    Hey everyone. I am the proud owner of a 2015 Mustang in competition orange. I bought it used with 1,600 miles on it this past January. Yes, only 1600 miles. I had originally asked for a yellow one with racing strips to be brought to the sales area but when I took it out, I wasn't happy. It was sluggish and the paint had not been well taken care of. As my wife and I were walking away, I passed the orange Mustang. I thought, let me take a look just for the heck of it. It still had new car smell in it. When I saw the mileage, I was shocked. I asked to take it out for a test and came home with it that night. It has the premium package or most of it with some funky options. My side mirrors have 3 arrows in each that illuminate in sequence with the rear turn signals. I have the 50th anniversary grill with the "corral" around the pony but nothing else other than a badge on the dash stating 50th anniversary.

    Looking forward to reading what you've done to your cars. Within a month, I'd put in the strut tower brace and hood struts instead of that goofy single bar to keep the hood up.

    Check out the build threads -- that will give a good idea of what a lot of us have done with the cars.

    I was going to suggest looking up your vin and getting a window sticker, but all the links I have/had for the stickers are dead, along with the google search on the subject. Perhaps your dealer could obtain one for you.

    We are a visual bunch ... we love pictures. :D

    YES ... go back to the dealer and ask them to print off a copy of the WINDOW STICKER for you ... sadly as Jim stated, we simple Ford owners no longer have access to window stickers on our own (except new cars still on dealer's lots).

    They can also save as a PDF and e-mail you a copy, that's what I've been having my sales guy do for all my used Fords ever since they started blocking access.

    Heck back when I could download window stickers, you could even look up ones for USED Fords. Can't remember how many years old they could be, but it was at least 5 or so.

    Oh and BTW ... WELCOME TO THIS GREAT SITE !!

    It says any 2008 & newer ... tried my 2013 Focus, 2014 Fusion, & 2016 Mustang and got the same message ...

    "Please check back later. The window sticker has not yet been released for this vehicle."

    ... for all three of them.

    Maybe the Ford site is down, will have to try again later.
