Thanks guys. Driving impressions so far: I've never driven an NC, so I can't really compare it to that, but it does feel a lot like my NB as far as stiffness and power steering feel. It has similar driving characteristics, except a good bit peppier and it goes around corners with ease. The interior is a major improvement with soft materials and comfortable and well bolstered seats. It definitely feels like a car worth it's price.

Compared to my Fiesta ST that I traded in for it, it has a much much better fit and finish, much more comfortable, quicker off the line, and even though it's not as fast in a straight line, it feels light when cornering as opposed to the Fiesta, which felt like a pig. It even has a smoother ride quality.

Did a few more updates:

Switched out the shorty antenna for A stubby from Moss. Much better reception and matches the lines better.


Also got a Voodoo shift knob to match the bezel around the gate. At first I was worried because it's quite a bit lighter than the stock knob, but in hand it feels excellent and the throws are now shorter.
