    I was told that less than 25 VINs have been assigned.

    Are you saying they could create 40k wheels a year if ford would open up this option to every 500?

    I said what I said and nothing more.

    CR makes more than 40k wheels per year and have during the entire GT350 production run. Their current capacity is quite a bit more than you seem to believe.

    Carbon Revolution expands operations to supply 150,000 carbon fiber wheels annually

    ON EDIT: Current production may only be around 30k per year with the number gradually ramping up to the 150K by 2022 - if current plans/goals are successful.

    I'm not sure how much of my comment is incorporated into this exchange, but my comment om limiting thw CFTP cars stems from more of a potential procurement deal for a predicted amount of sales, rather than manufacturing capability. Maybe that extends to other parts as well.

    I have been a member here for years, (Previously Nathan'sTsi before the associated email account was hacked to by FIFA points on xbox live) and I have a ton of respect for DBK, Tob and 13C0bra -Nick, amongst others. Part of me is just bitter about how some of this shakes out, but I will put in the leg work to try and not buy something else. I imagine Nick is out of allocations for this year, and I don't think I want to wait.

    I received this information from Kyle at FP.
    I was hesitant to order the CF instrument panel because I was getting conflicting information. One source indicated it was an appliqué and another said it was an overlay, so I decided to go to the source for an answer.
    I earlier asked him about the availability of the air oil separator and he had to do a bit of research and he got back to me this morning.

    I asked him this question.
    "Do you know if the Carbon Fiber instrument panel is actually a carbon fiber part or is it a metal part with a vinyl or carbon fiber overlay, wrap or appliqué?"

    Here is his answer.
    The panel is real Carbon as far as I know.

    I have news on the Air Oil Separators.
    Ford Performance Parts will offer the 5.2L GT500 separator that is found on the Carbon Fiber Track Pack available for the base car owners.
    I do not have an eta just yet, this should be ready to go once cars begin to be delivered

    I travel in the states a decent bit, and that seems like an accurate statement. We will be down here in TX until that gets messed up.

    Nick,

    You don't owe anybody an explanation of your business model and the details of these sales. This exchange is simply ridiculous. Your company, do as you like and move on.

    I just called. With my order # and dealer code they were only able to tell me that I'm not scheduled at this time. "Matt" said the Handling Package will come with the 4S and no camber plates.

    WTF?

    Ugh, off with the handling pack then. I will just pickup splitters and plates on my own.
