Hi guys and girls,
Had my 2016 Spirit Blue FiST MP215 for 4 weeks now and absolutely loving it. I traded my boring heavy FG MKII XR6T in to get it and some thing are taking a bit of getting to. Skinny but supportive seats are taking a bit to get used to as is the small drivers foot well. The bumpy ride is actually one of the first things I adapted to. At first it was pretty bad but has settled in a bit.
I probably won't modify this past the MP215 kit which was negotiated into the drive away price and fitted by Ford. Hopefully any issues are honoured with the 5 year factory warranty. I have been giving the car a good run in, varying rpm and load not exceeding half throttle or 3,500rpm except the other day I got carried away to 4,500 but with 1,400km on the clock, I am quickly coming to the first service where I plan to change the oil.
Accessories planned in the next 6 months are window tint, ClimAir weather shields, Mountune floor and boot mats, Mountune gearstick gaitor and RMM. A front lip/splitter and wheel upgrade would be nice but we will see. Liking the look of the Oz Racing or Sparco designs.
I don't plan on taking it to the track but just getting some joy out of driving again. The Falcon was boring, straight line isn't for me. I don't find drag racing fun and live near some nice twisty roads. So far so good.
If you see me driving around (Sydney Outer West mostly) give me a wave.

2 more for now.
Car looks great mate. You can't go wrong with the MP215 kit, especially if you value the warranty.

Nothing big, just got the windows tinted. I realised the other day that I am having the issue with the actuator/arm making contact with the glass so will have Ford look at it at the upcoming service to see if they can do anything to prevent it. I couldn't find any 5mm tape today to line up the Mountune badge on the back so a little project for another day.
Added ClimAir weather shields today. They look good, very low profile and you can barely notice they are there which is pretty excellent. I am a touch worried about them sitting inside the window channel and scratching the glass but time will tell.
Finally got around to putting on the Mountune Badge. 6mm pinstriping tape was very helpful in squaring it up to the ST badge. Again, some are uploading sideways, what a PITA.
2 more little additions. Mountune boot mat and gear shift gaitor. Quality looks fantastic, just a couple more little things to go now. I wasn't going to change anything on this car but we all know how that ends up.
Now you want a shift knob.
2017 Magnetic, everything but the Recaros. MP 215, mountune shift kit and shift knob, Husky floor liners. That's all I'm doing, I swear!
