Ford website has a configurator just for the Mustang. There are so many ways to customize or have the car look different in so many ways from front end to rear end and of course it's all factory.

Well I started modding the Mustang. The first was catch cans (jlt). The other two mods were planned, but way a head of schedule because of the price I was able to get on them. I ordered the rear seat delete for almost a $500 in savings and the brake duct cooling for almost $170 in savings. These saving were off the best prices i could find on the internet. As I mentioned wasn't planning on getting these so soon as I wanted to change out the shifter first. Oh well sometimes a deal is to good to pass up.

I am in the market now between the R/T and a 5.0 GT... from an unbiased opinion I gotta say forum vs. forum... it seems that the new mustangs are having alot more problems than the challenger, or any average car for that matter. For me, exterior look goes to the challenger. Interior goes to the mustang. Speed goes to the mustang. But right now the problems with the motor, tranny, paint...etc has me heavily leaning towards the challenger. Of course these are only my opinion.
However, I really cant believe the mt-82... a transmission which is mounted to the engine while the shifter is mounted to the body... just sounds like a bad idea.

I have been all over the mustang forums and just like the Challenger forums people get upset and vent their frustration on the internet. When you look at the amount of cars sold compared to the cars having problems you are unlikely to get a lemon. That said nobody wants to be the one who gets the lemon and no car coming from the manufacturer should be a lemon.

As far as the two cars go it comes down to what you want. If your looking for a cruiser and speed doesn't matter the Challenger is the way to go. The Challenger will offer better ride quality over a Mustang. If your looking for speed and a sportier ride the Mustang is the way to go. My Challenger is my cruiser. My Mustang will be a SCCA ESP race car. Good luck with your choice.

I completely agree with you. Odds of getting a lemon are pretty low. But there seems to be more unhappy people over on all fords. Not just full on catastrophe (blown tranny, #8 cylinder)... but even people who cant stand the mt-82 under normal operation. I think youd be nuts if you dont take some of these things into consideration. Cant I jut have one of each

So I pull out of a local nursery here day before yesterday and there in front of me 1 car up in front of the line is a ****ING GORGEOUS 11'+ SRT392 Challenger all black ,tight feet and he had USMC something RETIRED and a couple other smaller USMC and military stickers on the back window, couldnt even hear it but I watced all the other cars around me and their occupants pretty damn much stare at that Challenger until the light turned green, 392 badge on the left side of the wing and damn! car had crazy sex appeal. It's just FF'n sexy. I see 5.0's in trafic and unless it looks like a Saleen-Shelby-500 etc, people dont really look at it. Just my observations.
If I could get any other car right now it'd be stupid hard to choose between a all black blown 392 Challenger or a new c6 all black all stick of course.
