03/04 cobra maintaining

I'm looking to buy a 03/04 cobra and I want to know is it costly to keep one running. Can I get a bang for my buck from 03/04 cobra rather then buying a gt?

The more complicated that the car is, the more money it will require to maintain it.
I dont own one but I'm guessing that they are about as reliable as any GT.

The supercharger is a nice upgrade above the GT, which gives the Cobra about 125 more horsepower... You will feel that!
You'll pay for it though, a comparable Cobra will cost $10k+ more than a GT.
If you keep it relatively stock though it should hold it's value better than a GT will and it's entirely possible that the two year run of the "Terminator" will become a valuable collector car in the future.

Shouldnt be much more to maintain. Little stuff like 93 octane gas and mobil 1 oil (which you should put in that kind of car) isnt a lot more than the conventional stuff. Oiling the supercharger is necessary too once in a while.

Maintain like every other Mustang. They were great in 2003, but today they are badly dated. And for the prices ppl still want for them you can buy a really low mileage 2011/2012 GT. Yeah you might find a Terminator with the same mileage but we are talking about a 10-12 year old car vs a 2-3 year old car.

This. Anyone that's selling one around here wants WAY to much for it. Talking 3-10k over the KBB. I looked at them when i started to search for cars but i just don't think it's worth it. Besides i hate the interior lol.
