Shopping for a SVT Focus

Hey guys, first post here. Ive been shopping for a focus SVT for a couple months now but didnt really get serious about it untill recently. Something I noticed Is that KBB and NADA seem to be pretty off from what I can tell. Heres a scenario

02 Focus SVT ZX3
Blue w/blue interior
75k miles
clean/straight inside and out
EAP wheels

What should I expect to pay?

Welcome to the Forum

Moved to the SVT section. The Performance section is for well performance upgrades lol



Finding a SVT with that low of mileage for that model year will be tough. They did not come with the EAP wheels for that year either till 03 & 04. Most run from 2500 up to 7-8k for a very clean low mileage well kept one. Personally I wouldn't pay more than 5-6 and for that price it better be immaculate.

Crazy Ford dealer was asking $9000
Talked them down to $5500 by walking away, they called me back the next day.
If all checks out, first things first t-belt.

Damn, that's a awesome deal.

Do you have any plans for it or you just going to leave it stock?
