My New Beast :)

Well, I finally got back to Saint Louis this past Monday and have been driving my new 2013 Mustang GT500 ever since. I am absolutely in love with the vehicle from the exterior design to the interior refinement, and especially the exhaust note of the vehicle. I haven't driven a manual transmission vehicle in a long time, so it has taken some time getting used to, especially with first gear. Everything besides first gear is relatively simple.

My initial assessment of daily drivability is that she is going to be a lot of work. She has a lot and I mean a lot of power and always wants to go, so it will be tough not always taking advantage of that. It has been an absolute blast and I enjoy every moment of it. Gas mileage has been alright, I have done 90% city driving so that doesn't help but I am thinking city I am around 15 and highway is estimated 23.

No sooner than when I got home was I at a local tint shop getting 18% all around and 45% on the windshield. I think it really completed the look and as of right now, that's all I plan on doing. But we all know how long this lasted with my jeep . Here are some night pictures of the tint, I will get better day pictures tomorrow, enjoy!

Thanks Tim,

I will be bringing it to Chicago either next weekend or the weekend after. Will definitely take it to a Kilt night or two.

Thanks Johnny, I think it really completes the look. She is an absolute blast, and everyone stops me to ask about it. Gets more attention that my jeep :O
