While at the barbershop the other day i saw an issue of Automobile magazine. (dont know if it was old or not.) had a comparison between the SRT-4, SVT focus, Mazdaspeed protege, and the cooper S. since my barber is fast i didnt get to read the whole thing but here is what i gathered. SRT in 1st, then the SVT then the Cooper and last place was the Mazdaspeed. they basiacally called the SRT the winner cause it was alot more powerful then the other cars. I was hoping to see a WRX in there or at least a Spec-V cause its in the price range. let me know if anyone else got to read it.
