2009 Mustang
 
If You'd Like To Order A Specific 2009 Mustang, With Your Options & Your Model In Your Color/interior Combo, The Final Day To Do So Is December 7th - 2009

I Want To Do So, But Cannot Part With My 2003 Town Car Limited Edition With Every Option And Just 11,300 Miles On Her. If If If The Mustang Had Those Headlights That Could Be Set For 60 90 120 Or 18o Seconds To Stay Illuminated After You Left The Car, I'd Do It....but, Ford Sees Fit To Omit That Option Year After Year After Year From The Mustang Option Listing, And I Really Need That Feature.

SandyBoy great to see you on the site. Remember The Mustang, you may get tired of after awhile. The Lincoln Town Car now that's forever. 11,300 miles, outstanding.

It's where I live
 
It's not a city, like NYC or Pittsburg, but it's so-called suburbia, and like many we adjoin several other towns that are almost exact, therefore we are overloaded with commercial areas, shopping centers, and close to major routes overloaded with ton more retail, so you really do not have to travel for anything!
From December through late March I use the wife's Jeep Cherokee Limited 4X4 wagon. (2001 with 55,000 miles = absolute brochure flawless condition) and we share it, so the T.C. sleeps in the garage. thusly 11,000 miles. I really love the current Mustang GT convertible and it's a super car.
But, I MUST have the delay (and the length of delay adjustable) on any car, that I own. Once you get used to it - really, you would be surprised how much you would use it - and how much you would miss it, when you DO NOT have it. I cannot seem to warm up to the MK-S -- but I am going to take one out on an extended DEMO ride, soon. Not crazy 'bout the height of the thing, nor the styling, but I wanna see if it's better than a Town Car. I have my doubts.
My local Cadillac dealer sold a new 2009 STS to a buyer who put (as I do) every possible option on her. Then, he backed out of the deal. The car sits on the showroom floor, now, since October 11th. Window sticker I do believe is in the Eighties ! NO BUYER. Sad.

SandyBoy with all the current inventory the car dealerships have on hand that $80's number may go down to a more realistic figure. With the Big Three jst being summoned to Washington along with the head of the UAW, to explain the state of affairs for the "bail out money" prices falling may be sooner than later. I know your neck of the woods from my Toronto days and playing Jr.B hockey in a lot of your surrounding areas.

2009 Mustang
 
Sandy,

I have seen one or two postings on the internet of 2009 Mustangs with the headlight on/off delay you are seeking. I do not know if it is a dealer added option or an after market item that can be added. I would think it would be no big deal to have one added to the car system. Here is one ad that I ran into. Note that it specifies that the car has the headlight on/off delay option.

'' I know your neck of the woods from my Toronto days and playing Jr.B hockey in a lot of your surrounding areas.''

Do you recall any town's names ?

SandyBoy 11-15-2008 05:42 AM

Ray, that's a vastly different system. THAT system leaves the headlights ON for 30-seconds after you turn off the motor. That's it.

The Lincoln/Caddy system can be turned ON via the key fob as you approach the car, and upon leaving the car you can set the amount of time, for the delay-off to 30, 60, 90 or 120 seconds.

Keeping the Town Car
 
Cannot part with her. No 2009 or 2010 Mustang is showing up, here.

For what reason do anyone the headlight keep running after leaving the car in the first place? No matter 30 or 120 sec??
To have them light up as you approach the car I understand, as you can find it easier, but after leaving it?
We ( Volvo that is....) have a button on the key that lights up the car, in and out plus an additional lamp under the mirrors, giving a flood-light as you approach. I though that was more than enough.

I live on a dark street, across from a large county park. At night it is very dark here and I set it for 120 seconds (the max) and it lights my way to see the keys, and get in safely. It's one of those convenience item that once you have it you get use to it. It also works on High Beams, if you switch to that. Mine is set on automatic.

Approaching the car, and using the key fob thing a click to open the door locks will also tell the photogenic thingiee that it is DARK outside and turn on the headlights & taillamps to illuminate your way. It will also start the car and if I park & set the heater & seat warmers, in advance, I will enter a warmed up car, and have a warmed seat. It will also check the doors & make sure that they are locked. When i enter (and it's running) I have to insert the key into the ignition before I do anything. If i do not do that, the first time I step on the brake oedal - - the car will stall and not re-start until I insert the key.
This to keep anyone from breaking the glass to get into the running car & steal it. As soon as they push the brake pedal, she dies and will not restart.
If I puther in the garage, I must bring the clicker to open/close the garage door with me into the house, asI must use it to open the garage door, BEFORE remote starting the car. Can't run a car in a closed garage, ya know.
