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.

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?

Hi Folks,

 

I've joined the forum in the hope that i a) eventually end up with a new toy and B) to get some pointers on the stock base media system.

 

Here in Dubai, the local ford dealer only orders cars with the base stereo system (small screen, no nav etc...)

 

I understand it would be the Tech Pack that i would need to order if ordering a new car, but due to the timeframe on getting one, i would rather pick up a unit they already have here and upgrade the stereo.

 

Issue i'm having is that the only dealer in the UAE has advised they have never done such a thing in their history of operating.

 

Main concern is they said if i do the conversion myself they will void warranty on all parts they can justify, but mainly its the AC system as the faceplate panel houses the controls, but i believe the touchscreen unit also has this ability.

 

The have told me to go get all the info on what i want to do and they will check with their tech guys to see what is possible and to keep everything under warranty i need to stick to OEM parts.

 

So, i need to get an idea on Parts

 

I understand i will need the 8in unit itself, presumably all wiring (existing wouldn't be sufficient or is it cross/compatible?), the faceplate to house the new larger screen.

 

What i dont know, is do i need the circuit board from the existing unit to attach to the new faceplate, fit the new head unit then connect the relevant harness?

 

Looking on fordparts.com, i have come across the following, but i cant work out what parts are needed for the set up i want

 

http://www.fordparts...keyword=radio# 

 

I would like the 8in screen, with the correct bezel/faceplate and for the system to have Nav, which i presume would need the Middle East Map pack loaded on an SD card, or are these now loaded directly onto the units?

 

There are a number of different Interface numbers and i have no idea which is which.

 

Whilst waiting for Ford USA to open so i can chat to someone online, does anyone have any pointers or has done this previously and has part numbers?

 

I can give them any number of videos from online showing them how to do it.

Any help appreciated and looking forward to a possible solution so i can move forward with a purchase.

 

Cheers

Hey Smithy!

 

I'm in exactly the same boat as you, the dealer in Dubai is honestly quite clueless.

 

It's not that they order these cars that way, I think Ford USA simply puts together a list of cars and sends it to them, I don't think they have that much say in what they receive.

 

I remember when I booked my GT350 in September 2015, they had the allotments, but all they knew they were receiving were the colours, and they did say they were coming with the 8inch screens (sync 3).

When I received the car in May 2016, the colour was right but the screen was the 4inch, so yeah they suddenly gave a "discount" to make us happy lol...

 

But yeah, they're clueless, they don't really know what to do when it comes to these kinds of cars... our only hope is to see if Ford comes out with an upgrade pack or something, because as much as I love my car, I sometimes miss having great audio, not to mention the screen....

 

I'm going to keep looking, or say fuck it at some point in a few years when the GT500 is out.... :/

 

Really love this car though!

Have you gotten the cars yet? And out of curiosity why cant they ship a car with the Nav screen??

 

Im not in parts but I do work for a Ford store and have in the past shipped cars overseas so I am 

aware of the process. 

 

If the only reason your getting cars without Nav is your source here in the States maybe I can help

ps

 

sorry for the late reply but in reading your post maybe a better solution was not to get the nav in a non-nav car but get a 17 that has all the coolers and

is track ready but with Nav
