All S550 that have a 5.0 all have holes in the fender that I know of . Ecoboost did not.
I think Bullits (sp?), Mach 1s and recent California Specials have the Eco fenders.

I didn't do anything to my Mustang today, but I decided that confession would be cleansing.

I love this forum and seeing all of the great things that Mustang owners do with our cars to make them the way we like them. I pick up ideas here and there of things that I end up doing. That having been said:

I regularly us 87 octane gas;
I only use one bucket (with a grit guard) when I wash my car in the warm months;
I sometimes run my Mustang through a soft-cloth car wash with the "chassis bath" in the cold months to get the salt off of the chassis;
I like the look of my factory 20" wheels, despite their unnecessary weight;
I do not have ceramic on my finish, although I do use Turtle Wax's Ceramic Spray Coating several times a year and I think that my paint looks good;
I drive my Mustang as my daily driver every day, regardless of the weather;
I have black wheels for my winter tires, but now wish that I had gotten some with a silver finish.

I trust that some of you may decide that I am a barbarian for the way that I treat my Mustang, but I love driving Mustang GTs as much as any of us, and I get that joy every day, year 'round.

Thanks.
I'm right there with you. Daily my Bullitt, just hit 27k miles last week in 18mos of ownership.
I do touchless automatic as I don't get around washing it often enough.
I did the paint film and ceramic, but am absolutely driving the hell out of this can.

I understand both points. But I love driving and having 480 ponies and sweet rumble at the control of my right foot is intoxicating.

Took my kids to the Caribbean Intl Expo. Last year was much better. No Mustangs except for the yellow Mach 1

y GT350.
That's awesome. How does it compare? I've been hesitant to do that because of over protection paranoia.

Yesterday went to an autocross sponsered by Jag club of central NY. I was 9 of 16 total cars. Times range from fast (Pantera built for this) 40.981, to slow of 53.134 (BMW i8). I was 48.421. Good time as I never saw this course before unlike half the other drivers. Jag uses SAME course over the entire USA.

Lol. You're basically me except for 2 things

I only run 93 because higher octane option generally have better detergent and stabilizer additives. FWIW, I run 93 in my lawn mover, motorcycle, chainsaw, etc... They all start easily in the spring and I've never used Stabil or anything like it.

Also, I can't get behind 20s or really even 19s. Too much worrying about bending a rim every time you hit a pothole or road plate. In the northeast, that happens way too often and the extra sidewall on an 18 is much appreciated.

Other than that... I've even driven on a dirt road and tried not to worry about the paint.
