    Could not have said it better !!!!!!

    I know there are a lot of 2018 Fans out there, heck some of you are probably thinking of ordering one. I am not bashing your decision just pointing out some possible issues the 2018 could have. I know those articles are talking about direct injection without port injection, but the articles to point to some key facts:

    1. Direct injection fuel pumps operate at a higher PSI, fuel pump failure possible.
    2. If a direct injector fails it will be a costly repair bill.

    Granted I am sure Ford has tested these components extensively and I am sure
    it will never be a problem.
    All I am doing is pointing out possible issues with the new engine.
    Heck we don't know enough about the engine because Ford has not released any detail specs to date. So all this is just pure speculation at this point - No need to get angry. :cool:

    Ahhhh!!! Waiting for the order banks to open is so damn painful (especially as we don't have any idea or rumour of when that may happen in the UK).

    Wasn't very sure about that wing when I first saw it. Actually really like it after watching this vid.

    Just noticed when watching the vid again, the new bodywork material has been let out the bag... it's jelly!!!

    Some major weight reduction is defo on the cards!

    I agree Paul. This color reminds me of the School Bus Yellow that was on the Boss.

    [MENTION=7398]Todd15Fastback[/MENTION] you decide on color yet and options? I'm going base, Oxford white, GTPP 6MT with black forged wheels.

    [MENTION=16274]mvfjet[/MENTION] color, not yet. Leaning towards Ingot, Black or White. That orange fury is very intriguing to me. Not sure I can rock that color though...:D:lol:

    I'm trying to figure out what wheels I want as that will also dictate what color I get.

    My last S550 was fully loaded. My '18 will be the same. Premium GTPP, MagneRide, active exhaust, Recaro seats, digital dash, 10sp auto, etc.

    I can't wait to see the order guide come out to see how all of these options are packaged.

    [MENTION=15536]MrWolf[/MENTION] the fact that it's April means we can potentially be 8-12 weeks away from ordering!!!!!!!!!

    Pretty much how I'd order it....although I'd want stock seats for the heating/cooling :)

    Think I'd go Magnetic with a black roof. Of course, if Grabber Blue was still an option that would be my first choice..........but if Azure Blue was to be offered on a '19MY Mach 1........ :love:

    :ford:

    Check my build thread. It's totaled. Got airborne, hit a tree and flipped over landing on the roof. My car went crazy sideways as I was accelerating and shifted into 2nd about 45mph.

    That's one of those colors that would look like a million bucks with some black stripes and maybe some side stripes to break up the orange.

    The system has already been proven on vehicles from other manufacturers and people with DI vehicles that have added port injection. I don't understand why people think things like DI and E85 are the devil.

    :eek::eyebulge: Dude, horrible. I almost cried when I saw the pics. So glad to hear that you're ok though. Speedy recovery my friend. And btw, I hope you've spoken with an attorney about the paint on the road.

    Weirdly mine wasn't all that different (except I didn't get airborne or flipped).

    So now I too am awaiting a MY18. I guess there's always light at the end of the tunnel
