    in the week I've had it now I have discovered a fundamental "problem" with the car. It's almost impossible to drive it slowly

    A great write-up on the ins and outs of the current gen mustang. I'm pleased to hear it is exactly what you wanted.

    I have this problem with my Lincoln, too. Although I now suspect you wouldn't be a fan of the clutch.

    Spring can't come around these parts soon enough...

    I live in the land of eternal summer. Yesterday it got to 80, but next week It may freeze at night. Our problem is that for about 6 months of the year it gets to over 100 every day. Nothing rusts here, but the paint and the dashboard top pay the price. You deliberately park in the shade even if it is clear across the lot from where you are going.
    My MkVIII is perfect underneath, but the dash has a small crack and the paint needs to be redone. Rubber parts dry out too. My rear window seal is all dried out and I need to find trim for it. Does anything that would cover the rubber exist?

    Unfortunately, the rear window trim is actually molded into the glass itself. It's not technically replaceable without doing the window along with it. If you search for "lasagna" you'll find a lot of discussion on the matter. (usually the trim "ripples" before it becomes weather checked. Yours may have skipped this stage.)

    I know on the window, but it's still solidly in place and the inside is good. What I'm looking for is a trim piece that I can use to cover the rubber to hide and protect it. Since door molding is flat it won't work. I was looking for something that was slightly hollow on the inside to fit over it.

    My ecobost Flex has a nice torque curve and power down low, better than my 97 Mark VIII LSC had down low.
