MnemoncGhost's DIB 2013 Mustang GT

Had it for two weeks now and love every minute of it. It has:
  • 2013 GT Coupe Premium - 400A
  • Deep Impact Blue Metallic / Charcoal Black Leather
  • Auto
  • Electronic Package
  • Reverse Sensor / Security Package
  • Comfort Package
  • 19" Machined Aluminum Wheels
  • Rear Video Camera
I really love the electroncs in the car, but do wish for more! The sync and nav package is awesome to have. Love the mycolor and pony lights at night, they really stand out. Engine purrs like a kitten at idle and it's really hard to use the skinny peddle for more than a second before I'm going the speed limit.

I love driving it, but hate to park it (at least in public places). 300 miles or so thus far, and still breaking it in.


I do have a few wishes/suggestions for improvement:
  1. Wish I could bind custom mycolor configurations to each key. My wife loves green and orange gauges and I like blue/purple with red ambient. So far I'm winning the setting war!
  2. The gracenote system seems pretty robust, but really wish I could bulk load my music. I hate trying to burn my favorite CD's. I get about one done per day, two if I run arrands. USB support for cell phones and ipods is very sufficient however!
  3. One more USB plug for charging would have been nice.
  4. Sync and voice commands work really well! I am concerned about getting updates in the future. I'm not looking to facebook from my Mustang, but hope Ford keeps this stuff current with competition.
Planned 2012 Mods:
  1. Tint - Done! 10/27/12
  2. JLT Oil catch can
  3. Hood structs
Future Mods:
  1. Brake LIght Pulser
  2. Full Exhaust
  3. Upgraded speakers
  4. Covercraft Pocket Pod
Anyway, some pics.

You if can put all your music on your phone you can play it via bluetooth while it charges.
You can but a mini usb thumb drive with 32 gb to keep plugged in full of music.
You can but a usb charger in the cig lighter for just charging stuff.
You can get a multiport usb for chargeing more stuff.
No more cd's need to be made. Gross!

Why are you even letting her drive it in the first place?!? Deny her access, and problem solved.

Yep, I found that out shortly after ordering it. But technically the spoiler is different, and I'm sure Steve McQueen would only drive a stick. I still love the Auto in "my old age", and in my daily commutes.

Yep, got all that, but no single phone or drive I own has enough space for all my music. Also I'm a partial snob when it comes to digital music. 128bit MP3 torture my ears! But I'm not quite a FLAC/ALAC purist either. Lame VBR is my thing.

So essentially I have an excuse to sit in the car or go for a drive, because I want to finish importing my favorite cd's into the jukebox. Might as well use it if I got it!:shiny:

But yes, bluetooth streams well, and USB searches for tracks/artists/albums work exceeding well, by voice anyway.
