    I mate of mine had two... Both brand new and both had everything possible done to them, great looking but he sold them because they still didn’t perform well and they are cheaply made, things where starting to fall apart months after he brought them and as mentioned they are as common as dog shit...

    I'm about a month away from delivery of a 2018 model. It's quite a bit different. Magna ride suspention (computer adjusts shock damping rates) , a 12:1 compression, direct+port injected engine, ,a 10 speed gearbox, and an all digital dash did it for me...

    Yup, all the press and reviews I've read say the new '18 model is way better than the previous model

    My mate has one and loves it ......... I have never been in it though so I cant say anything ....... but I said to him you will need to upgrade to the 2018 and he said he likes the old style dash better than the digital so will keep his for a while ... :)

    That was my take on it too. The '17 was an OK, American V8, ie lots of torque, slightly crappy interior, heavy and an old school auto gearbox. I test drove one and would have picked the Kia Stinger over it.

    The '18 stang was just that notch better and you could order options too.. You won't be impulse buying one though, I handed over a deposit last October, the ship bringing it here just got to Brisbane. :-(

    1. I wanted one last October when Ford was sending me all the marketing material for them. The first ones didn't get here 'till late July.
    2. In February I found out that there were orderable options, the dealer had no idea in October, actually he had no idea in February I had to walk in with the email from Ford... Magnaride and Recaro seats. This pushed me back 2 months (and well into LCT territory).

    I don't know.
    It's called Kona blue. Looking at pics on the web it ranges from blue to purple, depending on camera and light.

    I heard they have a 2 star ANCAP. But I dunno if it's accurate.

    Not real concerned about the ANCAP ratings I ride a motorbike LOL, and unless you crash your car exactly how they test them I think it’s a WOFT anyway.
