Slow build out of 2018 GT Premium Convert A10 into a quick drop top mountain road runner
did a test drive of it at carmax while our 330ci convert was in the shop. Bought it same day =) Basically as my wifes 50th birthday gift. I do get to drive it occasionally.

Wife named her Thelma as it gets her in trouble =)

Tranny started slipping day 35 - no go in drive when cold. Took it back to CarMax. It was sent to Ford dealer and received new Torque converter, pump, input shaft and gaskets at 47.5k. Along with new rotors and rebuilt calipers.

Mod 1 - installed Audi windscreen. Love it ! Purchased locally in the storage bag for $120 - Completed

Mod 2 - PP1 wheels with square tires 275/40/19 with spacers for front - Thanks Luc! -Completed

Mod 3 PP1 struts and shocks, sway bar - front and rear Thanks Luc!

Mod 4 BMR cradle centering sleeves and lock outs, K Brace, Vertical Links - Poly

The PP1 wheels - rear squared - 275/40/19 on all 4 corners looks so good!

Very tasteful mods. If you don't mind me asking, what's the purpose of the wind screen? Storage on the back seat?

13.06 113mph ! Woo-hoo first time.on track with car and first time on track in over 20 years.
Only.2 runs 1 in sport mode and one drag one. Drag mode was much better. Didn't power brake enough.

BMR shipped my parts so hopefully a week or so for parts to get here.

It was a blast driving back from Reno on Hwy 88 today I had a couple of spots where you could open up the car a little bit. It felt great to just sweep through the corners. Wondering how good it will feel once the PP1 struts, swaybars , differential lock outs, links all on the car. No time as finishing up my house remodel
