I just put those armrest pockets on my stang and so far, am liking them. Mine fit great and fit down flush. They also had some stick-on foam material all the way around them that keep them very snug and secure.

Time will tell if they become garbage bins. I got mainly to keep phone in due to lack of any pocket in center console compared to the Edge I traded in for the stang, big downsize in storage room.

It's a mid-life crisis thing.:wink:

Started the pp2 up today in the garage. Still only 3 thousand miles. In hibernation mode for the winter. Any suggestions on any additional winter storage ideas?

Stabilize the fuel, fresh oil, full tank, put a tender on it, set tire pressure to 50psi and LET IT SIT...... Worst thing to do is to start it and let it sit and idle.

I think 'rain' is the problem. Water gets inside these and starts shorting out.
so now I have induced paranoia .... I pulled em out and wrapped the join with self vulcanizing rubber tape. Should prevent water ingress .... now I can sleep at night :computerrage:

Good feedback though ... up'd the chances of survival :)

Sorry about that @nustang. Haha! It's my nature to point out potential failure modes like that.
I think I'll buy a set. I am on the fence between the 2 LED strip version or the brighter JDMtoy single strip version.
I know it's hard to quantify but how bright are the 2 LED strips compared to the rear taillights? Or how bright are they compared to the original lamp?

No worries, glad for the feedback to up my game !

well the OEM lights approx the middle 1/3 of the assy is lit.
The ones I bought have smoked lens, and are about the same brightness as the bulb was. They look crisp when close enough to see the 2 lines, and 'normal' from a distance, but lit the whole length of the assy, so are more visible.
I suspect the clear or red lens are brighter.
As for comparison to rears (parking/tail mode) not as bright - but complement the appearance. Not so dim they look 'off'. I think one of the pics show both together, and the tails are kinda bloomed out exposure wise cause brighter. IMO markers should be low key as they standout just being lit.
I have a grey car, lots of black accents - so smoked were my goto.

Thanks for the input. I think I'll pull the trigger on these. They're not a huge investment if they fail. But I will make sure that they will remain waterproof like you did. My car only gets wet when I wash it.
Going smoked too because one day... smoked tail lights.

As title suggests, this thread will be for 2015 Mustang owners to post pics what they worked on today, show off what they have done to their car recently, etc. Share and it might inspire some ideas for others to do on their Mustangs too.

I'll be getting a tint first thing in the morning and perhaps a car wash, will post pictures shortly!

So, what did you do to your 2015 Mustang today?
I wrapped my exhaust tips with CF vinyl.

I installed a black SR shift knob to replace my red one. It was a good install with the help of my dad. Much better. The alcantara steering wheel trim is holding up nicely, too.
