I've had my heart set on a 2011 with the 5.0 for a good three years and I test drove the 2013 model in April. Then I bought the 335 and never looked back.
everything about the stang was unrefined and I felt like I was driving a truck.
The dealbreaker was the interior. Oh the interior...
bottom line, to me the 335i package as a whole and how it makes me feel is more important than any single trait the mustang may have. And with the tune, I can't ask for any more performance in my daily driver.
What was the slogan? Ford. Drive one? didn't work for me.
