That's great to hear, please PM me with the code. An update to AM's forum post explaining how to get the discount code is probably needed now that there is a way.

As for caranderson's rant obviously aimed at me, well how about applying some logic to your thought process of why people are upset at AM?

1 you make a policy for giving out a generic forum discount code that obviously doesn't hurt your bottom line
2 the person tasked with giving out the discount code either no longer exists or stops doing their job
3 you receive numerous calls asking about the code because no one can get it.
You do nothing about it
4 months go by and negative forum comments start growing, still nothing is done
5 reputable companies like LMR offer a code without question
6 I wonder what is going to happen?


AM is 100% responsible for the situation. It's poor management at it's finest. If I actually get a code, and other forum members stop having trouble getting codes I will stop criticizing them, simple as that.

Don't know maybe a pet peeve of mine but when you have a company and you don't actively market and communicate with your captive direct customer base that's just horrible business.

I've noticed that too being all late to the scene as I am. Older posts.. AM interacting, discount codes, etc, same with Ford and Deysha, now... flatline. It's like these cars got a few years on them and they all pulled out. It's not like American Muscle sells to Camaro owners, or Hellcats.. they do Mustangs, period. It ain't much to market to at all. They should be active and all over every Mustang group and forum.

Dealing with them.. Well they are nice on the phone. I asked about a Magnaflow competition axleback exhaust. They told me the one listed as "race" in the catalog is that one. I had to disagree as it obviously was not. After pointing out what I knew to be true they started asking around to each other in the office, and no one had an answer, it was Justin I talked to. So I called Magnaflow with part #'s and decriptions and they verified the competition was not made for 13-14 GT as an axleback at all, only catback. As he asked me to I called back to tell AM (Justin) the answer they did not know. This blew my mind as this is ALL they do.

Next.. I ordered a McLeod clutch line, and wanted it fast. I had gotten my Flowmaster axleback in 2 days with no special shipping, and so I paid them for a rush to guarantee delivery fast for the line. Well a week later it shows up. I got an email asking to rate them which you can imagine I did as someone who felt they just got ripped off. I even asked for a callback, and explaination... nothing.

Sorry, I just don't agree. We are their market, we buy from them, are willing to pay top dollar to them, they should serve and cater to us, we are the very reason for them to exist. Without the the Mustang enthusiast crowd they would not be.

AM is so inactive & unresponsive here that I was going to remove them from the forum. I checked first with the site owners & was told that they are still paying to be here, so I left them alone. Not sure why they would pay & not be here. This is not the only site they are paying to be on & not active on either. Must be some secret type of marketing strategy.

Regular forum discount used to be 5%. Sale discounts used to be more. Of course with them being absent here, I don`t know what their policy is nowadays.

Last year the code was worth 6% flat - regular or sale items. FWIW I had a cow about an issue with AM a while back. They refused to honor a posted price and finally offered me a little less than the forum discount on an item not on sale. Posted my experience on several social media sites and their head of social marketing contacted us and offered to honor the price. We accepted - though when we called in the salesperson on the phone didn't believe us at first. So bottomline is they did the right thing and took care of us. I'm happy. And there are still managers there that understand the customer is important.

Good to know. Sometimes you have to jump through hoops but as long as they take care of it in the end is what matters
