    Jim has made his decision and has moved to the dark side. :eek: I think I saw him last night around 5:30 driving his new wheels on Baseline. I'll let @gojimjoyce share what he bought.

    @VoodooBoss, thanks for outing me! . Yes, I went to the dark side. 1SS 1LE. [​IMG]

    It has everything that a PP2, plus a bit more, like Recaros. After driving it for the last couple days, I can appreciate the differences in both, good and not-as-good.

    To each his own....we need variety out there to keep things interesting.
    although, I am surprised those pics didn't burst into flames as soon as they were posted ;)
    Congrats on the purchase. Should be a fun car.

    Don’t get me wrong. Still love Mustangs! I really wanted to buy one close enough to the way I wanted without having a bunch of added options that I didn’t want. Then have fun doing it up.

    The reality is that the dealership experiences ruined my joy of buying another one. Multiple dealers involved.

    I hear you.
    4 of my last 6 vehicles were long distance purchases for that very reason.

    What separates a 1 SS from a 2 SS ?

    A bunch of stuff that doesn’t make the car go faster. More luxury stuff, dual temps for a/c, heated and cooled seats, auto wipers, and Bose.

    Congrats, bitchen car! If I wasn't a dyed in the wool Ford guy that would be my choice for sure.

    Maybe, I pass through Baseline and Fiddy around 6:00 everyday. Maybe near 99?

    Congrats, and we do have to thank GM in a small way, because as long as they build machines like this, the Mustang will continue to get performance improvements too. I am a little confused about your comment stating it has more options than a PP2, like Recaros. Recaros are available on a PP2 , and in fact all the ones we have ordered have them.

    Agree the 1SS is the way to go , for sure---- don't need all that extra junk that won't make the car any faster?

    Actually , I take that back as we did order one without Recaros as a bunch of the guys argued they had some big customers and we should have one with the base seat in case the new owner wanted to put in a wide race seat. Not a bad idea, so we have one like that....sorry.
