I am probably the biggest wannabe out there. Not many weekends go by that I do not drive by the Ford dealer to "look at all the pretty horses." However, a stroke of good luck is starting to happen. My wife "promised" me that I could eventually get one. Here are the specs I think I want, if anyone has any suggestions, please add them.

2006 or 2007 GT Premium Convertible, 5 speed Auto
Exterior - Tungsten Grey
Roof Color - Parchment
Seats - Medium Parchment
Radio - Shaker 1000
17" Premium Painted Alum Rims
Convertible Soft Boot.
Wheel Locking Kit
Anti Theft Perimeter.

I am not exactly sure of the Convertible Boot Cover, will it match the Parchment roof?

This is an odd color combo, but I think it will look sharp, what do you think?

I am replacing a 1995 Thunderbird LS (V8) with over 160,000 miles on it. I am extremely good to my cars, and have had this car since it was a year old. I do all my own maintenance, is the Mustang V8 pretty easy to get a wrench on, so to speak?

After 7 years of school and 10 years driving the same car I think it is time to start thinking about treating myself to a beauty. I will hopefully be ordering this car in early 2007. Are there any changes on the horizon (Besides the Shelby). Is the 2009 model going to change dramatically, I know it is early to know.

THanks for all of your help. I have truly enjoyed your site!

Sounds great! I have also been told by my wife that by mid to late this year I can order mine. I am so pumped a day hardly passes that I am thinking about this. I have wanted a Mustang all my life and I finally have the chance to get one. I am 43 years old and it is about time. Did not really like previous models except for sixties and early seventies. This one just ROCKS!!

I will be ordering the GT Premium in Black with the Charcoal Leather seats. I will be getting the 18" Polished aluminum wheels. They look sweet on the black.

I am hoping to also find out what plan changes there are in 07 besides the GT500.
Good luck and enjoy. :kooky:

Change the wheels to 18" bullits or fans :eyepoppin
My humble opinion thinks there will be no difference for the 07's due to Ford's money woes.

Best of luck to both of you... As for what you want in the car, it's a personal choice. You don't need our approval or validation. Just go with what you want and you'll be fine. We'll like it regardless (that is unless you install blue LEDs, a fart can muffler, or a giant silver wing!)

Some aspects of the new Mustang are very easy to work on (exhaust, intake, body). Still others (i.e. ignition, fuel delivery) require above average skill.

which rims are the Bullits? Are they the standard rims? The brushed ones?

Thanks for the comments. The main things I am hoping for is updates to some of the problems I have heard on some of the forums (Gas fill problems and Shaker system problems). That would make me happy. Are the fan blades polished aluminum or chrome?
I do want to change the exhaust. Been reading a lot from the forum on that and still undecided. I also want to add the classic chin spoiler.

Can't wait!!!!

I know about the individual taste and all. I have seen the color combo I like only one time, and it stuck out to me as extremely sharp.


But, I just wanted some opinions, not that they ultimately matter, but I just wanted to know if there was a huge objection to tan over grey.

Is this color combo to feminized? :rolleyes:

Gas tank fill problem and popping struts should no longer be an issue and certainly not on the 2007s. Shakers look like they may continue to be a problem, but I've been lucky so far (knock wood). CDC classic chin spoiler is a nice addition (and about a 5 minute install). Mutiple exhaust options out there--headers, catted-x, ,cat-back, axle-back--there's a lot you can do. And don't forget a CAI and tune!

Some (not all) stations still give us 06 ers some grief filling up.

Does anyone know of any pictures of a Tungsten Convertible with a Parchent Roof? I have been looking all over the internet for one, but have been unlucky. Any suggestions?

the boot cover would be used only if I was to go on a long trip somewhere with the Top down. Which could happen in the beautiful West Michigan Summers. I cannot wait to cruise along Lake Michigan in my hopeful new car in a year or year and a half!

Nevermind I think I know the difference between cat-back and axle-back now. Cat-back is catalytic converter back and Axle-back is from the axle back, right?

Here is a little more information (just found it) on the 07 models:

Also for 2007, a GT/CS (California Special) will be available with a GT/CS tape stripe, hood scoop, side scoops, and a unique front fascia. Inside, the GT/CS will have heated two-tone black and grey leather and suede seats and the rearview mirror will have an integrated compass. An intake cover will dress up the engine bay. The GT/CS will be available nationwide as either a coupe or convertible.

So, is the boot cover complete waste of money? I figured I may use it down the road. This is all inquiry to make an informed order in the future, thanks for all of your help!
