Pretty excited about this car, I've done a ton of research before pulling the trigger on Saturday night @ Gary Yeoman's Ford in Daytona.

I've got a few minor issues with the window tint and the ST logo on the engine cover is all warped/pulled-up (but they'll replace) but all in all, I'm super happy.

Already bought:
- CP-E Stage2 rear engine mount (Ford Focus ST xFlex? Rear Motor Mount Stage2 - cp-e?)
- car-specific iPhone mount from proclipusa.com
- laser guide to place/park the car in the garage

Already done:
- ran across a post and video on unplugging the center channel tweeter, which for me really helped out the Sony system in the car, it was so front-focused with the tweeter connected
- followed another video I saw and added polyfill to the stock Sony amp, made a little bit of improvement, well worth the $3 spent.

Future plans:
- (appt set already) Window tint: have the dealer-installed garbage scraped off and using some high quality ceramic (and darker) Lumar film
- Keeping the head unit, replacing everything downstream (this upcoming product will supposedly make it easier: DSR1 - 8-Channel Interactive Signal Processor w/ Integrated iDatalink Maestro Module | Rockford Fosgate®)
- Intercooler replacement, exhaust, etc etc (whatever it takes to get to Cobb's "Stage 3"). I'm not sure how quickly I'll get there, but it'll happen
- Find a set of 15" rims for track day use, I've already got 8 tires in great shape for track use from another car of mine.

I've got a month to get used to the car before my yearly trip to the Tail of the Dragon, I'm looking forward to putting the car through it's paces!

Very nice car. Those wheels and calipers really set it off. 15" wheels for the track?
