Couldn't have been enjoying the Mustang anymore than I am currently.

I get 29 mpg combined when I just care to drive "normal."

And I tap into the 310 horses and 320 lb/ft when I feel for some spirited driving.

The BEST of both worlds, basically. The GREATEST thing, however, is that I still enjoy driving STICK SHIFT.

I think, ultimately, that's probably what makes me enjoy driving the MOST. Perhaps, almost any car, I would be happy driving. As long as I'm rowing my own GEARS...

PS. Hope all are doing well.
NICE!! i've researched the mustangs and wrxes more lately, so re-reading this thread is more interesting this time around, and i think you made the right choice with the mustang (though the wrx would be nice too). do you have the premium package?? i wish you could get the V6 with that package. i think they're ditching the V6 this year though anyway...


Nah, I don't have the premium package, but don't miss the harsher ride (per my buddy who owned one) that it brings with it.

All I wanted was RWD power, stick-shift, and relatively, decent MPG on my 50 miles round trip each day to and fro work.

After all, I like driving like you people do here and the joy in driving manual is my number 1 prerequisite.
