New to SVT family

I just purchased my first 2002 FF SVT it has High mileage with 152,250 it runs real good no problems I just had new tires put on it and oil changed. The A/C needed recharged so I got that done also while I was there one of the techs then pointed out that it had a broken sway bar link so I also had that done but I figured I would run in to somethings like this being high mileage and all so I have no worries. Need info on what I should expect to see go bad soon? or regular things that go Bad? I am only the 3rd owner and it looks like they have taken car of the car very well.

Welcome to FF. If the car has been maintained well ,then things like the the timing belt and all of the little nuisances should have been taken care of already. If not ,then you should check the timing belt. BTW, Are your rims gold or is that just the photo?

if you want to sell the gold rims you'll have a much easier time selling them in the BST part of the forum.

welcome though man congrats on the svt ! :)

One: Don't try to sell out of the BST we have a waiting period and post count limit for a reason.

Two: Are you sure they were painted by the previous owner? Those may be some rare Gold Ford Racing SVT five spokes. I know they don't make them anymore and I don't think you can buy them anymore.

They were painted when they were taken off the car they are silver where the weights use to be. I know about that post count and all that I read the rules but just don't have space for the rims here in my apartment. So does anyone like the new wheels?

stay with the stock 5 spokes and strip the gold paint off them. They look nicer, and i bet they weigh less than the new ones you just bought.
