      Nice.
      If I didn't need a truck, I would have bought the same car instead of my F150.

      I didn't get the upper level with Racaro racing seats if that is what your looking for. Way too uncomfortable for daily driving :thumbdwn:

      Got a poser pic with some fast and furious cars I came across today though :p:

      Got the rear windows tinted last weekend. Also a interior shot that was requested.

      Still on the fence about plasti dipping the wheels bronze. You know the "STI" look;)

      I agree about the Recaros. I test drove an ST with them and they sucked.

      BTW, now I know why that Challenger at SEMA had a push bar... FNF!!! Funny, but there was nothing around the car to let on that it was a movie car. I guess I'm behind the times ;)

      This is a little late, but welcome to the club. Mine is a NOS 14 ST3. bought in May.

      As for the uncomfortable recaros, this was the truth... until you cut the ears off the bottom cushion tray. Was definitely gut wrenching to take a sawzall to those seats though, but WELL worth it.

      So the car had been a ton of fun, but looks like problems on the horizon.

      Started throwing random misfire codes a weeks back. Then it said they were directly in Cylinder #2 . Sent to Ford, and the reprogrammed the ECU. They don't have any other solutions at this time:eek:

      So the fun begins

      Did you get the extended warranty?

      I'm buying it next month. It's like 2 grand for the 100k one, and it is through Ford directly

      ...and back to the dealer :(

      They gave me a fusion hybrid for a loaner. I feel like I've been castrated:roll:

      So they figured out the issue. Excessive Carbon build up.

      I guess running 91 octane and doing 90mph in 3rd gear isn't being hard enough on it.

      Alright then:burnout:

      noted... How many miles does your car have on it? Ours are pretty similar, but I'm never really hard on it because these things suck the fuel when the foot goes down.

      really? I wonder if it is the fuel out there. I haven't had any codes over here in KY yet, and mine is at 19k. I don't even use 93 all the time. lol

      But i do have carbon build up on the exhaust tip pretty good...

      All direct injection cars naturally have excessive carbon buildup in the valves because there is no fuel to wash the gunk down. The gunk comes from egr gases and PCV blowby. I recommend looking into a catch can for the PCV to help with the buildup.
