Sweet! Those brake lights are crazy or is that some strange effect caused by the video?

The front doesn't look all that different to me but I always thought the 2015-2017 models had kind of a big face compared to the svelte lines of the rest of the car. Hard to tell from the photos but...

I'd get it fixed correctly. Besides the possibility of dirt getting in the engine if it's not sealing properly or if the cap is not screwing on securely, there is the possibility of oil getting blown...

I think Ford would have chosen an oil resistant polymer to make that oil tube out of, so no, I doubt the engine oil will "eat it up". Having said that, the piece of plastic will probably just stay in...

Call your credit card company and reverse the charges. I've had that kind of action "wake up" a sleepy customer service department at other companies. I've only ordered twice from AM and have not...

I think I have that Kicker sub, the one that tucks into the right corner of the trunk out of the way?
Can't answer your wiring question because my car had the lower lever Shaker system without a sub...

Can't imagine how it would hurt the seals unless one sprayed so much that it pooled somewhere. I just "misted" it in through the TB. If the car backfired, wouldn't that be indicative of a different...

I hear that clicky noise, not normal for sure. Something's loose maybe? Does it stop if you put your hand on the shifter?

Almost sounds like a bad U-Joint.

I think this might be at least in part due to the reaction folks had when the 2015 gen 6 model was introduced. It's grown on me but at the time I much preferred the more traditional look of the S197...

I've been using the Mobil 1 5w-30 extended service oil in my GT. The engine does not seem to use any oil between changes (7500-9000 miles depending on when the oil life monitor tells me it's time).
