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?

Is anyone have a problem with the tranny popping out of first from a dead stop? Doesn't happen often,but did happen at an intersection and almost got hit.

Only happened once in 6500 miles.  However, I have had several instances of it going "halfway" into first.  When that happens I'm greeted with gear grinding.  Most sticks I've driven do the "halfway thing" on occasion but it's usually really obvious.  It just feels halfway in.  You just go to neutral, let the clutch out for a sec and try again.  The GT350 fools me now and then since takes a fair amount of force to go into gears and has short throws to boot.  I think popping out of gear is the same phenomenon as I described, but the engagement is less so you get no grinding, but it pops out.  My transmission is getting smoother and this happens less often as the miles accumulate.  Hot weather seems to help and of course I'm getting more accustomed to the car's quirks.

Never popped out of first gear, but for the first couple hundred miles I too put it halfway into first. I think it's only because it was brand new, it hasn't happened to me in a while. Generally speaking, the transmission has become smoother over time

I just turned over 7500 mi on the way home from work tonight.  The transmission is definitely smoother after some miles.  No real surprise, though.  I've had three cars bought new that took quite a few miles to smooth up.  The other sticks, well, they were pretty worn in when I bought 'em.
