Coming out of a 2008 Cayman S, actually keeping that and doing some repaints/repairs, however really needed a new reliable car and after renting the Eco Boost for ten days I have totally fallen for the Mustang. I'm picking up a 2019 GT with PP1 tomorrow. Black on black with black wheels.

Anything I should be looking out for? The car had a mere 3mi on it when I test drove it today, it drove fantastically. I suppose the only thing I'd like in it is tighter/stiffer steering response, but I'm happy enough with it and realize it will feel different than the Cayman S.

I also have a feeling it will be a short term (one year) Mustang for me, after which I may go straight up to the Shelby, so I don't want to overthink this.

Will post some pics when I get it, pretty siked to be back in a V8 and am really impressed with what Ford has accomplished after years of driving Porsche (911 S, Cayman S) and many higher performance Audis (RS4, S4).

My 19 ecoboost has it so I sure its a standard option now. I keep mine in sport mode but the wife likes the comfort mode.
