    The work to shift mustang gets harder and harder from now on.

    It bothers me the percentage of cars modified. Usually when people do that they are planning on keeping rather than update so those current owners might be a low percentage of the next wave for this model.

    The current car has dropped 10k. If the new car has any price increase the change over starts to become less friendly.

    I can understand dealers needing to commit to volume for launch, but specification and pricing is important for me while I am sitting on the fence.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    Gut feel makes me think MY18 dealer stock holding won't be high as this year was.

    We'd like to know how much the thing is going to be as well don't worry! Generally we never know MLP when ordering new model, doesn't matter if it's a Mustang or Focus

    Question on the recaros, are they still heated/cooled like the std seats?

    Also are these prices inclusive of LCT? Or is that added on after?

    Recaros DO NOT have heat/cool function and these prices are excluding LCT

    You would be taking a risk ordering any with the wheels, magneride or the recaros as these options are expensive, especially if your customer does not want them.

    Its a bit like ordering an FPV GT with 6 pot brembos without a signed order, these cars were a hard sell as people did not see the value in the extra stopping power.

    Are these prices EX gst?

    I've been dealing with it for 12 years, don't worry I know the story.

    Our gut feel is Recaro will be taken up a fair bit as well as Magneride, quite a few with both, even with the cost involved. And we do tend to up sell once the factory options are on the vehicle, it happens a lot on other models. Either way I will get it wrong, but usually pretty right.

    Forged wheels won't be ordered by me unless the customer places a fresh order, they are ugly and expensive, as well as stripe packs.

    Magnaride will be popular, if i was to order one id tick Magnaride.

    If Recaro's disable good features of the car i doubt many will order them, especially with how good the std seats are.

    Magnaride a given. Wheels, Iíll need to see them first. Recaros only if they arenít leather ( donít like leather seats ). No rear spoiler
