Sounds like you hate everything about it except a turbo, 6 speed and $$$.
To me that just isn't the right way to own a car if you really love cars.
But then again I hear what you r're saying.

Who says you won't have to worry about having a warranty claim denied? Car companies are all the same. The promise you the moon and give you the shaft.

Sorry my man. I stand corrected on 2 counts. The tech info under your name didn't even register, plus I misunderstood and thought that you were getting rid of a WRX for the SVT.

Good luck and more power to ya. There is a lot of nice stuff out there. It's not an "ALL WRX" universe. HA!

Oh Jay! You must get brue! Brue is a good base colour so we can paint it BRP!

This all soley depends on the lawsuit for my RS though.

No shame in that, just hope they have the reliability issues addressed. I've rented three Foci and enjoyed driving them all, but they are underpowered in all but ZX3/5 form. SVT should be an interesting auto-x car.

Just don't sticker it up to look like this...

It's a damn cool car. Plus, I think they're coming out with a 4 door hatch SVT next year, which I think would be very cool.

Either way, there's no shame in that car.

Well, if you wanted to stick with Subie you could always go for an '03 RS. Or buy the lease out on yours.

Jay's car is a lemon and he is still trying to get them to buy it back, so why would he want to buy out the lease?

No slackers allowed: Ford looking to protect its turf with latest SVT Focus creation
As far as we can tell, no one outside of Ford has any idea exactly what lurks under the hood of this latest Focus from the company’s Special Vehicle Team. And the people inside Ford aren’t exactly talking.

“This is a work in progress to maintain our standing in the performance vehicle niche,” says SVT PR man Alan Hall. “We will guard our turf.”

So whatever they’re cooking up under that monster hood scoop we’re not certain. The current SVT Focus, introduced in April as a three-door, runs a Cosworth-tuned 170-horsepower version of the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that powers everyday Focuses. A five-door SVT Focus joins the showroom later this year.

For what it’s worth, the SVT guys were running their latest work against competitive vehicles like the Volkswagen R32 and the Honda Civic Si, as well as the complete stable of SVT products. The R32 boasts a 237-hp 3.2-liter V6, while the Si 2.0-liter four pushes just 160 hp (however, the non-U.S. Civic Si Type-R makes 200 hp).

One possible explanation: Maybe Ford has decided to move ahead with the four-wheel-drive 300-hp Focus Cosworth shown in Los Angeles in 1999.

I think there MIGHT be a nicer way to express that opinion. Jeez.

I would take a 2.5RS (01 or 02) over a Focus ANY day. Most non-Subaru people I know would also agree with me.
