Default 2012 F-Sport Starfire Pearl, Pics inside!

Hello all ,

Just wanted to share my new daily driver with the group. I picked her up 2 weeks ago tomorrow and I have loved every second so far. The mpg was the only reason I picked her up due to my daily commute being around 80-100miles. I have averaged around 43mpg and already clocked about 1000 miles in the past 2 weeks.

Current mod list:

30% tint on fronts and 5% on rears
3m carbon fiber dinoc roof wrap
JDM Beatsonic shark fin antenna (glossy black)
6000k H11 100watt HID Kit
Injen short ram intake system

Coming soon:

Wheels & Tires
Front & Rear Lip
Front clear Bra
Full F-sport optional suspension upgrades
6000k Fog Lights

UPDATED PICS:

Work Emotion XD-9 Custom metallic black from the new Ford vehicle color line up
18x8 +45 Front
18x9 +38 Rear
225/40/18 Falken Tires

I have the center caps but leaving off for now. I have had these for about a month in Matte Gray Silver and hated the color combo on the Starfire pearl. Don't get me wrong the Matte Gray Silver finish looks amazing, just not with the white car. Let me know what ya think

Nice! I'm about to get the F-Sport springs and some Enkei wheels. I'm considering either RPF1 or PF01.

Would you mind telling me more about the Injen SR and its performance gains, if any? Some feedback I've read said that there was improvement, some that I've read, on the other hand, say that the performance gain just goes into faster charging of the batteries. Hope to hear from you!

I really can't say on performance because it is a hybrid so I'd never waste dyno time. It does sound cool and my mpg is normal still but I don't mash the gas and that's the only time you hear it. Around 4,000 rpms it's a note able difference. F Sport springs arrived today! Should be on shortly ;-)

Well the springs are on! Took about 2 hours to do the fronts and 1 hour to do the rears. Immediately you can see the difference. I only went to fill up the tank to get all the weight in the car, so I have not driven much at all. I will take pics tomorrow.
