2008 Focus ruined it for SVT

    Up until now the only Ford vehicles that got round fogs were SVT vehicles. Now the 2008 Focus had to ruin that distinction. :nono:

    That's okay, almost nobody in the USA knows how to use foglights properly anyway. Drive down any street when the sun isn't out (rain, night, whatever) and almost everyone with fogs will have them turned on -- even rear fogs, if they have 'em.

    considering SVT is finished, it doesn't matter either way.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall the fox body Mustang GT as being an SVT vehicle...all of em had the round fogs, cobra included

    They weren't bad cars. The early ones had a few issues, but so did GM's Euro transplant (Catera :greddy:).


    They were priced a big jump higher than the car they replaced, and that didn't help sales much.

    The SVT Contours were pretty well-balanced machines; power was adequate, and they handled quite good for a wrong-wheel-drive car.

    If only they could've gone AWD, like the Tempo did briefly (only in 4-cyl auto though :mamoru:).
