    I'm definitely waiting. The major reason is I won't be in a position to buy until late fall or winter. And since I've been waiting for years for my next Mustang, I'm going to want all the goodies I can afford. I plan on having this car for a long long time so I'm going to get exactly what I want; active exhaust, magneride, PP

    18 Mustang will be at 455HP. I would buy an 18 if I didn't have my 15 GT. I'd also buy the automatic, even though every car I've ever owned, was a manual.

    I like the gauges in the 2018; but the new front is kinda lame

    Just got off the phone with Lebanon Ford, ordered a lightning blue gt, pp, 401a. 727 supercharger and other bits will be installed after it arrives in March :-D

    I came, I saw (the 18), it made me yack.

    Actually I don't hate it, but IF I want an s650 later, buying a 17 and paying it down is a better choice... And I really do like the hood better on the 17.

    GL to ask those who wait, I'll be a little jelly, but won't regret my choice.

    I don't know if anyone has discussed this, but I wonder if PP, magride and 10-speed auto can be had together.

    I heard that the magride can only be added if you opt for PP, which cannot be ordered with the auto for all 15-17 models. I don't know if Ford has changed this rule.

    I'm kinda in the same boat. I plan on keeping my next mustang for a while and really have my heart set on getting her in grabber blue. I'm not thrilled about the cosmetic changes for the '18 (not yet, at least), and I don't see it being that significant of a performance bump. I have a lot of other moving parts in my life right now (e.g., buying a house, moving) otherwise I'd probably just get a '17 literally tomorrow and call it a day. Damn you, Ford. I don't understand why you offer colors for such limited periods of time.
