Hi everyone, quick story to introduce my self. Im in the need of a new car since my 04 wrx sti was totaled. My brother has a 2009 bullitt wich i fell in love with after driving it. I have buddies with the s197 mustangs and i like the looks of them. So i found this one at a dealer about 50 miles away and i love the look and everything done it. It looks like a reincarnation of the Elenor mustang from my favorite movie gone in 60 secounds.
i would like to know what body kit this car has? Or is it a bunch of different parts put together. The car is a 2006 with 44k miles, they are asking 23 but a salesman said he can give it to me for 21500. Its completly stock and looks like leather interior but the inserts look aftermarket in the seats.
What do you guys think? Also how much would it cost to get 4.10s installed from ford on this car? The stock mustang gts performance isnt enough so i gotta fix that first.
Performance: Vortech High Output intercooled kit, JBA longtubes with catted H and Borla stingers, 4.10 gears, Spec stage 2+ clutch with aluminum flywheel, MGW short throw shifter. Koni Yellows with eibach pro kit, Steeda HD strut mounts, BMR panhard bar. Appearance: Roush front bumper, shelby billet grile, Roush spoiler, Raxiom 2013 style lights, 6k Hids, Black saleen wheels staggered set up on Nitto 555 with 255/45/18 front and 285 /40/18 rear
the engine compartment looks a little dirty and it should match the exterior, so that raises a few questions for me.
The car is probably off warranty but since you are already considering 4.10's I wouldn't worry about reliability much.
They're asking way too high. Those body panels actually decrease the value of the car, and a stock 06 GT with 44k miles is only worth about 16-18, and that's a GENEROUS offer. I would try and get them down to 14 or so, or just find a different car. If you like the Eleanor Style anything by cervini would be golden.
THE CRUISER: 2007 4.0L Convertible; Black w/ Leather, White Striping THE DESTROYER: 2006 4.6L Coupe; Redfire w/ Red Leather, Silver Striping
yea i also feel 21 is to much for the car. i have found mustang gts for around 17-18-19k. The thing about it is, how much would it cost me to transform a regular gt into what this car is. The elenor style. i would assume around 2-3gs so its kinda already included in this car. Feel free to correct me if im wrong, im on here for facts and opinions.
ok looking car, bit much for me personally but whatever. If you really like it, tell the salesmen he can give it to you for 20,000, otherwise I would walk. Like someone said before, all that crap on the car is not worth anything unless its the right person.
way too much. The body looks sharp, but look how ratty that looks under the hood. They should be ashamed to have that car in the show room. They clearly do not care and are trying to make some cash.
Guaranty when that car came in as a trade in, they told the person that the mods make it worth less in trade as they will have to blah blah blah and then low ball the crap out of him. Then they put it up for the price of the cost of one of those cars + all the mods at full value. There grabbing fistfuls of cash at both ends.
As others have said, 18 sounds reasonable for that car, with those mods already done. There going to sell you on the body, but it could be a nightmare under the hood, as whoever had that car clearly only cared about how it looked on the outside, and not about taking care of it under the hood.
If they won't come down to like 19 or less, seriously just walk. You can get a stock GT in the 15 to 16 range and make it your own for less then it will cost to buy someone elses dream.
omg, you have GREAT cars in your area, just searched near the address of J star motors, they are CRAZY over priced. If I were you I would hop on this car, worth way more and looks better IMO: http://tinyurl.com/y69cla4
