You might check on the special programs again now that the programs ending March 31st are over, and new programs have started 4/1.
I did a build and price on the Ford Web site tonight on a Mustang with Bullitt package and see that the special programs now appear in the pricing summary. (previously they did not show up when I chose the Bullitt package).
I'd be interested to see what others are paying for the Mustang Bullitt, too. It looks like there is still inventory, so they have not sold out at this time.

I say buy a CS and throw on a CAI and a tuner flash and save the dough. Roughly the same performance or better. Put the difference in a CD or a bond. Enjoy!

Don't give up an this awesome vehicle. Mine is resting in the garage ,ready for the next romp.
The deeper I dug into this vehicle , the more I discovered its uniqueness and special components. You just can't build the equivalent car for the $3,100 Bullitt option cost over a GT premium. The list of special , high performance components far exceeds that of the Shelby GT. From that perspective, its a better deal. BTW, I don't consider tape stripes , ground effects, and hood scoops under that heading. One drive in this car will spin your head... it feels far stronger than 315 HP and with 1/4 mile times ranging from 13:30s to 13.70 ,it has to be. I owned and drove muscle cars in the late 60s and early 70s and this car would spank many of them- excluding , of course , the ultra high horsepower examples which were the exception then and not the rule ... Something most people who didn't live back then don't know.

What did you pay for it, if you don't mind me asking?

I was offered $30,228 + $599 doc + $22 tag fee 7% tax = $33,008 OTD
That is for an 08 GT Premium, Bullitt Package, with HID headlights, ambient lighting, alarm, and wheel locks.
MSRP $32,70, Invoice $30,388, Price Offered $30,228
It seems like a great deal, but I am wondering if I hold out, will it get a little sweeter?
I also just saw on ford's website, that the Bullitt is eligible for a $1500 reabte, and $1000 bonus cash. I wonder if that was already factored into my price? I will have to call and see.

GT CS Vert. Sticker is 37,600 car has 2500 miles on it and was a demo. Salesman seems like a nice guy and says that he could take 32,6 for the car. I said he seems kind of high considering this is a leftover 07 demo. he said they only have 1600 in it which to me means 31K. I offered him 31K and he said no. He would go to 32K. I am tempted because the deal currently includes 0.0% for 72 months. However it is not the color I wanted.
Your thoughts please.

As a year old (and, in effect, used) car, 32 is 2 to 3 grand more than what's it's worth. You should be able to buy a new '08 for about the same money.
Don't understand your reference to "...he said they only have 1600 in it...."
Is Ford providing the financing? Or is it a dealer promo?
Last point: they only offered the CS in 4 colors and if it's not what you want, you'll likely kick yourself later.

I looked at used 07 with 7k on it and it sold for 29,9 and was red. The Ford financing would have been 4.9%
This one is white and has never been titled so has full warranty and will be sold as new. The 0.0% for 72 months is also Ford financing.
When he said they would only have 1600 in it, I took that to mean that they would make 1600 if he sold me the car at 32,6 which was what he told me he could sell me the car for originally.
With the difference in financing the used one would have cost $15 more a month, had 5000 more miles on it and already had more than a year off the warranty. Regardless the red one sold at the asking price price of 29,9. Albeit, not to me! The deals available to me are on leftover 07's since they can be financed at 0.0%

You can't beat that financing, especially if it's NOT in lieu of rebate money. Bought my '06 GT 'vert that way in late summer of '06.
However, be prepared to take a pretty big depreciation hit quite soon. Mine's got less than 2000 miles on it now and is worth 23 (maybe 24) of it's original 35K sticker.
