If it was an auto I'd probably go up and buy it.
But they aren't cheap. An SS is thousands more than a GT. They are way overpriced to begin with, which is why the sales numbers suck and they have to mark them way down like that to sell any. They can't even outpace Challenger sales anymore. You see the markdown and think you are getting a deal. They certainly have a better car than they did, but I think the pricing is killing the volume. I mean seriously, $47,320 for that car? That's GT350 territory. And ok, it's now a leftover 2016 so it is marked down to where the price is similar to what MSRP for a GT was to begin with. Well I can still buy a leftover 2016 GT for nearly $10k less. Is that Camaro worth 40% more of your dollars than this GT?

^+1 however the Camaro he listed is a 2ss...Loaded car and the Mustang you listed is a base model if I'm not mistaken (I haven't followed the 15+ that much). Good price on them both. Can't believe a 16 GT is listed that low. That's a steal.

That is low,but meh. The s550s honestly don't do it for me. Heavy, and they're not as quick as the 11-14s.

And yeah that's a 2SS with magnetic ride and such. The camaros are overpriced msrp wise, but I think they're a better car than the S550s.

I'm not crazy about the S550 either, but over time I have noticed them performing better and better. A few 10 second NA ones now. I guess I wouldn't have thought the magnetic ride stuff would matter to you considering how you put things like tubular kmembers on your Mustangs.

Lol , no that's not what I meant. I was saying it had MRC, adding to the msrp.

If I were to get one, I'd try to avoid the MRC.

But then I think about it and think is it worth it? Another car. Idk. We'll see.

I love the new camaro's. I drive them in any configuration. Much better looking than the stangs in my opinion. I'd probably keep it NA and make it sound nasty with the usual LS mods.

I have to agree. They look so much better than the S550. Lots more aggressive and still looks Americanized.

I agree. I'd like to just have an exhaust on it and do some visual stuff.

It was probably a good thing I had the blower on my mustang. Got it out of my system lol. Now I'd rather just have something with all the fancy new technology, something quick and comfortable to cruise around in.

Yeah dude, I'd be kind of fucking pissed. I'm sure it's not the easiest of installs. But it's been at least 2 months, right? If I remember I saw a picture of it on a lift? It can't be that hard or time consuming.

Wasn't on a lift. Basically it doesn't seem like he wanted to work on it anyways but took it in anyways. Kinda put mine on the backburner now and his dad has been slowly working on it while he messes with his car instead from what I gathered. I'm pissed that I could've taken it to a shop and it be done by now but I'm not going to have hard feelings with him. They have jobs and are busy. Just sucks knowing I coulda went elsewhere and it been done in a few weeks. It's been there since the end of June. No idea how much longer it will take. Haven't had an update. Went to see it Saturday and he wasn't there so I dropped my wheels/tires off. Truck gets tint this weekend, gonna stop by after and see it and see how much longer it really will be.

Sucks too cuz everyone seems to be done racing now cuz of the cold weather. So after Christmas, if I still have it, it's prolly goin to another shop for some more goodies.

My kit has pretty well went on smooth though with no issues really. Only minor setback we had, which I could have left, was that the passenger turbo was touching some wires. Ordered another spacer and it fit perfect. Everything else has went smooth. Pretty funny considering all the shit talk on On3.

Oh and they forgot my manifold bolts

I thought about it. But why pay him, take it to a shop (most shops hate when people bring shit in that is half done), then pay the shop? It'd be pointless. I don't have the room to do it. It's harvest right now, barns are full with tractor stuff and my grandparents are back so their vehicles are where my car was. Car would still be there had it of been done.

Idk man, just principle at this point. I'm not trying to get you aggravated or pissed off or anything. But to me it seems like they're walking all over you. If you don't mind me asking, what did you guys agree on price wise for the install?

Ouch, if it took longer than 2 weeks I'd be getting on edge. But I wouldn't drop it off unless they were ready to make it their focus.
