I have been seeing them around here for months. Glad to see they are making their eay into the lots.
I've driven the 2013 Mustang GT 5.0 L automatic as well as the Focus ST. The Mustang had the manual Recaro seats. I don't know if they weren't height adjustable or they didn't give us enough time to play with them to tweak it correctly, but I found the driving position to be a bit awkward given the seating position being quite low, and the cowl being quite high. Since both cars were locked down with their mykey speed limiters enabled at 80 the Mustang couldn't get away from the ST on the course they set up either. It could be that people were being too timid with the Mustang, but I enjoyed driving the ST more then. Now had they allowed us to drive the 6MT Mustang it might have been different, if it had a power driver seat that could be easily adjusted it might have not been as underwhelming. I was more excited by the 3.7L convertible or coupe I drove last year.
