    The QC on the S550 has been terrible since day one. It's amazing stuff like this gets through.

    Lol my early '15 GT was shipped with all red door panel inserts instead of black with red stitching...

    Time to seal her up and wait for the value to go up and up....

    Looks like someone took a 4-cylinder eco-boost base car and put the R badging and aftermarket R wheels on it. A washer or dryer comes from the factory with a defect and it gets sold for less at a wholesale store. This dealership wants to make "extra" money off of the defect. Funny stuff....

    My track pack GT350 was shipped with a tech spoiler. Anyone want to buy my car for $100K?

    My R has the passenger seat cover on the driver seat :headbonk:

    Still need to contact Ford about that slip-up!

    There were ~54 base Rs built in 2016, not 5. I bought one of them and ordered a 2017 just like it. (Still UMH :doh:) Based on surveys, I expect the 17 production numbers to be similar for a base R.

    Is the missing front splitter (dealer, not factory installed) and the missing rear spoiler (should be "factory" installed by 3rd party) the "mis-build"? Not terribly relevant and easily corrected. Is the rear deck lid punched for the spoiler mounting holes?

    There are actually quite a few base 920A 16' Shadow Black R models. . not ONE. I've seen probably nearly 5-6 for sale over the last 2-3 months. Some no stripes, some black stripes, some white stripes.

    This year (17') I think were in 10-15 base cars built so far of nearly 300 total 17' R model chassis's.

    I think perhaps for 17' there will be less Base R models built than for 16'. . . we will see though.

    The uber rare 16' base triple yellow 16' R just sold out of Apple Ford in PA with 290 miles on the clock. Apparently a 1 of 1 as well, however ironically I was just sitting in this 16' R which is a Base 920A and also YELLOW produced for 16'

    Do you have a picture of that? I haven't really gone through my car looking for things like this - I will tomorrow, though! :) Could have a 1 of 1! :headbang:
