I bought a 2011 California Special 6sp. If I had to do it again I probly go for base auto. I love my car but I really didn't need leather and all the other options.

If u go base you have to get a set of wheels. Can't stand most stock rims.

It all depends on what you want to do with the car. If plan on drag racing or tracking the car buy a base. As you will want it as light as possible.

If want to show it off and look good. Maybe do a few mods then but the top line you ca afford.


As far as wheels. I think all the stock wheels are ugly.

I didn't care about sync. As I planned on drag racing and what not with mine. iphone i can talk to it also so it all works out.

I like the redundent controls on the wheel with premium.The accents in the trim with leather.You can get a racing stripe in the leather plus the sync.Brembo wheel is the only decent stock wheel.But really like said just depends on what you are after in a car.remote seats are nice....the list goes on.

U gotta go at least low end premium... The mycolor feature is eye candy and makes your car stand out from the rest... The base model interior is ugly in comparison, the wheels dont matter cuz most likely your gonna change them to whatever u want...

E.Vaughn done mine on the G8 and it is absolutely high quality work.Will Balance perfect!Blows a balancers mind when they see it.He does it with one seam.Only couple guys around the country who can do this right.It's pricey though.300.00 a wheel.You got to do all the shipping and **** too.It gets expensive but I highly recommend him.He may have come down or you can talk to him for better price but not sure.You got Tim in Jersey but he uses 2 seams from all I here and cost as much

A base model with zero options can be bought around 26-27k. Which leaves a lot of room for mods. Almost everything ford offers can be added at a cheaper price if u install urself. But on the other hand if it comes with the car then it has a warranty. I went with the base because I knew I would change a lot. No point in paying for something that ur going to take out.

Edit: I didn't mean adding ford parts, i meant going aftermarket.
