A "noisy" exhaust will be much loader on start up, or even part throttle acceleration. I can hear my neighbors 1970 Mach 1 start up, 100m down the road and when he drives by at part throttle. Barely hear most of my other neighbors cars. Bi-modal exhaust makes total sense, if you have close, or fussy neighbors.

A "good" exhaust note, is a highly subjective matter.

After having sold my Race Red 2017 GT at the beginning of the year, I was contemplating getting a 2018.

I'm not completely sold on the front end of the 2018, and I'm expecting that there'll be a price increase, and as with the last model there'll be no discounting initially. Not to mention that I probably wouldn't see the car till late 2018/early 2019.

I found a new 2017 GT in Grabber Blue at a great price, so I bit the bullet.

I'm going to be back in the saddle again in the next week or so. Glad to be back with you all!

You sold a 17GT in early 17? Wow. Also, what's a great price for a new GT now?

I had it from Sep-Feb. Long story, but had a change in circumstances so decided to sell it. Got a good price for it, then just after I'd sold, realised I didn't need to sell. Oh well. Lived with that decision for a while with the view to getting a 2018. The one I've now ordered I got for $57K, less than what I sold my previous one for. I'm a little better than break even.

Ok. So it was a 16 then. Grabber blue is a nice choice over Race red. Race red looks to orange to me in the sun. Only looks good in the shade. Subjective, of course.

No it was an MY17, Sync 3 etc.

I love the Grabber. With the black roof it looks great to me. That colour wasn't available when I ordered my first car, and isn't available now as they just produced it in 2017, and before that I understand it was offered first in 1969 and then again in 2000. There won't be a lot of them on the road. I'v only seen one to date.

In your original post, you said 2017GT. So i understood it to be purchased 2017. Not a MY17, built and purchased 2016. But who cares. Your back on the horse.

Fair enough. Yes, was manufactured in June 2016. It's always confusing when comparing model year and build year. I always refer to model year as that describes the features. i.e. half of build year 2016 came with Sync 2

Very happy to be back on the horse. Now the fun begins customising!

I installed the shifter. Just take your time and nothing will break.also the tiny screws are a bugger and easy to drop down the gap so use a magnetic screw driver

^^^ That is so nice. Were the gauges a big job and was it DIY or someone did it for you?

Cheers
