    I payed sticker for mine. I had to drive out into the Central Valley to avoid the 10K-15K mark-ups of the Bay Area.

    What a beautiful car! Love that color combination. Keep us updated on your impressions as you put more miles on.

    Thank you! I went back and forth between Ruby Red, Magnetic Gray, and Kona Blue. I'm extremely happy with the Kona and white stripe. The silver accent makes a difference when compared to the previous model years.

    She's got 220.5 miles on her and so far dads, kids, and other guys around my age love it.
    There is one issue with it, and that's the active exhaust not working. I heard a rattling of two metals together sound at 203.8 miles, and found that there's bracket with what look to be a controller. My guess is that it operates the active exhaust because I get an error message saying that it's not available.

    I plan on investigating where it goes and fix it if it doesn't involve electrical repairs. Exhaust_Controller.jpg 20190428_152900.jpg

    What a hassle! I wonder if it's the same type of (annoying and sometimes problematic) servo like used on my Focus RS? If yes, sometimes you can just unbolt it and re-align it and get it going again. 3 tiny bolts if I recall.

    And as the former owner of a Kona Blue Boss 302, I am obviously biased towards that color scheme! Love it!

    I went through this back in 14. My car was built in August but I didn't take delivery until October. Drove me nuts! I was worried it was damaged at the holding lot and went in for repairs. All was fine in the end.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. This was going on in 2013 for my 2014 model.

    Well, finally some positive news. My car has a steering wheel, has been cleared through final inspection, and is released for shipping!! Estimated time of delivery is between 05/25/2019 and 05/31/2019. The status on the vehicle visibility Report changed last night. The zone rep will hot tag the car for delivery once she gets a rail car number. Can't believe the car has escaped the storage lot and starting toward me!! At least now it's moving and not sitting day after day as it's done for the past 51 days!!

    Guess I spoke too soon. Car is still at FlatRock due to some "miscellaneous mechanical issues with the rail car system". Of course there is no further explanation from anyone connected with Ford as to when the car will start moving on the antiquated railroad system that is the F'd up system Ford uses to deliver the car to Maryland. One step forward, two back! What a ClusterFK!

    Hey 03reptile! Did you get your car yet?

    Read this tale of woe about a Mustang stored at Flat Rock!

    We were talking about the outside exposure issues...

    Second try and I think I might be done

    No. Have not received the car yet. As of today's VVR it is still at Flat Rock on a quality control hold!!! (Quality control, that's got to be an oxymoron!). My dealer and I are working on trying to work a DX (dealer exchange) with another dealer for a GT350 that they have on the floor. Will keep everyone posted.
    By the way, William Clay Ford Jr. is full of shit with his glittering generalities about his concern for customer satisfaction. And he's purported to be a big Mustang fan! LOL! This colossal production Fk-up with these GT350's has alienated a large number of valuable FMC customers. Especially me! I wrote a letter to James Hackett, FMC/CEO, on 05/23/2019. I had to write a letter because they provide no phone number in order to keep themselves insulated from the great un-washed customers that support the company. I have not received a response from him or any designee's, to date. That says volumes to me about their BS line of customer satisfaction. I think Ford is circling the drain.

    Well the dealer exchange worked out and I will be driving a new GT350 on Monday! It is an exact clone of my original order right down to the color! I am so glad to be released from Ford's inept delivery program and not having to wait any longer. The last we heard, a few days ago, was that my original car order would be shipped at the end of June...right! How many others have heard that hollow promise! I don't trust them any further than I could throw the Shelby! It's been a long four months but the wait will soon be over.

    That's great! Mine has been built and sitting for five weeks today - maybe I'll call my dealer Monday and see if they can work the same deal!
