Another casualty. One day, Ford will give us a lovely Emerald Green and not reserve such colours for the Bullitt. Maybe.....

Yes, I think I might do the same. But then that means I will lose Deep Impact Blue colour option right?

And here's a colour chip of Lightning Blue. Looks significantly lighter that Deep Impact Blue :)

I'm a bit confused. Do today's orders get the choice of these new colours and a June build?

I ordered December and have a May build estimate. If I only need to wait another month I want grabber blue and sync 3

Have emailed the mustang email address and will wait for the reply but you guys may know more info.

Very interested to hear response. I can do without Sync 3 - it's Guard Green for me or I'm out! (Ok, maybe Magnetic)

I want sync 3 and grabber blue now. But I'm not going to cancel my order unless they can guarantee a June build.

I'm not sure when my existing order is locked beyond cancellation.

Ordered Mid December due April/may build.

Let us know what they say.

It appears UK orders are batched and then sent to the US. It also appears the next batch of UK builds seems to be June. We know (see below, regards US scheduling dates) that '17MY builds start 2nd June......therefore, you'd expect any UK builds will have to fit it with that. So, if June really is the next date for UK cars to be built, then they'll be '17MY cars with '17MY colors. But it would be good to get Ford to confirm that.

03/04/2016 - 2016MY Fleet Final Order Date
03/24/2016 - 2016MY Last Day to Spec Change
6/01/2016 - 2016MY Job Last Date
04/04/2016 - 2017MY Order Bank Open Date
04/14/2016 - 2017MY Scheduling Begins
06/02/2016 - 2017MY Job #1 Date

Apologies.....just double checked. Andy Barratt (Ford UK MD) indicated on another forum:

[QUOTE=Andy Barratt]
Current build month for new orders is May, and we are working on significantly shorterning delivery times from the plants
[/QUOTE]


In which case, they'll be '16MY cars with the current colours.

Ah yeah that's what I read.

So if I can push my car back a month I will get MY17. Do you think they will push the price up? I was in before the last 500 increase. I also have a optional colour which I will guess grabber blue will be.
If the order books aren't going to be open until April I think my order will be well and truly concrete so no chance in me changing. Hmmmm don't know what to do now.
