Ford didn't put their little blue oval emblem anywhere on the car. Nice. It's a Mustang, not a Ford. We all know who makes it, but I don't care if anyone else knows anything but the model.

I may have used the wrong term for the wheels, but mine are the ones that match the steering wheel, and they have the tribar pony logo in the center...

Wheel options:
V6 Deluxe - Ford logo
V6 Premium - Ford logo
GT Factory Base- Ford logo
GT Optional - Pony logo
GT Optional - Pony logo

So - bottom line - if you have the Pony logo, you've got upgraded wheels.

2006 GT Coupe Premium, Manual, Tungsten Grey, IUP, Active Anti-Theft, Wheel Locks
Mods: Sequential Taillights, 8" Shorty Antenna, FORD on hood, Hurst shifter with t-handle, Steeda UDP

Well that settles that...at least my wheels are an upgrade from the ones on the F-150 I traded in

Well if you want the tribar pony center caps, I have an extra brand new set I need to get rid of.

Anyway, the feature I did not know about before I bought the car (but absolutely love) is the auto up/down of BOTH passenger and driver windows. A lot of new cars have auto down, but auto up makes life just so much easier when you are parking the car

some safety feature gets kinda annoying. lets say the driver has their seat belt on but the passenger doesnt. The "fasten seatbelt" sign flashes and a warning bell goes on when you go over 15 mph. That misleads me to tihnk something is wrong with my engine or mechanical related. But at least ford cares for the passengers too.

Have to remember not to leave your bag on the passenger seat, though, or the weight sensor may trigger. Not that I do anyway. Nothing goes on that leather.

Trying to figure out if there is a adjustment for the fog lights, seems that they need to go down a notch. They are a little to bright.
