Richard,

Yesterday I picked up my 03 SVT ZX3 in Vermillion Red, HID, Moon Roof, CWP! First focus for me. I ended my relationship with my '94 Escort LX. The SVT is just so much fun to drive, that is the whole reason I got it.

I was not even looking for a new car. A friend of mine works at the dealership. I stopped in to meet him for lunch. He told me that we would be taking the SVT. I drove it after lunch and then took it home with me! Instant carma between me and the 6 speed.

I started looking for some info on performance upgrades (not that any are NEEDED, just fun to add) and came across this board. I am sure I will learn a lot about my new little toy!

Jonas

Let me get my mind right (if that's possible). Are the "SVT ZX3 and SVT ZX5" you both are talking about actual SVTF's or are they the "Focus Flash" (which, IMO looks pretty neat) models of the 3 and 5 door?
