The compression setting is to bring the "loud" and "soft" parts of music closer to the same volume. I personally don't like the compression setting, but, for instance, if you have made "mix" CDs from mp3s that have different volume levels, it might come in handy.

Ahh, I never knew that, thanks.
Yes I do have a few songs on a made cd that are quieter than others, will give it a try

Thanks kind of like when watching a movie or something, and it goes to commercial and the darn thing is so loud.

Amazing, I thought this was to help support the seat back...

In most of my recent cars/truck, I used to reach over the top of the seat with my right hand to reach the driver's side belt on my left. For the new Mustang, I resorted quickly to reaching with my left hand toward the bottom of the belt.

I don't know if I will use this feature much as my two little ones use the back seat often and the belt might be a tripping hazard for them if I used these straps. But it is good to know!

You know bad guys; where there's a will there's a way.....
That will really upset my trunkmonkey. Somebody is gonna get hurt.

There is also a metal plate separating the top well from the trunk area. Like I said in a previous post - don't lock your keys in the trunk of the vert. The only way to get them is with another set of keys or remote. I found out the hard way. Other vert specific things - want to roll down all four windows without putting the top down? Just punch the top release button once - disabled when in motion. Also - my top won't raise or lower without the engine running - the manual says it's recommended but on my car it seems to be mandatory.

I've always thought the Headrest are uncomfortable. I was surprised to find that after I got it home that they do not adjust backwards and that they're permanently angled forward.

MEH362, I agree with you about the headrests...they are a bit uncomfortable at times since they can't be adjusted (except for going up/down)...

Really? Hmm. My top goes up and down without the engine running. Hmm. And yes, that all four windows down thingy is nice too.

I was going to remove the headrests in the vert to get a cleaner look but the rear seats still stick up and spoil it. They sell a rear seat delete kit but I don't know how you would secure the boot cover without the hooks on the seat back.

Unless you are super tall, try this. Raise the headrest. It gives you more rearward head movement since it moves the forward-most part of the headrest higher and above your head. You'll still have cushion at the botom of the headrest if you need it for an accident (hopefully you won't ever need it). I do this when on the track wearing a helmet.

I just wanted to take a quick sec to say thanks for all the useful info posted on this thread. This is my first "new" and first "sports" car and I have enjoyed reading everything here starting at the beginning. I found myself running to the garage every couple of pages to see the things I had missed. My wife hates the new car cuz it is my "fun" car and I use my Ranger as my daily driver. I hope to continue to read more insightfulness!!

Yeah, I locked my keys in the trunk on my convertible, too, it was 4 AM and I was 3 miles from home stopping for a coffee and had to be at reserves that morning. Needles to say I got my PT done that morning running home in combat boots to get my extra key. I was late for muster, too. Should have just called in sick to the OIC.
