Trade? 2001 v6 auto for 2005 gt manual?

They are both convertibles. I like the way new edge looks. Hmmmmmm. I could also get 04 gt manual. What you all think?

Personally I would go for it if you got the cash to do it!.. I do think the New Edge is the best looking Stang out there, but that '05 GT does look sharp and will outperform it!.. Just have to ask yourself what's more important to you!..

My advice is to wait the 05's are decent but I'd start at 07 that's when the build quality really increased.

Although it looks so tempting, I say keep shopping around... Plus, how much would they give you for your car upon trading... Our cars aren't so great when it comes to trade-in value, regardless of what's actually on the car right now. If its not gonna be so much help to bring the GT's price lower, then just keep the sixxer.

Ok update!!!!! 2 very sleepless nights I've been having. Never mind that 05 body. I don't like it! The new edge it is. Here I'm going to show you guys the car I'm going to test drive Sunday. I wanted a gt manual but I might found something better. 2001 svt cobra convertible with 112k miles. All stock except CAI and Saleen rims. What you guys think???? Also price is $10,000. I'm trading my v6 for this and I dont know which rims will look better my chrome bullits or the black saleens it has already. Any suggestions. Thanks!

First 2 is the v6... Next 2 well you guys know the cobra.

COBRA! Those things are sick! With 100k+ miles make sure you check it over good! But it's a nice looking car

I dont care for the 05-09 model mustangs. Look way to boxy to me. the 99-04 or the 10-13' stangs are the way to go.
