After three weeks waiting I finally get to pick it up today. It started having issues back in December where the electronic dash would go black. It lit back up fairly quickly and I thought that maybe it was a one-time issue the first time. But then it started happening again and three times in one week I decided to take it in back in March.

They tried reprogramming, no luck. So ordered a new cluster. After no word from them I stopped in and let the service manager know I was not happy with no one getting back to me despite promises stretching over 3 months and had a real question as to whether they had ever ordered it even. After that visit suddenly the part that was alleged to be on order but subject to back order showed up within 3 days.

They installed the new cluster - and the dash was triggering off on the new cluster. Finally they sent out a field engineer to look at it before trying another cluster. That was a week ago and today I was getting ready to go in again to express my displeasure at the delay "waiting to hear back from the engineer and we don't know how to contact him" response. Instead they called me and said that they tried a new cluster and all is working now.

So almost 4 months after the initial attempt to fix it, they finally have it fixed, allegedly. We'll see.

I did check on the recall for this issue, but my car was not within the recall period of installation.

I finished tinting the remainder of my lights/reflectors... the tail-lights didn't go so well, the angle where the light goes back out towards the top would not adhere properly, ended up tearing the vinyl trying to get all of the bubbles out.

So I tore that off and ordered some smoked plastic covers, lol

I'll post some more pics once the covers are installed :)

Careful with these. They look great! I love mine. I've been pulled over twice by two different cops saying it's too dark. Neither time was I speeding or making noise. Legit low-key and I still got WOOP WOOPED.

Time will tell I guess... Like the rest of the tint, all is easily removed.

Picked up the GT after PPF install. First 1/3 of hood and fenders, mirrors, grill, bumper, lights. The passenger mirror piece lifted a bit,...but they'll make it right

New shoes. Got 27k out of the OE Pirellis. Also ditched the single-use OE lug nuts for some solid ones. Discount Tire was crowded like a nightclub, but they busted it out in just under an hour.

Got the wheel spacers on finally. 275/35/19 fronts 295/35/19 rears. The rear is super close but it doesn’t hit thankfully lol.. it makes the car look amazing with the Eibach lowering springs.

Great stance! However, if those are the performance pack wheels that came from factory 9 inch fronts and 9. 5 inch wide wheels on the back, 285 is the max on a 9.5 wheel.... from what I've been told. I wouldn't push it too much. Be safe.

Discount tire will only install tires rated for the wheels you have. The 295 is rated for a 9.5” as you can see it it’s specs.. 👍🏼

Their main vinyl installer came in and took one look at the job and went "Nope" and walked out. I guess the vinyl from @BigWormGraphix isn't 3M or (can't remember) so they only get one crack at installing something about "if it doesn't go on just right it's trashed".

They had to call their more experienced (and more costly) installer who came in and took a look and said he "could do it but it would take time".

I can do Big Worm dual stripes myself except for the hood. The spherical shape gets me every time. I pay a pro just for that pair.

While I believe anyone can learn to do anything (youtube has helped me develop adequate landlord repair skills LOL) I firmly believe that when it comes to my baby I'd rather hire the people who know EXACTLY what they are doing. I want the guy that walks in and says "I got this" and not the guy who walks in and says "I think I can do this".

I figured since they were doing my Ceramic AND PPF, and they stated they can do Vinyl, I would try them out. We will see what the end result is. I'll either by carrying their card around in my car for those Mustang meets or I won't. Ya know?
