    If you can afford it and want it, why not.

    Nice! Go for it TH!

    Normally I am a Camaro man when it comes to cars in this class, but the Mustang won me over a few years ago when I rented a convertible Camero... you could barely fit a backpack in the trunk when the roof was down... now in the Mustang you don't loose the space.

    The Ecoboost Mustang is a heck of a lot more fun to drive than the GT in my experience. Granted the GT has some impressive HP/TQ numbers both on paper as well as on the road, the Ecoboost is where the fun to drive Mustang excels as a pleasurable handling car. The Ecoboost is light and nimble, quick into the turns and fast to slow on the brake. Enough power to push you back into the seat and not be rude about doing so.

    If you feel the need for more HP/TQ and speed, Ford offers a Ecoboost Calibration kit that includes a computer performance tune and Ford performance intake. The Calibration kit keeps your 3/36 warranty fully intact. Down side to the calibration kit is that it requires premium fuel. However, to achieve the stated 310HP of the base Ecoboost motor premium fuel is also required. There are also a few other options for high speed performance now available for the Ecoboost that will keep the warranty intact, but I always found that the base factory set up was more than enough power to make it a very enjoyable driver experience.

    Congratulations on your new ride, I feel certain that you will have a blast. Oh, I forgot to mention that the MPG is more than respectable to boot.

    Love the color!!

    Nice! congratulations. I bought a new 03 GT back in 04. Traded it in for a new car for the wife about a year ago. It was her turn, so she said. Not lick of rust on it and under 100 k. I sure miss it. You married?

    Married, yes. No kids. I said ďIíd like a mustangĒ 5 days ago. She said sure and here I am waiting for a ride to pick it up after purchase and detail.
