Any one have views on Diamond brite this paint protection is offered by the ford dealer.

Ok mine is a two year old gt convertible but was almost talked into that and for a convertible the seat stuff.
I like polishing a pride and joy, sad?

The last time I was offered Diamond Bright at a main dealer, it cost £300.00. You can buy it on E-Bay for around £30.00.
A few months ago a Mini dealer wanted £500.00 for a similar product that they added to an options list on a new Mini. When I pointed this out they tried to convince me it was worth it as it added value come resale time. Oddly enough I took my business elsewhere.
All I do is carefully wash my cars, then use a good quality wax and paint seal such as autoglym.

So, i’m sticking with it. Dealer will supply and fit the optional Ford Performance GT350 Strut Brace too available as an accessory for Mustang. Not Bullitt stamped, but at least will have a brace.

Told today my car has been Gate Released, so all built and presumably shortly on its way...should be with me before Xmas!

Hi folks, I’m new to this thread and have a Bullitt on order which hopefully will be here before Christmas!! Am I right in thinking that the UK cars are missing the dash gauges, the strut brace and have a different LSD? I presume they have the GT350 manifold and throttle body but due to emissions it’s less powerful, in which cas a quick remap by DMS in Southampton will rectify that and more. I have looked at the photos of the two UK cars advertised already on the trader and the Bullitt does difinitely have the extended leather with green stitching around the centre console as is also apparent on the configurator.

Would this have any effect on your insurance?

Yeah, your right about the three differences, are you going to do any paint treatment? My nullity was committed to build two weeks ago but should only be here in march... Apparently.

Definitely no paint treatment, having been in the trade this is a money spinner, a good Carnauba wax and job done. I’ve had an AMG GTR Mercedes, 911 GTS and the like and that’s all they need. I’m going for very light window tinting, IRS full kit by Steeda, front strut brace and 25mm wheel spacers all round should look the nuts. Once it’s run in I’m going for a better air intake and a DMS re map who reckon 500BHP is no problem which will give a far more linear power curve to and even more torque.
Not bothering with lowering springs as I think traditionally the Bullitt wasn’t low and it would make it look too boy racer’ish!

23mm spacers for the rear. 25mm for the front.

Unless you want to mess by cutting studs etc.

Good advice, thx for that. Steeda tell me 25mm will do the job perfectly without cutting studs but I will double check with them. Do you think the spacers alone without lowering springs will improve the look?

Steeda should know their onions. However the general advice on the forums has always been 23mm....

I am 25 front, 23 rear. And lowered.





Many people go much lower in the rear, but I like this stance.

Well thanks again, yours looks perfect to me, how much is it lowered by? I have the Magneride option so will need Progressive spring to suit the Magneride option, what would you recommend?

I'm on a Roush coilovers, about +10mm from their min setting.

So, I'm not 100% sure, sorry. I'd guess about -20mm from stock.

As for Springs, I've used Eibach on the stang and really liked them, however with mine being a 2016 it hasn't got Magneride and I'm not upto date on the options.

The M6G forums are the place to go and ask. smile

Thx, I’m going to pursue your settings as that is exactly the stance I want. That other forum is far to complicated and confusing to get involved with! When I eventually get the car the work will be done the following day and I will post some pictures, thx again!

Mines arrived woohoo

No dials in centre of dash

No strut brace in engine bay

On the up side it sounds cloud9

I've not pushed it too much so far, so can't comment to much on the performance yet.

Unlikely. My current GT Convertible has a range of modifications including:

Roush Cold Air Intake
Roush Axle Back Exhaust
Pedders Extreme Coil Overs
MAK Rennen 19” alloys
Full Body Wrap

None of which had any effect on the insurance premium and all declared.

My Bullitt has landed in the UK. I tracked the ship it was on all the way across the Atlantic! biggrin

Should be with me sometime next month. I have the Dealer fitting the Ford Performance GT350 Strut Brace available as an Accessory.

Not going to mess with it really other than that. May have a map at some stage, but that’ll be it.

Nice Bullitt MB, have you any plans for mods? I think they really need wheel spacers to finish the amazing look and maybe a very light window tint all round, what do you think?

Yes with not much success fortunately, there have been two on the Autotrader for over two weeks, one at 52k and one at 55k and none sold. The 52k one will take 50k which as it has Magneride is enough of a premium to buy breakfast! These cars are for people who want a great rare car that I doubt will depreciate much over the years particularly once Ford have stopped producing them. Maybe in many years to come they will be collectible who knows but definitely not a car for flipping!
