Well its 5 months old and I did a really good wash with car soap with wax, then i used mothers clay bar kit, then washed again with same soap, then i used McGuires carnuba wax and buffed for a while...took a good 4 hours just to do exterior

Then there was of course rim polishing and i used the green environment tire shine, it is really clean and dosen't seem to wear out the tire color at all. I want rims but i have a tire and rim warranty =|

Re: deserves a good wash

cancel that wheel warranty, and spend the money you spent on the warranty on a whole new set of wheels

You are correct. I was going to pull the trigger on a 12 but they didn't offer it in the sterling grey. And the 20 minutes or so it took them to find one in the 11 I saw the one I have now in performance white.

Re: deserves a good wash

Malonjao...save your money and do it your self for only $15 and some supplies. You'll feel better about it...trust me. Just did a customers 2010 Black GT vert brakes in my color green yesterday...he was very happy with it, and his next step is green roush 'hockey stripes' from front fender to rear and green treatment to the spoiler, as well as a green grille pony..

---------- Post added at 11:42 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:35 AM ----------

um ,....just double checked my 2012 brochure. Sterling Grey was available, and check my 2 buddies in NC...the each bought 2013 MCA editions in that color...with saddle interior (was really jealous about that)...sorry that it wasnt avail in canada...that really sucks

---------- Post added at 11:43 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:42 AM ----------

oops sorry...they bought 2012 editions....type too fast somedays. I was going to get one same color but wanted to wait and see what they might offer for 2013...glad I did!

My brochure said this as well but they ended up saying it was 11 only. I guess I was impatient and really wanted a stang. (6 months looking does that to you)
