    yer thats cool, we all have our likes dislikes in models and shapes.
    I think it looks great from the rear 3/4 angle, the rear is nice and wide.

    I completely understand why Ford will keep to two shifts.


    I think that plan would help maintain sales.

    Certainly I'm seeing plenty around, but they do stick out in traffic!
    I have a hunch that by the time all current orders are delivered, we may well be into the
    facelift, possibly more engine upgrades and most likely a 10-speed auto option.

    Regular refreshes that ford Aust could never afford will now be at Ford NA's discretion
    and hopefully timed with interesting special models designed to keep the love coming.

    The FWD Commodore may see a few more RWD tragics jump ship until GM comes to its senses.

    Was at all ford day today at Willowbank, absolutely gobsmacked by how many new mustangs were there. Was more like all mustang day.
    And I didn't see two the same, seemed everyone was customised in some way.

    Gawd I want one lol.

    Current orders haven pretty much been caught up.

    Dealers now have an abundance of stock with more on the way to be stored by Ford themselves for the change over gap between MY17 and MY18 here.

    I think MY18 will make a great car even better, especially with respect to technology, something the current ones were lacking thanks to ours getting decontented.

    That's the thing Dash. I suspect that the MY18 will really date the model it replace and market will be flooded with used stock driving the value down in the short to medium term.
    Of course, you would expect that with any superseded model but the MY18 just has more of everything to make it quite a formidable package.

    One thing the current 2016-17 model has going for it is the looks. It looks more muscular and sculptured than the MY18 from the footage shown and should age really well. In years to come I think it will remain a very desirable Mustang model due to its looks, tuning ability and the abundance of performance and cosmetic add on available. I think if you are intending to hang on your Mustang for while then the availability of the MY17 models, or used 16-17 versions represent a great opportunity. If you are looking to flip your Mustang in the short to medium term you might be better off waiting for MY18.

    Yeh at first i preferred the MY17 look, but like most things the MY18 has grown on me.

    Even new drive away prices have dropped up to 10k from the early days now that demand has dropped.

    Some dealers are advertising 4 cylinders for 46k drive away which is pretty good value for anyone trying to get into a 2 door sports car.

    If i get one it will look like this:

    Why has fords design gone to the point where the looks have to grow on you?

    Other then the gt, what model is really just a damn good looking car?
