Which GT Premium would you choose?

I have a choice between 2 GT Premiums on the lots right now that I am looking at, both at pretty good prices. This will be replacing my 12 GT Premium that got totaled because someone didn't yield their turn

Feature wise I wanted:
Manual
Silver
19" Bright Machined-Aluminum Wheel with Black Painted Windows (64X)
Accessory package 5

With package 5 I really like the louvers, can live with out the scoops, and like the spoiler.

Both I am looking at are silver and manual.

Choice 1:
Stock rims
3.55 axle
accessory pkg 5
comfort package (heated seats, mirrors, pony lamp, power passenger)

The 3.55 is a nice balance between the other 2 axles.

Comfort package doesn't add much value for me, I live in TX now so heated seats don't matter and I rarely have a passenger, but the pony lights would be nice

Accessory pkg is what I wanted, so plus there

Choice 2:
3.73 axle
19" painted aluminum wheels

3.73 is a great power axle

These wheels are at least not stock and the same as I had on my '12.

I can probably get the dealer on the second to throw in the louvers for free and get me cost on some vinyl stripe work, which I really liked on my '12.

Cost wise I would be looking at 600$ less for choice 2.

Opinions?

Choice 2:

If I do this buying a mustang all over again mine would be simple…
300a, Automatic, Brembo brake option, 3.55 gears, color doesn’t matter, GHG just for giggles… Brake package, just in case I want to road race the car…
Cheaper car, extra money would be spent on FRPP 624HP blower kit… Change the pulley and throttle body, CAI and custom dyno tune… For another 1200 more, replace LCA, UCA and bracket and upgrade to aluminum drive shaft 2k for drag wheels and tires… Done… 10 second car at altitude.
Cost, less than 43K… if you want to change the sound… another what 600 for axel backs…

What I have in the Boss… A ton spent on Tune, CAI, Throttle Body, Headers to and Axel Backs, 430 Rear Gears, Aluminum Drive Shaft, LCA, UCA and Bracket and MGW shifter, drag wheels and tires… All to run low 12’s at altitude… Around 48K

hindsight really sucks

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

I'd take option 2 which is going to be the faster car of the two and save a few buck towards some suspension mods and a tune.

Option 2 but be sure you drive one with 3.73s to ensure you like it. The gears are short but fun!
