Hey guys... after several years of inactivity, I am back to once again tap into an amazing vat of mustang knowledge. Now that I've flattered you all, onto the point... I just graduated college and have been on my job for just over two months now. I get some pretty great discounts with all the American car makers and even some Europeans... Originally, I had planned to save up until next summer, at which point I would have enough money saved to make a big enough down payment to comfortably affoard the payments on an '08 or '09 Vette. But alas, I found I cannot wait that long for a new car (way too anxious), and I don't feel like stretching my budget at this point for a car. The Mustang, however, would fit VERY nicely into my planned budget. Besides, I live in the DC metro area, so I'd like to discover I hate driving manual in the traffic when I buy a $30,000 car rather than a $50,000 car. I have two questions with the X-Plan pricing I get through my employer. Firstly, I LOVE the Shelby GT. I know the GT500 is not eligible, but I do not see anything about the regular Shelby GT. Anyone know if it is eligible/what the x-plan price is? Secondly, is there negotiation beyond the x-plan pricing? My girlfriend just bought a G35 coupe a couple months ago, and was part of a Vehicle Purchasing Program. I was able to get the dealer to drop another $500 beyond the VPP price, and I do not consider myself an expert negotiatior. Thanks for your help everyone!
