Hi all,
Just got a 2012 GT.

Quick rundown:
2012 Mustang GT Base
6 speed manual
Black on black
Only option- Rear parking sonar.
Bought as a daily driver, now I enjoy going to work!
Don't plan on too many mods, but have replaced the shift knob with white ball. Wheels and tires will be done when the stock tires are used up.
Look forward to more reading here on the forum.

BTW- ~1300 miles, and I can NOT get the skip shift to activate. (not really a problem, just strange) I see the messege though.

Thanks for the welcome.
The skip shift is to produce better fuel economy. If certain paramiters are met, it forces you to shift from 1st to 4th. It is easy to disable, but it hasn't given me any reason to yet.

FYI- Black on black in NC is tough. It's been over 100 here for a lot of days. Still worth it though....:bounce2:

Gotcha... thanks for the scoop.

Caspian Blue in a 65 with no A/C in 115 degree temps... I got ya beat lol.

I can't complain though because I choose to drive "Jack" even though it's sweltering outside. Anyone care for any KS humidity? I've got oodles I can send your way.
:bigthumbsup

Am waiting on the arrival of a base GT Ingot Silver/Black Can't wait! How do you like the 3.31 Differential?
About the 3.31's-

I love them. I drove a few with the 3.73's, and what I found was that first gear was absolutely un-necessary. There is plenty of torque, and it is great for all around driving.
