    I understand your point,
    FPV even back in the good days if you can call it that they were/are scarce, anyway not a deal breaker but they are getting common to me (some think great) - to me a purchase as such is special being its a performance product not catergerised as a white goods/daily but maybe I should re think its stance in the market, more and more will be on the raod maybe it will lose its old aura and be like a taxi terminology as once used

    Were similar and not - similar having utes no matter the variant, as I said the white goods 4x4 I have kills the pony for my daily needs, I could have up to 4 and 5 passengers any given afternoon, (weekends likely a number of times due to football already started so the wife/daughter/friend come along) throw crap in the back, their bags/sports gear/shopping/Bunnings visits from plants to 1/4ton of top soil/sand/cement bags/wife buying furniture here there anywhere to pick up - beach/dune fun x4 times a year/2nd son will start using it P's about to get.
    So to consider a pony for me its a weekender, a special like Sprint/T3 driving pleasure as you say so unless I change my whole lifestyle which isn't going to happen this is where I'm coming from, were all different.
    So a GT to me right now means nothing, even though I have huge admiration for the past re the marque I have no vested interest of the today, like you Falcon takes/took my heart but not this, it means nothing, IF there was something special I would consider purely drawn in because of that but you know me.....I'd have to test the manual as you know stuffed or not and if its that bad sounds like I won't end up in one...ho hum, like I said more likely in a Euro/Jap more common hipo lol.....
    As I said. If itís a particular function you require thatís different. How many you see on the road is not a negative. As discussed, the personalisation opportunity offer distinction if you want to stand out, but to me itís not that car.

    I donít know how you can be so dismissive of something you havenít sampled. Do that first.
    History is a statement, the future is a question.

    and this is it spot on with American product/s be it parts cars etc.....
    At times it is woeful, I've seen it in Aftermarket Parts for decades and then their cars have been pretty ordinary.
    Worse for us being a Import - for then you got to deal with your dealer.
    Some of these Ponys have been shocking, the beater my Dealer has used for years I visited quite a few times for minor touch ups/repairs, he has loved the regular adjustments etc showed me around quite a few.
    Our old forum has had some woeful ones, one member recently was refunded his full purchase price his Pony shocking once he dug deep in getting it checked out by Independent parties then back to dealer.
    Lucky there's a few ok ones like Colville's and Norms convert.

    I think you will find the issues mainly concentrated around some of the earlier Mustangs brought in. Even then, many were very good.The majority more recently are very good according to the enthusiast groups and clubs that I am involved with. Im not saying the odd bad one still exists but I think its safe to say they are definitely in the minority.

    Lets be clear here. They are no Audi or Merc, but they are pretty good.

    you said it compared to euros and japs for that matter.
    That fully refunded one was a MY18 fyi, delivered mid last year, sure thats a worst case scenario but there are plenty more that are not club members and the like.
    Why do you think so many items in the US have Lifetime WTY, when you have 350+M westerners who are so important of themselves thats how it goes.
    Do you know in the Parts game over there ala Repco for eg, most if not all customer failed products are replaced without much question, say a shock absorber water pump etcetc is just replaced to a customer without any third degree as here.
    Their product is pretty ordinary full stop, never rated it that high - and they be little the Chinese ffs because they are jealous.
    Anyway enough.
    Damn your Boss is a killa.
