Pitfalls of 100K+miles on used SVT Focus?

Seeking wisdom from those with experience. I have two '04 SVT's, and I am looking for a 3rd. I love these cars, and I come from Porsche/Audi/BMW history. However, mileage on the used SVT cars are regularly over 100k miles, and often over 120k.

Question: what are most common repair problems on the higher mileage models? I have replaced a clutch at 52K and a motor mount at 85k. Otherwise, my SVT's are rock solid.

I am concerned about head unit problems, clutch, power windows, transmission. Any tips or advice would be appreciated. Conversely, I would love to hear from owners with 150K miles and still running strong.

Thanks. PR
