    Don't get me wrong, I think your post is funny and I like it.

    But for me I absolutely buy a car for how it makes me feel. Performance numbers are a lot less important. Don't get me wrong, I like a car to be quick. But if it's quick and boring I'm not interested.

    Hopefully future Mustangs will please both of us. I want to retain the manual shift and gas engine even if an electric option is faster. And I might not want hybrid assist because a heavier car doesn't provide as good of a feel as a lighter one does. Doesn't matter if the hybrid is faster.

    Ya gotta come shop at Koons & Tedd Britt here in VA. It happens every fall.

    For those that don't know, Northern Virginia is the cheapest place in the country to buy new Ford vehicles. Koons & Ted Britt (both massive volume dealers with multiple locations) do a lot of business where they either ship the vehicle to the customer, or the customer flies/drives here to pick the vehicle up.

    When I bought my car last fall, the sales person was in the middle of a deal on an F-250 for a company back in Michigan, just outside of Detroit. The truck was being shipped to Michigan. It was substantially cheaper to buy the vehicle here, even with the shipping costs.

    The uber being cheaper thing depends on a lot of variables.

    I am 33. A lot of my friends once they got jobs out of college barely any of them had a car. Most them lived in the city(Chicago) because that's where their jobs were, so owning a car in the city doesn't really make sense. So they ubered everywhere. Some of them could even expense it to their companies instead of getting a car.

    Parking in Chicago is insanely expensive or you park on the street. Hell one buddy who did have a car, his parking spot in a garage was $300 a month

    +1. Britt was where I was in the fall! And you are correct. I have always shopped East TN, but Britt was another world in terms of price. I negotiated my car via text message and the salesperson says it happens all the time. They also had a ton of fully loaded perf pack verts. Those are really hard to find in my area. They said they have so many foreign IT folks in the area that WANT an iconic american car that they keep them in stock. I am looking at getting into an Expedition next winter and so was chekcing local prices this year to compare them to Britt...It isn't even close. Same options for 10-15% less advertised up there. If I can work out a trade with reasonable expectation of it being accurate next winter I will be back up there.

    I keep sharing the info here. Maybe sooner or later Britt & Koons will gift me a new Mustang for my efforts!!!:cwl::cwl:

    There's been multiple posters here from California talking price, thinking $1K or $1.5K off sticker was a good deal.

    That's very sad to hear.

    i
    Its definitely a-lot harder to negotiate with california dealers thats for sure. Most people dont usually walk out paying $5k less OTD unlike what ive seen others in this thread walking out paying 7k+ less OTD. I got very lucky on my car when I bought it brand new in Oct 2017 and am only paying 264 a month on my base GT 60 months @ 0%

    I am most certain he is nowhere near a "moron." If he wasn't concerned about Ford Performance's world wide sales, specifically those to the continent where auto racing was born, (Ford being the 5th largest auto maker in the world)... well, he wouldn't have a job. "Moron," really?

    Not everybody gets 0%. Some take the incentives over 0%. Others can not get that rate. I got 0% on my 15 GT. On my 18 GT, didn't happen.

    Does calling it MAGNARIDE void the warranty?
