    Guess it is time to get my build thread going.

    My car was ordered on 5/21/2014 and was built on 11/24/2014. I ordered it through Jeff Greenly @Yocum Ford in Lansdale, PA. This was the best new car buying experience of my life, bar none. Jeff is the ultimate Mustang and Ford performance car nut you will ever find. Sticker price was $45,885. I got x-plan pricing for $42,965.27. At the time of pickup, I received $2250 in rebates. That is a total of $5170 off MSRP. Not bad for a brand new generation car :D.

    The plan for my car will be to keep it NA and improve the stock PP handling by investing in better suspension components, lighter wheels and wider tires.

    Nice, I think brushed finished will be The Bomb with the Ingot.

    Anyone know the weight of those wheels? Who sells them? Looks like most of their 20 x 10 wheels come in at 32-33lbs but i cannot find these.

    Thanks! Hardy Family Ford in Dallas, GA is who I am going to use. One of their tech's has a new '15 GT PP that he has done a lot of work on already.
    Thanks bud! I am torn as I am unsure of how the brushed will look on this style wheel. Waiting for them to post up their samples:D.

    I am very excited to get the Steeda stuff on as well. I am going to get it installed before the wheels and hopefully the next couple of weeks.
    Me too. That is my preference, just need to see samples. Hurry up Carlos and Paul:lol::lol:
    Thanks, Will. I will keep you all in mind.
    Me too! Can't wait:cheers:
    Carlos @ MMR who is on the board is handling these new wheels with Paul from Need4SpeedMotors. Both are on the forum here. Send them a PM and they can give you more info. They should have samples ready to post in another 2 weeks or less. That should mean pricing and final weights will be available as well. Once the samples are done, they are supposed to start taking pre-orders. Figure on close to 2-3 months before the first batch of wheels to arrive.

    They are supposed to be light weight. Hopefully under 24lbs for the 19's. The 20's will be a bit heavier but still a good bit lighter than the factory 19" PP wheels that weigh like you said above.

    Just bought the Steeda Billet Front and Rear Sway Bar Mounts. Figured why not since the new bars are going in. Might as well do it the right way!

    This is at my parent's house in Charlottesville, VA. About 400 miles on the car with my protective "painters tape" frontend cover:D. Worked like a charm. Had zero chips, etc all the way back to Atlanta and 1000 miles of driving in 2 days:cheers: image.jpg
