Have you driven the new 5.0? It's a pretty good bang for the buck. It's a lot of car for $30K less than an M3/C63/ISF.
Sorry if it got off topic - It steered towards the older truck as it got into details of Ford's lack of quality and innovation for the past 20-30 years, the stigma attached to their vehicles and reliability concerns, etc.
I hope the new Fords are nicer and I hope you have great luck with yours. They're definitely doing better.. I think Ford is making progress. I have driven lots of Mustangs, but not the newer ones. I hate the way they look, I hate the interiors and I have too many doubts about the overal smaller details, fit and finish, driving feel, technology of the cabin, etc etc.
Sorry to digress - (I just see the POS in the driveway every day)
