Hi, crb03cobra! You might also want to ask the folks in the Transmission Traumas discussion to see if they have any answers for you.
#158 of 185 Dreaming About the Cobra
Nov 05, 2005 (9:08 pm)
Have had my GT Premium coupe for only about 2 months and am already seriously thinking about getting the Cobra -- got pictures of it on my desktop. Will be calling dealers Mon. From what I've heard so far, they're due out sometime next year. Anybody know when and how to get one? I've heard the price will be less than $40k, somewhere around $36-39k? Is that right?

To answer my own question: Called a dealer today and talked to the chief honcho. He said I could leave a refundable deposit, get on the list, and would get a Cobra when they came into production sometime around summer/fall '06.

I have a '99 Cobra and tried fitting '04 SVT 9" rims/tires (275/40/17 tires) but they stuck out beyond the fenders on the front. I have seen this same set of rims/tires on a base mustang and they fit fine. Was there a different front rotor/hub used on the '99 Cobra than in the '03-'04 Cobra models? What is the widest rim/tire combo that will fit the front of the '99 Cobra?

Have you driven a Mustang before? I have had many Mustangs over the years and the clutch is always very heavy and the tranny is always picky. Most buy an aftermarket shifter. It is a car that you will feel the road and every bump and vibration will take some getting use to. I like the hard suspension and zero body roll. It is more of a race car than it is a smooth driving machine. If you want quiet you better stick with the BMW.

2003 mustang cobra SVT
25k miles have had minor gear slop type noise since new and its progressivly worsened and I am about to take it in for service. Have called 1-800-ford SVT and asked about this and they say the clank sound is more pronounced due to the IRS rear and that it should not pose a problem. But a car that at least lists for about 40K (conv.) should really not have this sound. Other wise this car is and has been amazingly reliable. And the factory 400 HP is amazing specially in the cooler winter weather. Glad I purhased the extend warranty plan though.
