Well, the time is nigh! I found a great dealer who's willing to work out a decent deal on a factory order. If incentives come up between now and delivery I will get those too!
I've basically decided on everything, but there are a few things I'm hemming and hawing over, and I'd love any input regarding these few things.
First of all, the main order is as follows:
V6 Premium, Manual
Leather (in Canada leather is an option on the premium)
Pony or MCoA (dependant on colour)
Here's what I'd like real-world advice on... ie. you've seen and/or used these things in person.
1) 3.31 or stock 2.73? - everyday driver, gas mileage is a small concern but mostly want smooth city driving. Not too feisty, not sluggish.
2) reverse/security package - what kind of security is it? Did your insurance go down having it? Any built in security or tracking on the car with electronics pack? Reverse sensing works well? Would backup camera be better? Do I even need this?
3) colour... Yes, I know, subjective preference. But I find pictures online and in person viewing to be different... ie. metallic hues under overcast sky. Three choices: race red, DI Blue, Ruby Red. Has anyone seen the ruby in person? On pictures it varies from brownish to plum, deep red to bright red. Hard to tell what I'd be getting due to bad white balancing :p. can anyone point me to pictures they feel
ACURATELY represent the car?
This factory order business is fun but sometimes hard to tell what you're getting if they don't have examples on the lot
Thanks for reading! If you made it this far you are a die hard forum user and mustang guru and I salute you
