  • Go for it!!

    First - thank you to all those who advised us on our 'journey'.

    We decided on a silver Premium GT convertible!! It is on order and should be in our hot little hands on March 21st! Can't wait to play!!

    Thanks again for all of the help and support!

    Second - JUST DO IT!!

    Do not pass up the chance to own one of these cars!

    We rented a six for the weekend - plenty fast and fun - sold us on the whole Mustang 'thing'. (But not the same as a GT!)

    Initially we were looking at $1,000 under MSRP on the GT; and we did get a much better deal. So I'd think sixes should be going well under sticker. Look on the Ford web site - they even list 'cost'. Just remember that the 'cost' number has 3% holdback and all sorts of other dealer incentives factored in. I'd offer 'cost' and give them the holdback. Probably would not go much over that now - plenty of sixes around at other dealers.

    Good luck!
  • Do any of the new Mustangs have heated seats? I have decided I want a Mustang sometime between now and my 50th birthday next year. Don't know if I can wait that long. I am reading every word you all have to say to get all the information I need before then. What do you all think of that new light blue color? Also with a convertible, do people that have them, use them much, or would it be better to get a hard top? They sure look sharp. Thanks.
  • Try leasing if you can get Fords Red Carpet Tier 1 lease. Interest is only 1.25% /36 months or 1.0% for 24 months.
    I got mine at $150 over invoice. Total interest for your 36 months with only $2,000 drive off will probably be only $500. Your residual will be about 50% of MSRP for the coupe. You can buy the car after the lease.
  • Heated seats aren't an option for the new stangs. Maybe a new model down the road. That's one of the few things that I miss about my prior car. The others are sunroof and radio controls on the steering wheel :(

    But you can't go wrong with a new Mustang. I love my GT. I'm not that crazy about the light blue color, but what's important is that you like it. Good luck

    You can get aftermarket accessories to heat up the leather seats.

    I wanted heated too but have found the seats dont feel very cold. And the car heats up extremely fast.

    The windveil blue is a popular color with women.

    Does anyone know what the different Ford purchase plans are? I've heard A-plan, which I think is for employees only. I've also heard of D-plan and X-plan.
  • lmmlmm Posts: 70
    just read heated seats are an option for 2007.
  • A-Current Ford Employee
    Z-Retired Ford Employee
    D-Ford Dealer pricing (for the salesman)
    X-Supplier Pricing

    Hope this helps

    07 is getting heated seats that SUCKS :mad:

    How long did you have to wait to get your GT from your original order date? I have a GT convertible on order and it's taking forever!

    Expecting the 'ghost' to arrive in 13 days! (Lucky 13?)

    But we were lucky. Our dealer already had a black GT convertible on order and they were able to change the color on that car for us. We did not get the side impact airbags that I wanted; but we should get it 24 days after signing the order!

    Damned! Can't wait!

    Good luck with yours!
  • Cookie, to answer your convertible question;
    I have an '05 GT convertible and I love it. There's nothing like the "topless" experience on a warm sunny day. Heck, I even dropped the ragtop on a couple 40 degree days in February and took a short drive with hat, gloves, and a heavy coat. You sure get some odd looks! :blush:

    However, convertibles may not be for everyone. They are noisier than a hardtop even with the top up, and although the Mustang has excellent design to keep the wind rush out of the cabin at speed, once you get above 70 or so it gets to be quite "exhilarating". Also, when you leave a car with a cloth roof in a parking lot, everyone with a pocketknife has a "key" so you never want to leave anything visible in the cabin.
    Regardless of any shortcomings, I wouldn't trade it for the world (Unless I can figure out a way to afford a Shelby convertible!)

    Good luck :shades:

    Does anyone know of dealers in the northern NJ area who will sell a GT convertible at X-plan? Are you more likely to get X-plan pricing by buying off the lot or by ordering? Any insight would be appreciated.
  • graphicguygraphicguy SW OhioPosts: 6,896
    ZLS....no hamr in asking a dealer to sell at X plan on an in-stock unit. What's the worst they can say? NO!

    I would try it on the last day of the month when the dealership may be trying to make some quotas, though.

    I live outside USA and want to buy 2 Mustang GT's. One 'triple black' convertible auto and one Black coupe, stick shift (unfortunately one is for a friend - I can't afford two!). Both leather trim with 18" wheels.
    Have had prices from WA dealers and they only offer a few hundred below window price on a 2 car deal.

    As I'm outside USA, I don't care where the dealer is located, but West Coast is easier for me. I need a dealer I can trust, as I've heard horror stories of wrong color/options etc when the car is delivered, buy which time it is too late as I have to pay before shipment overseas.
    I would also like the best price I can, but they aren't very negotiable.
    Would it be best to wait until 07 model, or is the difference minimal?
    Does anyone know of any second hand 05's or 06's?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Great forum.

    david....you've got a double "whammy". First, Spring is just about here and that's when these cars sell the best. So, it's going to be tough going to get a "great" deal on any GTs....particularly convertibles.

    Used ones are still being advertised around me (midwest) for their original MSRP stickers. I'm certain that they can be bought for less than that price since they're used, but that should give you an indication about how "hot" these cars are in the marketplace.

    You're 2nd issue is you are trying to negotiate the price from outside the country. I don't know how many dealers are going to be willing to negotiate without you being present, in their showroom, with checkbook in hand.

    Good luck!
  • lmmlmm Posts: 70
    There is absolutely no reason why you cannot completely negotiate buying a car via email in todays electronic world. Except for a dealer who does not offer internet buying.

    If they want your business you can do it, whether you can get the deal you want is a different matter.

    Have you tried FordofKirland.com they have 6 GT convertibles in stock and at least 10 Gt coupes and of late were offering a coupe GT near invoice.

    Thanks for the input. I will be in USA in April and again in June, so will find the 'most co-operative' dealer on the net, then make a visit, check book in hnad!
    I'll be in Los Angeles and salt Lake in April and Wisconsin in June, so anyone who has expereince with dealers in those areas your input would be appreciated. Thanks again.

    I've always been able to strike a better deal by being in the showroom, with checkbook in hand, than the internet quotes I've received.
