Very nice. Trimmed up nicer than I expected, this one had the appearance package. Great sound. Great torque and smooth power band, car really flies and can be easily tweaked. Wonderful clutch and short throw stick, too bad BMW won't do it. I was shifting like I'd been driving the car for years, smooth, crisp and spot on. Didn't feel as torquey as my 540 but the speedo said otherwise...I was going faster than I thought when I let her rip, 85 after shifting out of second and a bit into third. Car only had 28 miles on it, so I didn't want to kill it. Very taut suspension, but not bone jarring. Car was tight, quiet and smooth. Not a squeak or rattle that I heard. Did I mention the great exhaust note? Also, the seats are supportive and comfortable. When I got back in my 3 with sport seat, I felt more like I was sitting on the seat rather than in. The 'stang felt more like my 540 comfort seats.

No :D

I envy you, Mustang is a very rare sight in this part of the world. Corvette is being officially imported, but not Mustang :rolleyes:

I'd love to test drive one. :)

After that review, I might have to take one for a spin.

We stopped by the Porsche stealership here in Tyson's this afternoon--they have a row of like 15 Cayenne's lined up, and I figured we could prolly steal one if we liked it. We didn't drive it (didn't want to transfer the booster seats from our rental into the car), but we weren't overly whelmed with them either.

The only one we'd consider is the base model (due to price considerations), and I'm guessing we'll prolly prefer the all-new MDX due out this Fall over the P-car. That being said, I'll have to defer a final decision until after we've had a chance to test drive.

Ford did an outstanding job on the new Mustang :) it's hard to believe it has a solid rear axle, the new three link rear suspension is very well designed :thumbup:

But it's still a live axle so it has to suck. Haven't you read all the other threads here about the Mustang? Never mind the fact that everyone that's actually driven one has said otherwise, if you haven't driven one you MUST argue that it sucks because a live rear axle can't possibly be good.

:bigpimp:

Right. And what's the HP per litre on that thing? Even if it punches you in the kidneys harder than Mike Tyson when you mash the go pedal, it must suck if it's got less specific output than a high-end german marque.

I think Ford did an incredible job on it, I spoke to a guy at a gas station when filling up and he had a GT .. . he was raving about how great it was and his prior car was a 323i ... he said he was into Bimmers but he was so in love with his new Mustang !!

After reading your review it's got to bed as great as described.

Alan, I thought of you this A.M. and wondered if you'd driven one. As someone who's tested a bunch of performance cars, I'd be curious as to your impressions. Go drive one on your lunch break if you haven't.

I passed a Ford dealer today and saw a really nice Mustang parked out front ... I might take one out for a drive next time I pass the dealer ... I still cannot get over what a great job they did on that car :thumbup:
