Congrats! I remember when mine just rolled off the truck, covered in protective stickers, completely filthy just like yours and I thought I had never seen a better looking car. I still love driving her just as much as the first time I got behind the wheel.

And nothing wrong with automatics. Your new, so you'll soon find out we try to be different on this site and not to disrespect anyones choice in options.

Welcome aboard!
Bucko did you mean a TSB on the manual?

I agree though, you put some wheels and tiny on silver and it really makes it stand out. Going with manual or auto?

Way to go!! That was my same thinking, get a V6, and make it fun by getting a manual, although people say the auto is pretty fun in them as well

I'm sure the autos are more fun than they used to be but I still think stick in a car like what we will have is the way to go for sure.

I'm going to try and use that warranty as my main justification for why I shouldnt dump a lot of funds that I don't have into the engine lmao

Lol, you and I are on the same page man! There is no way i would have settled for an auto, i enjoy shifting gears! That's my main excuse to not mod the engine as well. Although I'm sure I will at some point

I don't know how it is where you are but in Indiana you only pay taxes on the difference of your trade, so I bought my car for $27k and traded my truck at $14k so I only paid sales tax on $13k. So you can kind of look at it like they're giving you an extra $1000, even though it doesn't appear that way, so you may be better off to just trade it in rather than wasting the effort for another $1000 and have to pay more in sales tax!

+100 I hate driving autos now that I've driven my manual stang for about a year now. Just something about having total control of the vehicle, feels awesome.

I just got this a few months ago so I still owe $10.3k, so I'd just be bringing over $1700 from the trade-in towards the mustang. If I sell it I can bring 2700 or so. Kinda sucks, hopefully I can get rid of it privately in time.

If window tinting counts I have an appoint this Saturday to get that done, other than that I'm not sure. I will probably buy winter tires too, but here lately in Indiana it hasn't been too bad!

Tints, very nice. Definitely one on the top of my list, cheap and effective.

This snow has been hit or miss here in Jersey, so I have to be on the safe side and grab some Blizzaks or Michelins.

Then maybe a nice set of wheels , and then start saving for the CAI + tune, exhaust, etc. etc.

A CIA, tune, and exhaust are definitely on my radar, it's going to be a while for me though, I have a 71 duster I need to finish restoring this spring and its taking all my money

Love the grabber blue. Congrats man. So i'll admit that I have no idea how to tell the different between an auto and a stick. What is different about the exhaust tips?

Thanks man, I appreciate it. I don't know the difference between the tips, but I have heard several people say they are different. There's an auto at my dealership I should just drive by and check it out.


On a side note, a V6 camaro was revving up on me at a stop light, he got to see how cool my tail lights are!

You don't know the half of it! I flew to New Orleans, from Orlando, two weeks ago to pick my 4th lady up...found her online...2013 Premium 6, Pony Package, comfort package and Nav system....3k miles on her for 20k. I couldn't jump on it fast enough! Already have her going in the shop Saturday for tint, stripes and having an Audison Bit Ten DSP put in to run my amps\subs\speakers with the Nav. Next up...CAI, Roush axle backs and a tune. Those 700 miles, driving her back, were absolutely amazing, just stock...I can't wait to start modding!

Yeah I agree there! It makes me feel bad for what I paid for mine. I did find a 13 and the lowest I could get them down to was $25k. I am definitely jealous of your deal!
