If you haven't already - order quickly. 5,000 have been built of the 5,500 run.
With respect to the feature options, there aren't many to choose from. The REAL decision point comes with respect to the SVTPP. It makes all the difference to many, and given that 3/4 of 2011 GT500's have it, I'd hate to try to sell mine in the future without it, but you trade one hell of a lot of overhead to get those damned wheels and tires that give added performance within such a narrow band of opportunities.
As for the Electronics Package, you could certainly go either way. Navigation is certainly nice to have - especially if you have another Ford vehicle with navigation, as everything is instantly familiar. But the fact of the matter is that you take a pretty serious step downward in audio quality over the Shaker 500 - with no factory option to step-up to the 1,000. Plus, if you intend to keep you car for a long time, the navigation will quickly become antiquated - and map updates are both expensive and ineffectual after a certain point versus quantum developments like MyFord Touch. Sure, you get dual zone climate control, but when GT500 strips out power passenger and heated seats and a backup camera Ford robbed GT500 of the opportunity it had to be a very well-featured $50K performance car.
Personally, I love the glass roof - especially as an alternative to the convertible, but it's important to remember that it's not, nor will it ever be, a convertible replacement. I just like how it looks from the outside - and its nice from the cabin on certain days and nights.
As far as the car cover goes, you can certainly order one from parts - but if you plan to buy it anyway, why not have it on the vehicle sticker if that kind of thing matters to you?
At the end of the day, the overwhelmingly most popular configuration for couples coupes are the $57,700 or $57,325 configurations - meaning every available option with the cover being the major difference. So are the $55,705 and $55,330 versions.
About 35% are Black, and more than 20% are Race Red. Fewer than 4% are Grabber Blue.
