Why are you buying a 2017 GT instead of waiting?

Thanks

Not anything in particular. I'll see stuff for sale in a town I don't know in PA, and when I look it up, it's near Philly. Just seems like it happens a lot. Now that you bring up car 'n' coffee, I should look it up.

2nd that thought process !

My plan will be to keep it mainly stock while under warranty....then possibly put on a supercharger if I want more power afterward.

Sounds like the same plan I have in mind. :thumbsup:

I've only had one other new car and it had hardly any issues under warranty other than the brakes being cross threaded. Still, I never understood...why pay for a new car (over a year or two old) and then do something to void the warranty? But to each his own.

I got 0% 72 months, and I'll hold on to it as the payments seem to go higher each time I try to upgrade. My 14 Cyclone was $110.00 cheaper a month but 5% interest and had 45,000 miles. Styling cues could influence me in 2020.

Just ordered my 17 a few weeks ago.

I didnt want the droopy faced front end, looks ugly IMO. I was interested in the Magneride and 10spd, but they arent enough to make me buy that smushed front end.

I also have been waiting to make this purchase for nearly 5 years. I am finally financially ready, and simply cannot drive a 2002 Hyundai any longer.

Beautiful car!!

The interior...I can't tell if that white line on the driver's headrest is the stitching, ceramic interior, or leather....what did you go with?

Not sure if I've shared it but the Magnetic has been my favorite since day 1 and is the color I'll likely be going with. But that Lightning Blue is definitely a close 2nd!! Problem is, right now I drive (limp) around in an 02 Forester with 181k that is very close in color. I need a change!

Thanks for sharing!

1- already been saving for a year. 18 release dates would mean waiting another year (no point buying a car that goes straight into winter storage).
2 - still not sold on the looks, I wasn't interested in magride, the dual more exhaust didn't impress from the limited sound clip available, and I don't anticipate the performance enhancements to be orders of magnitudes better.
3 - the increased risk of owning first year vehicle (usually reasonably low on modern cars but it still exists). I may have overlooked this if I lived the car immediately.
4 - I have a feeling that similarly equipped, the 18 will be more than the usual inflation increase in price.

Ceramic interior - Wanted something different than all my all black interiors I have had over the years - It is more of a warm gray than a white and looks great with the Lightning Blue - We will see how hard it is to keep looking good over time - Better not spill a coffee :)

And welcome to page 4! :)

That's great! Haven't seen more than a handful with the ceramic interior. If I was more careful and didn't have a small child, I'd probably go with it.

Any chance of a shot showing the interior against the LB?

Thanks
