Here are my impressions so far:

Engine: At low rpms, the pace is very smooth and sedate. Gears shift ery smoothly and quickly. This is where the great mpg rating comes from. I actually was thinking, is this it? Anyway, got on a nice back road and hit the throttle on a straight stretch. OMG! That little V6 went from 100 hp to all 305 in a jump up - bite'um in the ass flash! That was what I wanted to see and it doesn't have to be at every stoplight! Just occasionally is fine with me.

Ride: The ride is simply superb. On the twisties, the car corners like a cat with extra long claws. It feels like it actually squats down as it enters a turn. I know, sounds strange. The steering has zero play, turns with the slightest wheel movement, and is very tight. You feel very much in control with the wheel in your hands.The steering wheel is the perfect size and leather wrapped. Great feedback from the road.

Interior: I'm 6' 2" and weigh 220. I am not crowded in the least when I get in my car. Lots of leg room and the seat feels like it contours to my body. My color, ambient lighting, power leather seats, SYNC, instrumentation, soft dashboard, console, convertible roof, nice stereo, mirrors, auto-dimming rear view mirror, etc. I have zero complaints and simply love everything about my Mustang. The Premium interior is well worth the money. Very classy and yet sporty.

Appearance: I look at my new Mustang and think; does that look like a meek V6? Not even close! The aggressive stance, a front end that outshines the GT front end, beautiful color, great lines, dual exhausts, and a convertible to boot! Whats not to like? (Hear that Camaro Cavemen!)

There are a ton of guys and gals in here with their own opinions and may disagree with me. That's ok. So.....who gives a rat's ass! This is my car and my opinion. My FIRST Mustang and I'm crazy about the car. Of course, after 28 years in the US Army, I probably am crazy! LOL!

It is my wish that every Mustang owner in this forum is as excited, enthusiastic, and protective of his car as I am. The 2011 is a very special automobile and I hope you each have fun every time you crawl in it.

Thank you, I like real life comments and by the sounds of things the V6 is just the ticket for me, 2.73 rear and all. I guess the car is like I read someplace, "it is like having two cars in one" gentle and aggressive. My wife will enjoy the gentle and I will be able to play when she lets me drive.

Thanks Tara! I almost got the Perf White but obviously changed. Just like the Kona metallic paint. Hopefully we'll have a SC rally and all us forum AFM folks can meet. See you on the road!

Dude!!!

I wanted a 2011 GT Convertible, but looking at yours, I'm thinking about saving the extra dough because that car looks sweet. I had no idea the V6 came with dual exhaust and with an after market, I'm sure it'll sound just like a GT. I'm not with the racing, so don't care about the jump off. I'm back to the drawing board with weighing my options...sheeeeesh...

Congratulations. Very nice ride. I love the write-up too.

I ordered my car 2 days ago (6/20). Its also a Kona blue convertible. If I listened to my logical side, I would have bought the v6 too. Plenty of power (faster than 95% of cars on road) and good gas mileage.

Of course, the little devil on my shoulder shouted for the v8, and he threw logic out the window. :run_over:
