there will always be something better around the corner
It is what it is, full stop. Nothing anyone can do about it except break out the checkbook and buy the new one or be happy with what you have. I paid $28k for mine too, brand new and it was exactly what I wanted. I did an upgrade project that included side loovers, SC, GT500 exhaust, 3.73gears, Roush short shifter, tripple gauge pod, break covers, etc all for about $11k. I'm at about 430hp, so at the end of the day, I have about the same money invested as a new one and I still have slightly more hp. While I'm sure they improved other things, I don't feel left out. Now, if they would have done all of that and left the price alone, that's another story. I would find it hard to pay $40k for a stock gt, when you can get the GT500 which is the best mustang ever for only $50k.
