First I was in the Army and couldn't afford one, Then I got married and it "wasn't practical". But my wife came to her senses and we traded in the SUV and NOW I have a brand new white 2003 GT w/ 5 speed, polished cobra wheel upgrade and Mach 1000 from the factory for $22k. K&N was bought and put in and I've finally learn to do a proper burnout with nice 30ft+/- stripes. Life is Good. Thank you, GOD.

Now quick question ladies and gents. Do the seats not recline all the way or am I just not finding the right button/knob- and what should I do next?

Congrats! :nice: Should have bought mine :nonono: But anyways, you will love it! The seats do not recline all the way, but check out http://www.mustangworld.com/ourpics/fcar/recline.htm. That is a very simple way to make them into a nice alternative to the couch :nice: Time for a cat-back exhaust, check out ebay for catback systems and find a good deal! :flag: Let the moding begin :spot:

Why would you want the seats to go all the way back? Unless you're lookin' for a little road

interestingly enough i found myself having to sleep in my car this past saturday night, and it sucked when i found out that the seats did not fully recline. :shrug:

I've never seen a Vette driving fast...well, I take that back, there is one black one around here, loud as hell, scraping-the-ground low, and he's not afraid to stomp on it...but mostly, I see Vettes just creeping along. Kinda like the're thumbing their noses at the rest of us. I wonder if they are afraid to jump on it or they can't drive for crap or both?

Dream car, for now? Heck, I've got two sitting in the garage. I remember when we first got them, I kept calling my wife, "Honey, come here quick, look at this"...and she meet me at the garage door, and I say, "Look, we've got two Mustangs in our garage!" Life is good!

Next dream car? Oh, maybe a 00 Cobra R or Boss 351 V-10.

Congratulations Caballo - I know the feeling. And welcome to StangNet!

Not the case. :rlaugh: My wife likes to sleep on road trips. It would be easier for her if her seat reclined. :nice:
riiiiight!!! :rolleyes: I bought my 96 GT a month ago and the first thing i did was figure out how to recline the seats all the way. To me it was the most critical mod...after all, Mustangs dont have a big enough back seat :p

I need my seat reclined a little more than stock to drive comfortably. I am tall so reclining the seat more gives me better headroom.

First mods to the stang were seat mod (very easy to do) and shutting off the seatbelt warning chime
