Hi Folks, 

 

All I can say is it's been a long wait . . .  a very long wait. Back in March 2021 I put a deposit on a new car .  . well I picked it up this afternoon 😎 What a drive, what a noise. . . what a car!!!. As you can prob tell I am rather chuffed! 

 

Who needs an EV when you get a 5.0 V8 with 480BHP. . . . driving should be an event, an experience!

 

I only have a few pics as its dark, and the weather is crap. More pics coming when the weather cheers up a bit.

Its a Mustang Mach 1 Premium with .....

  • Appearance Package (Fighter Jet Grey with Orange Brembo's)
  • 7000A Equipment Package
  • Performance Package 
  • Mach 1 Elite Package
  • Optional Recaro Leather Seats
  • Manual with the Tremec Gearbox 

 

Because I piggly backed on an existing order unfortunately I was too late to add the handling pack which I wanted.No matter how much I emailed ford they would not add it . . . bar stewards 😡

 

I have some mods in mind so will share more when I add them. 

 

That's all for now, Peace out!

Really like that colour/livery, seats look superb as well. Sure you will enjoy it, i bet you were torn between that and a nissan leaf though. Tough decisions in life.

It’s the only way to go :teeth:

 

very nice car Doogy.  As I’m well aware, not the fastest toy out the box but a lovely place to be and I can only imagine what nice roads this’ll see in the spring - autumn in Canada.

 

precisely what I’ve said all along re the Mustang with regards to ‘driving should be an event and an experience’, nearly six years in with mine and and it still is, even on a cold damp winters night after a long late shift.  There were many detractors back in 2016.

 

Mach1 is a big improvement by all accounts (I’ve not driven one), and I had a wee look at a cancelled order the other day, £57k, I’d imagine yours would be that but in dollars you lucky man!

 

Jealous of the Tremac, but my old Chinese gearbox is still happily trundling along :thumbs:

 

Have fun :)

I don't think I will be using it as a snowplough

That tyre on the floor is a 325/30/R19 to go on my new rims. got some Project 6GR Tens (19x10 and 19x11),TBH I am a little worried they will look too wide, but that's what was recommended for a flush looking fit. The fronts are 285/35/R19 ..... I guess we will see on Thursday Morning.

 

Other mods . ..  obligatory gas hood struts, catch cans, I also have the handling pack spoiler (GT500) and the front splitter. Depending how the wheels look I may also get it lowered an inch .... we'll see.

Thanks, yeah we have some great roads winding through the mountains, however I need to wait for the snow to melt and the pot holes to be filled before I can enjoy them .

Blue sky's today so took the opportunity to take a few pic at this little spot 1/2 mile down the road ........

Couldn't be happier with this car, only done 250km but it's an awesome machine, very comfy, handling is sharp and the noise . . . OMG :bose: Quiet mode is just that, normal it pretty throaty, sport and race are insane and that's me not being allowed over 4k RPM for the first 1k km, can't wait to give it full beans.

 

We'll see how the new wheel fitting goes on Thursday . . . I think I will keep the ones on it as winter wheels so millrun on them for a few months more.  Have some time off this week so I may ceramic coat it before it gets any dirtier.

  • DoogyRev changed the title to DoogyRev - 2021 Mustang Mach 1

Loving the car and the backdrop!
Many years ago I asked you to show me a picture of your silver 350 with wheel spacers which started a horrendously expensive journey for me which I have thoroughly enjoyed!

I have a V8 itch to scratch at some point.

I will just leave this here. . . .  :bose:

 

cold start in normal mode then at the 40 sec mark I switched to race (you can hear the exhaust valve click) Also that is only at 3k RPM. I need to go somewhere quiet to make it not quiet 🤣

New rims all ready to go on, unfortunately the car is back at the garage due to a ACM issue, its been back twice already but I told them to keep it until its fixed so save them having to repeatedly keep taking the dash apart..... I don't mind since the weather is still "wintery" as you would expect in winter; so not really wanting to drive on summer at this time of year 🤣

 

These are Project 6GR Ten's 19x10 & 19x11 with Pilot Super Sports 275/35/R19 & 305/35/R19. Unfortunately no PS4s in these sizes (well rear size). Just need to ceramic them now. The 325/30's that were recommended were just too wide and stuck out way too much.

....... and here is some wintery pics from my daily dog walk for you all to enjoy. Also the photo does not capture the ice cold arctic wind in which I could hardly stand up, whipping down the valley
