Another Sonic Blue SVT

So after a year and a half of searching, I finally found an SVT to my liking a few weeks ago. I've been putting some pics in the SVT Owner's thread, but I figure I can dump some here to show off as well!

A little about the car: The previous owner was a Ford mechanic of 20 years. It was his year round DD; he sold it as he's got a blue 2013 ST1 on order. Pretty much all the necessary and preventative maintenance has been kept up. He bought it at 60k, and I believe that all of the modifications were done by the owner before him, as he said he bought it almost exactly as it sits now. This car will be my DD, as I save up for an ST, at which point it will become the winter driver. At least that's the plan. I have an odd internal debate every time I put money into modding this car, as I could have taken the money and put it away for the ST! I put a rough $1000ish limit on my mod spending for now...

Here's how she started:






Won a cool trophy at a local car show a week after owning it! No idea what the award was for hah.



And here's what I've done, cosmetically, so far:
Build Number:



"Carbon fiber" third brake light sticker:


Plastidipped white wheels:


Other mods:
Tom's Tune, CFM blue plug wires (can't even see them ha!), K&N drop in filter.

Future plans:
Exhaust (likely Borla), short throw shifter (likely Steeda), HIDs (I've got a pending sale on some used Mach's, I'll probably paint the insides black, with silver/gun metal rings), blue-painted brake calipers, Euro grill. Open to suggestions as well!
