Yeah, looks like they went all out though. Can't wait to see performance #'s and track times.

"Available as part of the optional Performance Package, SVT-designed Bilstein electronic adjustable dampers are accessed on the dash with a simple push of a button."

"The adjustable shocks let us develop our car on the track without any compromise," said Kerry Baldori, Ford SVT Global Performance Vehicles chief engineer. "Before, we had to tune the car with street implications in mind. Now we can go as extreme as we want on the track setting and still offer the customer a comfortable ride on the road."

i'm pretty sure Mustangs are easy to grab power from... intake, header back exhaust and tune alone should net over 700. i'm thinking around 750! I'd like to know a lot more about the specs of this motor that's producing 650hp first to make sure

lets hope they get all the suspension and other components right too. Watch them throw on the live rear axle again and forget to put on a limited-slip

Most important for daily drivers, Ford is for the first time on a Mustang offering an active suspension option with an electronically-adjustable Bilstein dampers that promise a smooth ride to the track and world class handling on it. A retuned stability and traction control system, now with launch control, are also included.

Check to see if there is any unclaimed property California is holding under your name. Linked it to a friend and he found 10k in unclaimed bonds. Unfortunately I found 0 under my name =/.

Hey all! Long time no talk - I've been really busy with school.

Sean, that guy is nuts lol. He has no case. All of his threats are invalid. As somebody in your thread said, try to get a legitimate threat out of him (e.g., "I will come to your house and chop you into little pieces, grind you up, and turn you into a burger") and then call the cops.

Whatever you do, don't allow him to return the item. Don't refund his money. He doesn't deserve it.

Paypal already said that buyer needs to return the item, and then a refund will be issued once seller (me) receives the item
But if the item I receive is indeed no the same item I sent, then, as a value paypal customer/client, I can file a dispute under Seller Protection

I've done enough transactions over Paypal this year alone that would probably be worth as much a used 335i.... Done plenty as well over the years. So I think I'm trustworthy, right?
