CONFUSED

This is my 2nd time posting and I have received a lot of help from the fellow Mustangers. I have 2010 GT and I love it, but I'm craving something more elite. First off is it wrong of me to want to get rid of my car after 8 months. My next question is, would it be worth fixing my current GT or buying something new????

If I were you, I would keep it. Those 2010+ Stangs are real nice, but if I could; I would also upgrade to a 5.0

Going to test drive a 5.0 tomorrow, if I feel a huge difference then I might make the change. Just a hard decision because it's the same exact car just a better engine and about 10 grand more.

Re: CONFUSED

many ways to go about it, you just need to decide the TRUE goals of the car (this includes the amount of money you can invest, if the car ha to be reliable, if you want resale value when your done, if you want a warranty, and many other factors)

once you figure out your real goals we can see the best way to get there.

Well went to go test drive a 5.0 today and they are completely sold out. At least at the dealer I went to. I think I'm going to hold off till next year and maybe they might be cheaper.

I am also looking at the Boss now but suck it dosent come with Bluetooth and as a everyday driver it would be a shame to crank out so many miles on it.

although the BOSS is a sick car, i wouldnt get it unless you took it to the track a lot, or you were a collector. i think a modded gt would be much better.

+1 the boss is a collectors car you can make a stock 5.0 outperform it for less.
