    looking at buying a 2017 GT350R with 5k miles. Still has 1 year left on the factory warranty. Do i need to remove the front splitter if i get it shipped in an enclosed trailer? I'll also need to get the rear seat installed. Where can i buy one? What all should i look at when test driving it? Thanks!!!!

    Seen this as a kit sometime back, and now it's discontinued...

    It will provide a parts list on the pdf-install sheet to start ordering gt350 version parts. You might have to pay $$$ to re-stitch a set of rear gt350 seats with matching red thread.

    You might look into an extended warranty with all the issues these are having. Just my 2 cents worth....:)

    Amazing to see that just a couple years ago the 350R’s were in the $90’s and now used ones are going for low $50’s. Good luck with your purchase. I’m thinking about adding one to the stable as well.

    I would definitely purchase an extended warranty. Also make sure to pull a carfax and Oasis report to make sure the car hasn't had issues. As far as the rear seat kit Ford discontinued them in the summer of 18, I actually lucked out and was able to get one of the last ones for my R.
