Default Steve Would Approve....

...of the car I ordered today:



I chose the logical Highland Green paint and went light on the options ordering only HID headlamps, Active Anti-Theft and the Wheel Lock Kit. No fussy NAV system, cell-phone gizmos or boom-boom stereos needed here...all the music and entertainment I need will be provided by my right foot!

With a little help from my friends, a screaming deal was had. Delivery estimated in about 8 weeks...stay tuned.

Congrats....I think you'll be happy with it. Mine will be here next week, and I'll post up some pics.

Thanks Mike. I too considered a GT500 (if I could get one at sticker) but these just look so good, are a very well balanced car and a heck of a good buy considering what you get for the price. Sounds like our cars are very similar in configuration, it'll be interesting to see what S/Ns each ends up with.

you will certainly like it. every time I drive my GT I flirt with an "excessive acceleration" citation. It is very hard to keep the tach needle below 5k....

I only have three options on mine, spoiler delete, 3.55 gears, and the shaker 500. I like the cloth interior and the lack of bling. I will probably do a couple of mods but it won't be much, the car is already a rocket.

the bullits are very cool...

Yeah, the only thing I wish was offered in the Bullitt was cloth or cloth insert seats. Leather is very hard to stay planted in under heavy cornering unless you've got a harness. At least the seats are well bolstered, same ones as in the GT500.

Amazingly, I've never been ticketed while driving any Mustang I've ever owned. I'm going to have to try very hard (or be extremely lucky) to keep that record standing once I take delivery of the new steed!

I would be happy to trade seats with you. I have an 08 with charcoal cloth. I would even drive out to your house and trade them....

Ford put out an announcement effective Jan 9 that the Bullitt was no longer A/X/Z/D plan eligible. I ordered mine on Z plan, and was waiting to hear if the change applied to my case. FMC said they would honor my order, and now today it's posted all over the internet that Ford has reversed their position and that the cars are once again plan eligible.

So...a very nice deal on mine as well.

That's good news. They were able to get mine into the system under D-Plan yesterday.
