Noob here - new car

Hey everyone,

I found this site last night while trying to read everything I can about our new car.

We went car shopping on Saturday. First we were all:



But then we were like:







This is my 3rd Mustang (96 V6 Convertible, 99 Cobra). So far this one blows the Cobra away. The Shaker Pro sound system is crazy loud, too, as my wife demonstrated when we were test driving the car!

We love the car so far. Glad I was able to find this site. Looks good.

-Mike

Nice car. I have the 2011 model in Kona blue metallic. The deep impact blue replaced it? It looks close but it looks a little different and no metallic?

Yes, deep impact replaced Kona. I had heard once that there was only one plant in the world that made Kona blue and it was wiped out by the tsunami. I haven't been able to fact-check that, but it doesn't sound outside the realm of possibility.

Anyone can mix kona blue metallic. It's just a combination of colors as all paints are. I got some made into aerosol can for painting my front radiator cover and valve covers

Do you have pics of your valve covers? I was thinking about doing the same thing.

I haven't taken any yet. I am not sure if I like them the darker color Kona blue. They are harder to see now. I may change them. Open for suggestions to go with.
