They give you an idea on ship date when you order. I waited months before I finally ordered, because I didn't want to wait. It's a work of art when laid beside the competition.

Ordered mine last week on 28 August. Was told that I should be in current schedule. I was told to call back but did not. We should get ours around the same time. They told me two weeks at the time. I am concerned about the shift knobs. I like the MGW logo but also prefer the rally shift knob type (MGW one). I have not confirmed that they offer it in the color (candy red/black or dark gray) and gear arrangement that I want. I only see the GT500 shifters on the site. I have to call tomorrow.

One other thing that caught my interest - I have been reading that the weight of the shifter will also assist in it's ability to go into gear smoothly. In some cases a heavy knob is better. One of the leading shift knob companies are 'fussy'. They have this powder coded knob that looks amazing. But I want 'MGW' on it! Plus it cost about $100. Not sure if MGW offers heavy shifter... Will have to call.

I'm almost positive they will custom order you one the way you want it. Just call and ask for George.

And OP congrats on the purchase, you will absolutely love it.

Thanks B on B, I just saw your shifter in another thread - It is close to the way I want it.

I am sticking with the MGW shifter knob for now. I called and got a rally knob (black and white) thanks to the info that Black on Boss provided. They were not tracking my order so I had to do it over the phone. I am still good for Fridays receipt. You might want to call to move yours up if you can. I should have mine by Monday

That was not me. The was kids who were having summer fun. They did both doors - then they did everything but the front bumper and rocker panels 6 days later. Even my front and passenger side window was scratched. I had to get the whole car repainted and the front window replaced. Car was bought in June 12. The incidents occurred right at the year anniversary mark. Insurance paid over $7k.

The boys caused nearly $100K in damage throughout the neighborhood. The thing is, it is not a bad area.

I was very close to purchasing a Boss at the time that I bought this - Imagine if this would have happened to that.

Yes and No. One of the guys on the other block caught one of them the day before they came back and done it again. He had a shotgun to the guy's head. The other kids were walking away as if they had not done nothing. The police called the parents and released the one person. The next day they got him and me - they vandalized both of his cars this time to include a 2013 Durango. They went on to continue to vandalize our area for the next three weeks.

The police finally charged the one kid. The will not tell me who he is because he is a minor. I got the court notice and was told by the DA to report all of my expenses which include over $4K out of my own pocket. I had to get external cameras, a viper alarm with external motion sensors, and motion sensors and flood lights for the house.

And a few more guns....

Yea, I went back and forth with it but the Rally II struck my appeal the most - Even though I don't think I will ever have black rally stripes on my Stang.

I though about getting gray stripes to go along with my Brembo rims....but what if I change the rims? As a result I stuck with candy red and black.

Thanks very much. I am impressed how both variations of red candy match well together.

Got a shipment confirmation today (Sep 19th). I placed the order on Sep 6th. UPS says it will be here on the 23rd.

3 weeks is a good ballpark figure for anyone looking to order but was scared off by the waiting time.

I'm seriously contemplating getting a black one with orange stripes exactly like the one I already have lol. Any thoughts? I'm thinking reverse colors solid black with orange stripes would look good. Or should I do orange with black stripes?
