Greetings from Dallas.

This is my first post, so please excuse any etiquette errors.

I just bought a 2013 Matador Red/Ecru car with navigation and premium. It replaces my beloved 2002 red IS 300 SportCross. I have less than 100 miles on the CT, and haven't yet had my "tech lesson" on the bells and whistles.

I miss the power the IS 300 had, but will enjoy the more advanced features of the CT.

This forum has been a great help in deciding whether to buy the CT. Thank you for that, and for letting me join the group.

Welcome Bob! I worked with a Bob Kraft here in Florida...you're not from Florida are you???

So what plans do you have for upgrades? :)

Born and raised in Texas Bill. No kin in Florida.

No plans for upgrades at this point. I have to figure out the basics first. I'm an old guy, so I'm not that interested in exterior style modifications or upgraded audio. I do wish it had a warning buzzer to tell me when I'm looking at the screen too long, and not at the road!

Do you have upgrade recommendations?

the most important upgrade I did (pertaining to safety) was installing a rear view mirror with the backup screen in it and the backup camera in the back. The last thing I want to do is back into something or heaven forbid back over a child.
every other mod was just to put my own style in the car. wheels, coilovers, and illuminated door sills are on the list to do next.

Thanks Bill. I have the navigation package, which includes a backup camera. My wife's car has one, and I got spoiled by it. I would never consider getting a car without one now. Great safety feature.

totally agree about the backup camera. Now you know why it's being mandated on all new vehicles.
