"Willow" 2014 Sterling Gray Titanium

I probably won't be doing a whole lot to this car, but I'm super proud that it's mine and that it's really pretty :P I'll do a few posts here to begin with to show a chronology so far. Next steps might be debadging and adding some decals. I'm fighting with myself about the decals because I'm used to customizing everything to make it mine, but I also kind of don't want to ruin the nice clean look.

Here she is the day I drove her off the lot, and I immediately got her windows tinted the same day.

The Titanium handling package apparently comes with a set of Michelin Pilot 3 sport summer only tires, so I immediately changed those out for some A/S tires for the amount of driving I expect to be doing in the northern more snowy states. Huge drama with these tires as I was sold a set of defective ones and it took forever to a). diagnose that the tires themselves were defective and b). get some good ones on there. Of course I packaged up the old tires and took them home to put back on later.

Caught this photo one time while I was over at Sears trying to get the tire situation fixed.

Friday I switched out my headlights for some Phillips Crystal Vision 4000K bulbs. Several of my colleagues saw me working on my car and were surprised I was doing it myself. A girl can be handy!

Contrast comparison next to my dad's 2015 Fiesta:

Good time for your own "build thread", I see you decided on a name for the car.

"Whomping Willow" reference perchance?

More like Willow Rosenberg from Buffy the Vampire Slayer lol I just really like the name Willow anyway. There's something very free and spirited feeling about it.

Not much going on. Kind of in a life funk. Not sure what else to do with my car right now anyway. Trying to save money for an inevitable emergency. Still fighting with myself over adding decals. Scuffed the hell out of the right front wheel this morning riding up to a curb spot, and the grinding sound and subsequent visual made my stomach turn.

Dude, I love BtVS. I say that while waving my laminated man card wildly in the air.
