I did it! 2011 Mustang GT500

I picked up my new Shelby yesterday afternoon. All white with stripe delete and SVT plus nav. It also has a car cover which I haven't seen yet. Anyone know where that is located?

I love it and my wife even likes it! I didn't tell her how much it cost. I'm still pretending it's just a regular GT. She commented about the Shelby names all over it but doesn't know what it means.

My fav besides the awsome power is the exhaust. I havn't played the radio yet!

I don't know if I'm going to add a stripe or not. It's kind of elegant without it. Something to think about down the road.

I'll get some pictures as soon as I get some time.

If not in the trunk, it's located at your dealer's parts department. Be sure you go back to the dealer and pick it up... Some dealerships like to keep things that come with the car, and later, tell you the parts/documentation/manuals/accessories/etc., were in the car. I had that problem when I bought my KR; dealer had switched out the Shelby mats, and pilfered the KR supplemental info.
Make sure you have everything!

Congratz, I am in a serious love affair with my 2010 Shelby. Take my word and spend an additional $375 for an SCT tunner and the Bama tunes. Night and day!

Oh and BTW, the $55 Ford Racing Resonator Delete is as good as any of the $400 CAI kits in terms of HP gains.

Thanks guys and thanks for all the tips. I called my dealer today about the cover - haven't heard back yet. I picked the car up yesterday afternoon and I've got 175 miles on it and less than 1/4 of a tank of gas left. It's just so hard to keep my foot out of it! I'll have some pictures soon.
