    19” Wheels and tyres £350

    For track, perhaps not so much, as most seem to feel the stock wheels are both too heavy and too narrow, which makes people regret it. I am pondering it a bit due to lack of choices in my price range, and me being so amateur on the track I'm sure the wheels could be square for all it matters...

    My Red Pony

    With a Mustang, it's possible to simply "go for a drive" too, you know? ;-) I've never done it with my previous cars, but with the Mustang, sometimes I just go for a drive.

    19” Wheels and tyres £350

    Hi, do these fit over the Brembo calipers? And is the TPMS included?

    Tried to get her in blue, but this breed only comes in white versions.

    Steering wheel options

    With my exquisite taste I obviously do not have to worry about some future owner's taste, but I do understand your concerns. Please update us when you get your new wheel, as I am interested too and I like the way they have laid out so many options and (presumably) allow me to use my own wheel...

    Steering wheel options

    I'd have some concern regarding what the quality of the underlying material/metal is when getting a new steering wheel from who-knows-where. I'm sure there are some safety specs the OEM wheels have to adhere to regarding e.g. what happens in a crash and whether they splinter into a handful of...

    recommendations for cheap extra set of wheels sold within EU?

    Any recommendations for a set of cheap/cheap-ish set of wheels that will clear the Brembos and are sold here in Europe? I'm looking to get a dedicated set of wheels I can use for the track, but my reason is economic, not performance (just an amateur starting out, but looks like I will be able...

    Setting MagneRide Independently

    Or removal of the seat back pocket from the driver's side. Man, how petty is that? The passenger side has the normal seat back pocket, but for 2020, some genius must have figured out they could remove it from the driver's side and save a cent or two. I'm envisioning the removal of one of the...

    Dome Map light swap question

    Mine too, but the case is so light that just a tiny amount of double-sided tape (e.g. 3M VHB) on each side has made it stick fine for the last half year.

    Lug Nuts Compatibility

    Thanks, that was some interesting reading. I'm not stupid enough to use my own "this should be fine" torque setting in lieu of one from the manufacturer just for fun, but in this case, there are two two manufacturers with conflicting recommendations (Mackin Industries for the lug nuts, and...

    Lug Nuts Compatibility

    Actually I did, but I did not get a reply. I'll try asking again.

    Lug Nuts Compatibility

    Are you sure about that? The answer I got from [email protected] when asking was: "Thank you for contacting us in regards to your inquiry on the MONSTER LUG NUTS in M14x1.50 We recommend that the Torque spec is 90 - 95 ft lbs. I understand the Mustang is 120+ but we recommend 90 ...

    Lug Nuts Compatibility

    Is that the torque your new lug nuts are specified for too? It's not necessarily the same torque as the OEMs. E.g., the Monster lug nuts are specified for a considerably lower torque setting.

    Odd experience on a mountain run.

    I'm saving your post to read up further on what the things you are saying mean at a later point. I've started tracking my car too (fourth trackday coming up in two weeks), to learn my car and how to drive it better, but I have not started reading or thinking about the things you mention yet, as...

    Setting MagneRide Independently

    I'd have to double-check to be sure, so apologies in advance if this is wrong, but I think you can do most, possibly all, suspension/exhaust combinations indirectly through the drive modes. Via the Mustang button on the steering wheel, enable the "show my mode" (or something like that) display...

    MT-82 Question 2019+

    You just gotta get used to taking a small break every time you disengage the clutch and plan to shift. Take a second or two to think about your place in the universe, what you'll have for breakfast tomorrow, or when's a good time to wash the car again. Why do we always have to hurry so much in...

    What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Installed the FP oil separator and ordered a syringe from ebay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/293669766778) to drain it, based on post by bjstang (https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/draining-the-fr-oil-air-separator.79694/post-1796846). A bit unsure if it's necessary or not, but most seem to...

    What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I don't think they looks nice with grabber blue. Looks like the wheels are doing their best to outshine an already very bright and shiny car. Those wheels look better with darker car colours IMO.

    Cam Cover Bolt Removal Issue - ?

    Struggled a bit with this myself today, until I put on a pair of needle-nose pliers exactly like they show in the PDF-file from Ford Performance. Then I could just just lift it straight out in a second, after pulling and wrenching with no luck for several minutes. Just a "FYI" for anyone else...

    MT-82 Question 2019+

    That this is correct is quite easy to see by performing a small experiment: Putter along at e.g. 3,000 rpm in second gear. Then shift to third and look at what happens to the rpm. Revert back to second gear at 3,000 rpm again, then shift to fourth gear and look at what happens to the rpm...
