    Finally – my Mustang GT coupe has arrived!

    The car is currently at my dealership and I’m making the 50 mile trip from London to Hastings on Friday to collect it. I believe this is the first black roof, white body, black wheel car in the UK (maybe the only one?).

    Many thanks to my dealer Stuart from Birchwood Ford in Hastings for sending the attached sneak preview photo through of the car on the loader.

    I will update this thread with more photos once I have collected the car!

    Very excited now!

    Sorry for being slow in updating this thread. I picked the car up on Friday (thanks again - Stuart and Karen) with 15.6 miles on the clock and have been enjoying it since.

    You've all read a hundred reviews so I won't go too in-depth but I am very happy and I'm sure you will all be too. Extremely powerful and surprisingly refined. Turns heads everywhere I go. Could do with being a bit louder, but with that said I'm breaking her in gently so not sure what happens above 3.5k RPM.

    The interior is much better than I expected (and better than a pre-production car I sat in 6 months ago) and the car has a load of features I somehow didn't ever realise it would have! e.g. electrically adjustable seats, automatic headlights etc!

    In terms of quality control, the car is in good condition with the exception of a small paint flaw where the back bumper meets the bodywork on the sides of the car (on the bumper edge). All the models I saw had similar issues (although not as bad). Took delivery anyway with the promise that Ford would resolve this.

    Here are some pictures - apparently my car resulted in 3 more with the same spec being ordered :):

    Looks good, cant wait to see some proper pics. I've opted for Ingot with black roof & wheels.

    What time are you collecting it. Would love to get a pic with mine (CO with black roof and wheels). I am travelling to Chelmford and back form Hastings

    I'd be checking for scratches on that side before handing over your hard earned money - still nice though :)

    Hi Steve - sorry I didn't get in touch. Was a hectic day so I didn't know exactly when I would be there and ended up collecting late afternoon with the light fading fast.

    Some photos added above!

    Damn!

    Almost makes me wish I'd gone for a black roof now. Almost ;)

    Definitely needs some corner blackouts now though. Check out the difference between the second and third pics in your second post. Those amber bits need to go!

    Looks stunning mate , if you don't mind me asking where do you spec the black roof as I can't find it on the configurator ?

    Thanks mate.

    Ford haven't updated the online configurator and there are two options you can choose with your dealer that it doesn't mention: 1. Black painted roof and 2. Double fading stripes (vinyl).

    No worries. Some other time perhaps. I do think our cars would look good together

    Sah-weet!! ...... white with black roof looks so good. My final two colour choices were black or white. The toss of a coin meant I went with black, but to be honest every car that has had photos posted looks fantastic. Really starting to have second thoughts about selling mine now :headbonk:

    Thank you very much guys - appreciate the positive feedback.

    [MENTION=14834]John577[/MENTION] you can always get the roof section done in black vinyl for a change - so at least you have the flexibility :)

    Will put some more pictures up this coming weekend!
