Default 2013 CT, had it for 2 weeks, lots of mods so far...

I bought my 2013 CT on 11/3. Its a couple weeks later and ive done a few things. FSport sway bars, Road Magnet lowering springs (review to follow), LEDs throughout, 5000k HID low beams, 3000k HID fog lights, hard wired V1, and a few more things to follow. Planning to do 5mm front and 15mm rear spacers, as well as an Injen intake. So far, im loving this car. 48MPG average so far.

The car looks great!!! You will be pretty happy with the Injen Intake. It is a really quality product and it looks really nice under the hood.

Thanks! Ive only driven the car 15 or so miles, but its pretty nice so far. Nice tone at WOT.. im going to see if their claim of increase gas mileage holds up...

Great choice with the black intake, I have the Black one as well. I have had mine in for about a thousand or so miles and my mileage has stayed around the same to be honest.

I see you put a guard over the overflow tube, I did the same. But you can actually grab the end by the radiator and give it a lttle twist and it wont touch the filter anymore, this way you are not rubbing the two together.

looking good, definitely let us know how the springs are...and plan on going with different wheels, or just spacers for the OEM?

When you get a chance, would you mind posting a video or audio recording of your intake? I would love to hear how it sounds when you start up or rev!
