I'm having a blast with every aspect of this car.
I also notice especially on the highway the car scoots a lot faster. My 2006 auto while quick, on the highway at higher speeds it was A LOT slower.

Congrats, guys! I love the interiors of the Premiums too, but even the base models in the 10+ look much better. The GT makes you look like the Joker...just watch out for cops

gordo,

That looks great! I, too, am scared that some careless turd is going to open his door too wide and hit me.

Do you guys ever have to tell your family, friends, or coworkers to shut the door easy? It seems like so many people are used to crappy cars that they are used to slamming doors, and it drives me nuts!

They follow mine around.. Not as bad after I removed the 5.0 badge, but still get profiled some...

You really removed the 5.0 badge so the cops wouldn't see it?

Nope. Never said I did..The Cops still creep around it?? Dang onikers .. Thank God for Bel Tonics..
It makes it a sleeper... My wife wanted as many mustangs AKA ponies on the car as possible..Makes the car look like a V6( other than fog lights) it has a 5.0 badge still.. It's just where it counts..

OP love that silver... That is a great color

Thanks.

I can't imagine removing the 5.0/gt badges. Just doesn't feel right.

I still have not gotton on it all the way especially at very slow speed or dead stop. How fast does the auto feel from 0-60? the auto does it in 4.6 seconds. Does the tires chirp at all?

I work Fri and Sat night and have to drive down some main streets where a lot of teens drive as well. I'm worried the cops will be all over me. especially since my plates have not transferred yet if they run them it will show up under 2006 gt so I'm sure I will get lit up.

To each his own..

My auto.. will rip up 1st.. Break loose second.. This is all with fatter than stock tires on it.. 4.6 seconds?? IDK never timed it... Go look at the first gear ratio on the auto and compare it to the manual... This is the greatest auto trans I have ever been around.. I love my auto..

I didn't look up what the first gears ratio is.

I will say though on the highway this has A LOT more power than my auto 2006 GT at higher speeds.

Driving on the street the car wants to go and you easily can be driving above the speed limit and not know it.

My car would just cruise perfect at 80.. It loves that speed... Will get there all by itself seems like..

After tint... I recommend a good radar detector( a escort or a bell).. Mine has saved my butt a couple of times and I have only had it a few weeks..Less money on tickets.. That's more money for mods:yelpleased:
