  1. I understand exactly what the car was built for, and I understand exactly how the paddle shifters work, have them now and had them in the past. But you'll not convince me that a stupid knob is appropriate on the center console to engage the transmission. I've used it recently and hated it. My friend who ordered a new Expedition didn't realize it came with the knob and he's really disappointed; says he hates it. I don't mind the automatic one bit, especially being an occasional "cars and coffee" crowd member that you disparage, BUT NOT A KNOB! Just sayin'....
  2. "And again, the car was designed to be very fast on a track. Which is really cool. If you want your shifter for cruising to cars and coffee car show, buy another car that better fits your style and stop whining on here." I don't care that it's an automatic, I JUST DON'T WANT A KNOB! And I'm not whining, just stating a fact. I like resting my forearm on the shifter; on a knob, not so much. Maybe I can get Weather-Tec to build a shifter to fit in the cup holder like they do the cell phone bracket
  3. Agree! And having been in my friends new Expedition a few times now with the shift dial/knob/selector or whatever the thing is, I can say it's a deal breaker for me and the new 500. It just doesn't work, at least for me. It's like being in a Tux with no shoes....just sayin'.....
  4. I agree. Having owned an '07 black SGT I've paid attention to their prices over the years. Some other things to affect the price are the wheels, the interior, sound system, stripe condition and things like that. Although these cars seem to be worth much more to us, the owners, in reality a pristine '07 is as Mongoose says above.
  5. While your talking to Ford, try and convince them to put a gear shift back instead of that stupid knob. As long as they're going to add a manual option they might as well just put the shifter back as well. Unless....they're going to add a manual option with a knob shifter
  6. Yep, they were a Shelby factory install. It's been a while since that iteration has been made so might be a tough find. If you're planning on keeping the car, I'd suggest getting them painted on and never have to worry about it again. The color is Guardsman Blue.
  7. I may have misspoke....the mounting hardware matches the paint color but the struts themselves are black with logos on them. If you scroll up in this thread you'll see my pic.
  8. The white ones I got matched perfectly, fortunately, but I can see where you might have to be a bit more careful. The install is much quicker than you might think. I can't believe how much nicer it is with them installed.
  9. Steven, Personally, I prefer the new automatics over the manuals. And with the paddle shifters one gets the best of both worlds. But, they really need to rethink that silly transmission knob instead of a gear shift...just sayin'....................
  10. I can answer that on the 2011 there was no cutting or drilling. I did have to loosen the hood hinge bracket, as I recall, but that was no big deal. Just do one side at a time.
  11. Very cool. Is it primered, or is it just fiberglass?
  12. Good point; and it would always make a great wall hanging until you might need it.
  13. You are set! I was afraid the shipping would be outrageous...ouch.
