Hot Rod Lincoln

So the wife wanted to sell our silverado for a car she could drive to work. I'm not a ford guy but she found an 02 Lincoln LS with a v8, true dual straight pipes. This car is fully loaded and rides awesome! We traded our truck and now we have this. I DD my lifted Burban but I find myself grabbing the keys to the LS every time we leave the house. 252hp + 276 ft/lb turn the traction control off and this car rips! What have I done?

I had a lincoln LS it was a nice car with the little v8. It was comfortable, every option I could ever want, a nice alpine stereo from the factory, and quick (not fast).

I only had it for a few months because
1. It had 5% tint all around and stock chrome wheels I liked it but I was pulled over multiple times because it "matched a suspicious stolen vehicle" and every time the cop wanted to look for drugs (21 year old kid in a nigged out lincoln)
2. I replaced the coil packs and didn't want to be a part of repairing anything in the engine bay if anything went bad.

I get what you mean. When I get in it I feel like I should be playing r&b or something.

Lincoln LS's are horrible pieces of crap that are expensive to repair and next to impossible to work on. Run while you can.
