Talking Not on the right forum i know...

Im still a v6 owner... But im thinking of gettin an 05-09 gt.
Im really considering going on stick shift but the thing is, ive driven stick shift once and im also stuck in traffic a lot on my way to work... So it might not be a good idea. I was also reading that on cars that have a fair amount of hp, stick or auto dont matter that much, only on take off.

I was hoping you guys could help me out a bit here in making my mind up.

I also want red interior - is that a limited edition? I found one already. Black 08 with red interior :d

thanks for the time you are takin to read all that and helping me out!

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

Driving a stick in traffic may be a pain at times, but it's definitely worth the hassle. Hell, even if you do burn up the clutch in traffic you can throw another one in and go...not a birds nest mess week like process like the auto tranmissions.

I've found that there is no bigger difference performance wise in tranmission forms than the 99-04 v6 mustangs. It is mainly due to how the autos are geared from the factory...that's why tuners really improve the autos.

Some auto magazines and sites claim that the newer auto cars end up being faster than the manual cars, but even if that is the case, I'd still take the manual. I currently have an auto, the next mustang I get will be a manual, I've already decided on that.

Used 05-09 GT's are getting pretty cheap these days, so if you traded your v6 in, you could definitely pick one up for a good price. If you buy an 05-07, be ready for a pain when pulling spark plugs. The 2 piece design is known to break upon removal, but 1 pieces are available for the 05-07's. The 08-09's came with revised 1 piece plugs, so no issue there.

You could pick up an 01 cobra or an 03/04 mach 1 for about the same as the 05-09 GT's and get the 4v engine with a few more hp's...but it's up to you...if you really want the newer one go for it...hell a CAI, exhaust and a tune will get you 30-40hp if done right.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

22k is a good price if the car's legit. It is an auto though...the car will still be fast and not disappoint...the 05+ autos are a lot better than the 99-04's from the factory. Plus, you could get a tuner and adjust the firmness and shift points as well. If it's really the one you want and there's nothing wrong with the car...go for it!

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

I'm sure it was an interior option for the cars...definitely not something you see in every 05+ mustang though. Sort of like the white interior offered for the 99-04 models.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

yeah, I believe it was another color option in addition to the standard charcoal and gray interior. I don't think I have ever seen it on a v6 car though, so maybe it was only available on the GTs?

Good idea with the manual. Those guys at the magazines cant be trusted. I have the 6 speed auto in my fusion I'd take the 5 speed over it anyday.
It imediatly shifts into 2nd (you cant take the rpms up in first) and once you get about 55-60 it stays in 6th (no more downshift when you step on it).
It feels more like a 4 speed than a 6.

i completely agree. my fusion is the same way. i hate it. a standard of it would be pretty sweet. better first gear and we could shift down from 6. that would be nice.

The red interior is only available with certain ext. colors. I believe you can only get the red with Black, Red, or White cars.

I would wait till you finish school and get the one you really want. I still have another year and a half, but once i finish up, im picking up my shelby on graduation day. ive contemplated just getting a used gt for a while, but by the time i put the bolt-ons on and have the added insurance, i will just be that much further from what i want.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

Maybe a semester or two (depending on part-full time) then i wanna transfer somewhere else and study something else... I have driven stick once or twice, its fun but its something you gotta get used to if you wanna have your manual car b a daily driver.

Maybe gettin a cheap 94-98 stick would b great to practice and get a hang of it. On my way to work everyday i deal w a lot of traffic so driving a stick is gonna b a pain in the butt! If you plan on gettin a shelby i think you should practice first!
1. You dont wanna mess up the transmission
2. You dont wanna run your car into a poll or something when doin reverse or trying to park lol > those things happen...

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

It depends on what kind of Enthusiast you are. If you want a car you can "Drive" and by drive I mean be in control of more so then a stick is right for you. Those that say "it sucks in traffic blah blah blah..." they obviously dont know or care about the enjoyment a car has and a stick to me is a big part of that fun. Its not a big deal if you know how to drive traffic or not.

When I purchased my 01 Mustang V6 I had never really drove a stick shift.. but I had basic coordination skills as well as common since. I figured it out over the next couple of days and within a week I was good to go. Its pretty easy overall, the only tricky part is taking off on a hill. For that you hold the E-Brake up (with the button held in so you can drop the E-Brake quickly) and rev up as you normally would on take off and ease down the E-Brake and your good to go. This is only on big hills, normally its not an issue.

Some are not real "Drivers" and want an auto for cruising around, dont really give a crap about the most fun, just want to get from point A to B with as little input as possible. The extra control you have with a manual is far superior and makes the car experience more fun overall to me.

Some have medical reasons why they dont want a manual, thats fine. If It was me I would ONLY consider a manual.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

Yea - what im saying is... If you are new driving stick and you get stuck in traffic, its gonna suck!

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!

I agree with the manual. You are in full control of the car... And it is fun, ive driven stick once or twice and it really is awesome

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

I had to use that e brake thing at first too spector but not anymore. Eventualy you should be able to do even the steepest hills without the e brake.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

^^ yea, I just hate being in a parallel park and if you dont hold your foot on the brake and gas while the other is on the clutch you can bump into the car down hill~ easier with E brake for me in that case.

If you wait until the 2011 GT's come out you will find TONS of 05-09 GTs people are trying to dump to upgrade in a big way.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

If you can part with your v6, you could definitely look into a 94-04 GT 5spd while waiting for that 2011. 94-98 GT's are probably going to be cheaper, and could have less miles, but they are slower in stock form than the 99-04's. I have seen 99-04 GT's for less than 7k with fair mileage, so they are out there.

Either way, I'd definitely get comfortable with driving a manual before jumping into your brand new 2011 5.0 GT, lol. Wouldn't want to work out all the clutch burning kinks on that

It's been a month or so since I've driven a manual car, but I drive my bike all the time, so that helps with clutching and shifting, etc.

No I got the good ole slushbox in the stang. But my bike is a 6spd and I drive it just about every day. The only real differences between bikes and cars are coordinating the hand and feet and shift points, at least to me anyways.

I say whatever mustang you get, get it in manual form. You'll be glad you did. Just the feeling when shifting the car is worth it. That and listening to that v8 engine brake on downshifts...I love doing that in my buddie's GT

well he is very old school. he likes those big engines. im trying to at least get him to get the zo6. hey the corvettes are badass and if i was any less sensible id probably get a used zo6 instead of a shelby.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

i had my auto v6 for 5 years before i bought my 88 GT with a stick. it was tricky learning to drive it and i had driven a standard a few times before. i don't drive it in crazy traffic because i'm not comfortable in it yet, but i def don't regret getting the car and NEVER will. The manual tranny makes the car, imo

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

With a 98 V-6 with 497 hp to the ground and a 5spd I would do nothing else but a stick. It so much more fun to drive.

Re: Not on the right forum i know...

There cheaper to maintain (5qt vs 15), easier to maintain (just open the drainplugs no need for a flush), less likely to break (why do you think trucks have manual instead of autos?)........... whats not to love about it.

Oh I'd take a Z06 as well...0-60 in 1st gear, hell yeah...people forget that's a pushrod engine.

It really is fun, and there is a big difference. It's like driving a v6 with flowmasters and then driving a v8 with flowmasters. You'll never go back, lol.

That's what I said. Manual transmissions are so much easier to maintain.
