It's taught me that a lot of people seem to think you cant have fun in a car that not RWD or V8, and you're a moron if you think otherwise.

Sometimes I hate the Mustang community. It has great points, but it's also more toxic and "dude bro" than any Escort, Focus, Honda or Nissan community that I've ever been part of. If it wasn't for Ford bringing back DHG I'd have likely moved on from it and gone to an import again.

I like all makes and models; 4, 6 and 8. cylinders too, as long as they’re hopped up (unless of course we’re throwing luxury into the equation).

2020 HPP Ecoboost premium coupe
The build assembly and paint quality since 2015 is STILL hit or miss at 85%. Should be closer to 90-95%. Flat Rock has the most inconsistent/sloppy build quality of all the Ford plants I know of. Expeditions (for example) are built beautifully as are Broncos.
Well, all I can say is my 2020 Ecoboost Premium coupe with HPP (chassis L1094) + handling pack and A10 at 2 years and 30k miles is one of the best screwed together cars I've ever owned. Not one problem, no scweaks, rattles, etc. since new. Rapid Red paint finish is very good quality also. It is also a pre COVID car which could make a difference. Production vehicles all have variability. I'm very happy with mine so far!

Mustangs just naturally attract that crowd. Few cars offer this much horsepower for such good value.

I guess I’m an oddball as well. I wouldn’t have seen myself in a Mustang had Ford kept the traditional muscle car formula. Twists and turns are where I get my kicks. But I also learned the experience of a V8 is very different from a 6 or 4 pot. I love it. You can’t really speak about it until you’ve driven one.

Well, I always loved Mustangs. It started with my Uncle's 64 1/2 and my dad's '65 and has gone on ever since. Between my brother, myself, my father and uncle, we've owned and 10 total, and currently own five. What my S550 has taught me is how a well engineered suspension and chassis can be on a $40,000 vehicle! With a few modes: wider wheels and tires, stiffer springs, camber plates, the handling is unreal, especially for car that weighs north of 3,700 pounds!

That is an AWESOME Collage.... It's what this community and the Mustang is all about...

Mine is the same. 2020 HPP, built in Feb 2020 and rock solid, tight as a drum. Great Magnetic paint.

This is a great car. I have replaced the stock Pirelli P Zero Corsa 4s with Michelin PS4S tires. Night and day! Probably my biggest complaint is Ford's use of Pirelli tires on these cars.

2 things. 1. Even if I park far out in any lot someone will park next to me and 2. I might as well start washing my car before I even finish the first wash. Black cars just attract birds.

...yea, that. ^^^^
However, you should drive a Challenger Scat Pack 392 Hemi; 485 hp.
Or maybe the 700+ Hellcat... not me though; 460 is more than adequate for me.

That while I respect their performance metrics, chevy motors sound like dump trucks and their 6k redlines are so boring
Well, they are limited due to their pushrod OHV classic designs, which explains why the Camaro also needs 6.2L to barely edge out the 5.0L GT. Their fuel economy is also bad as my classmate has an SS automatic that only gives him 13 mpg in town; mine does 18+ in same driving conditions.
