Traded in my wife's E90 for this beast...

I drove 8 hrs round trip last week with my brother to pick this 2011 5.0. Sadly, I had to give my wife my E92 and can only drive it on weekends now since she can't drive a manual...but I don't mind.

I'll take interior pics and post tomorrow... It has the black leather with white stitching, which I thinks looks great. Already put flowmasters on and might eventually go with a full exhaust but that is last on my list.
Mods this year:
1-1.5" drop
black billet grill
front splitter
window tint
bumper plugs
CAI
tuner

Awesome car, my friend just bought one. Suppose to perform +/- close to the new M3..but for alot cheaper. I've had 3 Mustangs in the past so I'm a bit biased.

I've been enjoying them for the last week. The higher gas prices, premium gas and 18 mpg does suck a little...but it's worth it.

Yeah I think the interior looks great, the only thing I would change is the steering wheel... This is the only mustang I have ever been interested in...except for the '03-'04 Cobra but the interior on those sucked.

Yeah I got an awesome deal... It's a GT Premium with Brembo brakes, 19" wheels, leather and basically everything you can get except for navigation. It has 5k miles and I picked it up for $25k with the sticker price for it new was $36k. I saved about $35k-$40k over the M3...but I would still love to have a M3, just not willing to fork over that much money right now. I'm only 24 so I have plenty of time.

Thanks.

Yeah I know, it will come. I just dropped my e92 about a month ago and when I gave to my wife she wanted it back to stock...luckily I talked her out of it. I didn't want 2 4x4 looking cars.

Yeah I told her that but she doesn't like the fact that she scrapes sometimes pulling into our driveway, I told her a little scrapage is good. So she said okay it can stay like it is. LOL.
