Werd. Maybe they can sell the body pieces separately to make both of us happy.

Is that your new pickup line Ray?

A little more power would be nice. I think they made a big mistake supercharging and not throwing turbo on. It's not the mustang and this segment loves turbos. It's even catching on in the pony car segment. The car looks pretty decent but I'm sure it will be way overpriced though. The ST will probably out perform all around and cost less.

I'll take the shifter knob. The stock one is too tall. The rear diffuser looks cool, but I don't much care to put a Roush ad on my tail. The suspension mods are intriguing.

Probably not the thread for this, but ford said pricing would be competitive. That's anything but competitive.

Plenty fast lol)
Any car worth it's weight, can get to 120mph. I think it is how fast you can get there is what makes the difference, and owning the car fun. This car is not living up to the competition, 230 hp and 210 tq is really not that much. Especially when there is an option for a Camry SE that starts at $23,000 to have a 268 hp 248tq set up.

I love the car, the looks, and the wheels. The increased power is a step in the right direction, but came up short for me. Something closer to 250-270 is more in line with what I would want. Oh, wait, I already have that.

YES........yes you do. I loved riding in your car.

A small detail that I really love on this new roush.....the grills.
All of the honeycomb grills have holes the whole way through.
There's no fake honeycomb with plastic filling the holes like some models.
