I agree with everyone else who said this car is overpriced. I bought my 05GT 3 years ago with 14K miles on it for $21.5K.

I meant that by putting on 4.10's you'd be pretty much voiding the warranty for the whole rear axle. The new body parts are also probably not covered.
The 3.73 gears are the highest I'd get for a daily driver, especially if you travel long distances. If not go ahead and get the 4.10's for great acceleration.

And before you spend $21,000 on a Mustang look at all the hundreds of others for sale for that price (or less).

I would avoid that car. Like mentioned before it's oddly dirty as hell underneath the hood. I may believe it for a car that's going to deal with winters, rain, possible dirty or dirt roads in those climates but you are buying this car in southern California. I would get a CARFAX on that car to make sure something is hiding in its past. That body kit makes me suspicious that something happened to it and the body kit is how they fixed/hid it.

Also 20k is still a ridiculous price for that car. Mods to not increase the value in most cases and when its a body kit, no. Especially that body kit. It doesn't even look complete or really put on well. You can see alignment issues and the paint just doesn't quite match to me. Also they didn't even put on the rocker panel piece.

And I'm 90% sure my friend I worked with bought her Audi from there a little over a year ago. That thing was a lemon. Had so many hidden quick fixes all over. Shortly after it started to leak oil, had electrical issues involving the headlights going off over bumps.

Seriously look at the other options suggested, put your own proper Eleanor kit on and you probably will still come out ahead over that suspicious car.

thanks everybody. i appreciate it. Well the car was purchased form a gentleman in france. he put 2k down through pay palwhen i went to test drive it. so i guess it must have been a deal for him. And you guys are right im better off goin with a used gt with low mileage for around 15-16.

Heres another thing. Im actually looking at a 04 cobra in arizona witch is around 390 miles away from me. It has 27k miles and they are asking 19,998. Im having my father go out there tommoroow to check it out. Is that a good deal for the cobra?
