  First time MGM Owner... dream come true!

Howdy everyone,

Great forum, getting acclimated by reading some of the threads, and thought I would make my first post.

I bought my '03 MGM LS Ultimate Edition on June 15, 2017. My dad frequently had these as rentals back in the day, and I've been wanting one since. I named her "Eleanor" - like Eleanor Rigby.

I bought mine for $4800 with 83k. Low mileage considering the year. The guy selling it was hesitant to sell, but had to because he was moving. I test drove a few before settling on this one.

Been driving it for about two months now, and I love it - driving it everyday is as exciting as it was the first time I drove it.

I don't know what my plans are as far as mods and aftermarket parts go... seems like these cars don't really *need* much. I am on the fence about a dual exhaust... for such a nice V8 engine, it's awfully quiet. A little start up growl would make things that much better.

I'll read some of the previous threads to get a better idea, but does anyone have any recommendations for dual exhaust brands? I hear MagnaFlow and Borla are good, but I would like to hear from long-time Panther owners.

Thanks!

Hello, my name is Mike from Peoria, AZ. I am new to this board and new with owning a Grand Marquis. In fact, I have only put 40 miles on my car since I inherited it 15 months ago. While I was driving the car in my neighborhood, I rear ended a car and damaged the front bumper cover. Since it needs to be repaired, will a MM front bumper cover, and headlights a direct replacement on my GM? Its a 2004 GM with 65k miles, brownish paint, and tan leather interior. It runs perfect. I'm trying to learn how to post it here. I will wait until the new bumper cover is installed

Its not my daily driver, Its not fast, and my kids are fighting about who is NOT getting it when I pass away. Haha. But, I am keeping it forever. I'm hoping to do some upgrades on the car and pique some interest from the kids and open their eyes to something different. It would make a good father, sons project and see what I see.

I'm a newbie to this site and I'm sure there are hundreds of links on this site that can answer my questions that I'm about to ask. Since the size of this website is overwhelming with knowledge, I'm hoping some members can refer me to certain posts so navigating through this beast of a site that's a wealth of knowledge wont take forever.

Its been a real pleasure to post a thread here and I'm looking forward to read your past threads. Mike

Named him Frank, see if you can guess the reference Wink Anywho, loving the car, especially after having the column recall done on it. Glad to meet yall and to finally be a member of the Panther Community!

I got a retired CHP 2011 P7B with 165k miles and 3k ildle hrs a few months ago. CHP either had an unlimited maintenance budget, or mine was pampered. Im kind of a ford guy I guess. Even shopping for something else lands me in another ford. 89 notch project. 87 Thunderbird TC. 90 GT 460 big block project. 05 F-150 that didnt like a spark plug. And now my 11 CVPI. No better time to start another project when I got so few unfinished. Ill share all my CVPI shade tree mishaps, and certified internet mechanic knowledge that I have. (if I can squeeze it in between adult web pages and gaming. My wife and rugrat cut into thoes a lot as it is.) Im a pretty good turd polisher. I just sold a $350 Scion xB project. (I miss it. Always wanted one) My big block fox build is here, but photobucket did its money grab thing. Anyways... hey.

Hey everyone. I'm John, and started driving the Crown Vic patrol cars as a rookie in Feb 1998. I've literally put tens and tens of thousands of miles on the squad cars over my career. As I close that chapter on my life and look at retiring and starting a second career, I wanted to get a clean Crown Vic or Grand Marquis to drive into my retirement.

I picked up a VERY clean, one owner 2003 Light Tundra Grand Marquis GS this week with 123,000 miles. The original owners were elderly, and took care of this car! Garaged, equipped with new Michelins, so clean you could eat off the dash! Paint is perfect! Carfax shows no accidents.

The plans are to put dual exhaust, 17" mustang wheels, and tint the windows. After reading some posts, it looks like I should take the stainless wheel arch covers off before I move to Virginia next spring to prevent rust issues. Eventually, I'd like to put thicker front and rear sway bars.
