Should I get this 05 3v?

Well first things first, I'm joel and I'm glad to join this cool site
Iv always been a big fan of ls cars, but deep down I'm a ford guy. Anyways, I found this 05 5 speed mustang at the dealer ship. It has a carbon fiber hood, lowered, has some nice American racing rims, has 285's all aroundClick image for larger version

ID:	147559. I test drove it the other day and oh boy does she sound mean..apperantly it's straight piped, the exhaust tips at the end say ford racing? Anyways I think the dealers askin a little too much. The thing about it that scares me is the miles. It reads 120k. They were asking 15 ford it, and I brought then down to 12. I still feel I'm getting ripped off. Should I go in next time with cash and see if they'll bite, or should I look elsewhere? Anyways any opinions or tips in looking for a 3v I'd appreciate thanks.

Well a dealer will always jack up prices regardless of the car. If you can get one privately I recommend you do that if not that's a little high. Try to go as low as 10 because after financing and taxes and what not it will prob go up to 13

At 120K mi KBB says $12.7K for a completely loaded premium automatic GT with every option possible. $10K for a base manual GT. Kinda sounds ab right, not sure though.

A lot of cars can run for a good time if they are well maintained. That's not bad what area are you in? For 17k that's what 2010's go around here

Another thing about the car Is that when I drove it the clutch seemed like it was stage 2 or whatever you call it. It was hard as hell..but I'll tell you she purrs niiiice. I mean not even 2 blocks from the dealer I pass this challenger in 3rd gear, and at the light that's when I found out it was an srt8, and he starts revving his engine at me..idk she does turn heads but I think I can get a better deal somehere else..

This is my car. Its an 07 GT with. 60,000 miles on it plus its a covertible with triple black paint. Got it for just under $11,000. I think you are over paying for a car that has 120,000 under the hood. As for your question about the lifetime of these V8's, i know some Stangs that have over 200,000 and still drive great. It all depends on how you maintain your vehicle and change your fluids. I am well versed in the car arena and kniw quite a bit about Mustangs in general including little tips and tricks about maintainence that will help improve the lifetime of your vehicle.

After taking a look at the pics i can see that the car is not in original condition. For example, the hood is different, the trunk is missing the GT badge, the rear spoiler is gone and GT driving lamps are placed closer together. Regardless of whether or not these aftermarket modifications make the car more appealing or not (not in my opinion) the bottom line is that the car is not in its original factory condition and that is something you can use to your advantage when bargaining cos the moment we replace something in a Stang with a different part no matter what performance or aesthetic advantage it may bring, the end result is that the car loses value. Some food for thought

kila07GT has a point, if you were still interested in that GT. It has an aftermarket cowl hood and hood pins, aftermarket Eleanor grille, aftermarket rims and center caps, and an aftermarket carbon fiber trunk with the faux gas cap removed. That's just aesthetics too. I'm sure the previous owner modded the engine too.

A couple messed up AC vents(my fault) and the door "leathers" are gone. Also had to replace my instrument cluster.

My 2005 Mustang has 168xxx miles. The door "leathers" are still where they should be. lol But that's about it. Driver side seat bolster is torn, carpet has a hole beneath the gas pedal, and the shifter is broken (needle always reads N and the black slider is missing).

That damn shifter module. Pulling it back to put it in drive one day pulled the entire module and trim right out... Idk how I didn't break something. But yeah the needle being stuck is a common problem.

I keep watching a few on ebay. I'm not paying the $200+ that the Ford dealer wants. As for the carpet, LateModelResto sells carpet kits with better sound deadening than the factory carpet.

Yes, I forgot to mention it had a cai and headers. I'm not 100 percent sure but I think it's cammed, or it has a tune or something

A modded Mustang bought from a dealer is almost never a good idea. You have no idea what else was done to it that you can't see, no idea who installed the parts and if they were an idiot or not etc... They probably paid next to nothing vs the actual value of it and are jacking the price hoping someone who falls in love with the car just pays the extra for the mods on it which is stupid but ppl do it.

$10k is as much as I would pay for that but personally, I would look for a stock one under 75k miles in that same price range. They are out there you just have to look and be willing to drive a few hours.

Should I get this 05 3v?

I agree, and they are definitely out there. I found even my 03 completely stock. Even stock exhaust.. I feel like finding a 05-09 stock would be a lot easier. I goin plenty when I was looking for a 05-09. I just decided not to go 10-13k into debt.

Plus the 2v sounds amazing. So much better than the 3v imo
