Hello,

I saw a 2002 Silver SVT online at a local dealership I am going to check out. The horizontal piece (handle) on the hatch is painted black. I looked at the identical car last week (2003) that was body color. Is black correct for the 2002 or is that someones idea of a "mod"?

^^^NO.
Unless, you plan on running one of the huge rear bars in the back.
The non-reinforced arms have been known to break when running the 25mm(Eibach) or 28.6mm(Steeda) rear sway bars.

But, if this is a daily driver, and not a track car, there's nothing to worry about. [;)]

Thanks...any other differences?
02's and 03's have the 5 spoke wheels...04's have the six spoke.

02's only come in 3drs, 5dr models were available in 03 and 04's

02's didn't come with the Euro version
