  1. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    Wife really wants the spoiler on it, so probably sooner rather than later. Kinda want to get all the basic stuff done before summer to help keep the car nice for many years... PPF, ceramic coat, spoiler, jacking rails, probably also need to apply something to the cloth seats for stain...
  2. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    I'm surprised no one has commented about it being a spoiler delete car (Black Accent includes a flush spoiler). Dumb me, I didn't know that all the Ford spoilers use the same holes, so I thought I should get a trunk w/o holes in order to put the spoiler I want. Well, made it harder for myself...
  3. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    I'll get one for you later today :) Edit: Here's a zoom-in on one of the pics I have, but I'll still take a true close-up later.
  4. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    You'd better be careful who you vote for for congress/president, then. But the regimes of the past 60 years have done nothing but limit/take away things from the car community, starting with emissions requirements in the late 60's, which have ramped up annually ever since and have also added...
  5. Why did you buy an automatic? (and why I ordered a 6spd)

    There'll be a day in the not so distant future when we'll all lament and remember fondly the days of the crackling Coyote motors that are all over the streets right now. I feel the same about the old 86-93 foxbody 5.0 sound from my high school days. I could hear those cars from blocks away and...
  6. Steeda H-Pipe or AM H-pipe

    Appreciated!! I'm heading over to the page to order the H-pipe now.
  7. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    Yup, getting price quotes now for both, but need to figure out how/when to put on a hood stripe (that's the wife's request), e.g. before ceramic? Before PPF? I can only see the metal flake in direct sunlight. Otherwise it looks to my eyes like regular Grabber Blue. I really think they just...
  8. Steeda H-Pipe or AM H-pipe

    What about giving 10% to public school teachers? We are on the front lines. Need an H-pipe for my newly acquired 2022.
  9. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    There is metallic flake in it, but it's only visible in bright direct sunlight. I was worried it'd be too metallic, but it's not. Looks good, but also unique to 2022 models!
  10. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    Not that I'm aware of/noticed yet.... Hoping no differences, because if there are it'll be a weird oddball year, since 2022 is the last of the S550's.
  11. 2022 Grabber Blue 6spd GT got here early.

    Ordered 11/24/21 -- built 1/10/22 -- at dealership 1/21/22 -- in my driveway 1/22/22.... Might or might not be the first 2022 Grabber Blue Metallic built? Is there a way to find out production numbers that are this specific? Doesn't really matter, just curious. Anyway, the car is here. We...
  12. Your opinion on personalized license plates...

    True about remembering the plate number, but no way my car will be confused with another Mustang. It's Grabber Blue. Most of those I see are black or grey or white.
  13. Your opinion on personalized license plates...

    XLR8 was a rollercoaster at Six Flags Astroworld :) First one (or one of the?) to be a "hanging" coaster.
  14. Not a fair comparison at all. CVT Civic vs. Mustang GT

    I haven't seen a GR86 in the flesh yet, either. Originally I was going to order/buy one of those actually until my wife cleared me to get a Mustang. But I'm still torn, because the 86 would be a great around town car, ton of fun, redline all day long and not worry about smashing into a tree...
  15. Not a fair comparison at all. CVT Civic vs. Mustang GT

    I had a 2013 and then a 2014 Civic Si and it was a BLAST to drive. 6-speed manual 2.4L DOHC naturally aspirated revvy motor. Just over 200hp. You could redline it all day long and not have to drive like a suicidal maniac. This is also why the Toyota GR86/Subaru BR-Z are so popular and highly...
  16. Your opinion on personalized license plates...

    That's really close to what I was able to find available and think I was like.. ohh... yeah, NO.
  17. Your opinion on personalized license plates...

    Considering a personalized plate for my incoming 2022... it'll be Grabber Blue, GT, 6spd. Wife wants to call it "Cookie Monster"... couldn't think of anything with "COOKIE" that wasn't already taken in Texas and anything abbreviated as CK or COOK or KOOK, etc. could be misconstrued, haha. I'd...
  18. So, steppin’ out?

    At least the GT350 damage seemed to be mostly suspension. Hopefully.
  19. So, steppin’ out?

    The IRS on these cars makes them a lot less likely to do something unexpected.... I drove back to back an S197 GT and an S550 and the 197 felt freaking dangerous. The back likes to get out and somewhat without notice. I worried about my wife driving it, so the S197 fell off the list of...
  20. What's changing on '22?

    Well, we can forgive you for being misguided by your weird version of English :P Hehe. I'd be interested in the etymology of some of those terms. The American ones make more sense to me. I mean, it's not a wing. You aren't gonna go fly with it. It's not a bonnett, that's something you wear...
