Considering an 0'5 Mustang, but...

I had some questions i was wondering if you guys could answer for me.

I tried to look through a lot of recent posts, but couldn't really find
many answers, so if any of these are repeats, don't hesitate to let me
know...i can do further research.

I live in Chicago so i get snow here. Any idea if this car handles
poorly in snow?

Anyone know the approximate price difference between a V6 and a V8?
How about performance, is there a HUGE difference, or should i only
consider a V8 if i want to go drag racing?

I will be able to get the "Friends & neighbors" discount, any idea
approximately how much one of these would cost with that? I mean i saw
"Base Price" in Consumer Reports said $19k, but everything i've read on
here makes it seem like $25k is more standard. So with a discount off
of one of those prices, anyone know how much?

Being in the city, would it be a bad idea to get a stick shift?

Do you guys know if it would even be possible to get 0% APR financing
from anywhere? I mean have you seen dealers that have done this, or
have you most dealers at 4% or something?

Can anyone attest to the reliability? Have you owned one for a few
months, any problems, etc.?

Any information is appreciated, thanks guys!

It has traction control, and a stick is a lot
easier in the snow than an auto. As long as you're a
good driver and have good tires, it shouldn't be a problem.

There's not a whole lot of differance in power
levels, surprisingly enough. But take a close look at
what you get with the V* - things like 4 wheel ABS,
sway bars, etc. The GT is a much better car, IMO.

It will vary greatly from dealer to dealer.
Depends on how hot the market is.

Not to me. Stick is the only way to go.

The 0% financing deals are disappearing fast.

If youre buying on the X plan (friends/family/neighbors), you wont be
getting a GT for either the 05 or 06 production years.

Ford sent that memo out to dealers a while ago.

Re: Considering an 0'5 Mustang, but...

I've had three friends buy V6 Mustangs in the past five years and every one
of them wished they had bought a V8.
Not only is the power difference noticable (please don't just compare
horsepower numbers; also compare torque), but also the handling and all the
other extras you get stock with a GT.
Especially if you are mentioning "drag racing" you need to get a GT or wait
for the Cobra.
If you bought a V6 and tried to soup it up, you would spend much more money
in the end (price of car initially plus price of add-ons) to get *any*
horsepower/torque numbers than if you started out with a GT.

a 90 hp difference isn't much?

For most drivers, especially city drivers, it
isn't. They only get to use 1/2 the power they have,
so a little less won't matter.
Now, if you're racing in an open class, 3 hp is a
lot. Drag racing in brackets won't matter, either. In
that case, a V6/AOD would be an excellent drivetrain.
