FNSMOKE New 2013 Ti owner. Picked up a hatch in white last week and loving it.
The standard packaging on the '13 Titaniums is a great value, considering it has everything I wanted.
I was pleased to find a Ti with the handling package. I plan on getting some snow shoes for her in month or so and pack the 18" wheels away.

Yeah the outer diameter and rolling radius of the spare wheel is identical or close enough to that of the 18" wheel to be considered a full size dissimilar spare tire. It might be a few inches narrower as it is the stock size for the cars with the 16" wheels.

Have tinted the windows (15%), moonroof (5%) and the windshield (50%). New sound--amp, powered sub-woof & speakers--to be installed next Tuesday.

BTW...I have NO affiliation with Crutchfield. Loaded the equipment into my on-line cart about 3pm yesterday 09/27, my advisor, Buck, monitored my order, shipped the equipment out 2 day free UPS, and it arrived at UPS in Doraville, GA at noon TODAY for delivery to me on Monday, October 1. Fantastic service.
Hope I haven't violated posting rule with this endorsement.
I have been shopping Crutchfield since 1993. Their customer service is TOP and COMPLETELY here in the USA (VA) !!

Its going to be my wifes car but I'll drive it to work. My Mustang GT/CS and F-150 Raptor suck for gas mileage.

The 2013 was cheaper and had the back up camera and factory remote start. I do wish I had the rain sensing wipers and auto-dimming rear view mirror like the 2012s had but in reading some of the other threads, looks like they were troublesome.
Congrats on the new car! I was between tuxedo black and white platinum but I went with white. They're both beautiful colors!

roswelltop I just reviewed a thread asking if anyone has updated his 10 speaker Sony system, which motivated me to return to this thread.

As I mentioned in my post above, I am having new equipment installed on Tuesday. The 6 speaker system IMHO is simply awful. MP3 & any Sirius music sound the worst. A CD of a particularly well produced album (i.e. Eagles, Hotel California) is listenable. But at it's best, listening to this system is like listening with cotton stuffed in my ears.

I don't consider myself an audiophile by any stretch, and I am spending less than $1,000 total, but I do enjoy a wide range of music genre, and the sound system can make or break my ride.
