Re: Ford Mustang - Rear Bumper Issue

My car was delivered June 2016. I dont think my Mustang is poor quality, what else can you get with similar performance or price? Of course a Bentley is built better than a Mustang but it should be for the price difference. A failing part should be acknowledged by the dealer & fixed. It makes no...

If not sold consider taking the mods off, many will not consider a moded car.

Re: Tyres/Alloys

I have another set of standard alloys with Nokian WR A4 winter tyres fitted, they are excellent giving much more confidence in winter conditions. The tyre supplier used their own TPMS sensors reading the codes off the existing set & calibrating accordingly. Mark with corner when swapping over. I...

Re: Ford Mustang - Rear Bumper Issue

Untill it was brought to my attention I never noticed a problem, on mine the the gap is fractionally wider on the right than the left. Overall the build quality id good with even panel gaps even if not very tight.

Re: michelins vs pirelli

I have no complaints with the Pirellis but have never tried a Michelin shod car. With only 4k miles I'm not about to bin them. I'll be refitting my second wheel set soon with Nokian WR A4 winter tyres.

Re: Mustang interiors sixth gen onwards

I agree the hand brake is on the wrong side (at least it has one). I dont think the cup holders would be usable with a manual even from LH seat. It matters not to me never having used such a device. One thing bugs me is the high beam warning which is often hidden by tacho needle, I thinks it quite i...

Re: Detailed Order Process (UK - S550)

I've just had a look at the Window Sticker on Research Maniacs & it does not completely tally. I dont have Sirius radio (US only) nor Sync 3 only Sync 2. Where is the universal garage door opener to be found, on the key, if so not mine? The car does not have hood vents ( not european spec) , nor...

Re: Sat Nav

If you are happy with the car that's great. You can get a Garmin or Tomtom with better functions & lifetime updates for under 1/4 of the cost of the factory system.

Re: Sat Nav

If its a UK model & has the Shaker sound its sat nav enabled as they were an option together. A nav SD card should get it working. Get one of ebay , not £250 from Ford. They are upto version 6. A bit late now but the seller should have sorted it for you if it was sold as custom pack.

Re: S550 Aftermarket Security

I am not keen on keyless entry as it just makes your car easier to steal. I certainly would not pay extra or specify this "convenience". At home I keep my keys in a tin to block the key signal that thieves may try to grab with a signal booster. I have a Stoplock Pro additional steering loc...

Re: Vertically challenged, door mirror issue?

On my test drive I did not notice any problem. On collecting my car I I found I could only just get the near side mirror so I could see the side of the car. I asked the dealer to adjust it but they said they could do nothing as the mirror glass mounts directly to the adjusting motor. I suppose you c...

Re: Front bumper removal guide S550

Thanks for the written guide. CJ Pony Parts do a video guide to fitting a illuminated grill emblem which involves removing the bumper. Possibly not convienient to play in garage during the job but Harleys guide could be printed out. http://www.cjponyparts.com/ford-pony-emblem-front-grille-light-up-v...

Re: Engine break in?

Slowhand you can buy a spare wheel for the EB but not V8 presumably because of different sizes & rear would not fit the well. You may have another car with one!
