Yes, the MyColor was an interior upgrade option for $460.00 that came with the satin aluminum panel. I've read that you can get the dash cluster and install it yourself.

Here's what mine looks like;

If you go through Ford to purchase one it could be costly around $475.00. An option is to find a used one on eBay or Craigslist and send it to this company; http://www.aaellc.com/

From what I understand, they charge like $160.00 to reset the mileage odometer to show what you have on your car, so all you have to do is connect it.

I'm with everyone else. Actually, I waited from the base V6 to go on sale. I didn't really want any options.

Don't you hate the fact that Ford didn't put the Hamster with the wheel option under the hood, instead of a combustion engine?

same here, i wanted a bust out (no options) so i could mod everything the way I want, but ended up w/ traction Control, rear spoiler and door stripe. With that being said I used to really like the digital read out in my commander and wish my mustang had it ha!

Plain Jane no-frills version here too... only fancy option mine came with was the trac control (couldn't find any without it). I've always preferred simple basic models, less things to break.

Having the "MyColor" option would have only encouraged me to rice out the Mustang like my old Explorer with LED's and cathodes. It's easy enough to just know "On a full tank, at 240 miles, it's time to fill-er up!" I do miss the digital compass, though, that much I'll say.
