New Mustang GT ordered 2016 UK spec

Evening folks, Matt here from the UK. I've recently placed an order for my 2nd ever ford, my first was my very first car. A 2001 Focus rocking a TDCi 90ps engine.

I've been into my German cars since, most recently in a 2015 S3 hatch, but the mustang has to be the first car in a long time that I've properly got excited about from seeing online. I've ordered the following spec for my 2016 delivery:

Ruby red
Ceramic leather
Performance pack
Heated & vent seats
Rear parking sensors
Shaker pro audio

The first Ponys arrived in the UK on Friday and there was an identical car delivered to my dealer so I went down to have a look. Now the long wait until September next year, but I've already made my list of mods:

Magnaflow Competition Catback
Steeda springs tbc
Full tints all round
Roush gear knob
Steering wheel re-wrapped in soft Nappa leather

Look forward to enjoying the forum!

Those euro lights trip me out!

Congrats on the order. That is a looooooooong wait. You deserve a ton of credit for making that dive into a painful wait. Haha. You have the right idea to start ordering mods now though!

I like the euros on the 550's more than the Reds. Just not a big fan of big solid red tails. Will always love 13-14 taillights the most though. 👍🏻

Congrats on the purchase!

Definitely, need those tail lights as an option over here. They look awesome. Watched Supercars of London drive one and those tail lights were the best part.


Pick your poison.

Congrats!!
That is awesome.
-Maybe you should go into business of purchasing those Euro clear taillights and selling them stateside to help pay for your mods! Ha!!
-I've run into a couple of the 5.0's with the CORSA Extreme catback and it was a sweet sounding system. That competition catback is nice too.
Plenty of YouTube examples to listen to. Spintech catback sounded great too.
-Anyway, I am happy for you. Have fun!
Cheers!!

I saw a video of those lights in action. Of the three bars the inner two are red and the outer one is orange for the turn indicator. Maybe orange/amber is a requirement for turn indicators in the UK? Anyway, it appears that they've lost the Mustang-unique sequential action in the transformation.

Talking

Here is a video of what looks like your car, minus the Euro steeringwheel and taillights.
Thought it may put a smile on your face.

And again, congratulations on getting such a beautiful car!!
