Same design as those rims from ebay in your other thread. I got these from AM though during one of their sales.

Good price. Same as what I paid for mine. If mine is any indication, yours is worth a few grand more than what you paid.

Enjoy the six for what it is. Don't let these clowns waving their junk around fool you (love you guys). Avoid Coyotes and go beat up on some 4.6's. Max hp on stock inernals with the right gearing will put a smile on your face. Screw power ceilings.

After driving an SHO for a week, I'm convinced I don't need more than 400hp in a daily. Anything more is just trouble waiting to happen.

I had a 2011 Premium V6, and loved it. There was a recall for the airbag, but the local dealer fixed it no questions asked even though I was the third owner.

Also an auto, it served me well up to 61k which is what I traded it in at. I would say at least get a Premium, I test drove a base 5.0 and even though the price was good, I couldn't warrant buying a base period.

I definitely agree. If you sit in a Premium 2011-2014, it is very hard to sit back in a base 2011-2014. Now I will say this - The 2015-2016 base models are almost as nice as the 2011-2014 Premiums.

The 2015-2016 base models still have a decent interior, LCD in the cluster, backup camera, and a few other goodies.

The 2011-2012 base model V6s are the ugliest. Nasty looking steering wheel.

I have gotten twice refunds from Fords ESP plans when I traded my Escapes in and I had used the plan for minor repairs. Either you did not have the brands own warranty or the business manager didn't want the charge back that will go against his profit when you got a refund.

That's why I decided to Frankenstein my own Premium Wheel haha. Found a used GT500 Wheel with worn buttons and leather for $45 on ebay, new buttons cost $110 for both sets, and a shop in my town will reupholster the wheel with new leather for $25 (the leather is left over from another one of their jobs so they are only charging me labor), so all and all I'll have a Premium GT500 wheel for only $180 compared to paying $300+ for a new wheel.

I agree. This thing is plenty powerful enough for me. I've owned a GTO and a G37 S and the V6 I just bought is a much smoother ride IMO. Plenty fast enough. I drove both and auto and a manual and much prefer the manual. The manual is super smooth compared to the others I've owned, very short throws.

The car is super clean. Guy used it to go back and forth to the airport. One owner. It's race red, which is not my favorite color, but I'll deal with it for the price. Now I just need some black wheels...

Explain the "usual fixes" a little more.

in my order of preference:

learn the tight L/R gates and to use the centering spring to guide you into 3/4 and compensate for it when trying for other gears.

motor mounts: these helped me a lot with a blocking issue esp at high rpms, but they added a lot of NVH

MGW shifter...I never disliked the oem till I went back to a friends car that had one...what a floppy thing it is

I swapped out trans fluid (early 2012 build) with Redline MTL

high flow (volume) clutch line...I couldn't feel anything

I didn't rank the white cue ball shift knob from SickSpeed but it would be in the top 1/2.

mine is fussy and you need to learn muscle memory? to deal with the tight gates...fully depress the clutch all times

Ya agree with the Premium route. Extra goodies are very fun to have! Hard to sit in a base. I have 14 Premium auto. 18 inch premium wheels heated seats, mirrors, etc. hard to spend extra $ on v8.

Little late. Found a 2012 one owner base with low miles for a few dollars. I'm happy with basic for less money.
