    Ok, I know this will be a debat of things that depends, since my lease is ending next year, just want to here what's you guys' suggestions. Financing a Mustang is for sure, just can't decide go for eb or ditch some of my bolt-ons and go for the traditional muscle...

    depends on your preferences and driving. if you don't mind the 4 cyl sound, don't drag race or do any high speed runs, do mostly just around town stuff, or want a lighter platform for pure handling purposes, then go for the ecoboost

    I would call your local dealership and test drive the GT since you have already driven an ecoboost. Make sure you try one with performance package and one without.

    I think good handling, gas mileage and lower price are the EB's strengths. The GT's strengths are raw hp, a sweet sounding V8, and probably resale value. And more potential in regard to hp if you ever decide to do some serious modding. If you are slanted more toward luxury for the money, a premium EB won't break the bank.

    I figured if you weren't dead set on a pp2 from the get go it wouldn't be the right choice for you, it's more of an out of the box track toy. I figured the base gt vs the pp1 maybe even pp1 with magnaride for luxury would be more worthwhile and you probably cant test drive every vehicle on the lot.

    well i imagine the GT engine weighs a little more, maybe 80lbs, added to the front end yeah that makes a big difference

    I was never really a car guy and bought an EB almost on a whim. That thing is a friggin gateway drug to the GT and cars in general. Got me trying out all my friends cars. 1SS, 370Z, my dad's old 911, Superbee Charger, etc. Had to upgrade. Now in a 2020 GT PP1. Couldn't be happier with it.
