Just my opinion, but based on a little bit of experience.
Select shift is NOT like a paddle shifter or dual clutch. It felt exactly like my F150 select shift (basically, wait a second an then u get your gear).

Mt82 issues were addressed. And like someone said, if you actually do have a problem it will be replaced. Also, most rewarding mod so far for me was the MGW short throw because I was able to do it myself. It u want to avoid the Notchy, catching issue get a Barton or MGW.

Anyway... Aren't you getting some nice options in lieu of the auto?! This is a muscle car bud, with the extras I seems manual is no brainer

Re: 2013 mustang gt... manual or auto?

lol yeah my cousin told me to get Barton or MGW to eliminate those issues.
i know the V6 has come a long way. but for me,
Mustang means V8 power and Manual shift.
ive already talked to a few dealerships, now i just have to decide which is gonna be the best deal, theyll pick me up at the airport to finish the deal.

This is a 2013 in Arlington, Tx. Spoke with them today. Just a lil concerned as to why they already have rockstar rims on a 2013 with 77 miles on it.
Anyways it's cheaper that the bone stock auto here in town. And this already has wheels(which I was gonna upgrade anyways) and better seating package

Love the axle back. Can't wait for headers and h pipe.

I have that same leather! Maybe the best 200 bucks I spent on my car.

But what kind of hill is it parked on? That parking brake is crazy, just put it in gear and give it a little tug, it's brand new! Lol

She is beautiful. I am not a fan of the rims, but that is just me. I think they look good, but I went with OEM 2013 GT rims for mine, the 18s. I like a little shine, the all black looks good, but I couldn't live with her.

Re: 2013 mustang gt... manual or auto?

lol normal driving is all i want. manual trans does make driving much more fun.
it'll be alot of fun to pull up next to those a-holes that text and drive and throw it in neutral and rev her up and scare the crap out of them.

They *can* be much faster in the quarter mile. This involves some serious mods and tubing though. What they certainly are is more consistent and easier to launch.

Funny story about that. I have a 2011, my friend has a 2013. The clutch feel is so different it's like two different cars. We drove a set route and switched on the way back. We were both blown away by how "different" the mt82 is in the 2013 cars. Mine isn't as bad as some, but it has a very mechanical feel where the mt82 in his 13 is almost like an electronic switch.

As far as clutch pressure, I'd say its 1/3 a 1/2 the effort in a 13 vs an 11-12.

That seems extreme. The clutch on the 12 feels like a feather to me, other than holding it to the floor for 30+ seconds. I am glad to know that, I hope I get a chance to test drive one.

Maybe they changed the clutch pressure in 12. I never drove a 12 mt82 tbh, but all the 2011s I've driven have a pretty stiff/heavy clutch.

77 miles and it has different wheels?? and its also lowered it seems... dunno if this is a good or bad thing, if your getting it at a ford dealer make sure they have the warranty in writing about the custom wheels and suspension

Yeah. No warranty=no sale

The warranty is the only reason I'm buying a 2013. It's at a ford dealership. Just seems a little off for a new car. Hmmmm. I have to make another call to them and figure out what's goin on with it before I make the 714 mile trip there for nothing and leave empty handed

You're right. It's not the same, not even close. My buddy has a gallardo that has paddle shifters and the switch is instant and much more refined. On a side not, on the street, his car feels like your riding in a wooden roller coaster. Stiffest suspension ever.

I see your point but lets be honest, you cant compare a lambo with a stang. Lambo's are, in my opinion, show cars. Yea they're fast and have good performance obviously, but I find them too pretty. I prefer a bad *** muscle car (with a manual trans)

It's either go big with V8 manual or go home.
Not knocking the V6, try can be modded to produce power, but nothing say MUSTANG like a V8(5.0) manual

---------- Post added at 03:16 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:12 PM ----------

I'd rather a car I can take anywhere. In a Lamborghini, I'd be afraid to take it to the store in fear someone would door knock me like theyve done all down the passenger side of my 300zx. I'll be a lil P'd off if someone does that when I pick up my 13gt. But it wouldn't be as expensive to fix as a lambo

Just don't forget without 4cyl and 6cyl Mustangs there would be no GT's as the base model(6cyl/4cyl) support the brand.

Manual! So much more fun and you can really here the exhaust better from letting out the clutch and shifting at higher points.

No doubt. I had a 94 3.8L v6. Paid $300 for it. Var was immaculate except for the motor. Was living in Ohio. Had remote start. Was nice for winters. Just say I spent a lot of money on it to get it back to showroom condition.

Haha I personally can't do an auto anymore. The moment I learned how to drive a manual, I couldn't go back. There's something engaging about shifting gears somehow...from third to fourth in particular. He's my daily driver, too. Inching in traffic is a pain in the *** at times, but my legs are so used to clutching and shifting so often that I can live with it.

Met a guy who knew how to drive stick, but he bought an automatic Camaro SS because he believed he couldn't drive a manual in Virginia traffic. When he found out that my stang was a stick, he stopped bragging to me about his Camaro.

I think I just dethroned him

I feel the same way. Even in LA traffic (ok, not the worst, but still 1hr/day afternoon commute). Just can't do auto. Rental cars are torture & I stomp the dead pedal in them all the time.

Yeah, nothing like driving an auto with a phantom clutch, and an invisible shifter. I do it all the time. "All right, lets get into first. No, wait, wait............that's drive." My friends probably think I'm crazy lol!

I can imagine LA traffic being horrible. In my area, it really only gets that way when there's a big accident. I get those moments where I inch in traffic for so long that I start feeling like my left leg is bigger than my right, but it's worth it.

That is a shame man. I am sorry, it is dreadful to be screwed like that. I ordered my 12 and was told it was a premium. Got the sheet, they lied, had to start over.

I implore you to write a negative review, and warn others. Don't let someone else go through what you went through.

Oh I'm gonna write a negative review about them. I even had a local dealer try to get the car and he said there was a bunch if red tape around the car and something was shady about it.
Look up bankston ford in Arlington, tx. It's a black 2013 gt listed for $26,640. And it's listed at that price on 3 different sites. I'm glad I didn't waste money on a plane ticket to fly there, I woulda been all kinds of pi$$ed off. The local dealer is gonna take care of me tho. I have to meet him Tuesday afternoon.
