Race Red ST

Last week my dealership that I had ordered a ST3 Package from received a Race red ST2 with Navigation and sunroof. Friday I went out to look at the car, well Saturday I picked it up. I was getting a little tired of waiting for the one I ordered back in May. Instead waiting I decided to buy the one they had and use the price difference to get an extended warranty.

Iím glad I did the car is better then I expected. I beat on the car a bit the first day I had it and filled it up and took a little road trip Sunday Iím already getting 28mpg.

The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? - It protects my head.

Do you have any special rituals when the helmet is concerned like many have? - I wipe it so that I can see better.

Interesting how much more red the new ST is. Really pops next to the other two. Also in comparison, looks like the new ST needs moar low!

its a much brighter red then they other two more like the red they use for the GTI's, does sit a bit higher but it handles so nice not sure I want to mess with that.

Very nice - I initially ordered red but switched to tangerine. I'm kinda having a little stress about it now, I love that red. Only problem is my wife has a race red 2011 Mustang GT, and we have a red F150 as well. I thought having 3 red cars was a little lame!
