  1. So its been a year and couple months, This car is absolutly incredible. There is not a time where i have regreated this purchase. The engine is still solid at 47225 Miles. I drive this car aggressivly. I still get looks and complements.No Regreats
  2. im 21, i pay $3500 CAD a year, full coverage.
  3. I bought my 08 about 1 year ago, I am very proud to own this car at such a young age. i will never sell this car.
  4. to give you an idea for the 07-09 airbag cover, I bought mine for $800 CAD in June.
  5. Why would anyone buy anything g other than a KR? It is the best sound on this car. Unless your looking for something obnoxiously loud... KR exhaust would be best
  6. i want to just get a used Whipple 2.9L, just waiting till i see a good deal somewhere...
  7. Hi guys, So i have owned my 08 GT500 for about 6 months now and i thought i would do a full owners review. I will break up my review into a couple of different sections. About me: I am in the 20-24 age bracket, Currently a full time student. When i was looking for a car i was looking for something that had both looks and power and a daily driver, i am one of those guys that go to local car meets and such. I ended up having to choose between a Modded Evo 10 or a Stock 2008 GT500. I ended up with the GT500 mostly because of the Shelby Prestige and the RWD. About the Car: I Purchased a 2008 GT500 Vista Blue/ White Stripes, I am the second owner and it had 42,200 miles upon purchase. The car was in perfect condition upon receiving it and has all the TBS up to date including clutch. OK, here is where the review starts: The first thing i am gonna say about this car is that it is extremely roomy inside. I am 6"4 and my head has plenty of room still, The seats are very comfortable and have all the adjustable functions that you would need, the Shift knob is in the perfect location and doesn't feel like its awkward. The materials/looks/feeling of the interior itself is a bit disappointing. I think the car could have been improved in those aspects but to be fair its more of a sports car than luxury. The one thing i did not test before buying the car, The CD Player did not work and currently still doesn't work which is annoying, i can live with it though. The stock Audio system "shaker 500" is good, but a little more bass would make it perfect. The car can comfortable fit 4 people, i often have a full car when i go out with friends. Now for the fun part, The driving experience. Now i admit, i have not driven many cars, but The Shelby is just God like when it comes to pure power. never have i ever once had trouble with keeping up with anything. I have really really bad habits when i drive my car, I am just "trigger happy" i cant seem to keep my foot off the gas its just so much fun, this also results me in having to fill the car up all the time... I read many reviews that say... "o a mustang cant turn"... i really don't understand this statement at all... Note, i have never been on any racing course or track, but for street purposes the handing is acceptable, i would go as far and say its perfect. The car is so easily controllable... I often find myself drifting around corners at stops because its just so easy and fun to do. Let me point out that I'm not a street racer, i don't go out looking for people and such, i have no tickets or anything... i do admit to redlight races tho but it cant be helped. anyways back to the car. Now lets talk about some mechanical things, as of recently, shift to my reverse gear causes a grind, now it is avoidable by shifting to 4th than reverse but it is an annoyance of somewhat. my Ford Warranty expired 1-2 months before the problem occurred and it doesn't really bother me enough to spend money to fix it. The engine is perfect, Ford really did take it to another level. The engine is BulletProof, I redline all the time. never once has the car had any engine related issues. The Car is currently 46600 miles and it is running strong, I must admit i really push my Shelby on every drive but i am a firm believer that these cars are meant to be enjoyed. Anyways I'm curious to read all your Owner Reviews. BTW i know my review sucks and i missed things... P.S. Cleaning the car is a mission.
  8. No one has this problem or am I in the wrong section
  9. Hi, I am the second owner of a 08 GT500 which currently has 74,000KM (46,000 Miles). The Clutch TBS has been Performed on my car at 25,000KM (15500 Miles). When i received the car at 68,000 KM everything was perfect, no problems. Months later (now) about 1500KM ago, my Rear gear starts to Grind when you shift to it. This is avoidable by first Shifting to 4th Gear which stops the synchro than shifting to Reverse. Right now it don't bother me as i just shift to 4th before i shift to reverse but i am wondering is this a big problem or can it be simply fixed? My Warranty ran out 4 months ago and i haven't taken it in to ford dealer Mechanic. Does anyone have any insight to this problem, It would be much appreciated.
  10. How does he make the car shine like that in the second picture... dam.
  11. Thanks for this thread, it really helped me on my install, took me roughly 1 hour. My COA is a wooden frame, signed in 2011. is that normal?
  12. Vaughan, right next to Wonderland. i have a 08 Vista blue with white stripes.
  13. i know how you feel, i just bought mine and its in a heated storage facility. waiting for spring so i can finally drive it. i live like a hour from you. you plan on taking it to Ertefa in spring?
  14. get the 07-09 gt500 if the clutch TSB is done. if not get the 2010.
