  1. Pre facelift vs facelift S550

    The 2015-2017 definitely has the better looking front end, but that’s not to say that the 2018+ is bad looking, it still looks excellent. The Gen 3 Coyote put it over the edge for me, it just wants to rev. Can’t go wrong though.
  2. Running Up that Hill

    So my wife and I have been house shopping for a bit and we decided to take the Mustang on Friday to do so. I was driving down a hill when I got a warning that the from sensors for safe & smart had failed. At that moment, I shifted into 1st to turn around and it felt like the engine coughed. As I...
  3. 87...89...91..93..Octane ??

    My wife keeps begging me to put 87 in, but I told her that I won’t give in to Adolf Putin. Besides, I live in Texas, we don’t back down here.
  4. Mach1 vs GR Supra vs Nissan Z races (all auto) by Jason Camissa

    My 2 year old rides back there, he loves the Mustang and I love sharing it with him.
  5. Why DIDN'T you get a camaro?

    Because it's like looking out of a bunker, the interior ergonomics were designed by morons, and have you seen it? It looks like a basking shark. That said, they are fabulous to drive in stock form. Mustang has a better interior, you can see out of it, have you seen it looks, and you can rev the...
  6. Why does everyone else drive like a pos bc we have stangs?

    Happens to me all the time with diesel pickups and Teslas. Guy followed me home in a Model 3 trying to race. I just don’t get why people need to swing d**k here, I drive at perfectly reasonable speeds and I save any enthusiastic driving in places I know no one else will be.
  7. 2021 Mustang Mach 1 Laps Nurburgring in 7:58.29 Min - by Sport Auto

    Was this car running Cup 2 tires? I don't see much aero here either. Was this just a base Mach 1?
  8. Coming from MOPAR to Mustang. Too much of a sports car???

    I considered the Challenger as well as the Mustang and I absolutely loved both. Looking at the challenger makes me weak at the knees, especially the 392 Widebody, not that the Mustang isn't a jaw dropper either. I got a better deal on the Mustang and the rev happy nature of the Coyote, better...
  9. Mustang S550! Is it a pony car or a sports car

    My mother has a P100D Ludicrous mode, and while it is insane, face melting actually, comparing an EV is to an ICE car is like comparing a jet to a propeller aircraft, it's all relative. I prefer the efficiency of an EV, but I prefer driving an ICE car. I also don't trust Elon Musk, that stupid...
  10. Mustang S550! Is it a pony car or a sports car

    My base GT is really a grand tourer. I would categorize the more performance oriented ones as sports cars to be sure.
  11. Why DIDN'T you get a camaro?

    I have quite of bit of seat time in both. My wife and I got an upgrade on our rental and granted, it was a 4 pot, but the Camaro's handling was sublime. While my Mustang handles well, it is not at the level at the Camaro. With mods, yes, it will be every bit the equal. Where the Camaro fell...
  12. This car never ceases to amaze me.

    I had to do a drive from Round Rock to Katy and I averaged 28mpg with 500 miles on the car. It's a fantastic long distance cruiser.
  13. How many of us men without hair own S550s?

    Full head of brown hair with a bushy red beard.
  14. Threats to our Prize Possesions [WARNING: NO POLITICS]

    How do these always end in politics? I am here for Mustang stuff, not to watch people go at it, I see enough of that in real life.
  15. New seats installed today

    How am I just finding out about Katzkin? $1900 looks very reasonable to recover the seats, this is high up on my list now.
  16. On a scale of 1-10, how bad of an idea is buying a new S550 in the next 6 months, and other buying questions

    Totally get it, my wife is 6'2" and I am 6'3" and our son is a year old, so it is a rear facing seat. I would say that I am not even attempting to get his seat into the car until he is front facing in a year. Thankfully my wife has a big car, so none of this is ever an issue.
  17. What's so Special about a California???????

    I honestly wish I had gotten the CS package for the grille alone. I wish it was't $1k+ to put a grille on a car.
  18. On a scale of 1-10, how bad of an idea is buying a new S550 in the next 6 months, and other buying questions

    If this is your primary family car, I would even bother test driving one. I only get away with it because my son very seldomly goes out in the Mustang.
  19. Front license plates

    I practically live in Hutto and WilCo Sheriff has nothing better to do than hide on the really fun roads and wait.
  20. What impact will battery weight have on future real Mustangs if Hybrid or full EV?

    I see a couple of ways forward with EVs. Clearly lithium mining is not sustainable, but the battery packs are good for about 400k miles, so at least they last. That said, battery technology is coming a long way very quickly. If people could just get over the stigma, nuclear power is very clean...
