2002 SVTF/Sonic Blue/Cold Weather Package/Black EAP wheels
Purchased from a used car lot with 91K miles and a brand new OEM clutch (with the receipt from Bloomington Ford)

After showing him the private party KBB value of the car I printed & brought with me to help in negotiating the window sticker of $7,999 they had it marked at. I pulled out $6,000 cash in $100 bills and told him "take it or leave it" because I have 3 more lined up to look at and I know these cars. He had to go consult with his Manager, came back & said let's get the paperwork done.

Just goes to show when buying a car or for that matter anything else "cash in hand talks" and gets you a much better deal.

That's awesome! Cash really does talk and BS walks.

What I Drive: 2003 Infra-Red SVT

Just got my first SVT yesterday!

2003 SVT EAP
Infra-Red/Red Interior
stock with every option except the cold weather package/recaro seats
59k miles

Some dings and scratches here and there (and front plate holder ) but no serious damage. Frame and engine compartment totally clean, nice interior.

List price was 8,988
Got it for just under 7,500

I know I probably overpaid a bit but I was worried I'd regret passing it up. It's a little harder than I expected to find unmolested SVTs with that kind of mileage.

2003 SVT
CD silver with blue interior
stock everything but sound system
no fancy traction options.
45k miles, bought 6 months ago

clean title, just a little ding in the hood, busted original suspension, the original owner cut the front suspension springs, the electrical system was a mess as the guy had after market sound system with amps and stuff... clutch was slipping like mad, was resurfaced with bronze pucks on the same oem disk, passenger mount was blown.

other than that it was ok.

paid 5k for it, so far Ive spent 2k on parts so I guess its an ok price?

I got a 03 comp orange svt. got it with 108k, new clutch around 90k. it will need timing belt kit, a new tire and a alignment, and new dog bone bushings. 1 interior light doesnt work, fog lights dont work, drivers heated seat doesnt work, a previous owner tried shortening the shifter and it comes off if you dont push down when shifting. got it for 4k and he paid tags place.

Bought in octoberish 2012

2003
SVT infrared
red/black interior
CWP
80k miles, clean title/carfax 2 owners local car
Paid $5900
Had CFM TBi, AEM CAI, magnaflow cat-back, ford racing (EAP, but caps ford racing) black wheels, euro grille, MSD coil/wires (which just died recently and replaced with oem)hawk pads and slotted rotors.

No real maintenance issues other than timing belt and clutch needing replaced here soon. Already bought south bend stg 1+ alum flywheel to do that. Also installed koni's and camber/caster FSwerks plates.

I'm very happy with the car, I had a 00 zx3 infrared as my first car in HS and lusted so badly for an SVT, even test drove a new one at the local dealership. Real nice to finally own one, for cheap-ish without a nasty car payment haha.
