NEW Owner 2012 Gt500...

Recommended Posts

Well I traded my 08 in on a silver 2012. Turns out it has the Performance package..the dealer didn't know what I was talking about till later.

 

Bittersweet to see my 08 go but looking forward to new fun in my new one.

 

Paid $37400. It has 2900 miles..still breaking it in!

 

Again, rear wheel spin a concern with me..seems crazy to have to replace (practically) new rear tires but the squirrely rear end has me scared. :fear:

 

Defiantly more sedate looking then my White w/ blue striped 08. But that's ok really don't need to draw attention at my age...

 

May put flat black thin stripes on it?

You got a great deal. What type of tires are on the back?

 

Michelin Pilot Super Sports is where its at...1st gear will spin if you go WOT, but controllable if you feather the throttle. Above 65 degrees 2nd gear will hook up every time...no spin.

Also has the glass roof option..not sure how I feel about that.. :shrug:

Looking good, nice low mileage, seems like a pretty good deal. I have the glass roof on my 2012, wasn't sure about it at first but like it now.

Congrats on the upgrade, good luck with the new ride.

The factory supplied tires are pretty much junk, except on 90* days ! I have seen threads by people who liked them for track use. ( SVTP )

There are several threads on the site about tires, many options based on your needs & use.

The glass roof is the option most people who ordered their car, wish they had ordered......( both of mine have it )

I wish I had a glass roof. If you decide to buy an aluminum roof I'll happily buy your glass roof. They weren't offered on the 2010 MY :'(

That's a great buy! Congratulations!

I have both the Track Pack and Glass Roof option on mine too.

The roof is awesome once you have a layer of tint put on...

The factory tint just doesn't knock down the heat from direct sun.

Once you make that change you'll be set!

 

Also, if your getting wheel hop, I would highly recommend replacing the upper control

arm on the Diff with a Roush unit. All my wheel hop is gone.

 

Good luck, and Enjoy!!!
