Yea the new v6 stangs are leaps and bounds better than the older v6's. For starters a nearly stock focus can't beat the new v6 in a drag but can beat an older mustang v6 from the last generations. Also is it a stick?

I refuse to own an automatic, so yes.

Ever since I was a kid, the Mustang has been my dream car. When I bought my Focus it was a tight race between whether or not I wanted the ridiculously low-priced car, or the car of my dreams. A year and a half ago when I bought my Focus I really couldn't say no to the price, but after I saw the 2013 and the improvements they've made over the previous model years, I could no longer resist the Mustang! The tipping point was when I took a few for test drives.

So the trade is occurring simply because I don't feel like paying sales tax, excise tax, registration, and inspection fees for two cars.

Only with the reverse sensing/anti-theft package and the V6 performance package (strut tower brace/brakes/suspension/SVT sway bars/19" wheels/summer only tires/3.31 rear axle).

I was going back and forth on whether or not to get the tech package, but decided it wasn't worth the expense to me. It'd be cool to have Sync, LED fogs, etc, but I can add fogs and a sound system later on.
