Have not found one yet. When I see it live, and if I like it, I'll take one and post it.

The fitment is on point as per Ford standard :D

If this is the extent of fitment issues on the S650 (and a year-early pre-production model no less) then hal-le-lu-jah!

The S550’s build quality was equal to Frankenstein’s resurrection being finished on a Friday at 4:00pm. Hood seams, fender seams, trunk, rear bumper seams, window panels, you name it lol. Savagegeese did an excellent job of pointing this out to the public on his Bullitt review which made me happy because it never was talked about enough

After seeing tons of pics of the S650 and seeing it in person the build quality gap alone makes it look $5-10k more expensive lol

I just want to see more high res pictures of the interior to get an idea of how materials and build quality are from that standpoint.

I can tell you from experience, they’re maybe a tick better in terms of peak material quality but the main improvement is the consistency of material use across the board

Like the good materials in the primary touch areas look more or less the same (ie you won’t be blown away but you won’t complain) but the awful scratchy plastics and misaligned thinly-trimmed surfaces are gone, like what you’d find on the S550 below the alloy trim line

If you have car that is on a car show and has this alignment gap then you for sure cannot expect the production cars to be much better :p

I had my fair share of issue with my GT with regards to panels
* Passenger door had touched the fender and the paint was chipped so both needed to be spot painted (saw this the same day I got the car)
* Trunk lid touched the rear fender and the paint was chipped and both had to be spot painted
* Weather seal in the trunk was blue and not black = paint transfer from the lid to the seal and the paint was almost gone in those areas un the lid
* Trim around the small rear windows, I could put a finger behind the trim

Also remember the first thing I did at the dealer was to pop back a clip on the rear bumber :D

However the panel gaps were ok :)

ohh yeah also I did get a new long block, manifold............

Last time I am ranting about this 🤣
