    2017 NB, pulled in to the service bay at Koons Falls Church Ford this afternoon only to see another NB waiting in the dropoff...about 10 feet from another NB. Service adviser looked at me and said "uh, was there a memo about blue focus day or something?"

    Solid color choice my dudes.

    Definitely popular, and looks good - wonder how many black ones like mine were shuffled outta the factory? Methinks, not too many

    https://www.dotsontuning.com/pages/tuning < Calvin performed the tune. Satisfied with it, overall. No issues, just took a bit of time to dial in some base line runs, nonetheless he has earned my business.



    I don't have substantial upgrades in comparison to ardevas09, I have a full turbo back and intake, and was quite impressed with what Calvin was able to accomplish. It had been well over a decade since I've had someone tune my car, in general. So, I was hesitant on the idea of E-tuners, went with Mach V as a safe alternative, and as a consolation they are a Cobb Certified Pro Tuner.

    Conservative tune, that still allows me to achieve 25mpg (mixed drive), and have a little fun when switching to Sport mode.

    I got tuned by Calvin at MachV also. Our numbers are way different though... 🤔

    My power mods are the following;

    ✔️Cobb Accessport
    ✔️Cobb catback exhaust
    ✔️Mountune front mount intercooler
    ✔️Mountune charge pipe kit
    ✔️Mountune high flow intake
    ✔️Mountune sound suppression chamber
    ✔️Mountune recirculation valve
    ✔️Mountune (Turbosmart) wastegate actuator
    ✔️NGK iridium IX 1 step colder spark plugs

    Has anyone painted or coated the cheap plastic-ee fog lamp surrounds? They make the front end look like junk, and carbon fiber replacements are expensive - like $450 for the pair. My Ford guy mentioned a wrap, but I have never done that.

    I have already been through the worst possible scenario with the car so I'm keeping it for life at this point. When its beaten down and broken it'll find some new life as a project car.

    Purchased the car CPO in November of 2017, got about 3 total weeks of use out of it before the dreaded head gasket issue became a reality. Scorched the engine block really good in cylinder 3. Got a brand new engine block and assembly shipped out from Spain and installed in the car for $0.00 at 23k miles and a full service on the drive-train components (Sheehy Ford Midlothian)
    Purrs like a kitten now and I have been enjoying it ever since.

    No engine modifications yet, just an AWE aftermarket tuner exhaust (muffled) which was there already when I purchased it (sounds just right, not too loud or obnoxious but has some growl) and some EBC yellowstuff pads and new rotors.

    Hopefully now that things have settled a bit I'll be able to hit some local car meets and join some groups.
    Welcome! Another SG here in the Richmond area, too few of us here.

    Another fellow Richmond driver here- 2017 NB. I have only seen a fellow NB on Powhite Parkway a couple of times in the year+ Ive had it. Although I do remember an SG in the parking lot of my old apartment a few years ago.
    '17 NB RS- soon to be gone
