SVTF....do you see it as a focus?

To me personally before i got my svt...i always hated the way the focus looks but when i saw the svt i fell in love...to me it just seems like a whole different car...whenever i see a regular focus on the street i kinda feel bad that my car is still a focus...i dunno but i just think its like on a whole different level...better looks, more hp, better suspensions, better interior...all around better car....wat do you guys think....

the svt focus is the exact same as a zx3 focus with a few differances, the major differance is the engine. the only outside cosmetic differance is the bumpers and side skirts.

YES it's a focus. is the lightning not an f150 is the svtc (SVT contour) not a contour? it's kinda bullheaded to drive a focus, praticipate in a focus community, then in your head act like your not drivng a focus.

either way you look at it your stuck. you got a focus. so if you hate the way any focus looks you hate the way your car looks :)

Sigh... these threads always get ugly and they never last long. You have a Focus. It may have an SVT badge on it, but it's still a Focus. And I say that as someone who owns an SVT Focus.

And don't expect that because this was posted in the SVT Owner's Lounge that non-SVT owners won't come in and say something... because they will.

Here are my thoughts on the Ford Focus:

Before I got my focus (ZTS), I never really paid attention to the focus......

I got my ZTS, and it was cool for me to have.....

I fond out what you could do to them...and discovered FF......

I found out about the SVT, and that was like "the elite"......people with money and good jobs had those.......I was envious of those ppl.....Every time I saw one (and STILL to this day), I gawked at them with envy......I wanted one BAD....

I wrecked my ZTS, and I told myself I would have an SVT Focus in 2-3 years...when The insurance went down.......

Now I have my New 04 SVTF, and It is my BABY....I still think of it as a Focus...definitely!!, just the top of the top of the line one.....

A foci is a Foci.........no matter what

And PPL that pull that "I have an SVT, i'm better than you" B.S. PISS ME OFF.......no, you have an
F-150/Mustang/Focus/Contor that was UPGRADED by SVT....same thing just like Roush, Steeda, and Saleen.......

I will go talk to ANYONE with a focus......I don't care what you got...if you are interested, let's talk.....[thunb]

Nobody should attach their self-worth to the car they drive (think small penis). But the truth is, the SVT is the best focus you can get, I don't care what anyone says. I don't think I'm better than anyone because I own an SVT, but every time I drive beside a regular Focus I know I can roast it, in a straight line, in the twisties...wherever; that's why I got the SVT.

Oh, and to answer the question, I do see my SVT as a Focus, but a "super" Focus if you will.

Yep, it still be a focus, it may be a nice focus when you bought it, but its a focus. The europeans still have one over you. Are you that SVT driver i always see that wont give a fellow focus driver a wave?
