Just picked up a 2012 Mustang V6 Premium w/Mustang Club of America package on Saturday.





Black leather, 6-speed manual, 3.31 rear end, and a couple other options--- Last 'Stang I drove was dad's 1998 Mustang GT 4.6l back in my high school days, and I still can't believe this Mustang is a 6-banger. The Kona Blue Metallic color is badass too. Definitely changes color based on lighting conditions.

The best part was I had to drive it 200mi back to home from Houston, so I really got to have some fun just cruising. Don't tell the rest of the forum, but I drove the first 20mi or so in 5th gear because I totally forgot I had another gear! (Other car is a 5-speed). Still got just a titch over 28mpg on the drive home (admittedly according to the trip computer) at 70-75mph with A/C on. :bounce2: Double overdrive is the bee's knees!

You won't regret it. I loved the color from just seeing pictures, and trust me when I say it just can't be captured well in a photo. The color is so 'deep'! Hope you get your car soon! I couldn't wait for a custom order due to timing issues with my job, so I ended up going out of state about 200mi to get one from dealer stock in Houston!

The dealer I ordered from actually had a Kona Blue MCA on their lot when I ordered. Looked absolutely awesome in person! Would have been nice to just pick up the one they had right there, but I had to have all my extra bells and whistles :gringreen

Took the 'Stang to the local Mustang guy @ Ryan's Performance.

Came out with 287RWHP / 257lb-ft @ 94deg ambient. Not bad for a CAI/tune, considering stock I was looking at 305 at the crank.
