Just picked up a new 2016 st!

I have been a member of Focusfanatics for a while, and had a 2002 Focus svt. Recently I have bought a 2016 Focus St, I was wondering what things I should know I'm getting into. Anyone here have any cool tips or tricks I should know about?

Im on the beginning of my 3rd week, almost 1st thousand miles, is Oxford White and is a ST-1. I feel the Recaros too uncomfortable when I try then, sunroof is not a deal breaker for me same as the radio since I can do my own stereo upgrade. Only mods so far, I replaced the radio control car ugly antenna with a carbon fiber shorty, I replaced the huge and quiet resonator with a Maganaflow Racing Resonator(part #10426) and it sounds awesome, a Mountune (HIGH FLOW AIR FILTER ELEMENT 2363-AF-AA). Not overly loud, but enough to make people look, LED back up light and turn signal and last for now 15% window tint with a 6 inch strip in the windshield... Near future a MBRP S4200AL cat-back, MBRP #FG012BLK - 3" Turbo Down Pipe, Mountune Accesport, Mountune Intercooler, Roush intake kit or Mountune intake kit... And later on mountune Sport Spring Set, but all that will be eventually since my wife will kill me if I spend money like that in one shot...

Maybe yours is...... I just order parts & mention I have some parts coming, then the bill comes in & she'll pay it & ask does the car or truck need these or this. Going on for many yrs on all the vehicles.
