Default Picked up 2011 mustang 5.0 for the wife!

We bought a 2011 GT 5.0 for her as a DD. It's yellow (only 300 our so made in this color), 5.0, 6 speed, sport package with the brembo brakes and larger 19" wheel package. Her requirements were cloth interior (hates leather), and it had to have the grill fog lights.

We got a killer deal and are excited for nice weather! It's crazy how much power this thing has bone stock! We got the warranty extended to 100,000mi (1200mi on the clock now), but I'm curious what mods these things react well to.

First things first, TINTS!

Pics to follow later.

Sure did! Dude, the car is very nice and it has quite a bit of power for stock. It'll be a great car for her. She deserves it after a decade of driving minivans.

I forgot to mention that last night Dan. The MGW shifter relieves a LOT of the trans shifting issues.

VERY NICE!!!


I WANNA SEE THE PICS!!!!!



Good choice on the brembo's btw.. I realized right away the night and day difference on the brembos vs. stock/normal brakes when I test drove the 2011 5.0 (briefly contemplating getting one instead of the 2012 R I ended up ordering to have a more practical year round awd sport hatch)

Want to get a pic of it out in the sun. Seems like I'll have to wait a day or two.

If its the same pearl-ish yellow that they offer on the Boss 302, thats an awesome color.
