Plans right now are little; window tint, retro style gear shift ****, and maybe a front and rear spoiler. Down the road I might consider lowering springs and wheels, and a cold air kit and power programmer.

Thank you! I think this car is going to lead to my wife wanting to kill me because I already want to do stuff to it!

Default Can't be beat!

I have a 2013 GT Premium convertible with 6 speed stick and have over 30,000 miles in less than2 years even though it spends at least 4 months every winter undriven during the wintewr months. I see no reason to modify anything as it is one heck of a machine right out of the box.

I just picked up a new 2014 GT with the track pack and Recaros, I'm still pinching myself trying to believe I finally have my favorite car since I was a kid.

Default got mine 3 days ago

Got mine last Saturday. It's a 2014 GT with the premium package, brembo brakes and in Ruby Red. I spent the whole day, well afternoon, claying and waxing the car. I didn't drive it today as it will be raining later. I ordered some stuff for it last night, GT500 exhaust, white round shifter ****, license plate frame. Will post pics this weekend. Oh this is my third Stanford. First was a black 95 SVT Cobra, then a 97 black SVT Cobra.

April 17th was the 50th anniversary of the Ford Mustang and there was much publicity for that event. I arrived at the local dealer hoping to see for myself this redesigned model and to my amazement none were on hand. In fact even though there were banners, balloons and refreshments none of the sales personnel had any idea when they would receive one or any of the details, brocures, pricing, let alone when one could order or the leadtime to shipment, etc. Instead they offered me a piece of cake and a 50 year poster depicting all of the models since the original. Upon leaving I made it quite clear of my disappointment since it was highly unlikely that I would go to NYC's Empire State building for a gander.

The car is only now available for order and will be in the dealers sometime in the fall, early winter. At the two HUGE 50th celebrations, they had 2015 Mustangs on display, and from what I understand, thousands of people brought their Mustangs to the events.

Default Got mine on May 24!

2014 Mustang GT Premium Automatic, waiting on the tune to arrive and lurking here and there to try and decide what else I'd like to do for this beautiful ride. Admittedly would love to run a supercharger on it.

You just might want to reconsider supercharging this engine due to the powder metal connecting rods, they are not as strong as the forged steel variety used in the GT500.
