If you owe $9000, and the car costs $22,000 +/-, your total amount financed will be $31,000, if you had no other cash to put down. Subtract from that whatever they give you for the ZX3

That's a $600-$800 a month payment ($31,000) on a purchase depending on your interest rate and length of loan. And you'd better be havin' gold balls credit, for a good interest rate.

Might think about modding what you've got.

A 31K focus does not a good deal make.

that doesn't sound like a good deal at all man... seems like you should have just done some research before purchasing a car in the first place. If you really want it that bad go for it, but it would be more worth your while to mod your current car bring it up to par with the svt. That is unless you are getting it just because it's an svt and has everything already...

I agree... Just do some modding to your current focus and stay at that

Well to correct one point. If you owe $9K on the car and they allow say $7K on trade, you are now only $2K up side down. So this would be the amount you would need to add to your purchase figure. And most states only charge sales tax on the trade difference amount, this would give you a savings on the tax amount of your trade figure.
As for the price on the Orange SVTF, I just purchsed a new Yellow SVT Euro Pkg and gave $17,800 includes a Dell, 12 month/12,000 mile extended bumper to bumper warranty extension for $1.00 and a airfare credit to go pick it up.
It doesn't hurt to talk and work figures, give it a shot. Just don't commit to something outragious. These little cars are not know for holding their value. If you late decide you don't want to keep the car you could be upside down very deep, for a very long time.

Also, remember that there are lots of SVTF's out there for much less than 23k. I bought mine used (2002 w/ 24,000 miles) in April of '04 for $11,500.

I'd try to get something that has at least some warranty left on it, but little mileage never hurt anyone. Just check to make sure all of the TSB's have been taken care of and whatnot.

btw ... $23k sounds really expensive for an SVT. If you're gonna drop that kinda cash, you might as well look into an 03-04 WRX,

don't pay that much for an old car. it's 2005 now, so that car is last years model. and check the build date, because it could have been built in 2003 and sat on the lot. I just ran the kelley blue book value on it, brand new $18,913. if it's used, (I put in 5000 miles), the blue book is only $15,500. it dropped $3400 just from having 5k miles on it. so is that 2004 worth $23k? hell no! print out a blue book report, take it in, if they don't match or beat that price, talk to the general manager, because that is BS.

thats almost exactly what i paid for mine, same yr and miles. Anyways, like he said, for that kind of cash you can get a better car than an SVT (not they that are bad at all), but like he said, a WRX or maybe a GTI are about in that price range, or maybe (just me dreaming) you could probably find a used Audi S4, but it your call. If your looking to spend more money, why dont you make yours an SVT, or better.

I bought my '04 Brand New last September - Loaded up Non-Euro. It had been sitting on the Dealer's lot since March! Sticker was $21,5xx, I paid $16,400.

5,000 miles so far and no problems.

No Way you should pay anything close to sticker on an '04.
