I need a shove

I am close to pulling the trigger on a Tangerine Scream ST (ST3 package). But I also see a low mileage 2012 Mustang GT premium for a great price.

I've asked the Mustang forums so now I ask you. Which one and why?

not a push so much, but check insurance premiums, too. car payment may be the same, but monthly ins premiums may be different.

DD or Toy?
DD, I'd take ST. MPG, easier to park, full warranty.
Toy, I'd take 'Stang in a heatbeat. 5.0, enough said.

Good luck, but will be fun. Jealous I'm not in your shoes on this one.

I'd take the ST. Brand new, more unique, more practical.

And this is coming from a massive Mustang fan, too.

I would take the Mustang for sure unless fuel mileage was a huge concern, then the ST would be the choice. I'm thinking about getting rid of my 2011 Focus for the new 2013 ST, but the Mustang is only a few grand extra along with 168hp.

I sold my Mustang when I bought my titanium. I enjoy having the option of having more passengers as the mustang is nearly impossible to have more than one, easier cargo access, much easier to drive and park, getting well over 30mpg, however my insurance prem stayed the same. I would go for the ST.

i gave up my modded 03 cobra for my ST. i was forced into commuting to work recently and the ST was a much more practical choice....just depends on what makes sense for you...
