Drivetrain Is The Manual Transmission Reliable?

  1. Wow... That blue was my second choice, and it looks awesome with my stripe!
  2. Your stripe? (wink) I've been sporting it since last summer. ;)
  3. Ha ha! I love MY stripe and everything about the car! Well, except for the lack of automatic headlights.... I had a 1996 Chevy Beretta and automatic headlights were standard. On the Mustang, I have nearly all of the options, but no automatic headlight? WTF?

    Oh, and the transmission is holding up fairly well. It was getting difficult to shift when it was 10 below...
  4. If you have HIDs, they have auto headlights. It's the farthest click to the right on the switch, at least it is on my Canadian '12.
  5. I think I have the HIDs. I am truly not sure.

    My headlight switch has 3 settings and no fog lights. I saw a YouTube video and it looks like I can swap the switch out, to make it work, but I'm not too sure about that.

  6. Hmmm....well, the switch isn't too expensive so, it might be worth a try though, I'd be curious why Ford would put a light sensor in cars w/o this option. Little things do change. My car has Tech, HID, blah blah, everything so, I'm not always sure what other option loads get.

    ...and use trim tools, not goddamn car key to pop the switch, cheez, video guy's an amateur....:)
  7. Haha. That's one of the things that made me worried if it would work.

    The only other thing different about the switch is that it is for fog lights too. That's my best guess why I don't have automatic headlights.

    I didn't look up the price before now. $25 is not bad. I'm going to have to research it a little more and try it out.
  8. All 2013+ cars have HIDs standard.

    As long as it has the sensor, yer you'll get a switch for some manly driving lights for later, hehe
  9. After everything I've read Id go with an auto. They are apparently a very tough trouble free tranz.
  10. Wow, that's definitely on my to-do list.
    Thanks for the link!
