GT vs premium

alright guys. im getting into a 2011 mustang pretty soon within 2weeks. im on a budget and looking at both the base GT and premium, i really dont see the difference other than the leather inside.
are there any other things that set apart the base from the premium?

is it really THAT worth it paying almost $4k more?
thanks everybody


oo by the way, if i decide on getting the base GT, am i able on buying leather seats for the car down the road?as an aftermarket i guess? sorry i dont have a really good knowledge on cars

Re: GT vs premium

Well with the premium you have the option of getting the electronics package and the comfort package of you really don't care about the leather,heated seats,my color gauges ect.....the just pick up a base model. You can always customize your car with aftermarket seats,stereo ect,ect,ect.

Re: GT vs premium

My rule of thumb when I buy something is...if I'm having a tuff time deciding between two, I always go for the higher end product, otherwise i'll regret it later. If you can afford it and you like the options for the premium...go for it.

Re: GT vs premium

Do you want a stripped down car or do you want a nicer one?

Re: GT vs premium

I would personally get a base model but thats just because I don't really like leather, the my color gauges and all that fancy stuff.
