V6 vs. V6 premium

Do you think its worth the extra money to get the premium package? I am pricing a V6 with manual and the 3.31 LS axle as the only option, its downright cheap! I would love the leather wrapped wheel tho...

Definitely worth it but I'm biased.

I would check out both if I could. My local dealer had a base V6, and the interior seemed a lot "cheaper" than the 2010 V6 premium interiors I have seen, which should be similar to the 2011 premium interiors. I'm definitely glad I went with the premium for my 2011.

Do you want leather and do you want sync?

I'd rather pick out the wheels and stereo equipment for that price. Leather was a non-factor, but I've seen leather takeoff for $450.

So other than the 6 gauges vs 4, and the leather wheel, its mostly appearance right?

Well, premium also lands you the Shaker 500, power seats, SYNC and Sirius.

Big, if you look at the premium model, you'll see why we got it. Look inside both interiors, base and premium, and the comparison is not close.

When I was looking I sat in the 2010 Base V6, I was thinking for the price I could but in different stereo and Subs change wheels and get other mods to bring it up, then I went and sat in the Premium, Case Closed, Premium it was.
I was going to Order the MCoA package, but after considering the incentives, Interest rates and the new motor I went with the 2010 Pony Package.
I would have loved the 305 HP, but if there was 1 bad motor, it would have been in the Mustang that I bought

Definitely opt for the premium.

For me it wasn't even a choice. My '06 was premium model and I couldn't see myself doing a base model Mustang in either powerplant. If I could see myself in a base model Mustang, then there would have been a base 5.0 GT sitting out in my yard right now instead of a premium v6.

Go for the premium. The amenities it has over the base model are nice.

For Play: 2011 Ford Mustang v6 Premium Coupe w/Pony Package. Stock...for now.

For Work: 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. The fun daily driver.

Right. I would have gone with the base to save some cash, and added the Shaker 500 as an option.

But they don't let you . . . and since I'm not knowledgeable about aftermarket audio, I had to get the premium.

Power seats and leather are nice too.
