2024 Mustang GT Convertible
Finally took delivery this afternoon after another 3 hour wait in the dealer's showroom after being told it would be ready by 2:00. Lots of registration headaches trying to reactivate my custom vanity plate I took off my Chevy in March. I have a generic MA plate on there now and left without an inspection sticker just to get going. I'll put my special GT plate on there in March when I reregister before the plate's 365-day expiration in my state.

Coming from a 2012 S197 V6 all I can say is WOW! Exterior, interior, all of it.

Other posts asked about:
  • inserts for the convertible - mine were in the trunk (have not tried yet). Bag had two stickers on it "PSCW102" and "PR3B-16A315-AA" but neither one seems to be a valid Ford part number. Fake news - those were underbody strakes that were supposed to be installed by the dealer during step 3 of PDI. Ordered aftermarket for S550 and will test fitment. I wasn't able to get the S550 inserts to fit, but I will accept that I'm just doing it wrong. In any event, after learning more about convertible top damage in previous model years, I'm not looking for these any more.

  • Windshield screen - S550 cover fits just fine. Got mine from CJ Pony Parts for far less than Ford for the same product and part number. Ford Part VJR3Z-78519A02-A

  • B & O sound system - had the volume at 20 (out of 30?) on the highway with the top down and track mode exhaust and it was loud, crisp, and clear. Didn't mess with any settings yet - trying to keep the screen clean for a day at least! Definitely keep a microfiber cloth on board for fingerprints! No real glare issues.

  • Ext. Warranty - I contacted Granger direct and they confirmed the prices are accurate on the website and come with what is offered in the brochure. My dealer said that was impossible and pressured me to buy from them for hundreds more.
    • I wasn't pitched the maintenance plan, but that have to be a really impressive price point to make it worthwhile for me. Keep your service records from other ASE certified shops and you'll be fine. If you do a DIY repair, save the parts receipts but be prepared for a little pushback (my experience with GM and a third-party warranty anyway).
    • I went with Premiumcare $0 deductible 10 years 60k miles @ $1,410 + enhanced rental limits + interior/exterior lighting for a total of $1,525. Granger Link They prompt you right at checkout to use any Fordpass points you might have. My points posted within 24 hours. In my case, 42,000 points would have taken $210 off of the bill.
  • X-Plan - without a doubt get it and save thousands. Please don't pay ADM!! (DH is another story) Read other posts here about joining MCA.

  • Insurance - $530 for 6 months (collision + more than state minimum coverage)
My highlight of the day was messing with friends and family. With the engine running and the fob in my pocket, I told people to say loudly to the car "WAKE UP FORD" followed by "MAKE SOME NOISE" within a few seconds as I discretely operated the remote rev feature on the fob. I wish I took video of some of the reactions - priceless! I highly recommend it if you're a terrible person like me.

For everyone waiting to take delivery - hang in there. As was said here earlier, it's worth it!!

Might have to take it in for service. Somehow the gas gauge is already at 3/4. Must be a glitch...

Congrats, looks amazing! This is my exact spec, can't wait. Thanks for confirming the convertible inserts. If you get a chance can you post the part number? Enjoy in good health!

Eh, the spoiler was just gonna hold me down anyway. I agree with other posts that it it's included in the $5k price we should get a rebate. Somebody call one of those TV lawyers please! I smell a class action.

weird part is the EcoBoost PP comes with spoiler lip and GT dose not.....but the fun part is GT comes in 6speed and EcoBoost does not.......enjoy it....your car looks great with or without the lip

Hard to tell, is it rapid red or race red? A Couple of the pictures look up a little more red. Really pretty
I’ve had mine at 20 as well. The B&O is awesome
The ins on mine I can’t complain. Under $400 every 6 mos Advantages to being OLD
So you have a whole year to register your car?
You could be my son, the way you do with your family and friends. I don’t know how my husband has been with me for 47 years. I was a baby when I met him😂
I will not tell you what all I have done to him
As far as your gas, I don’t know how far you’ve driven, but they are very small tanks I have found.
The rev on my favorite down below, so I can turn off and on more easily. I kind of like it when you downshift and it’s really loud he doesn’t.🙄

Beautiful!

One note..

You have to be a member of MCA for 90 days to get the discount. It's bs but, heads up for those who have a wait ahead of them. A $50 membership can save you some money.

My spec is rapid red. I like the deeper color personally.

And no, MA has to be one of the tightest states in the union for, well everything. I have a state-issued (RMV) plate and registration. In MA, you have a year to reactivate plates previously registered but currently inactive. I really wanted a particular plate, so I ordered it in December for my daily driver, looked like an idiot driving a Chevy with a "GT" plate on it, and took that plate off in March. I have until March to get my vanity plate where it belongs.

Maybe you are my mom? My "mom" wouldn't even get in the car yesterday. Pulled the old "I'm 80" routine. I told her she was young enough to be president, but she wasn't hearing it. Literally.

I honestly think that you and I bought the same car.... I know I love the looks of mine.

I did not get the inserts for the convertible, so that will be a call to my dealership.

Thanks for sharing and enjoy your new ride!

Congrats on a beautiful vert, but why wouldn't you say no to pressure from your dealer on the EW to save hundreds? When I walk into the F & I department the first words out of my mouth is NO! No paint sealant, no to interior sealant, no to nitrogen fill. Just no to any other over priced add on they can think of.

I'm with you Instant Action. I'm sharing my experience precisely so people make the best decisions for themselves and not succumb to any high pressure tactics. The less information people have, the more they are inclined to go with what they are being told. I want to shout from the rooftops that you DO have options, chief of which is to just say no and walk away.

No doubt some people will argue buying an extended warranty of any kind is a mistake. I often agree. In this case, for my projected mileage, I believe the EW makes sense for me so I bought one from Granger. I bought a 3rd party EW for my '08 CTS which was a new generation at that time and it ended up being plagued with transmission issues that far exceeded the money I paid for the EW. I dumped the car when my EW ran out.
