    It probably is a bargain, but when you start talking about $35K+ for what is a toy or second car for pretty much all the guys that want them you start reaching a point where a fair number of people can't afford them in addition to other things that are competing for their money.

    ^^^ Hmmm...about the toy car comment...not sure if serious. Everyone one of my Mustang's, including my wife's, has been a daily driver. And most of the local Mustang guys also use their cars for DD duties.

    Either way, I still think the Mustang is the performance bargain of anything out there right now. That's why you see a ton of them on the streets. But once you get to the premium model and start adding options, the price gets well above $40K pretty easily.

    Where I live Mustangs are not daily driven year round but only by a handful of people. They are second cars that see 2.5-3 season duty (May-October). Rarely see a Mustang and even less often a GT in the winter here.

    Oh, yeah, I see you are from up north. I understand your comment now.

    Yeah, down here in the south, we really don't have to worry about harsh winters, so it's Stang time year 'round! :biggrin:

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I read about this and the fact that it comes with paddle shifters almost alleviated my internal shame of actually considering and automatic!

    And then I read something about there being a "Level 2" performance/track package (to compete with the 1LE option for the Camaro SS) that is only available for the 6-speed manual. The only thing confirmed so far is both front and rear wheels are 0.5" wider with the Level 2 selection.

    I'm seriously considering a 2018 GT and i'm lucky if I put 1500 miles a year on my personal cars. I currently have a 16 Scat Pack and have 2900 miles on it since I bought it 2 years ago. so it does happen, I traded my 13 GHIG GT in with just at 10,000 miles at the 3 year mark.


    I have been waiting for Ford to step it up before buying a S550 Mustang and i'm hoping this new one is impressive, the 6th gen Camaro guys have been getting a bit too cocky.

    Does the drag race mode void the warranty?

    Only if something breaks when you use it. LOL!!

    Seriously though, I bet it's for "off road use" only. And if you use it on the street the warranty doesn't cover it. And if you are on a race track, the warranty doesn't cover the car.

    There was no better time in my life than when I drove my '08 year round. I would like to get a GT350 winter beater in a few years. Only problem is I'll need 19" winter tyres...
