2.3 ecoboost and 5.0 Ti VCT V8 will be available in Europe. There is a 3d model of the euro spec on the ford website you can find with a bit of digging : https://mustang.ford...omopanel#/en-gb

Also check out the mustang6G forum

Yeah I know where your coming from with the current generation being low prices for what you get, but think of all the re-engineering that's gone into this one as it's a new car from the ground up, plus the 'old fashioned' rear axle is cheaper than engineering the new Independent rear suspension, plus the cost of offering a RHD version. Plus European safety standards are a lot higher than the US, so with the focus ST it automatically met the US standards as it was designed in Europe.
All in all the cost of all the quality improvements will probably have knock on effects in price, both state side and other markets.
It's one of the reasons Ford hasn't bothered with a global conversion before.
I really wish it is going to be around 25-30000 but I doubt it will be

For those saying it should compete with the brz/gt86 price wise, personally I think ford will be aiming more at the a5/3series/C class with the mustang as I've seen a rumour that there will be a large (3.0?) diesel, and size wise, it's not a small car, it's about the same size/ shape of the coupe variants mentioned above. A well spec'd A5 coupe 3.0 tdi can cost 45000 so I doubt the mustang will be cheap. Probably not in the 40-50K bracket but not far off.
That's my logic :P but may be wrong

Hello again Harrison.


I am not very sure what you mean about "the slot in the circular part of the mirror". If you are saying that the cover probably won't fit, i just took some images from a dry-run with the cover in place and it seems to be sitting nicely.




I did get your PM, and i've done all of your suggestions. Strangely the rain sensor works fine, so i'm starting to believe that is either the switch or as Rob suggested, the PJB.


I'll probably have a look this weekend.


Just a correction to my previous post, when i switch to "auto" nothing happens. not even the sidelights come on.

Okay guess your mod to the mirror works better than mine lol, was viewing on iPhone before so only had a small image. I didnt go to the extent of cutting away at the mirror but seems like the plastic cover is a better fit on the windscreen as mine was. All I did was file some grooves on those three small circular parts to slide over the original mounting but this left a small gap around the plastic trim. I was not sure if your modification would bring the plastic too close to fit but looks good :)


About the switch, are you sure you have the right loom going to the switch?? as im sure knowing ford they have soooo many looms that do different things for different models. If you look at my guide of fitting the submarine lighting, you can see the wiring to the connector i had, best to check if yours is the same.


If not then I would say probably a faulty switch. when in the auto setting without the rain sensor fitted the either the side lights or dipped beam was constantly on, i can't remember which though.



oops my bad, indeed that switch will not fit. Harrison i wouldn't mind getting the same info too bro i will be fitting this mod soon.


George, the focus switch on ebay is £45+ but i would still recommend trying to different switch first, if the rain sensor works nothing should be missing or not working for the lights.



Harrison have you got any pics of yours fitted? has anyone added in some tints to hide away the cover of the rain sensor?


What would you like to know mate?? ELM options or just general info??


also i will have a look for some pics, I planned to use some black vinyl wrap cut to shape around the sensor mount, but it will be hard to cover the actual mount as it needs to be glued to the screen and any tint/wrap will not adhere. The best thing to do would be to have the windscreen changed to the one with the built in tinted section.
