https://www.mustang6g.com/forums/threads/2021-roush-supercharger-granger-ford.156538/Sorry I’ve looked and there a a couple dealers named this.
Can you point me in the right direction that’s what I’m wanting to do
Basically you special order your GT 4% below invoice then add either:
Stage 1 is $8500 installed (700hp)
Stage 2 is $9000 installed (750hp)
And you either pick it up at the dealer or have it shipped to your house like I'm doing. Looks like there will be some extra delay with the plants closing for several weeks. But the used car bubble is supposed to last all year and the value of my Mustang keeps going up while the price of a new GT stays the same so its actually a good thing right now.
If you don't do most or all of your own work - that's some great advice right there - as in buy it restored.I like old cars, but I wouldn't ever own one. they dont drive as nice or as strong as new ones, the luxuries I couldn't give up.
cool cars but wouldn't catch me dead selling a modern car to restore an old car, money pits. if you want a restored, buy it restored.
This is just purely speculation, but I’m assuming the used car market is hot because:
1) Reduction of nationwide used inventories due to COVID keeping many people from traveling, (no mileage accumulation, no wear/tear) therefore people aren’t selling cars as quickly. Not to mention loss of income in some cases, which some people need to keep what they have until they can bounce back.
2) Car Rental Agencies aren’t retiring their fleets, again depleting the used car inventories
3) Carvana and the likes are now competing with the mainstream and mom-n-pop Dealerships by snapping up inventory at better “trade in” or “buy out” pricing than those others could offer.
4) Carvana and the likes are cornering the market on certain makes/models based on demand. For one example, I’ve noticed Carvana had at one point more 2012-2013 BOSS 302’s in their nationwide inventory than any other similar retail dealer - even more than what was listed on eBay from private party sellers.
5) If Carvana and others can offer good cash offers to sellers, word of mouth spreads and you have more folks signing up to them for a practically hassle free transaction, top dollar paid, than dealing with the haggling BS at a Dealership.
6) New car prices are getting to be absolutely ridiculous from every avenue. Many people happily buy used vehicles in excellent shape at a fraction of the price of new - plus they’re not getting nailed with massive depreciation valuations after buying a brand new car.
Just some observations.
Yeah no one takes my beloved GT without a check in my hand. Drug dealers can use cash if need be....Be just my luck that some wannabe test pilot beats on it as they test it out and then offer me lessSo from what you have posted, what's in the fine print of that contract you signed? Can they change the payoff on you after they have or come get the car?
They don't pay you on the spot like Carvana, you're waiting for them to send a check after you have signed it over and relinquished the car? That's the part I don't like about their process. Think of it this way - would you ever turn over your vehicle and let someone you don't know come and get it with the promise of paying for it 3 days later?
Are you still required to carry insurance on it while it's in "processing mode" and in their possession?
Really sucks to be in your situation... that's a lot of money. I'd consider that a pretty good offer from Carmax. Idk if you know but on local facebook pages there are people selling their boosted cars for 30-40 grand, but idk if taking over someone's toy is your cup of tea considering you don't know what they did with the car.I'm really tempted but after looking at prices for this same car with similar miles around 30k I'm thinking I should just fix it and keep it. The cost of engine replacement for labor and new engine is $9,800. Another shop quoted me $10,600. But I want to supercharge it, so I'm debating on spending 20k to get this car where I want it or sell it and just buy something that already comes supercharged for 50k'ish used. Specifically I was looking at the camaro zl1 @ 650hp.
Purposeful bump as I want to know if anyone else can chime in :^)Anyone sold their accident reported mustang? I talked to a guy and he got 25k on his gen2 with 50k miles however that was at carmax.
obviously through the internet these online dealers can’t gauge the damage estimates unless it’s seen in person so I’m sure that influenced by price of 24,999 for a loaded 19 with 14k miles through carvanaHouston too
if only I didn’t have an accident in mine this decision would be a no brainer
