  1. 22 S550 Tracking Thread

    You have price protection. Ford and the dealer will settle at the end of the month or quarter for the difference; it's a paperwork/financial process between the two of them.
  2. 2022 Official Mach 1 Order Tracking Thread

    VIN was gifted when the car was initially scheduled for production. I received one e-mail the day the order was placed, confirming the order/build. Months went by when I received a second e-mail, providing the scheduled date of production with a VIN. I've received two additional e-mails...
  3. 2022 Official Mach 1 Order Tracking Thread

    Some days I have no doubt it's going to be built. Others, it seems like a roll of the dice. I'd genuinely like to know the process of gathering and staging the bits, then scheduling. We've all seen several videos or shows of cars being built. I'd like to see something of the prep side. One...
  4. 2022 Official Mach 1 Order Tracking Thread

    Touch'e. All of June, July, August and some of September await. Still have hope. We'll see...:fingerscrossed: I'm grateful I don't really need the car. I can't begin to imagine what a small business owner needing an F150 or someone just surviving and their car fails is dealing with.
  5. 2022 Official Mach 1 Order Tracking Thread

    Received an e-mail last night. Production date slipped yet again, this time, to 06 June 22. :headbang: With a VIN assigned, I'm still confident it will eventually be built. I am curious as to... 1) the end production numbers for MY22 M1s, GT500s and Mustangs in-general 2) how many MY22...
  6. 22 S550 Tracking Thread

    I wouldn't be concerned. Several have commented same, that their car is "stuck" somewhere, sometimes for a few weeks. Afraid I can't say I've detected an average stuck time, just that it eventually clears and goes to the next stage. Transport and delivery by itself I'd give a solid month, that...
  7. 2022 Official Mach 1 Order Tracking Thread

    The day the order is placed, you should receive an e-mail notification that Ford has your order. When Ford schedules the car for production, with an expected build date, Ford will issue a VIN at that time and send you an update. Other postings throughout the forum will advertise when Ford is...
  8. 2022 Mustang 4% under invoice

    Agree with the above. Each state or even county could have their own rules, but it all kind of ends with the same result. When I was considering buying a car from a dealer in NV, CO DMV gave me two scenarios: 1) NV collects all sales taxes on behalf of CO and sends the money in a separate...
  9. I need new ceramic coating.

    In general, what I consider a professional-level coating, applied by a detailing-type shop, will last several years. The detailer I'll be using for some PPF work advised a complete car ceramic coating would take several days to apply and cure, last several years and cost around $3K...
  10. M1 jerking while breaking or revving up high

    Spit-balling... 1. Number of miles on the car? 2. Can you provide more details on the change in tires? Did you replace a worn out set, or, did the overall diameter of the tire change with a new size of tire? 3. Type of transmission involved? Is it an automatic? DCT? 4. Any...
  11. What's your Mach 1's nickname?

    Like many I come back to this post and review for updates. Every time I come across this I can't help but crack up laughing.
  12. 2019 Shelby GT350 1000R Twin Turbo Build | 980 whp

    Out of my price range, but I enjoy studying your work and craftsmanship. Well done Sirs. Well done. :clap:
  13. Photos from MCA National show California

    Nice pictures. Thanks for posting. Are those gas prices or lotto number picks?!
  14. Just going to leave this here....

    Goodness. I'm not sure which bothers me more: the color scheme, or the serious rear "poke". Always like to know what type of person drives such a thing. An interesting character, I'm sure. With all crypto currencies recently plummeting, I'm sensing an upcoming sale at a really good price...
  15. What's your Mach 1's nickname?

    Her proper given name will be "Skye". But her nickname will be "Villanelle", from the Jodie Comer character in Killing Eve.
  16. 2022 GT500 order thread

    Closing order banks on F150: check. I had to think about why take orders in July for MY23, but then I realized Ford might be spending the rest of 2022 not only finishing what they can, but warehousing parts, more than ever before, to prevent work stoppages when there are supply chain delays...
  17. Warranty

    With respect to the engine, computer systems, emission controls and exhaust, I would say yes. For the car in general, maybe. I feel it's going to depend on the area being considered for warranty, the dealer and your unique experience. Several threads/posts on this topic. Recommend perusing those...
  18. 22 S550 Tracking Thread

    Yes. There was a cutoff date of mid-April; all orders placed before mid-April received price protection.
  19. Carvana Collapsing

    Carvana got caught up in the stay-at-home, work-from-home period where everyone was ordering on-line and no one was going into stores. If you look at their financials, they've been losing money every year for at least the last four years. They took on a huge inventory, which they are now in the...
  20. Roof panel replacement?

    Can't speak to the details, but there are some things to consider (if you were not already aware). The panel is going to help maintain the structural integrity of the interior, in-case of rollover. The roof panel is also going to impact alignment of several other body parts. Special assembly...
