2) 2011 Ford Mustang Premium Convertible V6 6-Speed Manual

My thoughts:
- Too bad the Performance Package doesn't work with the Pony Package; I prefer the Pony Package over the MCA Package.
- The Convertible is about 3000$ more, but it's a convertible..., it's nice to drive in a convertible...
- The curves and shape of the Coupe is a bit nicer than the Convertible, and with these packages it really is a hit for me..., but it is nice to drive in a Convertible...

I'm looking to keep this car for some years to come, so I don't want to make the wrong choice, I really do like both; Coupe & Convertible. If it wasn't for the Performance Package, I'll get the Convertible, but since it's there...
In the long term, it might be better to go for the Coupe instead of the Convertible?

Any suggestions and ideas are welcome, it's a hard choice!!
Obviously it really is a matter of you deciding which "option" will generate the most fun! For me it is the convertible - even at the additional cost. For a couple of thousand you can do KONI Sport yellow adjustable shocks & struts, stiffer springs, summer tires of your choice. I don't think that loses much over the PP. In the end, the convertible will carry a better resale value, but the real issue should be what will give you the most fun
