    I'm located in the Quad Cities and have the same issue. I'm looking for a local shop with experience working on late model Mustangs. I hoping to find something better than a general tire and brake shop.

    Hey NickD tell your friend to check his web site for typos. Would hate him to not get someone's business based on that. I am on the technology business, and can tell you that it actually happens! I think I have seen the 15 orange around Waukee.

    Nice! I was about to pull the trigger on a set of wheels and some blizzaks for a winter set up but now I'm debating buying a Jeep to drive in winter. No way to driving it with those summer Pirelli Zero's!

    Lol...I put on my winter package (got some wheels from a 2012 gt California and Bridgestone blizzak's lm-32; still not sure if I'll be driving it through winter. Although I was able to get 19's, I still had to use a 1/4" spacer from maximum motorsports (ordered from www.lmr.com) to clear the brakes. 20151104_130800-1024x576.jpg 20150531_182758-1024x576.jpg

    That's funny guys because I was planning to put some Blizzaks on but ended up just getting a JK to drive when weather's not cooperating. I was about to pull the trigger on tires so I'm glad I didn't. I've always been into Jeeps. Anyways, this is my second JK. Now have the third stall in the garage full with a dormant (during bad weather) Mustang.

    Best of both worlds IMO, really happy with my current set up. mustang1.jpg mustang2.jpg phpz1tWZcPM.jpg

    very nice jeep! I saw you in the mustang about a month ago going down 235 after work. Do you work downtown?

    when I had a mustang, I always had a daily driver of some sort. Winters can be pretty nasty and I didn't want to risk wrecking the car or getting it all torn up from the brine and sand they put down.

    I'm pretty sure I saw you driving on riverside a couple months ago. I'm a student in Iowa City with a Magnetic '16 GT with the Corsa Extreme. If you don't see you'll for sure hear me.

    Magnetic 15 GTPP in Des Moines. We have a group of us that met on SVTP that get together regularly in the summer, whether it is going to Karl Performance for Cars n Coffee once a month, or a once-a-year cruise to Council Bluffs to meet up with some guys from Omaha. Facebook group for the cruise: https://www.facebook.com/groups/2014MustangCruise/

    Running a CAI and catback atm, saving up for some heftier mods but haven't decided what yet. Leaning toward a Procharger. Probably some LT's.

    Karl Performance has a dyno setup, and I'm hoping they'll let me do a remote tune there.
