Also, the 2011 didn't have the Recaro option and the standard seats offer little support. I also had a 2012 Boss 302 and much preferred the Boss to the GT500 even though the Boss lacked some of the niceties like nav, auto climate control, power seats and HID headlights.
Thanks! What did you think of it compared to the M in terms of daily use?
Would waiting for the 2013 be smart even though the extra power will probably only worsen traction?
