Congrats on your 5.0!
I wasn't keen with the looks of the 2010 - 2012 body style, however I do like the looks of the 2013/2014 body style. =)
Make sure to post some pics!

Sorry for poor quality iphone pics.

A few questions-

1. Who can tell me how to get the damn dealer emblem off?
2. Was the strut tower brace stock in 2014 or was that an extra goodie?
3. I also have the Track App function in the display... I was under impression that was only available on Track Pack cars???

I'll post some better pics after we get some proper model shots this weekend.

Well, you don't pull off the dealer lot until they take it off. Simple. I always make it clear to them up front that if they put a sticker on a) I'm driving off without buying it or 2) I expect compensation from them for advertising

Googone. Always works for me. Open the trunk so it stays vertical, and just work the edge of the sticker up a bit and let the goo gone seep in, wait a couple of minutes and pull up a little more. Repeat until you get the whole decal off.

I remember reading somewhere that using a blowdryer on a med high heat setting can soften the adhesive to accelerate the process and that some dental floss will cut through adhesive without ruining the paint. The googone method appeals to me and combining that with heat might work. All recommendations welcomed.

You can wrap fishing line round it and pull it. Then goo gone.


Looks amazing! I love the red it really stands out
The strut tower brace is standard on the 13/14
Jealous of the track apps!

Enjoy. I'd avoid roush axle backs, mine are a little loud and raspy. I'm looking into replacing them. Just a tip

Yeah I heard that in the vids. My question is were they loud enough to hear in the cabin with windows up and some music going? Just wondering if comparable size exhaust can be heard in the cabin. I can barely hear stock with any music whatsoever.

Very nice Mustang! Treat her well and she'll be kind in return.

Everyone gets burned with the dealer sticker once, lesson learned...

Best of luck with your new ride.

It's supprisingly quiet on the inside for how loud it is outside. They don't drone on the freeway. It sounds really good from the inside of the car.
These new mustangs are way more soundproof than the 05-09 ones.
You can hear it but you can drown it out with music if you want to
