That seems like a good deal. I just traded in my 2012 GT premium and I got more than that for my trade and bought my 2014 using x-plan.

I thought long and hard about the 2015 before I got my 2014. I don't hate the 2015 looks but I do like the 2014 a little better. With the deals the difference in price is going be in the thousands, not an insignificant number. Final reason is that by now the bugs have been worked out in the 2014 platform so my odds of a trouble free experience are way better with the 2014.

If you like the look of the A5 but want more power and the growl of a big V8, buy the 2015. It has a lot going for it with IRS, it's pretty good looking (though sometimes it looks like a small Fusion) and I read they changed the manual transmission. Lots of cool features as well. I do think it's risky buying the first model year as they have more problems. I also own a 2012 Jeep GC and when I review the TSBs on the Jeep forum there are boat loads for the 2011 and very few for the 2012. Doesn't mean it will happen with your 15 but definitely a higher probability than with a 14.

Lastly - why are you looking to get rid of your A5? I have thought about trading the Jeep in for one from time to time. Love the Jeep but the A5 looks great and seems like it would be a blast to drive.

I would jump on 14 deal. It's tough to give up IRS from 15 but the first year vehicle worry makes me take 14.

It seems that money is not that big of a factor in the decision. I say wait for the 2015. What little I've read, it's going to be an outstanding car.

Update: I went to the dealer yesterday and am in the process of trying to negotiate for either a better price or better interest rate.

And yes money is a big factor, I am trying to get rid of the A5 because of the high payments and high maintenance costs (freakin $120 for an oil change :0), I have come to the conclusion that getting a 2015 will not lower my payments and may in fact increase it.

If everything goes as planned then i may be the owner of a mustang by tomorrow, I will keep you guys updated.

Never buy a 1st year car, especially from an American car company, especially if its a high performance car. Just dont do it. Get the 2014 GT and if you aren't into it your losses will be far less than if you get a 2015 and dump it in a year or two. You never know if you will like it or not. The Audi may have spoiled you a little, they're great cars.

For your sake, I hope that was the OTD price.

The important thing is that you love your car though - a few bucks here and there wont mean a whole lot years and thousands of miles down the road. However, the last few months have been full of good deals on 2014's.

Personally, I'd go the "14" rout. As others on this forum have said, the looks of the new 2015 just don't grab me. The 2014 will be the last time a Mustang looks like a Mustang. The only way the deals get sweeter for the 2014 is for the colors and options that don't sell well.

I would try to find a lightly used Boss or GT500. Both options seem like fun investments... I have to imagine the 15 is going to have some of the issues every new model has. The 16 and 17s should have those issues worked out and be a better platform. Also, the aftermarket parts vendors should have better quality parts out by then for your modding needs.

I opted to get a 14 Mustang since they are offering amazing deals (although mine was nowhere near that good of a deal, I got about 5k off MSRP) because I don't like to get the first model year, however my brother has an 05 Mustang and hasn't had any issues. Also, not sure I really like the styling of the 2015's. If I decide I want one, I'll go for a 2016 or 17, once they works out the kinks.
