Holy crap....just checked mine. It was pretty far out. Grabbed it, and got a dribble as I pushed it on. Maybe this is why my clutch has been weird a couple times since May. Glad this thread got started.
They've already begun the marketing for ordering vs. inventory. Just watched an ad on Youtube encouraging people who can't find their ideal Ford, to order it and be given some sort of "priority".
Gonna be weird seeing all those big empty lots.
Unfortunately, Texas requires one, so the dealership where I got the convertible drilled the front bumper. Those holes are now plugged. Colorado didn't drill the front bumper of my V6 and it's not going to get grilled. No front plates, not going to worry about it until I have to. Been cruising...
I think that's yet to be seen. Both transmissions bolted to identical GTs, which one will get down the 1/4 quickest? My money goes to the A10, despite the Tremec's shift speed. The A10 is a proven transmission. Not sure the Tremec' been in service long enough to say it's bulletproof.
She's pretty much done, with the exception of the OEM fog lights I want to install. With the Unleashed tune, it's more like the car it should have been from the factory. I'm particularly happy with the grille. Glad I didn't trade her in.
Most things have a 'residue', 'coating', etc. on them when stuff is assembled. Since you're only smelling it after hard pulls, that suggests to me that something is burning off the inside, or the outside of your exhaust system. I'm betting it subsides soon, but if not, take it in.
Don't know if you've given it a once-over, and maybe this is a non-issue since they've had it on a lift for the oil change, but when I bought my 2002 Altima, I went looking for a strange smell and lifted the hood to find several small build-sheets still taped to various places in the engine...
Now, make sure they drill the front bumper for that license plate bracket! :crackup:
She's a beauty. Congrats!
Maybe I'm weird, but I think it would be cool for them to PDI it, take it out of transport mode, etc. and let you take it home with all the protective stuff in place.
