I have XPEL ceramic coating on mine, and the protective film, too.

I can recommend to get it ceramic coated! buff out the scratches, polish it with very fine compound and pad, and coat it!

I have an other car with piano black roof and pillars which I had same scratch issue since the piano paint is softer than a vegans feelings and after I got it coated it stays so clear! I'm gonna do that to my 2020 GT as soon as it arrives with both the decklid and the black roof
I've taken a picture of my B-pillar and the coating is half a year old - car is daily driver and gets washed once a week.. not a scratch in sight :)

Yeah they heat up to 30 in summer sometimes to 32 but 27 at 70 degrees cold is what I would try.

Dang. YES.. rev hang. How do you get rid of that on 2015-2017 models outside a custom tune? Drives me nuts. Haven't figured out a way to trick it yet, either.
Just double clutch. A quick double-clutch when skipping gears will make the rpm fall.

I don't get to drive it all winter, and winter here lasts from November to March/April
:(
I sympathize. I lived in Vermont for many years. I got sick of winter while I was still young and untied- moved to California at age 28. Now I not only drive it year round, and I actually choose to not drive it in the rain! It's a miracle.

If you stare at the rear deck-lid black panel it scratches.
Yeah- mine is ceramic coated, I am careful as heck around it- and it still seems to have some surface scratches

The stupid rev match on the manuals. Makes it impossible to skip gears
I skip gears, sometimes two, both upshifting and downshifting; rev match works perfect.

Edit: Not a 'worst thing,' and I generally don't like nannies anyway, but I was backing-up near to our plastic trash bins on pickup day, wanting to get as close as I could but the obstacle alert didn't sound! I presume the sensor is microwave, i.e. radar, maybe the trash cans had a stealth coating?

Fit of the body panels, for some reason Ford quality control or lack of at the factory let her leave like this ....Still deciding if I will let the dealership body shop adjust the door since it’s warranty, could cause more problems.

Mass production vehicle....this is to be expected. However the dealership can do an adjustment under warranty up to a certain mileage. I'm also not seeing much of an issue lol...but maybe I'm not as picky.

When I bought my 2018 Mustang GT PP1 at under 38k, I was disappointed in the panel fit, interior materials and the paint quality. Then I remember the price of my old rides and had to lighten up on Ford. Prior to my mustang my last three new cars were 2000 BMW 740 M sport at 90k+,2004 Audi A6 s line (I still have) at 45k, and lastly 2009 Caddy CTS-V at 75k. The Mustang is a great car for the price and the quality in my opinion of all the items noted above is perfect for the price we pay in todays $$$. Just look at the prices of my rides of the last 20 years and mark them up to today's $$$ if new and you can appreciate the value of the mustang.
