Has anyone done mods to their GT? If so, can you post pics. I have seen the gls with mods but no GT's. I am trying to convince my father to get the GT over the Focus <img src=/images/forums/snitz/eek.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> and would really like to show him the potential of the GT! Thanks.

Tell him the Focus is a slow, tiny bloated POS. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Seriously, it's heavier than the Elantra, less HP, worse warranty, less legroom frot and rear, the car is inferior. However, it is true that the 170HP SVT Focus will tear an Elantra a new whole, but it costs alot more I for one would not buy a 20K$ Focus!! Yeah MSRP from Ford says it will be 17.5K, however, you know EVERY dealer will markup an SVT Ford!!!

Yeah, the SVT Focus is a little faster than the Stock Elantra...just not much. The times I seen lately are mediocre...even the reviewers seemed surprised that they weren't better. The 0-60's I saw last were around 8 flat. The 7.2 0-60 that everyone was expecting (Motor Trend for example) I haven't seen. I'm still waiting to see some better
track times. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

wow... I never knew the SVT Focus was that slow! Where did you read 8 seconds? Anyway, that means it takes a 170HP Focus to hang with an Elantra. I don't see it beating the Elantra by much if at all. Mag times are not concrete evidence. I can keep up with my Grand Am GT with my Elantra pretty good and the Grand Am according to the mags is 7.7 to 60!! <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

When I was looking to buy a car I had those two cars in my mind GT vs. Focus. Went to ford and the first look at focus it is chip looking but GT is more solid. I end up buying GT and I am very happy with it.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
