    Jewel Red tint coat TBSS Intro & Build

    Bored at work, thought I'd get around to posting the newish whip.

    low mile TBSS with all the goodies (black leather with suede inserts is money) except that rear entertainment system. I dont sit back there..so i dont care. Havent had it long, mod list is short:
    Tint, cat back (no resonator), K&N intake, 3m clear sideskirt protection. I hear a lot of complaints about gas mileage. I think its 90% driver here, I can cruise in the 20+ range, and a tune would help further improve that. So far, I like it. Cruises real nice and gets up to speed ok.

    That thing probably seems like a Caddy compared to the Mountaineer.
    I love the color.

    I get 50/50 love hate. It does neat things in different lighting, and its easier to keep clean than black. Rides nicer than the mountaineer, thats about it haha.

    So I've heard, not looking forward to any issues that come up with that.
