New From MD

Good morning everyone!

What's up?! My name's Josh and I'm an undergrad student living in MD. I have been looking for a Mustang ownership forum for a while and most of the ones I've come across seemed pretty dead for some reason. Some of them hadn't been posted on for months if not years. But I found this one which seemed to have live people on it so here I am.

I bought a 2014 V6 in September of this year. I've driven it almost daily. I love it and will pretty much find any excuse just to drive. Before my Mustang, which I saved up for for a long time, I was driving a family hand-me-down; a 1998 Honda Accord sedan complete with peeling paint and a coffee-stained cloth interior. My dad has a 2002 GT (the car I learned to drive a stick in ) and his dad has an '08 GT plus a 64-and-a-half 'vert. Those cars helped me to fall in love with the Mustang. But it wasn't until I drove a '14 that I knew I had to get one for myself. And so I did.

Now she's pushing 4500 miles and going strong so far. I haven't done much at all except for a Bassani axle-back exhaust (which I'd suggest for any V6 owner). I also swapped the stock incandescent dome lights with LEDs which are much brighter for when I drop my keys under the seat at night every night. I also put in some all-weather Weathertech floormats because the carpeted ones weren't doing it for me. Future mods? Nothing mechanical for a while. But I am doing a grille swap soon. Gonna take out the V6 upper and lower grilles plus the chrome grille surround and put in a Boss 302 grille set.

As you can see, I bought her with the FP6 appearance package which adds black side-mirror covers, the black spoiler, the quarter-window louvers, and the black 18" wheels.

Welcome! Love the new ride btw. Congrats!

I'm also diggin' your upper & lower grille plans. The factory grilles on these cars just don't do it for me either. You seem to be right on track though.

Wish you the best with your Mustang. If you're ever looking for new upgrades and have questions, feel free to hit me up!
