Get the SVT if you want a sports car. Get the ZX3 if you don't. It is worth it unless you don't want a warranty. If you're going to buy aftermarket parts for your car get something used.

if you are the type of driver that goes all out everywhere, get an SVT. The SVT has much better suspension, which meansbetter cornering, turning, etc. If you want a quick car with some great possibilities get the PZEV. (I'm sorry I'm very biased, but, I do go all out everywhere)
