    New ride

    I forgot to let you guys know, I bought my 3rd Ecoboost powered Ford a few months back now. Just to annoy all you V8 lovers I got an MY17 Mustang Ecoboost Fastback manual in Grabber blue. Lucky me working at a dealership I changed the rims over from the pox 19's to the staggered 19s from the V8.

    It's been a lot of fun so far, planning a few things in the near future.

    Nathan.

    That is such a killer colour on the mustang.

    Please keep us updated with the ownership experience, I and I'm sure many others, would be very interested to see what the Ecoboost is like to live with in something as iconic as the mustang.

    I foresee many comments from people similar to the xr8 vs xr6t arguements haha

    Good luck with it mate. That is a great little motor. Not a V8 but still a great motor.

    Sorry Nathan late to post.
    Love the colour and the 6-speed manual is a little ripper, choice of rims again excellent.
    Hope you have many pleasurable miles, have you driven an RS for comparison?
    I've always wondered how the EB stang feels in comparison to the Focus RS.

    Sidebar,
    Would you know how much 2017 Mustang inventory Ford has left?
    not interested in buying, just curious to know how the sell down is going.....

    Hey there, sorry about my late reply!

    Thanks for the kind words It is no way as quick as an RS, well it doesn't have the surge that an RS does, plus the launch of the AWD, but it has more than enough power stock. It is getting better the more it gets km's on it too. Looks wise, it leaves the Focus for dead. I am really close to buying a COBB tune, just waiting a few more months.

    There is still a decent amount left dealer stock, zero Ford, HOWEVER, particular spec, say, you want Grabber, manual with a painted roof, that sort of stuff is becoming hard work, and with the price of the new one, we are seeing a lot of deals done on MY17 because of the value they bring.
