First Time Owner

Hello all,

I'm buying my first "real" car and thanks to your site, I'm going to be poor

I'm picking up a used/loaded 2012 Candy Red GT Premium. Only 1k on the odometer

I'm looking forward to getting it in hand in a few hours!

here's some pics of my car in the meantime from the dealership haha..

Re: First Time Owner

Beautiful car!!!! Now the question is: are you going to avoid the mod bug or embrace it?

Consider it embraced. So far I've chosen these mods lol


MGW short Throw Shifter W/ Heat Shield
MGW composite shift knob-6speed

Ford Racing GT500 style exhaust.
JLT Black Anodized Oil separator (Passenger Side)

I wont be doing anything crazy to the engine because the factory warranty has barely been scratched with only 1k on the odometer. The mods being done will be within the parameters of the warranty...atleast I hope.

Haha funny you say that. I learned the hard way about using credit for mods that add almost no value to your vehicle's resale. I've since paid that mistake off and I'll be making this a cash only venture!

And thanks for the welcome everyone, I hope to become a productive member of this forum and asking lots of questions!

Well I got her back a few hours ago and holy cow, I was not expecting it to be this fun to drive. Surprisingly, I'm finding the "bad" stock shifter easy to operate, haven't missed a gear yet WOT. There are sooo many features on this thing and buttons I don't know what for its crazy. Gonna take me a week to figure it out.

Pairing my phone to sync whopped my *** till I found the sync manual in the glove box Haha. I'm loving it!

Mine did that today! I deleted like 200 contacts afterwards that I've gathered over the years that I don't talk to. Now it works great!

Just the stock 3.31's that come in the manual. I really want to try out the 3.73's but I'm terrified of ruining my factory warranty..

Just buy the parts from Ford and pay through the nose to have the dealer install it.
