Hey guys/gals.

I saw this thread on other forums and figured I should try it over here!

Today I installed my Steeda CAI and tune. I took it out in November because the wife and I were thinking of selling the Fusion for an F-150.

Well we traded her old focus for the truck and will be keeping the Sport!


It's a 2014 F-150 XTR 4x4 with the 5.0L

We love it!

I cleaned the windows and exterior lights of road salt. In the dead of a Midwestern winter, that's about all we CAN do.

I.. drove my car today.

in the past 10 months I have put on 2,400 miles. It just sits in the driveway and looks good. Along side my truck, which I put less than 2k miles on it this year as well..

But hey, at least when I offload the fusion it’ll be like new!

Right in guys!

I just put some mudflaps on the truck. I'll want to giv the fusion a bath but it's too cold out, oh well.. Interior is still freshly detailed.. About all that can be done in this weather.

Put LED bulbs in my puddle lights. Compared to my 2012 Ram with OEM led puddle lights.. these aftermarket bulbs I put in the fusion are twice as bright as the ram. Though.. hard to capture light output but here’s an idea.. eh.

In line of the gopro..

I was thinking of picking up a few of these for my vehicles. A bit pricey at $400 a pop but in todays times..

I was going to opt for the setup with both a front/rear view camera but with my 5% on the fusion and 1% on the Durango - it’d be worthless at night time..

I cleaned the leather interior of my 2013 Ford Fusion. The seats looked clean, but after applying leatherique pristean clean and wiping it off, I could definitely see quiet a bit of dirt on the towel I was using.

That's pretty slick! I was amazed how much stupid driving I caught on my gopro when I had it up the other day. Even got some asshat cutting me off.

Pretty crazy how much dirt and grime collects inside out cars! The beauty of leather, you can clean it!

Made an appointment for mine to go into dealership this week for a blown speaker (driver door). Got a little over excited with new Arcade Fire album on the highway last week.

Today I...

moved my fusion, after sitting in the same spot for a week, from the street parking to the driveway. And moved the Durango to the street.

But I loved it.. that 45 seconds sitting in the car and hearing the sound system.. as stated above - the sound systems in these newer cars these days are quite good. I’m impressed with the Fusion sound system.

However I noticed better quality with Sirius vs FM radio. I pay for Sirius and when I swap to FM for traffic.. just sounds shitty.

Yeah I'm always using the Jukebox so I never notice the sound quality difference.

I just drove to work and got some fuel, I do love the AWD with winter tires.. When we had a heavy snowfall this winter (over 30cm overnight) and then 100+km/h wind gusts made some pretty nasty drifts. The Sport took it like a champ! I didn't even get close to getting stuck while my neighbour managed to get his STi stuck pulling out of his driveway.

Nice! Right now it's still too cold to wash the car but we should be a over freezing in a few days so I can give the Fusion a detail.


Interior stays pretty clean/freshly detailed it's just the exterior that drives me nuts!

You drive a fusion. I don't think anyone really cares if you have a scratch..

Anywho, due to thread bump I guess I'll post up.

Today I moved my car so I could get the trash can out from the corner. Looked at last time I got oil changed which was 8 months ago so made a reminder to have ford come pick the car up for a oil change.

i know how bad it gets out there with the road salt and shit haha, washing the outside of your car in alberta is synonymous with doing the snow dance haha. good thing its easy to get rid of small scratches, thats another reason why i dont really want to buy a brand new car because everyone always is fearful of that first scratch from the guy with the rust bucket parking too close haha

Not to call you out.. but I dont think you can afford a new car to begin with...

And not everyone is fearful.. otherwise who would you buy your used cars from if no one bought a new car? :screwy:


..ahhhh okay I got my dick in a half joke in today :cheesy:
