The Mach 1 I ordered from Zach at Granger is scheduled for production the week of August 9th. I'm going to drive it back to SOCAL. Got an email from Granger today asking if I wanted any window tinting, PPF, ceramic coating, ect.., once it arrives. Any of you out there that have ordered from Zach have any experience with these services? What about the overall buying experience? Ordering it was a breeze and Zach was a pleasure to work with. Anyone else that has a Mach 1 or Mustang have any recommendations on prepping before the drive? I know I've got to be a little careful on the RPM's and burnish the brakes. What about protecting the paint and glass. Other thoughts?

Thanks in advance.

Congrats on the Mach1 in advance . Mine is getting built on the 12th of August so im expecting both our cars to land at the same time .

As for the PPF and ceramic . Jay at granger generally deals with these things. I went and met him personally and bugged him for 20-30 min and he was nice and answered all my questions.

They have a shop where they get their cars sent for PPF and jay told me its was S&C motors here .
My buddy recently got his supra get ppf and ceramic on the hood from them and they did a good job .


I am considering choosing between swirlfreedetail.com and S&C to get the work done on my car

Things to watch for:
  • NO DEALER PREP! Exceptions: inspection for dents, etc and make sure car runs.
  • Obtain window sticker
  • Mach 1 Owners Kit
  • Tow hook under tire inflation kit
  • Nothing drilled in front bumper (such as a license plate bracket)
  • No dealer badging
  • Track Attack invitation

The tow hook will not be under the tire inflation kit where it is supposed to be. They are including it in the owners kit which will be mailed to you.

i had the first mach 1 ordered through granger.......took delivery may 6th i think? as far as the experience it was amazing. best car buying experience i've ever had. i've already told my wife she can pick any car she wants for the next purchase as long as its offered through granger motors lol. you have nothing to worry about with your car being delivered to zach. if you don't get PPF applied before the drive home definitely do track tape or even blue painters tape! something to protect it until you get home. i didn't bother with burnishing the brakes. they work fine and make no noise. really if you have any concerns reach out to zach or anyone else there and they will take care of you. i can assure you its a different operation than anything i've experienced before. you're in good hands.

Has anyone had issues with Granger washing your new car? Or did you only let them rinse it? I know it's recommended to not let the dealer touch the car (beyond a rinse), but curious if Granger takes better care during the cleaning/inspection process.

Thanks for all the pointers. I'll be employing a lot of them. Can't wait to hear it has arrived.
