    I ordered mine a couple weeks ago and my dealer just called and told me the order has been kicked out becasue Ford is not producing the Interior Upgrade Package right now and he didn't know why. He said it would probably be February before they started again.

    Just curious if there were any Ford "insiders" here who could give me an idea of what the holdup is...or wven if it is because of the MyColor lawuit or a supply shortage?
     
  2. bump....I have no idea. But my bro is interested in buying one.

    Actually it was Thursday I talked to him, I think...so maybe "just called" wasn't the best phrase to use :noes:

    It's not the MyColor, Ford's supplier, Delphi Electronics has a patent on it.

    If he is going to order one, send me a PM and I will give you the dealer name where I got mine for $8 above invoice.

    These '05 Mustangs are already on seemingly every driveway of every teenage girl in town. Not trying to exagerrate, but it seems that all these little 16 year old girls got new Mustangs for Christmas yesterday. I saw at least 2 dozen gifted Mustangs yesterday alone.

    I've only actually seen two so far. As for how they are holding up, only thing I've heard is about one guy got a lemon engine, so for is replacing his engine for him.
