I've had my SVT ZX-5 for over 2 years now, and I love the car more now than I did when I bought it. The car loves an autocross course and twisty back roads. The silver exterior and the black leather with red insert interior look great.
6 speed Getrag, very good breaks, great seats.
Stock engine tune stinks, aftermarket is pretty much the first thing you need to do after getting one. Ford went cheap and put a little plastic clip on the dual stage intake, it is prone to breaking. Some companies offer a metal clip but it should of been stock.
