SVT's gettin some love over in VW land

was looking through the car lounge on VWvortex.com tonight and came across this thread. I was quite surprised how many people on there said they would choose and SVTF or SVTC. Most people on there are ultra dedicated VW/Audi guys so i was surprised how many of them said the SVT's. just thought you guys might be interested... http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=2008805

Nice to see good comments on our SVTF's. I love my car and was going to trade it in for a new Mustang GT but the order was taking too long and the dealer was di_king me around so I cancelled and got my deposit back. I used my deposit money to get a 6yr/75k Premium Care Extended warranty on my focus and am glad. I'll be handing my SVTF to my son in 2 years as he starts driving. Boy, I wish I was given a SVTF for my first car! At that time I'll be looking into the Mustangs again. Until then, I need to find some twisties around here (ABQ, NM). I just moved from Southern Cal. Can anyone help? Thanks

Hmm... they're being reasonably nice - so far. Give it a couple more days and see where that discussion goes. OTOH the Focus and in particular the SVT Focus is one of the most "European" feeling Fords you can buy at the moment (one of the others being the Contour which I see was also listed as a choice), and perhaps that "euro-ness" appeals to you VW drivers?

And the "Father of the Year" award goes to......

Wow!! You might want to see what that's going to do to your insurance rates BEFORE you make any promises to the boy. I almost had a stroke when I saw what mine was going to charge ME to drive my SVTF.

I'd need a 2nd mortgage to cover the cost of adding my kid....

Cheers,
