    Congratulations and how cool is that you still have both of your 2016 R's and possibly looking for another!

    What I like about this 2016 R model is the early chassis build, the rare color and of course being an old school guy I really like these R model delete cars.

    Are both GR227 and GR378 both Electronic Package cars or is one of them a Base R as I cannot tell enough from your pictures if you have a Base R?

    BTW, terrific to have an extra set of CR CF wheels!

    All I have is a new CR CF front wheel in a box and happy to at least have that.

    Both are electronics. Trying to be more like you Tomster. I don’t know what it is about these Mustangs. Never owned a Ford until the S550 GT350s came about. Can’t explain it other than the synergy created by combining all the individual special pieces. I need (I mean want) another...

    I remember the base R bug. I soon will be trading one of the Rs in towards a CFTP 500.

    The one thats going is not a base R.

    Great and understand why most enthusiasts want the Electronics Package in their cars..

    Having said that and after having owned 3 Base R's I suggest that you may really like the additional of a Base R to your stable of cars.

    GR107 ended up with a local fellow in Phoenix and he absolutely loves my old car with HR019 being purchased by a very close friend of mine and he can't say enough about it either after some spirited driving in the back roads of Pennsylvania in spite of all of the delete items on that car.

    I still own a 2018 Base R and really looking forward to my 4th R and it will be the first one to come with the AC and a radio but purposely stayed away from the Technology Package as I certainly don't need 12 speakers and a subwoofer in the trunk at my age but comprehend others that want that feature.

    Good luck with your search for a 3rd R.

    :)
