Thought I would post a few photos of my new baby...be happy to hear what you guys think.

She is Tuxedo Black with the charcoal leather interior, and has the following in addition to the Titanium trim package

- Moonroof with integrated homelink garage door opener
- 19" dark H-style alloys
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- BLIS - blind spot alert, active lane assist, cross traffic alert

I have an appointment to get the windows tinted tomorrow...which is about the only modification I plan on for now...although I do think she would look killer if she was lowered about an inch...lol

Took her for a photo shoot on Thanksgiving day...

This thing loves the twisty roads...almost too much...handling is stellar!

Love it! I still haven't seen one on the road around here yet.

Mine is the only one I have seen in the wild so far...found out there is a recall on them...something to do with the headlights. I think that has slowed the roll-out.

looks great. but would look much better without the front plate
Thanks! I agree that she would look better without the plate and mount, but we have a front plate requirement here in WA...not to mention that I had the car less than 24 hours when I took these photos. I've decided to keep the dealer ads in place until I get my plates...then we'll see.

ah man that sucks. one of the few things i like about my states traffic laws is they don't require a front plate

I am enjoying the car more and more each day as we get to know each other better.

I bet you're getting a lot of looks driving down the road. Anyone asked you what car that is yet?
Yeah...a couple of people. The best look I got was from a guy driving a new 2012 Fusion. We were going opposite directions and he stared at me until he was looking backwards...while he was moving...lol (I was a little bit afraid that he was gonna have an accident...)

Was actually talking to a neighbor of mine who is a Ford guy and he Knew it was a new car, but he was genuinely shocked (and impressed) when I said it was a Fusion...he is a truck guy and hasn't been paying much attention to the cars lately.

Have you noticed any difference in ride/road noise with the 19" wheels?
I'm not sure what "difference" I would have noticed since they are the only wheels/tires I have experienced on the car with the exception of a 5 minute test drive of a Fusion Ti with the 18's. What I have noticed is that the car drives extraordinarily well and handles like a dream. The car is exceptionally quiet at speed as well.

Very clean Fusion. I've only seen parked ones so far, and they have a really nice, mean stance.
