Funny you should say that, yes itís on my list. I really donít like the rear badge it looks almost Japanese car style.

Itís supposed to simulate the fuel filler caps on the old mustangs but doesnít !

My plan is to get a blank gloss black deck lid and either put the GT letters base in gloss black or the GT Coyote badge.

On a separate note my carbon fibre rear window louvres arrived this week, however one of them is broken in transit so they wonít be fitted. Really annoying as theyíve taken weeks to rock up now Iíve got to wait all over again. On a positive note on trial fitting they look brilliant.

So watch this space...

Minor update this week, Iíve changed the DRL bulbs to LED as the OEM halogen bulbs look terrible.

Part way through, one side done and one original



All done





Also a new purchase as Iím paranoid about the car security ! Excuse the dirty mats !



Some shameless shots of my favourite angles

I also had a quick attempt at a video of the Ford Performance Active Exhaust to hear the difference between quiet mode and loud mode !

You never really get the full experience on an internet clip and also this really comes to life under load but hopefully this video will give you a flavour of the two different modes.

Hope this works...

Wow that exhaust is really nice. Practical too as your not put off doing long journeys due to it being ‘too loud’ and offensive all the time.

My only gripe and a minor one. The active system always defaults to loud on start up, so I have to manually switch to quiet every time I start it up. If I donít itís insanely loud for the first minute whist itís on the cold start running.
