New to the Forum, Here is my '16 Cali Special!

Hi guys, new to the forum. I'm a Sales Consultant for a local Ford dealership. On the 4th I just purchased my 1st Mustang. 2016 California Special. Absolutely love her. Still completely stock.

I am not here to push sales, however if anyone local is interested in working with me do not hesitate to ask.

Thanks guys. Its crazy, I've been selling these for over a year now and its a whole different ball game when you own one. Not entirely crazy about the gas mileage. I did go from a '15 Fusion, driving about 300 miles a month to the GT and I've put nearly 500 miles on it in under 2 weeks(started dating someone 20 miles away).

All in all, I'm not much of a 'car guy'. I don't know much about the mechanics but man... I want to learn now. I absolutely love this car and am eager to do some mods. First things first, anyone know of any that might improve gas mileage without killing power?

Congratulations - she is a beautiful car! My husband and I have 2014 Race Red California Specials and love them. Mine is a convertible and his is a coupe with the panoramic roof

His is stock and the only mod I did was put on Corsa GT500 Sport Axleback Quad exhaust and valance. Sure makes for a much more mean growl when you WOT - and when you want to be just normal growl - she just purrs along. Welcome. I have heard that a Cold Air Return and a tune wakes up the power. I haven't done that and not sure I will but it is tempting....but I have all the power I need.

Enjoy learning and doing your mods - neither my husband and are remotely mechanical so we have to pay to have things done. Luckily we know some good guys that don't charge and arm and a leg. Love the color you picked out. If I hadn't gone Race Red I think the Gray is gorgeous!

We bought ours used. Found mine first it was a birthday present from my hubby. Found 1/2 hour from home. He loved driving mine so much he wanted his own but he wanted the same - the race red GT/CS Premium - but the coupe. We live in WI so 2 convertibles didn't make sense. Found his at a Mercedes Benz Dealer just north of Atlanta GA. The guy traded it with only 4400 miles on it and bought one of those 100,000 2 seater convertible Mercedes. I got luck and spotted it - it was on there lot for only 2 weeks. Did all the dealing over the phone and felt if there wasn't anything wrong with it - it was a deal so took a road trip - traded in a Buick LaCrosse 2005 and drove the new 2COOLGT home. LOL - so we are practically twins. He was going to drive his in the winter - now has decided to keep it in the garage and only use it if the roads are clean and no salt. LOL - we have a 2001 Chevy S10 4x4 and we share it. He is retired and I work a mile from home so...not too many problems so far. He drives me to work if he has things to do and if not I drive myself back and forth. We are blessed. I just wish I had his navigation in mine! He wants my exhaust on his - so a mods to come up with this summer.

Just for sound - I would check into exhaust! It can make a world of difference. I haven't heard the stock 2016 but I bet there is something better out there!
