK using either one.
I don't think that statment is entirely true. I believe that any Ford dealership is authorized to sell the SVT Focus, but only the Focus. In order for them to sell the Cobra's (as new), they have to be an authorized SVT dealership, which requires the training/certification. At least that is my understanding of it. I purchased my SVTF from a non SVT dealership, and this is what they told me.
