I had to wait for the production of the 2007's to start and order one. They put the arrival date in late August/Sept, Is this realistic?
The major problem I am ripping myself apart is the issue of v6/gt. I am only 20 but I have around 25k to spend on the car so the issue at hand is whether to get essentially a fully loaded V6 or save a few more thousand for the GT. My gut instinct is telling me to save for the GT but then reality sinks in and I think about things such as gas mileage and insurance. The insurance premium for a 20 year old (clean license) is insane from what I have read. Anyone have similiar situations and don't mind sharing information such as insurance payments or cost of the car or any other advice possible would be great. Anyone have any experience with dealers in the Westchester, NY/tri state area?
I have been a huge mustang fan since I was little and I finally hope to be getting one. I just cant bring myself to commit to the V6 when I know the GT is just a few thousand more.Thanks for all the help.
I know im jumnping in with every1 else, but you'll regret it if u dont get the GT. Insurance isnt much less nor is the gas mileage(I get 24 on the highways, and 22 avg mpg) much more on the V6. Fully loaded dont mean jack, unless they have new cool options like massaging backrests, or auto pilot
. Nothing is in these cars that you cant remove and upgrade? Stereo, seats, interior packages.
Nothing can really compare to the feel behind a v8. So you might get a stereo upgrade or leather seats, but fact of the matter is once you get the car, you're stuck with it or you'll have to take a huge hit in your wallet to trade it in for a GT.
Don't get me wrong I have nothing wrong with a V6. I loved my '01 coupe. But when I got my 01 coupe I knew I would be selling it as soon as I could afford the GT.
But it's up to you. My only advice is take a test drive in both, and you'll be sold. OR not. Either way, at least you're a mustang lover!:smilie
In college I went through maybe 1 tank a month. I walked everywhere. Only needed to drive when I went to the supermarket or something.
Insurance is always up in the air. I have never been pulled over nor do I have a police record. So my insurance might be lower than most...then again I live in JErsey. So who knows. For a young kid, I don't tihnk it will make much of a diff, V6 or v8, they are both sports cars.
