This is the first new Mustang I have ever owned and it is GREAT! I have an 89 LX convertible that I have owned since '89 and have had a '65 Mustang. This car is faster, tighter, better made and looks better than any Mustang ever built.
The vehicle is everything Ford designers intended it to be. This automobile is sleek in every aspect; the exterior and the old body design to the sporty look, not so much the European look on the interior.
This car caught my eye the first time Ford revealed it to the public, before assembly. I knew I was going to own one.
I traded up from a 1994 Mustang 5.0. What a drastic difference in performance, comfort and styling. Every day I catch people staring at my vehicle. The Shaker 1000 stereo system sounds better than my home stereo.
The Mustang GT drives great and looks fantastic. It has very comfortable seats and is a pleasure to cruise in on the highway. I think its ultimate handling abilities exceed my willingness to explore them but when pushed through the twisties this car would probably put certain 2 seater sports cars to shame. With the 5 speed manual, the acceleration is outstanding and the incredible exhaust note under power makes the car a total blast to drive. Another thing I have noticed over the 4 months I have owned this car is that almost everyone who sees it, rides in it, or drives it wants one too. My wife loves the car too and we are extremely pleased with our purchase (our first Mustang by the way).
Seats, motor, upgraded dash, red leather interior, manual transmission, light clutch, general feel of the car, exterior appearance.
18" wheels with wider tires, slightly lower stance, power seat back, HID lights, larger more finished looking exhaust tips, even more power, 6 speed manual tranny, auto headlights and auto dimming rear view mirror, wiper on rear window? (well - maybe not).
