I got my pricing quote today from my dealer, got an acceptable number for my trade in, and now just need to figure out exactly what I want. Originally, I was going to go with a 401A package, 3.73 gears, security package, and the Brembo package. This was after having owned an '06 GT and thinking that the '11 was comparable in interior quality, and that I'd just want something nice, but very performance oriented. But then today I talked to my dealer friend, and got some more info as well as sat in a couple '11s and started to change my thinking. The Brembo brakes would be nice, but in reality, this car is going to spend its life at 70 or so MPH eating up miles on my 40 mile commute to work. If it sees any track time, it'll be on a drag strip a few times and that's about it. The downfall of the Brembo package (for me) is the lack of a spare tire. Part of my commute is crossing the longest bridge in the world, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, and I've seen more than one person shred a tire because they got a flat and had to drive to a crossover (between 3-4 miles) before they could change it. Having a shredded tire and a tire inflation kit still means I'm calling a wrecker to get me back to one side of the lake or another to get my vehicle mobile. Also, I don't love the wheels that come with the package. "Kinda like" them is a better way to describe it. For those who have '11s, is the Brembo package really worth it? Or could I do better putting that $1400 into other options to make the car a bit more plush and see more value for my money (like the comfort package, HIDs, or even the GT/CS package)?
