what to look for when buying a svt focus

hi, i am looking to buy a svt focus pretty soon, and i was wondering what i should look for when i am buying one. what are the major issues with these cars, what goes out on a lot of them. i like these cars a lot and i am actually selling my 1986 xr4ti to buy one of thse for a dependable daily driver. i am also selling my 2000 zx2 to afford one. so what is a fair price for a 2002-04, svt focus, i like the euro package but it is not a requirement, i just like the euro wheels. any advice on buying one of these, or just an review of what its like to live with one everyday. i have about a hour long commute to and from work everyday so i am looking for what it is like to spend a lot of time in this car. just a feel for the everyday driver of this car. thanks for any future help and i hope this is in the right palce.

Moved to the SVT Owners Lounge.

There's a great read here:
So you want to buy a used SVTF?

Oh...

After two days, I'm kinda amazed you've got nothing here. Opinions usually aren't hard to come by on this forum. Anyway, I gave you my SVTF 2 cents on the Merk forum, but I'd be happy to answer anything specific that you think of.

Welcome.

The reason nobody has responded to this is because someone literally asked the same question 10 days ago, with the same title. see about 5 or 6 threads below this
