Cool 2013 GT Premium Manual W/Track Package and Recaros!

EDIT: Picked it up last night. LOVE the car. Here's a few pics and a link to an album of pics. And an update, they gave me $22k for my trade








Photos from a cruise to skyline drive on 3/31/12! Let me know what you think!

I signed the buyers order last week and should hopefully pick it up this week. Trading my 2010 in on it - they are giving me $21k for it which is above blue book so I'm happy with that. Especially considering last summer I went to carmax to see how much they'd give me and they said $19k at that time and since then I've added probably 15k miles (and the car is out of the factory bumper to bumper warranty) and the car is older. But anyway I'm getting the only one within 300 miles with the recaros and the track pack. I'm pretty excited

I'll be sure to update the thread with more info and photos when I get the car, as well as videos on my youtube channel of the car itself, track apps, etc.

I do want some tips from people about what I should do for the car. I haven't really followed info on the 5.0's much since I currently have the 4.6, so I'm pretty far behind. I do know with a cai, exhaust, and tune i should be around 400 at the wheels though lol. The first mods I have planned are the CS rear diffuser, CS front splitter, pype bomb axle back, and some lowering springs. And hopefully some companies come out with some decklid panels for the new car (if the current 2010-2012 ones wont fit). Other than that though, I'm not sure exactly what I want to do with the car. And just curious. I've heard a lot about the Cylinder #8 issue... Is this something I should be really that worried about? I know Bama has a warranty if it is an issue, but I'm still curious. I'm also curious if any companies have underdrive pulleys for the 5.0? I haven't been able to find any, and I'd really be interested in some. On my 4.6 I gained about 10hp and 8tq from the pulleys and would think I'd gain at least that much on a 5.0, if not more.

Nice man, I really like these new 2013, especially the front end looking like a gt500.
I'm considering buying a 2013 but the price is similiar to a used 2010 gt500 which i'm also considering. When she arrives let us know what ya think.
