My thoughts......a Roush Stage 3 Vert is the most over priced car in the world thanks to the GT-500. Ford destroyed these after-market cars when the launched the GT-500. Folks are starting to buy these closer to closer to sticker every day, which makes paying $57k for a Roush insane.
You sir, should write a letter to Ford thanking them for the GT-500.
So, I think $43k or so is a great deal.....probably priced what these are now worth. Think about it.....how much more would you have paid for a GT-500 Vert? I would say if you stack the two cars side by side, the GT-500 is definately worth $5 - 7k more which again, makes your car priced fairly.
Another way to look at it is is that you car was priced about $15k more then a Stock GT. Add the cost of a vert, a blower, and all the other nice Roush stuff, and $15k more is really about right if you ask me too.
BTW, I really like these cars.....I just think Roush thinks they are worth too much.
Also, I know a guy who paid $41k for a Stage 1 vert (2004) when it was brand new. Compared to that guy, you stole this one.

I can't say that I disagree that 57k is too steep for a Stage 3. No way I would have bought it at that price. No question the gt500 has more hp and can be tweaked to handle 500 + rwhp. This car, however, will eat up the gt500 in a road course. Much better suspension and not much slower than the stock gt 500. I can't understand why they have the 3.30's rear in the 500 with a six speed? That car needs the 3.73 like the bullitt.
Almost bought a 07 Shelby 500 with 80 miles for 43,900 but liked the uniquness of the stage 3 vert. Both great cars with pros and cons. Seems as though as time passes you will be able to buy the 500s at sticker or even less with the economy slowing down.
I watch them on ebay from time to time. They aren't giving them away but most of the auctions go with no sale.

Were you talking about OTD price?

The hesitation you felt is due to the electronic throttle which is equipped in both stick and automatic. Ford has a new "Adaptive Driving" system where it reads the drivers driving habits to better control fuel economy. This system can be easily calibrated by yourself if you are not pleased with its performance. Contributing to the problem is the variable valve timing the mustang has. It is VERY IMPORTANT you use the correct oil weight and viscosity or it will protest with poor throttle response. I found this out the hard way and it was verified by a Ford mechanic. The V8 requires 5W20 and had used 5W30 1 time and man, never again..stick with 5W20.

Is the $22,548 before or after any rebate?
Did you purchase this vehicle? At this price?
If so, where in CA?
#997 of 1125 2008 Ford Mustang, Bullitt Edition
Mar 29, 2008 (3:10 pm)
Anyone have any luck with this car? The MSRP is $32,720, Invoice is $30,388. Ford has a $1500 rebate. My dealer has offered $28,118 + tax,tag,title,etc.
Anyone think I can do any better. Initially they said $34k because there was a premium on it as only 7000 were being made. Now, I think they are hurting to sell them, because of gas prices.

Please have your dealer double , no, triple check if the $1,500 incentive is available on the 2008 Bullitt. My dealer AND Ford told me the Bullitt was excluded from the $1,500 incentive and low interest financing. I pushed them very hard on that issue, but was told that it was fact. BTW, your price is well below any that I have heard of on this vehicle. Thanks and please post your reply ASAP.

Alright, so what I had received before, was an online quote. I talked to the internet sales manager and your correct. There are no rebates available on the Bullitt. The internet quote system was wrong. The price will be $30,228 + 599 doc fee + 22 tag fee + 7% tax = $33,008 total. That is for a GT Premium, Bullit package, HID headlights, ambient lighting, alarm, sirius, and wheel locks.
Thats a little much, especially when I could probably get a GT Premium, California Special for significantly less. The sales manager said he could do the GT Prem with CS package for $23,168 after all rebates and incentives. With tax, tag, title. etc it would be $25,454. I find myself wondering if the Bullitt is worth $8k more.
