Drove the Mustang GT

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.

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.
