    I don't feel bad anymore... my 5 month old 2019 has way less scratches on the rear panel than a 2020 show car on stage:cwl:

    Well the price of GT500 base model is out for $67K. I like to know the price on the new EcoBoost and hoe close it is to Base GT.

    Did you just totally contradict yourself??

    You aren’t interested in the new 2.3 HiPo, but you’ve already gone to your Dealer to inquire for a pre-order??

    Did I read that wrong? LOL!

    No that’s normal wear ... believe it or not. The 2018-current rear panel SUCKS - even if the wind blows it gets scratched. That’s why Ford had to put out a TSB on it...



    seriously though:
    That Orange 2.3 HiPo being shown in this thread has no chassis number. So it’s very possible it’s an early aesthetics mule that they just pushed out to the show circuit so people can see it first hand. It almost appears as if they were test fitting the faux gas cap appliqué to that panel, because those scratches are really deep near the edges.

    Good gravy, I thought my 2015 scratched easily. I am religious about being the only one to close it because everyone else closes it by touching the black and it scratches like crazy. I always close it from the faux gas cap thing, no scratches. Also, I would be disappointed if I owned a 50th anniversary as they just cheapened it even more by reusing the wheels on this HiPo version. Love the wheels, but if you are going to charge more for a special edition, then those wheels should be exclusive to it.

    My European opinion:
    - The rear badge is nice on my '66. Doesn't fit on a modern car..
    - Front grill needs a pony in the middle... that's mustang since day 1
    - Would love a V8 and fully agree all mustang should but if you want to drive a new mustang in Belgium you need a tax friendly version. V8 is $15K extra to get it on the roads. 4cyl $ 700,- !!
    - Exhaust : I would remove the resonator. (As I did on my 2015)
    - hybrid might be a good choice for EU... Let's wait and see..

    There is a TSB? I tried to get mine warrantied and they told me no!

    I am getting the car ceramic coated as I type. I am going to have my guy video his process to remove the scratches and protecting it moving forward.

    Ppf xpel ultimate plus.

    It’s self healing and will look great.

    Shop charged me 75 bucks to remove emblem, do entire decklid and reinstall it all.

    Good news, the active exhaust on the EB doesn't have a resonator. Or at least, my 2019 doesn't.
