First ever.

Hello all. Just picked me up a black '14 Mustang V6. My first Ford ever, which is funny when you consider I work at the plant that currently builds Mustangs. Story is...I'm a Mopar guy at heart, own a '67 Dart that runs 9.60's currently and have had many mopar racers before that. Haven't bought a new car since '04 and with retirement looming within the next 2-4 years I thought the time was right for a new vehicle, and I do like the current Mustangs, plus the 6 cyl Mustang is faster than the 6 cyl Charger as well as being priced lower and insurance is cheaper, so the Mustang won out. It's not a Premium, it's a manual, 3.31 gears, side louvers (FP6 pkg) and I'm looking to go the 'blackout' route. Having heated seats and remote start installed tomorrow. Don't want to hop it up too much to where it would void the warranty so I'm thinking the axle-back exhaust and an aftermarket cold air intake (no tune) in the future. I'm hoping this car won't be too hard to handle in the snow as it will be the daily driver. Looking forward to meeting new people and learning about my new ride.

Welcome! Your ride will be fine in the snow just be sure to snag some 17" wheels and snow tires (assuming you have 18 or 19s) doing that will actually save you money within the first 2 years.

It's safe. You have to go through a whole series of things to make it work. Put in neutral, push brake pedal, set e-brake, release brake pedal, push a button on remote, get out, lock door with remote....NOW it's set for when you want to start it. Similar deal after you start it remotely...if you don't do it all in the right order you have to start all over again.
