Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

I think that this is not a CPO car so much as it has a third party extended lifetime power train warranty.

I asked already about dumping it for a deal, but they don't do that.

I like the look of this one. Though, I'm curious how GM parts fit into a mustang GT  lol

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

Deal is DONE.

Just bought a 2014 GT Premium. Sterling Gray Metallic with black leather. 19" painted alloys and GT500 rear spoiler. Has only the 'Comfort Package', which is heated seats/mirrors, power passenger seat, and the pony projector lights on the mirrors.

We discovered that the entire trunk carpet/floor was missing, but the dealership is taking care of that.

Ask was $24,800, I offered $22,750. We settled on $23,000. I got financing through a different bank at 3.14% for 60 months, and 90 days deferred payments. The price still includes the lifetime powertrain warranty.

In hindsight, the exhaust is not as loud as I remembered (especially considering the 'no-deal' red car). The scratches are modest. The only issue is the steering wheel, I will eventually need to do something about it.

I will grab a set of stock mufflers from a guy 15 minutes from me for $75, and hang onto the ones it came with.

I'm so stoked right now. I'd post some pics, but I'm at work and media sharing sites (i.e. Photobucket/imgur, etc.) are all blocked.

So in the interim, this is what it looks like:

Very nice! Look forward to seeing the pictures!  embeer 

PS Best exhaust IMHO for the Mustangs is the Roush

Yea, what's with manufacturers and the painted wheels half black/half silver look these days? Subaru is probably the worst offender of that.

Congrats on the purchase!

Some guys are putting black decals on their GTI "Austin" wheels to give them that look.  I think it looks bad in my opinion.

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

I didn't originally like the wheels, but they aren't bad. They only really look decent on gray or black cars, and look weird on every other color. At least they are 19" - I won't be shopping wheels for quite some time - the Pirellis on the car are almost brand new.

The only thing that I 'missed out on' with this car was the Brembo brake package - but having driven Brembo to non-Brembo cars back-to-back, I honestly don't think you'd be able to tell the difference on the street.

Not as of right now. Still getting used to a car that will break traction at 1500rpm...  eek

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

arrow-up It's been cleaned, and then Armor-Alled to death. I'll be cleaning that up this weekend - I hate a greasy engine bay.

The car also has a new battery, the old one appears to have leaked. The acid was not cleaned up from it, so this definitely has to be addressed, along with the removal of the haggard and non-essential battery blanket.

Re: Matt's now-completed quest for the perfect 2013-2014 Ford Mustang GT

So, Ford offers a really cool service where you can reproduce the original window sticker with the VIN#. How awesome is that??

My car has the following options:
Rear sensing system/security package(active anti-theft, wheel locks, reverse park assist): $695
3.73:1 LSD rear axle: $395
Tape stripe delete (thank goodness): NO CHARGE
Comfort package (heated seats/mirrors, and the pony lamps on the mirrors): $650
19" Machined aluminum wheels: $995
GT Coupe accessory package 4 (pedestal rear spoiler): $355

$3090 in options, original total MSRP was $38,885.  eek

bentmettle offered to get me more information about the car (build sheet, etc.), so I should know the entire history of the car shortly.
