    Some of you older ones will remember me :wink:, I sold my 2016 red GT 2 years ago and have regretted it since so on Wednesday I flew to Glasgow (actually Edinburgh long story :curse:) picked up my new Mustang and drove it home via ferry to Northern Ireland. Being an August 2018 car it must be one of the last pre-facelifted cars. Anyway loving the car so far and hopefully I keep it longer than the last one. yellow mustang.png

    Hi, great choice :like: although I am biased, I've got a Triple Yellow Shadow too. Are there many 'Stang's in NI ? You'll have some exciting roads and stunning scenery to explore. Welcome back.

    There are a few about, although quite a rare sight on the roads. I actually did see a lightning blue Mustang a few days before I got mine.

    Funny, the wheels were the deciding factor for me buying a Shadow Edition. Ironically I think they're the bog standard wheels from the US options list!

    I think my envy comes from knowing how much easier they would be to clean :cwl:

    Funny how the "standard" things we don't get are so sought after; red lights, plain "GT" deck lid for me. Vice versa for across the pond too...keep thinking of doing a swap with someone in the USA for the oem taillights.

    Yes I do really like the shadow edition wheels as well. Does anybody know when the first facelifted mustangs were made as mine was registered on the 29th August 2018 so is probably one of the last pre-facelift cars.

    They stopped production around August 2017, they made shed loads to dump on the U.K. market, took years to get rid on them :cwl: i

    The brilliant 0% finance offer and some good discounts by dealers in March 18 cleared them out very quick :wink:

    I spoke to someone at Ford and they said they are having difficulty shifting the 18+ models mainly due to the extra costs, especially when you're not getting much more.

    Interest rates on a PCP are far to high, salesman I spoke to said there are loads of them in stock.

    Keeping the PCPers away should help keep the Mustang exclusive! Otherwise it'll become as common as a BMW 3 series

    @NornIron91 lovely car! My last car was a liquid yellow Clio RS and I came close to buying the triple yellow mustang but I got won over by the magnetic when I saw it in person!

    Picked mine up in Wigan and brought it back to Belfast a few months ago, better selection than over here!

    The last 2017 cars were all pre registered around February time this year on 68 plates, mine was built end of August 2017 and not registered till December 2018 so had technically had its 1st birthday before even hitting the roads!

    I’ve got my fingers crossed for big discounts on the 19 models and 0% to come into play again so I can swap into one of those :like:

    Did Ford remove the feature to open both windows by holding down the unlock button on the keyfob or am I just stupid and can't get it to work, it definitely worked on my 2016 GT.
