    Remember how I mentioned that I'd like to be able to mod the suspension? That's because i'd actually like to increase the spring rate a bit. IMO it's still a bit too soft. Then again, I'd happily DD a GT350R or Focus RS.

    Ride quality is subjective. I think it's perfectly fine. Others may not. It's all about what suits you.

    Thanks. What this car lacked from the Bullitt could be made up in the aftermarket.

    There's tons of those out there and they all vary depending on the camera gear used.

    I daily mine and no complaints on the ride quality even with the 30 series sidewall. Switching to r888r's once the cup 2's are toast. Going with 325 in the rear. Its overkill for the daily commute but no regrets on the purchase it's a real fun vehicle.

    as @Shifty Powers said, yes i DD mine. its an amazing DD. i did swap out the SC2s for 4S tires. 325s in the back because #meats. the magneride is great because of how quick it can switch between modes. its actually smoother than my 08 infiniti g35x sedan was when i traded it in.

    still needed a few things suspension wise to keep the rear planted but not absolutely necessary. it's an amazing out of the box performer.

    in comparison to the bullitt...if you want a fancy badge and color get the bullitt. you want performance, get a pp2.

    So I just tried to build one on Ford's site with the PPL2 and a black painted roof (gets black badges), and it wouldn't let you do it.

    yeah there isn't much you can do appearance option wise with the PP2. i really wanted to do the carbon package but they won't let you.

    As far as mods, i've done the Steeda beginner stop the hop kit, jacking rails, shifter bracket, BG trans fluid, and i have sway bar end links to install. not much else performance wise. no engine stuff other than a mishimoto coolant tank and upr catch can because of the DDing it and keeping the warranty till it runs out. But I did a bunch of looks things. RTR grilles and side splitters, carbon fiber GT350R spoiler, tint, etc.

    I love this color. Nice write up on the car. Made me appreciate the S550's more. Just haven't grown on me THAT much yet. But I like this.... a lot.

    Seriously, I might like them more than the factory wheels on my car. Thats saying a lot because I REALLY love my 11-12 SVT Performance Pack wheels.

    Twister, Dark Highland, Oxford, and Kona are all extremely nice as well. I think a GT in Dark Highland Green would be an absolute dream daily.
