Fortunately, I'm only 5' 11", but the car can be a bit snug height-wise. It's still a decent sized car length and width, but being a coupe it's tight.
I'll be doing an air-to-air S/C next year on it, my last car was a tuned 2016 GTI and I really miss the way a boosted car delivers power.
BTW, my Titan is a 2007 Big Tow 4x4, we have owned it over 10 years. The darned best vehicle I have ever owned, and I am not a "truck guy" at all, but I drive trucks for a living, and there's a good reason I didn't buy a "Big 3" truck! My Titan has never had an issue that required warranty or repair (just maintenance) and I have towed 10K pounds (it's max) many times, with the abuse I have done to it and the how little it requires of me, the Titan has really endeared itself to me.

Awesome. Yeah I am not planning on getting rid of my XD until it falls apart. I tend to gravitate towards Japanese vehicles, and my last couple have lasted many hundreds of thousands of miles. I haven't had any issues with this truck, and it seems to perform a little better than previously thought as far as fuel economy. I am not a huge fan of the new regulations regarding diesel emissions, but the associated costs are fairly low, and are outweighed by the cheaper overall cost of operation over the 5.6 gasser. I did get a 2016 XD PRO gasser when they first came out, and it turned out to be a lemon. It took awhile, but we were able to work it out with Nissan and get it swapped to this 2018. Anticipating smooth sailing moving forward, as has been our experience with our other Nissans.

Well, guys I just got a 2016 Ford Taurus Limited. It's bigger to my old one, so it will take getting used to. But I like the features like heated and cooled seats, adaptive cruise, etc. I still have to set my phone to pair with the bluetooth and figure out some things. And it's safer too because my old one had two air bags, but this has curtain, side etc. Plus backup camera and sensors.

But I noticed the tail lamps, have LEDs, plus the ambient lights inside are color changing LEDs. Yet the map lights are incandescent bulbs though like on my old car. Which I think my old car was all incandescent except for the backlights on the buttons.

Also I test drove the Ford Fusion, which I really liked too, and it was a pretty orange. But overall I like how the Taurus rode compared to Fusion. But the Fusion looked like all the map lights were LED which looked cooler than on the Taurus.  Huh?

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.
