    Which radar detector?

    Take a look at Stinger DSi. I had one fit to my car - the card version. Benefit is that if stopped, the credit card size module can be withdrawn, held in a certain way and all the jamming software is removed! This means that any tests can be done and in theory you should be safe. Once back...

    Fuel filler problems - can it be by passed?

    I wrecked the GT

    Glad to hear you are ok - testimony to how strong these cars really are. Surprised that the ins co wants £60k. We wrote a black 600RE off (4 weeks old and 500 mls on clock) and I know that it was bought as a write off for £13K. If you want to send me a PM maybe we can figure out a way to buy...

    Is a Heritage worth it?

    I have a really simple view on this - a Heritage is the same car but a different colour scheme? Why therefore are they so much more than the cost of a professional colour change? My car is red but with a few thousand $ could easily transform to a Heritage...... I said that my view was simple...

    OEM tyres

    Sorry not replied sooner, seem to be spending more time away from home these days....:frown I fit 345/35-19 to the rear - the car sits well and you would never guess that they are not OEM. The tyres fit the arches better than stock in my opinion and makes the car look menacing from the rear...

    OEM tyres

    Many thanks for reply. Goodyear may very well not have the Ford GT on priority list, that said I have to say that its a bit of a low down trick to play. Hopefully Goodyear will see the light and play ball in the near future. There was me thinkin that I had an excellent deal on the...

    OEM tyres

    I had ordered 4 rear tyres from Kwik Fit several months ago and said that I would update when I had received them. Today I had a call from Kwik Fit who said that they are going to refund the payment that I have made as Goodyear will not be making any more tyres of this size. :confused I was...

    New car ahead of schedule

    When you post threads like this they are flame magnets and I would not be too surprised if you get negative criticism. :thumbsdow Its not often that I will side with anyone but I agree 100% with DBK, sell the car if you are not happy. Yes, the GT's have their faults but take it from me, I have...

    Transmission 1-2 Shift Grind

    The GTR gearbox is fraught with problems. They have been known to fail and they are not as good as the hype suggests. I sold my UK 2009 because I just got fed up with it. Put it into reverse when cold and nothing, nothing, nothing then thump, its engaged...same when going into first when cold...

    General tips for new owners

    Great advice listed.... Two things in addition from me: 1. be careful when changing into right hand lane - visability poor and quite a large blind spot as a result 2. more importantly you will always feel good about yourself having realised a childhood ambition of owning a GT. For that added...
