2019 Mustang GT Premium PP1
You may have viewed my last post about how I totaled my 2019 mustang gt on saturday. It had pp1, 10 speed, and was a 300a car. I added the sync 3 w nav ($2200 upgrade) and the digital cluster ($2400 when i ordered it) as well as red leather seats. Said and done, my car appeared as a premium besides the mycolor door sills, cup holders, etc. Now, I am wondering what your guys thoughts are on getting a new car?

Should I wait until January of next year (8-9 months) for my 18th birthday to get a new one, or should I push do to it now? Thinking of waiting because it will atleast be a bit easier to finance when I’m 18. (I plan to pay nearly half down, so not worried about financing qualifications.)

Last but not least, what options should I get with the new car? I’m taking my instrument cluster out of the 19 because it’s the smartest thing to do. I either could sell it and get 401a, or I could keep it and get 400a; however, I was thinking of going with 301a and adding katzkin red leather seats like I did last time, as you still get ambient lighting with 301a. Smartest thing would be to go 300a again and install my radio and cluster, and program the drive modes, but 301a is a must. I need the extra speakers and all of mycolor.

I just want some opinions here. 301a (at the least), pp1, and 10 speed are my required options. Either way if I got 401a or 300a I would have my digital cluster in there. I’d like safe and smart too for adaptive cruise control but not sure if it’s worth it. Let me know your thoughts

May I speak as an adult here. You have very little driving experience and already totaled a Mustang. You are not even 18.

Do you think you are mature enough for the car?

Are you really able to handle that much power?

I just want to keep you safe. Next time, you could be injured or dead.

Get an education with the money. Then get the car. If it were me, that is what I would do. Cars will come. You only get one life. Learn from your current experience.

If it were me, I would wait to see what the Gen7 brings before buying.

Hey man, don't traumatize the little sperm.

We need little sperms to be interested in cars like this, or they'll disappear.

To hell with what car to get, I'm just wondering what a (two post) 17 year old whose record is a totaled Mustang that already had at least one body shop repair before the total is going to be paying for insurance.

What am I reading? You need a used four cylinder vehicle or take the bus. Yikes.

I'd be surprised if you can even get insured in a brand new GT after totaling a 1.5 year old one at 17.... Not to mention the 2nd collision claim from the hit and run.
