Hi all,

Been lurking a bit and decided to post. Looks like a good bunch and forum [8D]

Bought a 2007 Screaming Yellow ZX3 SE. This is my first ford and first brand new car. I'm 6'1" and 250pds and I fit! Its pretty comfortable for what it is. Most impressive to me is the engine, brakes and handling. It handles good for a 17000 car. Back roads driving is fun again. Its not quite broke in but if i need to pull away on the highway it does it pretty well. I'm getting on average 500-550kms a tank of fuel with mixed city and highway driving. My girlfriend just got a 2007 Pontiac Vibe, its pretty much loaded. But the 2.0 Duratech walks all over it *snicker*

The amount of mods for it is impressive as well. My mods wont go to as far as some of you... but I'm looking at tires and suspension. These are more important to me then the engine. Id like a little body stuff as well. Nothing over the top, just enough for people to know its more custom.

Things I'm not impressed with. That i didn't notice till later. The car is not entirely painted. This got right under my skin. You can tell it was painted with the doors on. There are numerous points over the whole car where you can see no coverage. No you cant see bare metal, but it is not yellow either.
I also have the Duratech hard start issue I've read about here. Pretty annoying when a brand new car cranks like theres no fire. These are the only two major issues I see.

Its going to the dealer tomorrow and Im told the body shop will deal with the paint issues. The hard start issue I Haven't mentioned yet... will tomorrow. Talk to you all later!

the hard start is due to the throttle body apparantly, and since you got an 07, the really only choice you have for suspension is eibach or ford racing. If you ask me, SVT wheels would probably look sweet with the yellow especially the 5 spoke ones.
