    The 13 Track Package also comes with the BOSS radiator, trans cooler, engine oil cooler, TORSEN diff, and 3.73. Price all that stuff at the FRPP and see if it's more than the Track package pricetag. That was a big selling point for me. Also you can get the cloth or leather Recaros on the GT and not just the BOSS or GT500. When I went in and told the dealership what I wanted they tried to tell me I couldn't get the seats if I didn't get one of those two until I showed them the car I wanted in another city and they looked up the VIN. Score for an educated consumer.

    Yep, the seats are a stand-alone option. That's what is on mine--I just have the Brembos, Recaros, and 3.73 (kind of a mini-track pack).

    I have had both. the 13 gets far more thumbs up. The sales are also proving it. As for the info screen. I love it. tons of great info. if you say you dont like it you dont have it or wish you had it. The track apps are worth it. Do your mods and compare zero to 60 and see if it works.

    I got the 2012 GT Premium, love it. I really don't like look of the front and rear of the '13. Plus '13 doesn't come with a spare tire which bothered me, they just give you a kit to fix the tire and pump it up.

    I have a 2012 with cloth interior. My first car was a 2004 v6 conv. with leather interior. Leather is a lot easier to clean. Cloth stays cool though. I live in MS, so I love my cloth so in the summer I am not sticking to the seats. Both options look good, and both options have the potential to look bad if not taken care of. I prefer cloth though. O and I think both 2012 and 2013 look good. I think the 2012 is more of a sleeker looking car

    I know quite a bit of time has passed since you wrote this. Do you mind sharing the dealership? I am looking to buy a 14 bare bones 5.0 6-speed and am willing to travel to get a good deal. So far, I have gotten a quote for a listing of 24,400 from koons ford but after their 900 freight fee and taxes out the door is 28k. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
