are you still going to be keeping the 2000 focus? do you want to get a car that only has two doors and cause you may be tired with the car you have now?

finish modding the car you have now. The SVT-F doesnt have alot of aftermarket parts for it. So keep the car you have now and mod it more. Besides the SVT-F is just a hyped up focus from the factory.

If you like the hatchback then get the SVT, it comes modded from the factory so you should be happy for a while.

If you're going to mod something mod your current car. Why have a new car if you're going to void the warranty?

Get the SVT.........I've only had my ZX3 a few months and I've done quite a bit of stuff to it, BUT, I'm really wanting an SVT now. I didn't think I'd like the Focus as much as I do.

If you like more horsepower from the factory go with the SVT. Every since I test drove one I've been tempted to trade mine in....
