We are looking at July arrivals and if you want one of the first (at the spec you want) you MUST get your order in by 20/12/17. That's right, next week.

We cannot really give a good indication of standard spec at the moment but new options will include:

Recaros
Magnaride
Wing Spoiler
Forge Wheels

Please speak to your local dealer for more information, or we are happy to organise your order today :) Please PM me as I don't check the forum all the time :)

And July isn’t bad. I did predict it might not be far off 2nd quarter.

I thought it would be late Q3 so July is a bonus.

July (early Q3) would be good.

My Dealer is still saying realistically by the time they get through pre delivery etc late Q3 (September) in your garage.

I like the recaro option which comes from PP2 I think.

Pretty excited for this car.

That's interesting given most review sites were saying the 2018 wasn't confirmed for Australia. Deliberately misleading!

Great news!

To be fair we haven't had an official release yet.

Id expect that early in the new year.

Maybe holding off till MY17 stock is lower? They're showing 1079 new/demo's 2017 models on carsales.

Not sure what their stock holding is like outside of those numbers but my dealer had about 8.

No pricing at the moment sorry.

But I will stress getting what you want locked in by next Wednesday (if you want the exact spec YOU want) Hopefully you know us well enough that we don't BS.

Sounds like Ford are locking in spec very early, which makes sense being first allocation.

This is not your fault so please don't think i'm shooting the messenger here.

But it's not good enough for Ford once again to expect people to lock away a purchase like this without knowing anything about what specification we're getting or price.

Once again Ford putting the cart before the horse.

Yeah I don't get it.

Realistically people will be taking delivery in Late August / Early Sept if history is anything to go by.

If you watch the video they say export orders to Europe/Asia will start april/may.

Traditionally we're last off the line after them thanks to our bespoke ADR's..

Then 6-8 weeks freight time by ship.

Shipping normally goes to Qld first, then down the coast to Melb.

So i might be a bit pessimistic here but I agree, aug/sept more likely.

In any event some time in Q3 for first allocation.

I think the option list will be much longer so effectively its tick a box to get you to PP1

Why not just give us PP1.

Things like proper DRL's and blindspot were missed on the last one.

Because I suspect there’s a fairly significant price hike on the way and to offset that the base will lose content to the option list to keep it lower on paper.

The work to shift mustang gets harder and harder from now on.

It bothers me the percentage of cars modified. Usually when people do that they are planning on keeping rather than update so those current owners might be a low percentage of the next wave for this model.

The current car has dropped 10k. If the new car has any price increase the change over starts to become less friendly.

I can understand dealers needing to commit to volume for launch, but specification and pricing is important for me while I am sitting on the fence.

Gut feel makes me think MY18 dealer stock holding won't be high as this year was.

We'd like to know how much the thing is going to be as well don't worry! Generally we never know MLP when ordering new model, doesn't matter if it's a Mustang or Focus

Hi all,

just want to ask, who would buy what if they where looking at an MY18/19 as options:

19" forged wheels $2500

Spoiler- $750 (n/a convertible)

Recaro seats- $3000 (n/a convertible)

Magneride- $2750

Question on the recaros, are they still heated/cooled like the std seats?

Also are these prices inclusive of LCT? Or is that added on after?

Recaros DO NOT have heat/cool function and these prices are excluding LCT

You would be taking a risk ordering any with the wheels, magneride or the recaros as these options are expensive, especially if your customer does not want them.

Its a bit like ordering an FPV GT with 6 pot brembos without a signed order, these cars were a hard sell as people did not see the value in the extra stopping power.

Are these prices EX gst?

I've been dealing with it for 12 years, don't worry I know the story.

Our gut feel is Recaro will be taken up a fair bit as well as Magneride, quite a few with both, even with the cost involved. And we do tend to up sell once the factory options are on the vehicle, it happens a lot on other models. Either way I will get it wrong, but usually pretty right.

Forged wheels won't be ordered by me unless the customer places a fresh order, they are ugly and expensive, as well as stripe packs.

4Vman
9th February 2018, 04:53 PM
Magnaride will be popular, if i was to order one id tick Magnaride.

If Recaro's disable good features of the car i doubt many will order them, especially with how good the std seats are.

WASP
9th February 2018, 05:47 PM
Magnaride a given. Wheels, Iíll need to see them first. Recaros only if they arenít leather ( donít like leather seats ). No rear spoiler

Problem is we are all enthusiasts. The mainstream mustang burr will just want the car for its badge.. not 6-9k worth of factory options.

True.

Like FPV, how many people optioned 6/4 Brembos???

Most were more interested in stripes.

Totally agree with dash. Maybe the magnaride for me but the rest I would not think the wife would care about. I know she certainly wouldn't drop heated/cooled seats for Recaro's.

9th February 2018, 09:33 PM
It’s a tough one and something I’ve spoken to my friends in dealerland about. I would order 70% stock and 30% with both options in the mrc and the recaros. If Ford were smart they would have packaged these together. Wheels should be a dealer fit option.

Thanks for the input guys.

I've done a bit of a backflip on my ordering with your input and made a fair few plain with minimal options on some. Some good points raised.

I agree, if Ford just made it so a GT and then something called whatever, GT-P for example, it would have made things a lot easier to choose and build. It looks like nothing is changing for MY19 except a few colours cut.

Yep agree.

Packaging groups of options and making them stand alone models makes life easier come sell and resale.

They should combine Magnaride with different wheels and the spoiler and call it GT-P as you say.


Is MY19 a typo or the reality?! LOL

I believe you.

We wont be getting cars till about the time MY19 hits their production line anyway so might as well be MY19.

At best we will get 3 months of MY18.

Probably explains the hefty price hike too. Its 2 years in one.

Grey is my fleet colour, trying to keep them all the same :P

I was going to go to go the lightweight wheels which are silver. I'm a bit over black wheels but they are a $3k option!
