Default My 2010 Black 4.6L Mustang GT from Italy

HI everybody!!
Here's my stang, 2010 GT Premium, bought 2 years ago in Hyannis, MA
I live in northern Italy, 20 miles away from Aviano NATO base (many americans here) that's why american cars passion grew in me since i was a child, and it's also quite easy to get parts and service, which in Europe is not that simple, not to say impossible. But passion goes through this! And i tell you more, it's a family thing, my fathers owns a Escalade (you can see a bit of it in one photo).. i know i know, it's GM. He got better in it than in a Expedition.

The specs :

-GT PREMIUM
-Appearance package
-Park distance sensors (fundamental here, where you got only tiny stripes on the streets to put your ride, stucked between awful cans.. ehm.. cars right)
-GPL system (i know it's something horrible, but otherwise it's quite impossible to afford mileage with so high gas prices, today was 1.8€ for a liter, which means 2,30$ for 0,26gal.. yeah, damn expensive) it's only a matter of extra weight and extra cables all around the hood, performance are not affected if correctly tuned, and i can ride with same mileage but only for 0,89$ for 0,26gal and i can still ride with my stang and make shake everything i meet on the road.
-SYNC system
-Shaker 1000 audiosystem

Here's the mods list :

-Added side markers just on the top of GT badge and modified tail-lights, just to comply stupid euro laws, and a lot of other adaptations, took me 1 year long battle with at local agency to get the damn plates.. .. ..
-CAI from Steeda
-91oct tune (consider that here you'll find 91octane gas as standard one)
-170 degrees thermostat
-jlt oil catch can
-Long tube headers by JBA
-Catted H-Pipe by JBA (yeah, x-pipe sounds like normal hi-perf euro cars, i bought a stang to have the gurgling deep and low tone)
-Ford racing axlebacks FR500SA (in my opinion, the best you can buy! absolutely drone-free and hellish when WOT)
-Hood struts
-Carbon look wrapped trims on the dash

here's some photos..

ps.. sorry for my english, i know it's not that good

Nice car. I don't think that your english is all that bad. I meet many Americans every single day who can not speak it nearly as well as you can.

Alan, I think I figured out what your car needs. One of those hood scoops! It seems to add a more aggressive look to the front end.

Welcome to the forum!

I really do like the hood scoop on manuel's car. I may have to consider it.

Welcome from Atlanta. Looking good. Thanks for all the pics. You might need a re-tune after installing the exhaust system...Not sure.

Hello manuel86it, I'm new to the forum. I live in Canada but my brother just moved to Italy and he brought his 2010 Mustang with him. Now he is having a lot of problems trying to get it registered. Can you tell me what make and model number the lights you had to put on the car and how you got the vin on the frame. Thank you

Hi

My name is Guy

I have brought my 2010 Mustang from Canada to Italy in Lazio. To get the plates, they (in Frosinone) say i had to add the flashers on the side of the cars and have orange flashers in the back. Ford went tall the trouble of configuring the gorgeous chaser flasher but whatever. i figured i would replace one of the backing (white) lights by an orange and connect them to the other flasher circuit. and adding flashers on the side of the car should be simple enough. So far, this is fairly simple. but they told me i have to change the headlights.

I need help, i asked them what was wrong and they couldn't even tell me. i found out from others that they want half light on low beams (i think).

Anybody can help me?

Welcome in italy! The country where every import car is made different from each other in terms of lights and requirements to get them registered! It could be a pain but i'll try to give you some directions.

- for the VIN in my car i had it stamped on one of the strut tower braces, first ripped off some paint to obtain a raw grey background and them with a hammer and a metal stamp "printed it". the most important thing for them is that the vin stays on a non-removable part of the car. If you look at the passenger side strut support in my hood photo, you'll notice it.

- for the lights, you basically have to add a marker light in the main headlamp, many drill the headlight and insert an additional little lamp, you can reply me "i have already the yellow ones on the lower bumper", but for the euro laws this direction must stay not more far that some cm from the H13 main lamp so that's why many do that.
-then you need to add some side markers, these must stay on space between the side mirror and the middle of the front tire, many do like me (look the lights i've added near the gt badge, you can select one in a common auto shop, mines are from the Opel (GM) Astra model and they're quite nice, or you can mount the 2005-2009 mirror with lights incorporated (unfortunately they don't do it for the 2010-on), and then on the backlights side direction must be yellow, so you had to add them, as well as rear fog lights.

I tried to give you an idea, there is a very clever guy that do this "euro conversions", specialized on Mustang (don't go to the first person available, is very easy to overload one of the lines of the power supply and blow the controllers), everyone (included me) can speaks great things of him. He's got also a website (he also have an activity as american spare parts dealer), it's www.ricambiamericani.com, there you'll find email address and cell phone number, he's from north italy (Padova), but i think he can travel. Or as second options you can go to a specialized agency near Bologna called american vip (www.americanvip.it). Consider that this in any case will have a cost. Call both of them and ask for a quote.
I know personally Luca and i can say he's a true expert, he solved many issues between my friends, he's the reference person for Mustang in Italy for our club, he has service manuals, schemes and know how to work properly.

by the way, i don't know if i'm wrong, but i think that if the car is still registered you have the ability to travel freely for 1 year here, like a tourist. without adapting anything!
