Hey guys (and gals), just bought a 2016 Magnetic EB PP and just wanted to say hey from the Inland Empire area! Got the EB to replace my DD 2014 fully loaded Accord V6...I still think I'm going to regret it lol, but such is life. I wasn't NOT happy with the Accord, it checks off a lot of boxes and I've been very happy with the daily utility of the V6. I just can't leave well enough alone because I'm a car guy at heart haha. (Also if anyone is interested in a clean 2014 Accord EX-L V6 Navi wih 75k miles, it's been 100% problem-free and it's for sale lol)

With that being said, I just bought the car and it's in the shop immediately for the dreaded evap core leak...lol.

My other current "problem child" is a supercharged C5 Corvette. Should have it back within a couple months max and it's pushing a safe 500+ whp. I've gone way too far with modding that one and have several backed up projects to go haha. That will still give me something fun to look forward to on the weekends.

Anyways, I'll stop rambling, just wanted to introduce myself!

Jon

Thing about Magnetic is that it's never the same color twice. Get the right lightning and it can go from almost champagne to deep silver. Always fun to look at.

Haha thanks guys! I agree, it's grown on me quite a bit. I was hesitant to get it, especially without ever seeing it in person, because I had a 2006 A4 that was a similar color and it was one of the reasons I just ultimately didn't love the car. This color has a lot of flake in it though and it will look especially nice/clean with some polished/hyper silver wheels. As soon as they're available again, I'll have them on!

I have a black C5 Corvette and the car this Mustang replaced was black as well, so I do usually have a "type" lol. I am glad to only have one black car now though...you're right...lol

Little update: got the car back after 2.5 months at the dealer. New longblock purs like a kitten so far. Mounted the wheels/tires I had waiting as well as a CM components rear seat delete for my daily road dog (60 lb boxer), just need to install the BMR SP080s with 18 GT struts this weekend and she'll be good to go for a while :clap:
