Most important is a good wax, take care of the paint it's "fragile". Second most important is have fun.

Inspect for panel alignment, and especially the tailgate/tail lights and hood/headlights for paint rubbing issues. Most seem to have misaligned panels but point them out to the dealer before taking delivery.

There is one thing that will happen after taking ownership and driving an ST. You will feel the urge to "Drive like a Di*k". It is not a matter of "If" but "When". There really is no way to avoid this, just accept it. I never was that guy before my ST (and I'm 44), and never thought I would be either. But here I am. :smile:

just read that thread a bit, it sounds awesome! how would I sign up for that?
If I remember, Ford should send you a notification by mail for the event.
this year's season is coming to a close for the year, so you might have to wait for next year.
Think you can go to the website an give the vin ## to register early,
I'll try to find the link....

EDIT: found link: ST Octane Academy at Ford Performance Racing School

It's low so if you aren't used to low cars... watch out for curbs and parking strips!
OH and be forewarned to become addicted and have lots of fun:)
