Rprout, my car consumes a quart about every 1200 miles give or take. I drive it aggresively on the streets using lots of high RPMS ... according to ford this is within normal limits of the design

@  Rprout : (13 December 2017 - 07:39 PM)

My 2017 GT 350 consumed 1qt in 920 miles - spirited street driving only - I see at least one person here with oil consumption issues. Anyone else? Remedies?

@  Foon : (08 December 2017 - 01:46 PM)

I changed dead battery in 2008 Shelby, now my instrument cluster is not working correctly. No fuel indication , no oil pressure indication,no blinkers or 4 ways(indication). All lights work but don't indicate. Did I blow a fuse, does the computer need reset??

New member purchased a used 2016 GT350 in Aug. Loving it so far.

Anybody know if 66 350 H came in white with gold stripes? I always thought they only came in black with gold or white with blue. The one I've got is white with gold. I did a bare metal strip and repaint and if it was a repaint I can't tell.It's also got a Paxton on it. I freshened it up, forged pistons and rods, cam. shaft mounted Jesel roller rockers, etc. It's dynoing about 585, and I love driving it. It's gonna get me in trouble. Thanks, if anybody knows about the paint.

I placed an order and paid for the License plate holder that is listed on this site on the 15th & to date I have not gotten any shipping info. Also sent an email with no response. Any suggestions? It is through registry market place.
They refunded my money, but I really wanted the license plate holder. I will look elsewhere I guess.

Hello everyone!

 

I never thought this day will ever come but in about a week I will take delivery of a brand new 2017 GT350R. Black with black stripes/red accent, electronics package. I attached a picture taken at the dealership. Needless to say, I'm super excited.

 

I had to pay over MSRP but I was able to get what I think is a fair deal. Especially considering that here in So Cal used GT350Rs trade hands for ~150,000 on average. The car right now it's in Florida, on her way to LA. The first thing I'll do is to put XPEL all over the front bumper, hood and side impact zones.

 

It's really hot here in the LA county over the summer and all the racetracks are out in the desert, so unfortunately I won't be able to track it until mid-September. I really can't wait!

I bought it from Walkers Ford in Clearwater. During my (short) lifetime I only bad experiences with car dealerships but with them it was a smooth and easy process and most importantly they were very reasonable in terms of pricing. 

 

I looked for a black-on-black R for I don't even remember how long. I found a couple in the past but they were both listed for more than 120K. When I saw that they had one available I called them immediately.

Thank you!

 

I'll take it to the track very often, I'm shooting for one track day a month. I know it might hurt its value but it's a car that is meant to be driven on the track. Buying an R and not tracking it is like wasting money in my opinion.

I have taken the delivery of the car a few hours ago. I never felt so excited about a car. The car was unloaded from the delivery truck and I immediately drove it to the canyons. I put over 100 miles on it in a couple of hours. The car is absolutely insane. At the moment I really have no words - I really don't know how to describe it. Below is a link to a quick video

What a great day for you and what a drop dead gorgous car that is. WOW ........ I can appreciate your excitement and its well deserved !!

 

The black with the black striipes I think our one of the best color combos for a R .... the other being in red

 

I have yet to see a R on the road ..... mind driving it back to Florida ?  :)

 

Enjoy it !

Nope, I only had a GoPro Session on my head and the windows were rolled down. The car is simply incredibly loud.

Used GT350R's are trading hands for $150K on average?  Don't believe the hype!  That's crazy talk.

Ya thats crazy ....... A suggestion .... keep a eye every 1000 miles on your oil ..... these engines can eat oil so be aware of it

Pretty standard here on the West Coast. I ran into a guy here in LA two days ago that paid close to 90k for a regular GT350
