SJ, if this is your 7th Mustang, why are you posting as a "first time" owner? LOL!
Hey, we were all first time owners at some point! Really though, the 2010 and 2011 models are different enough to feel like a first time owner. They are more refined and the build quality is noticeably better. I didn't like mine at first, but it has really grown on me. However, the '06 is more 'nostalgic'.
