Thank you!

No plans on tracking the car. Just some cruising and spirited driving.

According to the Carfax the battery was replaced not long ago already. I'll definitely put it on a tender!
original battery, not on a tender, and drive every few weeks, so by day 12-ish it does take a few extra seconds to start.. that said, I am looking to get a tender soon.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Can you guys tell me what mods would void the factory warranty?

I plan on getting an extended warranty.
my mods certainly won’t void a warranty but I do like/recommend; redline hood struts - like pilotgore said, passenger side air/oil separator after a lot of reading and figured cheap insurance, Diode Dynamics LED sidemarkers - looks way better than bulb, and Ford Performance air filter cuz it matches car color (and is washable). I am thinking about buying two Exhaust Valve Delete Simulator plugs so the car is always in sport mode. Oh! and don’t forget to get a really good personalized plate.

Well the car arrived today. It appears to have a lot rock chips than I was aware of....but pictures only show so much.

Can anyone tell me if I have aftermarket exhaust? I see it has band clamps and wouldn't think that's factory. I'll be getting it on the lift soon and changing the oil. I also need more of those push pins that hold down the battery cover.

And both spots under the spoiler are missing paint. Like it's rubbing. Is this common?

Otherwise, I really can't wait to drive it he heck out of it.

Looks like you have a cat delete or ???
The paint is not something I’ve seen or heard of. Wondering if some work was done and a heavy hand made the chips. Wing replacement?

Yeah no resonators. I believe the cats are in place. One guy on Facebook said his paint is also chipped in the same area. I'm not sure.

Congrats from a fellow Minnesotan, I'm completing the purchase process on a 2019 right now too. Can't wait!

Those chips under the wing are bad. It could lead to corrosion as it looks like it’s down to metal, and could expand out..especially if driven in Mn with sand and salt on the roads. At a minimum get some touch up paint and cover it up. However I’m guessing that it’s chipped under the wing as well and you can’t see it. Might want to get it all taken off and have the entire lid repainted.

Head slap! Meant resonator delete.
Congrats on your ‘19….The best year!
Hopefully Ford will fix the paint on their dime.

Mine similarly has rock chips. For me it meant I could spend the 5k a PPF costs on performance mods and drive it.

Mostly I'm just jelly of the clean ones, but w/e, having a 350 in the stable to enjoy feels good regardless.
