No regrets as it was a graduation present in pretty much stock form. A V8 would be nice to have but personally I like being different and I work with what I have. Eventually I will buy a V8 powered Mustang because I simply can't get rid of the one I have now, too much money in it and too much sentimental value. Also people expect a V8 to be fast, not a V6.

No regrets. I was considering getting a 2010 GT, and then the 2011 V6 came out...

The first Mustang I bought was a v6, bought what I could afford at the time and loved it.

No regrets with any of my Mustang choices.

Preety much what I said.. Da** redfire your car looks bad a** with that hood. I'm like you I can not and will not sell my mustang but I will in the very near future buy a 2010 + challenger SRT-8! Sorry for the thread jack. Continue..

I have owned both and I must say I dont care for a sixxer but I admittedly will say I was not blown away by the power of the 4.6 however its been fun upgrading and knowing now I have a good running stang. I really dont care for my fiance's new fusion b/c its a four cylinder but it has all the options so it is really nice.

Mine was a gift, but I want a V8 something awful, I going to put a V8 in my car as soon as I get a chance. Like Redfire said my car has to much soul in it for me to get rid of it.

Yeah it was a v8 or none for me. My pops has a 2011 GT500 so after driving that beast around for a while I had to get the classic mustang exhaust tone.
