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 1138 2008 Ford Mustang, Bullitt Edition
Mar 29, 2008 (2:10 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.

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.
