Ouch! If you paid $1100 less on that car you paid way too much. Even Ford was doing $2500 deals and dealers were throwing in another $1500 to move those slugs....do the math..

I've not used an analog speedo in quite some time. Since buying my 2011 Mustang GT, it has been hard for me to read the thing. 35, 45 and so on look like 30 and 40 to me. Also, I like seeing actual numbers for temps and so on. I've just ordered another ScanGauge II. I have one in my 1996 Dodge truck, my son drives that now, and he likes using the one in there. So I will have one for the Mustang here soon. You can set it up to read just about anything the on-board computer is keeping track of. With the 2011's new PCM, I'm not sure which or what gauges on the SCII will work. But I'm going to find out today when I connect the one from my son's truck to my Stang.

Don't tell me you've sold me a Sports car, but want to complain when I drive it that way.

All generic codes remained the same on 2011 Fords, you shouldn't have a problem reading any of them. Although the non-generic codes have been changed. But a scan gauge won't read anything but generics.

I wish Ford has a Heads up display like GM.
Miss that feature.

Too many car's, not enough time.

I have the same troubles as you. I find it very frustrating Ford only shows the MPH in debug mode. I maybe have to get a ScanGauge II and I would appreciate a reply on how it works.

Where do you plan to mount it?

Thanks

It's too bad your idea of straight is actually cockeyed in comparison to the rest of the general public...

You crack me up, you prove my points every time you respond. It is quite comical!


Back on topic...

I never really cared for heads up display in GM cars, it's a novel idea but it gets irritating when driving for extended periods of time.

Lets get started,this is the price diffference on the sticker between a 2010 and a 2011 GT...... 0.00 you paid 1,100 dollars less out the door and went out the door with a slow ass mustang. 2011 V6 would have saved you alot more cash, and got you better fuel economy. it would also be newer and cost THOUSANDS less. Maybe you didn't do as good of research as you thought.
You obviously haven't driven a 2010 gt or 2011 v6.

BTW, I enjoy my "slow ass mustang" every time I drive it.

Get a dashdaq if you want to datalog your vehicle, it mounts on your windshield and the wire can be easily hid on a mustang. Just have to watch where the obd data port connects, it faces down and can easily be hit when getting into the car.

I've driven both. That's why I have a 2011 GT! Have YOU driven a 5.0 lately:?:

Yup and wasn't impressed with the automatic or the exhaust note (wont be going automatic so it doesn't matter.) I'll be ordering one soon enough, but I'd still be happy with a 2010 all over again regardless of the bump in power (as long as the car was several thousand less than a 2011.)
