If you do get snow tires, put them on all four corners. It makes no sense to put them on the rear wheels and then not on the wheels that actually steer the car. It's one area you do not want to cheap...

$6100 is going to get you a hell of lot more than 480 rwhp on the 5.0L. You also can't compare a 2006 price with today's price without adding in inflation. The Mustang has remained just as...

My advice if you just want to see what the car can do? Ignore the tree and the green light. Take your time to do a proper launch and forget your reaction time. Focus on getting a 60' time of under 2...

Ha, if only I were a millionaire! :) I understand how a house can be viewed as an asset and build equity and possibly give some cushion during retirement (as long as it's paid off). However, I don't...

It's funny you mention this. The older I get (I am 31 now) the more I realize that we really do only live once. Also, our life on this planet is but a mere blip on the scope of things. Might as well...

Yep, 7-speed. I thought it would be weird to have another gear but it feels very natural. The car will easily get 35 mpg on the highway in 4 cylinder mode :).

Talking Sold my GT and picked up a Stingray

I have been meaning to post this here. I traded in my Mustang. I had to do it after seeing a C7 in the flesh. I put my deposit back in July and picked her up a couple of weeks ago. My 2013 Mustang GT...

If you have the stock shifter, replace that piece of rubbish. I was going to replace mine, but I am taking delivery of a C7 soon (knock on wood). It is a sad excuse for a shifter.

I am lucky to break 19 mpg, but my car came with 3.73 gears. On my trip from VA to Florida, I managed about 22.8 mpg I believe. If I went down to 65 mph, I could probably get 24 mpg or so. My GTO did...

I would be willing to drive up there. The shop that would install it is in Largo anyway. Again, I would compensate you for your time :).

I didn't even order it yet since I was wondering about the bracket. Where about in Florida do you live? Maybe when I get it in we could figure something out.

Hey,

I am on MGW's website and I see the shifter for my car. Does the bracket come with the shifter? If not, where do I buy the bracket? I don't see it as an option. Thanks.

Question Fair price for a Shifter Installation?

I can't stand the shifter in my car. It is way too notchy and noisy and can sometimes be a bear to shift from 1-2 when you get too heavy with the pedal. I don't have the tools or the know how to get...

Just leave the light switch in the off position. I thought they only come on when the lights come on, or if the switch is on Auto when the lights are off. Maybe I am wrong.
