    No. The GT is the normal V8 (Coyote) that we will get. GT350 is the flat planed love machine. That we wont get.

    Apparently we may get the GT350 depending on how well the other models sell.

    Or buy a V8 like a fucking man?

    Why would you even consider the 4cyl Mustang

    RS will smoke the V8 Mustang anyway, but still..

    Im just glad theres a manufacturer out there that has 2 different style cars that are for enthusiasts and both good cars regardless of how many wheels they drive or cylinders the engine has.
    Would be more than happy with Either a Stang or RS in the driveway.

    Don't forget XR8 ... another style, also a decent-ish performance car (OK it's disappointing that it's basically 10 years old, but still, pretty decent).
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    58K drive away with the wheel and tyre option. Could always paint the standard wheels black and save $2500. Definitely worth a test drive!

    I just walked up to dealer as its two doors down...completely out of the loop. They didnt even know it was on the website until I told them lol. Had no idea about the drive away price or when they can expect it. Guy put in a call to the state manager and was going to get back to me on a rough date of arrival.

    For 2.5k youd definitely hit the rims with spray paint and when you get bored order some dished Work rims for the same cash

    Edit:
    The multispoke stock wheels are way better than the factory black ones.. factory standard ones would look sweet painted black anyway!

    I was thinking black powder coat on the factory wheel, with the wrinkled finish.

    Better tyres on the larger rims too.

    The black forged wheels come with Michelin Pilot Cup Sport tyres or something. Worth the extra $?

    I can't decide if I like the standard silver multi spoke wheels. From some angles they look like they belong on a Fairlane lol. In other angles and in darker colours in some videos they look quite good.

    Performance wheels with the michelins are definitely the way to go IMO. Look heaps better than the standard ones. Not only that, the cup 2s are supposedly an awesome all round tyre and don't wear out when you leave your driveway like the old ones.
