Things I didn't notice on my new Mustang...

...until after I bought it.

There's no ashtray. Not a real big deal. I don't smoke so that was the last thing I was looking for. However, I usually used the ashtrays in my other cars for small trash, gun wrappers, etc. I know they have those removable ashtrays that fit it one of the cupholders. Should my Mustang have come with one?

The Mustang emblem on the windshield right behind the rearview mirror.

The emergency fuel shutoff switch right by the hood release.

Notice the grocery bag clips on the rear inside the trunk? They will keep most plastic grocery bags in place.

Also the rear upholder has a false bottom

You can buy one from Ford that fits in the cupholder for $29.95 I believe. I've bought two, one for my 05 Ranger and one for the stang.

If you have the interior upgrade package your gauges will change to red when things get critical (unless, you have selected red as your color). e.g. if you get really low on gas your gas gauge turns red, etc.

Did you notice the false bottom in the rear cupholder? I use it to hide my crack. Don't tell anyone, but really that's where I hide my wheel lock socket.

That's too cool. I didn't know that. I'll let it go to empty next time just to see that!

Did not notice that. Good idea for the wheel lock socket.

Yes they do. It's the little glowing thing hanging in the trunk. Make sure you remove it before you put your hostages in there.

Yeah, how 'bout this?

My dealer sold the vehicle I wanted by the time I made it there (about a week, internet shopper) so two very similar 'stangs were up for grabs, one 20 mi away, another 600. Being impatient, I opted for 20, which had the Sport Appearance Package, vs IUP w/ mycolor. Whatever. How many times am I gonna change the display chroma, right?

Well, there's no batt charge or oil pressure gauges with the SAP (i know, dumb a$$ me). Boy do I feel like a heel.

I ran mine at "noticeably purple" for a while, then back to 5-1-1 [red] then blue until I read the thread about "What do you guys think of my blue LED interior lights?" and immediately switched back to red.

Blue was also harder to focus on, in the dark. Nice and clear and bright and all, just hard for my pupils to adjust to. Red works so much better; no probs with night vision changes or anything. So I'll never notice until it is too late, that my fuel is low and stuff

I've written a book or two. Google David Buschhorn to laugh at my scribblings.
