Trying To Decide On A New Car
Posted 30 March 2010 - 01:21 AM
Is it going to be the fastest, best handling car? no. For ~$25k? maybe
With the way I drive will I actually get 30mpg? absolutely not
I am being realistic I think. Having the options to redline and get 300hp, or take it easy and get decent fuel economy is really what I am looking for. If after taking it for a spin and being anything like what reviews I have read, I think I'm going to order one.
Until then I have to suffer through a Mariner. Focus was up and no more big lease discounts on them since they are selling pretty well. I will miss that focus even knowing it was the european's retarded half brother.

I had one question, and Twisted I might just end up sending you a PM...
Only performance option I was looking at was the 3.31 rear instead of the stock 2.73. Its about $400 add on and I'm not sure if its worth it. Both are LSD.
Otherwise I'm getting the v6 premium, kona blue, with the mustang collectors package (wheels, billet grille, and other random crap) should be around 25k with a-plan discount.

V6 Premium, Mustang collectors of america edition, 3.31:1 LSD rear diff. With A plan it came to just over 25k, which is about 3k below msrp and 1k below invoice
Now the dreaded 6-8 week wait, luckily it gets built about 20 min from my house so delivery time shouldn't be long. Will post pictures when it gets here

it's "worth" is really quite dependent on the gearing of the transmission and the powerband of the motor... when it comes down to it just driving it would let you know if it requires more aggressive gearing or not.

no worries man, I got it anyway. It is still supposed to be built next week, though that might be delayed from that damn volcano causing part shortages. Pics will be up as soon as the keys are in my hand.
make sure they give you 2 keys with it, then buy a transonder blank on ebay (about 20 bucks) and make a 3rd, i learned that the hard way when i lost my spare key and had to pay 200 dollars for a new one
but if you have 2 keys you can program your own, so thats why i keep 3 now, so if i lose one i still have 2 and can do it myself
