The only money I have spent on my Bullitt is common maintenance items (Oil, Filter, etc). I have replaced the battery and will be replacing belts soon (no issues they are just getting old).

This may be the most reliable car I ever owned.

I think this is OEM for our Bullitts? The Ford stealership wanted $1,000.00 for a set of 4 installed!

This is why I never go to dealerships. Its outrageous pricing. I'll pay for labor if needed. If its something I can't do, that some one with training can, then yes of course that's justified. But what they try to charge for parts is criminal. In this modern age with INTERNET we can all go online and see prices. So when a dealer quotes some crazy parts price, you can quickly see they are ripping you off.

Needed an additional key of wife's 2010. Dealer asked $116 just for the key.

Brought on ebay for <$20 and it works perfect.

Actually, I bought several keys and several keyfobs (Bullitt type) just to have around in case they are needed.

I hear ya, and with YouTube there is lots of training videos too. When I had a noise coming from my transmission and I thought it was my throw out bearing I got a bid for $2,800.00 for a clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing replacement from my local Ford Stealership. On Ebay I bought my OEM stuff for $875.00 and a few hours of watching YouTube I was ready to tackle the job. It turned out to be a bad Pilot bearing and leaking rear seal "$48.00". I putzed on my Bullitt for about 1 month to get the job done during the cold winter months.

Put a tire gage in the console and pull the bulb.

I have changed wheels several times on my Mustang. Last two times used the valve stem mounted TPMS sensors from American Muscle. One set would not train, I ended up calling American Muscle they were very helpful, said to let the air out, re-inflate wheels and they should train. That did not work.

I called the manufacturer , they said to remove the valve stems, let the air completely out, let the car sit for 10 minutes or so, re-install the valve stem and air. That procedure sounded weird but worked perfect.

Re training with the Ford tool is an easy procedure.

Definitely prefer the valve stem to the bands. We also own an Audi, it has a hub mounted TPMS with no sensors in the wheels at all. I wish all cars had this system, makes wheel changes much easier. Just install wheels/tires and its good to go, no re-training etc.

I like messing with wheels and would have bought an 06 Mustang if I had known about the federally mandated TPMS starting in 07.

My new Michelin Pilot Super Sports are on, what a difference in sound! I have a little truck "Power Ranger" that has mud tires on that sound quieter on the highway then did my 6 year old Nitto's 555's did. They got so hard in time that they "singed" on the road, and the traction was gone too. Im sure the Super Sports would do the same in 6 years..
