as a former ford mustang cobra owner ,i am pleased to announce the absence of the vehicle in my garage,to add .there are two very happy days in a ford owners life ,the day he buys it and the day he sells it,but i was happier when i sold it then when i bought it,what was i thinking when i bought it ,maybe a flash back from 1972 ,either way its happily gone ,and a new bmw m5 replaces it ,gee i must not be the only one seems alot of ford dealers have way too many gts on their lots that are not moving and ford wonders why they are hurting,maybe they should ask bmw what they are doing ,hey maybe the edsel will come back with a blower on it,and all tose ford owners will have something to droul over

no im not arrogant ,just smart,when you spend x amount of dollars for anything ,you do ,or should i say i do expect some kind of quality in the product,if not you find a product where it is ,not just sit there like a bump on a log and say gee man this is a mustang cobra ,but like life in itself you live and learn and research before you buy ,not after

Yes you are smart and not arrogant. Thanks for that example of a long run on sentence.
Well maybe you are just a little arrogant.

Buyers have to understand what they're getting when they buy a Mustang: amazing bang-for-the-buck performance, but in an antiquated, somewhat low-quality package.
For many of us, that fits the bill perfectly. But I can understand why people wouldn't like that, and would find it a poor trade-off.
Of course a BMW M5 is a better all-around car than a Mustang Cobra...for a price close to a hundred grand it had better be.
But a Mustang Cobra (esp. the last version) offered a truly great performance bargain. Sure, didn't offer much else, but what it did, it did quite well.
Appreciating Mustangs (esp. the high end ones) demands a sort of automotive asceticism, a willingness to tune out certain things and focus heavily on others.
To paraphrase an earlier Edmunds.com review, Mustangs are like that old college buddy that never grew up: frequently juvenile, kinda pointless, but you can't deny the good time you have when he's around.

Or more simply, what other 500 hp car has an MSRP in the 40k range?
For the GT what other 300 hp car has an MSRP between 25k to 30k?
Even the V6 with rear drive and 200hp/245lbft for under 25k is a pretty good performance buy.
I think the "low quality" zing is not very fair. Yes, there are a few glitches but over all I think they have been largely resolved. I find the interior very well screwed together and the exterior even more so.

If you "researched," you probably wouldn't have bought a BMW.
