Picked it up Sat. afternoon. I had to get a white one. It took a few days to get it because the dealership didn't have a white Fusion on the lot. Anyway, so far so good. The only bad thing is it has been raining too much. :( It was a nice and clean. When I get it clean maybe I'll post up some pics. A few q's:

Tint on the windows. I hear there is a problem getting the tint to go on the back window because of all the dots on the top of the glass. Anyone else hear about this or have their windows tinted?

Oil change on the I4. What is up with the cannister thing? How much are you paying for oil changes? I have had trucks the last 10+ years and have always changed the oil myself. With this cannister filter, I may have it done.

Who has XM or Sirius? I had XM in my truck. But, I let the tuner go in the trade. I really want a behind the dash type kit. Anyone have one?

Last but not least, am I the only one here with an S?

As far as I know, you are the only "S".

I have the V6, so I cannot talk about the canister thing, I hear it's a pain in the ass, though.

The tint is a little hard to do in the rear window. My guy heated my bubbles, and then scrubbed them down with a brillo-type pad. Tint stuck no problem.

Welcome to the board!

Your not the only S model on the forum and welcome. I've had my S model since October and have had only one issue so far. Not like I'm expecting any others but mine has a Airbag light currently on and in need of investigation, no big deal.
There are a few methods for one to have tint applied to the back window, Swoop mentioned one way, mine was put on just under the Tefal dots and from the outside it is not noticable.
The oil change issue you will need to ask yourself the question is it worth another 5 minutes to change the oil filter cartrage. There is a hex nut on the bottom of the cartrage cap used to drain the housing first, using a strap wrench spin off the bottom cap and the filter is attached to the cap. Pull the old cart off, push the new cart on and replace the cap O ring, spin it all back on and thread on the drain hex nut. The Oil cartrages can be bought at the Ford Dealer Parts department for around $12.00 instead of paying $24.00 to have the service dept. do it for you.
Can't help you with the XMS radio.
:cheers:

Thanks for the responses! All good info! Looks like I found the right site. I called the dealership. They said 29.99 for an oil change. I'm still debating what I want to do. I have always done it myself. But, I think I'll let them do the first one. :)

Hello everyone, I just got my black, manual transmission Fusion S. I am very exited to start working on it. Anyone have body kit/spoiler suggestions?

Congrats on your purcahse :)

We don't have the S model in Canada. what's the difference between the SE and S ? Perhaps that's why there are things in the owner's manual which don,t make sense.

They are online in ford.com. Basically the upgrade in the SE is:

- the redundant audio controls on the steering wheel
- 6 speakers
- power driver seat adjustments
- back pockets on front seats
- message center with trip computer
