How much are they asking for the ZX3 model that you wanted, and how much are they asking for the ST model that you wanted?

Well if your really not to big into 4 doors, and want more power than the 2005 zx3, get a new 2004 zx3 witht the 23E Duratec ( PZEV), though you do get the old style front end and dash

well i get the ''A'' plan from ford cause my dad workd in deerborn detroit so i can afford both. thare both gonna be like 2 something a month and the price wont go past 20K for ether on so all i need to to choose wich model i want. is the ST much fast the the ZX3 it might have 20 more Hores power but its a heavyer car.

2005 ZX3 = Sportier than ST but less powerfull
2005 ZX4 ST = 4 door sedan with more powerfull motor

I would at least test drive both to see which one you like.

Sorry to hear that they are out of 2004 Foci in your area because then you could have got a Zx3 with the 2.3L engine.

that pic looks photoshoped but still cool. like i have the money for somthing like that. i have test drove the new ZX3 with a MTX and i loved it. i just think the ST looks like a granny car wich would make a good sleeper. its still a toss up i have till the end of the week to make my choice.
