I'd want a Bullitt that's stripped . And the price ruins it. I'd pay $5k for the paint , wheels , and logos , and maybe a Bullitt steering wheel/embroidered seats or something . But the asking price for the Bullitt option is too much in my opinion.

I just wanted a unique powerplant.

And I disagree with some of the stuff you said.

They would not add a 5.2 for $5k . For $13k they would be able to . And it would be worth it .

The wheels were preference, I was just pointing out ‘you can buy the bolt on bits far more cheaply than it costs to buy the limited edition car to begin with’.


What's a premium plus ?

I apologize, I just meant "Premium".

All GT Convertibles 15+ are Premium now IIRC? and 14 and prior could be Non-Premium's.

It is not just the wheels (although that change would enhance the looks greatly). The car just looks boring and uninspired AF.

I'd agree. Usually the Bullitt really adds to the look while still being very minimalist. In this case, not so much

Totally agree, the car just looks boring. It looks way more like a base model trying to be a “bad ass V8 performer without the price tag or performance” than the opposite.

Ugh, those wheels are indeed boring. They certainly don't do any justice to that car.

I think the wheels are ok , but not for the price tag . They look nice/average , which I think Ford was going for that look , nothing over the top . The no 5.0 badge is a little weird . I like the car it's just a little too much . I'd probably have more inclination of buying one if it was $40k ish.

Normally this, just not this version. And the price doesn't matter, I hadn't even look at that.
