ok I was reading all those reviews of Focus ST, so wondering now.....

Sell SVT and get that new ST, that way I'd have a new car, and it would save me some money compared to what I'm spending on SVT every month


Keep SVT, keep driving 10 year old car that cost's me every month much more than paying off new ST, and considering how much needs to be done still It will be this way for next 2 years, or maybe even more if I will turbo it.



so:
2012 ST = cheaper, newer, shiny and all, and some good HP from factory
vs.
2002 SVT = fricking budget and free time killer, but super fun to drive, and with turbo I'll get even more HP than stock ST.



We all know what i'm gonna do, but just thinking loud now here see what are your feelings about new ST based on reviews we already have available

Keep your SVT and pay it off. Getting another car note is not the solution to your problem. Your just increasing your debt and the amount of money you owe towards something that is constantly decreasing in value.
