Awesome.. I asked around and made several phone call about trying to get my mits in a 15GT350... Obviously I wasn't very successful but still very happy with what I've got...
Congrats, your 350 is beautiful! Love the classic colors!

I just picked up my 350 in Detroit on Thursday and drove it back to Ohio.

Congrats. Same color I chosed. How did they doo the black roof. Is it a satin or gloss finish? I'm assuming its painted vs rapped vinyl.

Beautiful gloss finish, definitely painted not wrapped.

Awesome car and color combination.

I watched the video and saw your pictures. What special thing did Ford do for the 2015?

I see the F0052, I was wondering why Ford put that extra 0 on the placard knowing there would never be XXXX of the F (2015). Or did they just start form F0001 - F0137 and move into G0138 - GXXXX? Does anyone know if Ford is sequencing both model years together?

Thanks! Honestly I'm not sure what, if anything, is different about the 2015. Nothing I received seemed out of the ordinary, aside from the car cover which I guess is included free for the 15's? They didn't have any 2016s to compare against and the dealership didn't mention anything unique about the 2015s.

Hey, it's Aaron, the big guy that was talking to you at C&C before you left. Car looks great, and was great talking to you!
Hey Aaron, thanks. it was great talking to you too!

Can you post close up pics of different angles of the engine bay? More specifically what is used to cover the lines on the sides of the intake manifold I know there is a badge of some sort on there. Like is the voodoo hand built?
Updated the first post with your pictures. Enjoy

Awesome! Beautiful car! Do you come to Richmond at all??? If you take that here let me know.
I'm never really up that way.

Hey finally got one...... . Seat of the pants around town how does it feel compared to your 13 ?
Night and day. I've loved Mustangs all my life and have driven a few. When I bought my 13 I thought "this feels way better than my 08". The shifting was smoother the steering felt tighter, the seats were more comfortable, the 5.0 felt stronger and revved higher.

You'll sit lower in the GT350, the seats will hold you in like your mother used to. You can see more of the road than you can in the 13, the hood on the GT350 is rounded out more and at a different angle. Everything is easy to see, nothing is shiny or reflecting or distracting to the driver. Driving the car normal feels and sounds awesome, you put it in sport mode and everything tightens up.

I need to put a few more miles on the car and get over the sticker price and beat the breaks off of it, I'm sure I'll have some more inputs after that.

Can i be the first one to buy your wheel take offs ? :)
Congrats
Not for sale :headbonk:

Congrats you lucky son of a gun :)

What material is wrapped around the shift knob? Looks like leather but can't really be sure from pics.

TY
Looks like leather, I posted a picture of it..

So which one of you lucky few guys with these in your garage is going to be the first to post a pic of a sub-4-second 0-60 time from your track apps?
