  1. Average S550 monthly payment?

    It’s a great mobility perspective to pay cash and avoid being tied down! That helped me in my 20’s keep chasing opportunities with my wife. We went from 1 job flipping burgers to 2 fully employed adults with no debt and maxing retirement contributions annually within 4 years. Each time one of us...
  2. Average S550 monthly payment?

    Another (minority) perspective is that if your housing is $4k/month (rent or mortgage) the $1k car payment seems minor. I went through this adjustment when I moved from Michigan to California in my 20’s. Cost of living is rising across the US and our perspective lags. If you could see localized...
  3. Wth is up with insurance rates?

    Yep, MI is usually the most expensive state to insure in. I pay $700/6 months for broadened collision no fault but mine’s an ecoboost. There are other at fault states but not as costly for some reason.
  4. Alignment issue?

    I’m curious to see your alignment. After the BMR kit and dowels I took mine in and the front was out of spec, not the rear. I think it was cross camber, but might have been cross caster. Neither of which were impacted by my work on the rear IRS if I understand correctly. For anyone else...
  5. Outrunning tires?

    Yeah, I’m thinking I’ll try new tires before diving into a staggered setup. Until then I’ll be conscious about how much I’ve let the tires warm up.
  6. Outrunning tires?

    What got me to post was when my back end snapped around at 20 mph with under 50% throttle input. I held it through the corner but wasn’t ready for that. They were cold and had caught some water in the road, but that’s the first time I’d experienced that violent of a traction event in this car...
  7. Outrunning tires?

    Ok, I came from michelins primacy’s on a BRZ and found the Corsa’s originally to be super grippy. It was a very pronounced falloff over the last 2 weeks but they may have been warmer when I I was throwing the car around the first few months.
  8. Outrunning tires?

    Yes, I have the Corsa’s. Would the drop off in grip be that pronounced? Temps have only dropped into the 60’s/70’s here. I’d understand if it were in the 40’s.
  9. Outrunning tires?

    Anyone got tips on how to tell if you’ve just worn out your rear tires? My back end is snapping out a lot lately. I’m not sure if my turbo is overpowering my rear tires. I don’t want to swap worn tires to my front and develop understeer. I can buy a staggered setup if others have experienced...
  10. 2020+ hpp tune question

    I’m running the Cobb Stage 2 91 octane temporarily until I learn the Cobb a bit better, then I plan to go PDTuning. I started trying to build data using 0-60, but found that eats tires, lol.
  11. dealer drilled holes for front plate

    As a heads up, even a non-drilled bumper has divots in it. I’m from a 1 plate state and Granger delivered without anything on the front. But my first car wash I thought I had a rock chip. Then when I got it fully clean (lots of bugs from driving it to visit family), I realized it comes from the...
  12. Random climate control turns on.

    My seat cooler remembers the last setting from when I turned off. I’m assuming the heater elements do that too, but there is probably a logic check that the outdoor temp is below 40F to turn on automatically at start up. How reliable that sensor is may be questionable though. Were yours off last...
  13. ERUPTION GREEN S550 MUSTANG Thread

    I had a coworker stop traffic when she saw me driving. I was in the left turn lane and she was supposed to go straight but stopped instead! She’d been admiring it in the parking lot and didn’t realize I was the owner/operator. I did fail to put the front bumper back on correctly during my...
  14. Ford Financing Question

    I think Ford Credit program codes from date of order are honored just like incentives. So a clueless finance office might benefit from your having the PGM number for the offer, just like if you had the incentive PGM. As for credit score discrepancies brought up, there are different credit...
  15. MT82 Known Gremlins & Fixes

    To be fair, my ‘22 locked out of gears under high load when new. I didn’t really get on it until after 3k miles. Crossmember insert and shifter bushing replacement seems to have fixed it with negligible NVH.
  16. Sales tax when buying out of state; up front vs rolling into loan?

    I think it depends on the vehicle. There’s no 1 size fits all answer. If it is a new vehicle and generic, I think you hit the nail on the head. But a used vehicle like OP’s is 10%, 5% or less. Current market dynamics may not be normal though. A low depreciation vehicle will be less in both...
  17. Mach 1 Steering Noise…

    My bad, thought it was just electric pump but still fluid driven. I see now I was wrong. We only did troubleshooting to identify it was steering and not suspension related for him.
  18. Mach 1 Steering Noise…

    Is it pump noise? I’d put the front in the air to rule out tire noise if you want to chase this down. Sometimes a simple extra bleed of the power steering system will sort it out if it is. My buddy’s V6 did this in 1 direction only. Edit: nothing to bleed in the S550 platform. I thought it was...
  19. Team Granger

    Granger is located in a good spot to get some miles on same-day before hopping on any freeways. I was able to put over 100 on before making my way North to Wisconsin. Varied speed limits, lack of traffic allowed me to move up and down gears as I got to know mine (non-Mach-1). So in 1 day I flew...
  20. Sales tax when buying out of state; up front vs rolling into loan?

    In my experience this depends on the dealer. If they plan to charge your THEIR state taxes you can roll it into the loan and most states will allow you to deduct that payment from taxes owed when you re-title it. So if the dealer state is at or below your home state’s tax rate this would work...
