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.

Unless you already have, I would post this under racing ..... but I think you will be fine. I am sure your not the first GT350 to run that track.

@  G3012 : (26 October 2017 - 06:54 PM)

I have had my Metallic GT350 for a little over a year now, and love to drive it. The mountains of Northern CA (Napa, Sonoma, Lake and Mendocino counties) are a drivers dream. I also went to Utah for the 2 day school that was way too much fun. I now am planning on some track days out here in the west, but must meet their sound limits. Sonoma and Thunderhill have a max of 103db, while Laguna Seca are as low as 94 some days. How loud is this monster? Has anyone had any issues on track days for noise? Has anyone been to Sonoma or Thunderhill with their GT350 and had any issues? Thanks for the help,

@  smokum : (24 October 2017 - 03:24 PM)

Any current production car its hard to tell if it will be a collectible or not. I honestly don't see that with the GT350. I dont think it will affect value since it was a warrantied item. Its unfortunate that this is happening but you are getting a new engine which is the right thing to do with Ford. I don't think Ford will replace the car. I suggest if you want a better sample of opinion to start a thread in the appropriate section

@  tedstefaniw : (24 October 2017 - 10:17 AM)

Hey members, would like some Opinions. I purchased my 2016 GT350 late march this year from Levittown Ford NY. I was getting some serious engine knocking noise when starting the car. Had it in the dealer three times, first in July to get it checked, they couldn't diagnose. after keeping the car for days. 2 weeks ago car lost almost all the oil, due to the Oil filter backing out! Most likely due to the excessive engine vibration(rods/lifters?). Destroyed my driveway and my Jobs parking lot. Finally this last time they told me I need a new long block! No problem thay will order new engine. My gripe is I want a new car, I didn't pay over sticker for the best Mustang ever built to get a engine replacement after 6 months. Not to mention , if I ever want to sell the car what this would do to it's resell value. Opinions please?

Having 20% put on windows (except windshield) today. WA state law allows 24% thus 20% is pushing it. I've seen some pony's with 5% which is crazy- you cannot see anything in the car! Could way to meet the police force everyday here...

I have had window tinting in almost every car ...... except for the last three. My two GT500's and my current GT350. In part the clear windows give you a slight better visibility esp at night but

the biggest reason is so people can see the inside of the car and i can see them .... LMAO !!!

wag ...... the red calipers would look great on all GT350s except red and black

 

RED and BLACK cars our off the chart great looking .... spend the extra money and get the R calipers .... that car is gorgous now and

would be doubly gorgous with the red calipers

Always check with local codes for tinting.  Many areas of the country do not allow tinting over a total percentage of the what is already in the glass (all cars come with some tint due to having a/c).  If the car is sold or you transfer to another State, it has to meet the local code.  I have seen so many cars locally that had to have the front windows and rear glass tint add on tint removed (it is not cheap to have done).  The codes usually are based on the  ability of law enforcement being able to see those in the car, day or night.  Being a stealth driver is not appreciated by the police and sheriff departments.

Thanks Don for posting the pic of Wag's red calipers.  I'm swapping a 2013 Carrera S for the Shelby and will miss the Porsche red calipers (silly I know) but are those completely new calipers or covers or painted or what?

I tinted everything, except the window shield, with 20%. WA state law is 24% thus close enough to be safe. This is state is fairly easy on the tint but other states actually inspect the glass during their yearly inspection (i.e. New York)!
