Hella nice. I think that's my new favorite color. It's nice too, that the v6's are no longer the performance bastard children. Very nice car.

Pics look great to me... but I'm no expert. The only thing that kills it for me is that front license plate holder. Did the dealer put that on?

Here's a better tip, it's not the quality of the camera that takes good pics! Over cast days are great for taking pictures. It's a more even lighting with less hot spots and reflections. Ever try shooting people on a sunny day? Everyone looks like a squinting raccoon. LOL!

Nice looking car BTW.

Those are the new V6 Performance Package wheels. I can tell you from detailing them that the faces are all very well polished and painted, but the inside of the wheel varies a LOT in surface roughness.

I'm actually not a huge fan of caliper covers either, but I hate scrubbing wheels even more! I'm hoping these will cut down on the brake dust buildup a bit. Smart move by Ford using a dark wheel with the higher dust / higher performance brakes though!

Yeah...welcome to Illinois, one of the most financially broke states in the union, and one of only three left that still makes us have a front plate. Maybe we'll finally figure out that we can collect the same amount in plate fees, make half the plates, and net more money - but I doubt it!
