i'm torn...

I'm looking to get a new car (not trading this one in, it will be in addition to my 04)...im debating on what i should get...

option 1: 2011 gt c/s edition...originally what i really wanted and had planned to order but...

option 2: triple black 2011 gt...i'm loving the looks and the price is slightly better

option 3: used roush...i.e Ford : Mustang: eBay Motors (item 350362950121 end time Jun-14-10 15:38:32 PDT)

suggestions?

I don't know how you can overlook the 2011 5.0.

Re: i'm torn...

Is this going to be a daily driver? I would say go with the Roush because is limited production,has low miles,more HP and they price is great. There are gonna be a ton of new 5.0's out there and plenty of time to get one. Don't get me wrong the new 5.0 is badass but I would still go with the 427.

Re: i'm torn...

I think you'd be fine with any of those choices...the Roush looks pretty good. 145 out of 200, good number.

As said, I don't know if I'd dd a Roush 428, one of the GT options would be better, but that's up to you.

Re: i'm torn...

If you want a 05-09 get a 07 GT500 down the road when prices drop a bit more. For the 2011.. thats 100% up to you. I know if I was personally buying I would get the premium package (for leather), the OEM duck tail spoiler looking one, HID headlights, 3.73 gear upgrade, 6 sp manual, Brembo Brakes, and maybe the interior upgrade package, and if you like gadgets get the sync system~ thats all you really need, I mean you will be modifying the car so nothing else is needed. For color, DONT GO BLACK if its a DD you will regret it lol. I love the Kona blue its a GREAT color in person.

The price will be around 34-37k (wait a bit like 6 months and I BET you can get invoice and save a few grand, or find someone with an X plan code you can use). Plus that gives more time to save as well as the first little bugs to be found out and updated if there are any found.

They do make Roush stage 1/2's for 2011 ive seen one personally, just the looks on a GT though~

Finally, you could do the smart thing and buy a 03/04 cobra... just putting that out there















j/k... (or am I)

Re: i'm torn...

another thing, if you go with the GT/CS you dont get the 5.0 side badges (oh noes!) and no one will believe you when you say its a 5.0 as it doesnt have the badges....

Won't the engine bay be pretty much the same?...so the intake cover should have the "5.0" badge on it...that's where it really matters...anyone can take off and put on badges on the exterior.

Re: i'm torn...

^^ true, just an observation of mine~

If you have always wanted a roush buy a stage 1 2011 and then mod it how you want power wise.

Re: i'm torn...

You have a point but I still say go with the roush because its limited production,low miles,good price and if you wanna mod it you can probably do some forged internals for cheaper than what it would cost you to slap a blower on the 2011. Just my 2 cents.

Re: i'm torn...

okay so i've made my decision....

...this decision was even made after riding in a 2011 427r (aka sex on wheels)

i'm gonna go grabber blue gt w/blue stripes 3:73 brembo brakes hood scoop, side louvers, decklid spoiler and side scoops.

the 5.0 is 420 hp, as much as i would LOVE a roush i think my best bet is the new gt
