I'll be the first to say "congrats" on your new Titanium. I'm sure you'll really get to appreciate the handling package on the twisty roads and the extra bells and whistles on the 13. I only wish I had the reverse camera on mine.

Yeah I lost to much on the se but I just had a base se . As for the st there were no incentives to buy one no xplan nothing off price what so ever. My x plan on the titanium was $1756 plus Ford took $2897 off Msrp. Put $1300 down and still had $3000 neg equity in the se but o well

I considered trading in my Ti for an ST a couple months ago but the dealers offer of $16k didn't justify the extra HP for me. Might as well buy a Mustang if I am going to do that.

did the same thing but went from a mid level '12 SE to a fully loaded '13 SE. ALMOST got an ST but I didnt want to get a special car like that stripped down, ST2 and 3 were too much $$ for me right now. A plan - 2895 in additional discounts + a few grand negative equity + MUCH better interest rate = lower payments

Congrats! Who cares if you lost money on the 12 haha thats what money is for, to blow

Idk, I drove the mustang and ST back to back and I would honestly take an ST over a V6 premium. Im a Mustang nut but these days its just so dated feeling inside and the powertrain needs to be worked over, not to mention how much more practical an ST really is.

5.0...different story!
