What does that have to do with anything? Stop starting drama like a woman.

Hi Mio!

What's wrong with asking the man a question about his car. His build looks very comprehensive and proper.

Sounds like your response is constructive and serious, so Ill reply with the same courtesy.

5g visibility is decreased vs the mustangs but that doesnt impeded anyone from adapting. Kind of like you would adapt to driving a Ford GT or any performance car.



As far as the HUD, most people would consider that major upgrade, myself included.

As far as interior quality, I will agree that the S550 does have the it there, specialy with the gauges as you mentioned.

Performance wise, straightline it is a wash. Coyote has a minute advantage but once the mods begin, it is anyones game. Both motors reapond very well to mods. Handling, no contest, goes to the 5th gen. You really need to test drive a 1LE car, the hype is real. There is a reason it outperforms the Boss LS and PP s550 gt.

I can tell you from being in both the interior of a 5gen is much superior to even the updated s550.

Well for starters....you have to be smart enough to look through the windshield not at it.

S550 interior is not very great. Between poppas car and phils both being base cars the 5gen was far better. 5gen not cluttered with buttons like a s550 and the touch screen in the 5gen far superior. I don't even think poppa car had a touch screen. Much smaller if it was.

Gauges fine in both. Pedal placement better in 5gen for me.

Absolutely no comparison between them in on road feel. The s550 is better than the s197 which felt like you were over top the roll centers by 3 feet but still not what 5gen is. Laptimes back that up and then some. No argueing that.

I don't mine the more complicated 5br0. Ima n/a guy tho and it just gets outpowered there.

Most of the time I will say that looks are pretty subjective but the S550 interior is definitely better than the 5g.

I don't see it. And gave valid reasons. I also hate buttons.

Not looking through the windshield and bitching about seeing out of a sporty car is the dumbest ******* **** i have ever heard. You belong in a minivan.


On a side note there are lots of cars way way harder to see out of than a 5gen. Newer c-classes, 4dr focus, convertable beatles....probably hard tops to but i wasn't in one of those do i can't say.

I will definitely try to test drive one. The only reason I haven't yet is because the last time I wanted to, the car had just come out and the dealer said I couldn't drive that one (specifically the 1le package) until I had started the sales process. I was like "are you fkn kidding me? How do you expect me to buy a car if I can't drive it first?" And promptly left

All in all my 5g was ok. Even with my aftermarket springs and swaybars and wider wheels and tires it did not handle or feel as good as my 6g. Car just felt big and not as involving. Outward visibility wasn't as good in the front. Just felt like a sedan idk. The 6g feels like a go cart compared to it.
Stock strait line was no comparison and I'm guessing after my next round of bolt ons will beat my h/c 5g in everything except possibly a highway roll but I'll never know. In the end my new car is everything I wanted the 5g to be and I love it. No regrets at all.

Never driven a 5g 1le but I'm sure it's solid. About on par with a standard ss like mine from what I've gathered as far as lap times etc

A little surprised that a 6g with lamo tire stickers managed to win over a more modded 5.0.... lol
That made me LOL

Yeah, you should. 1LE pkg makes all the difference in the handling dept. The dealer didnt let me drive mine till the application had been approved by Ally. When I first drove it, I was not dissapoint. It literally was just as good as all the hype I had researched and read online. A big go kart. Best overal car in 2014 when I bought it.

The 6g (non 1LE) is lighter and nimbler but ultimately the 5G 1LE does its intended job better. 5g 1le is faster around the track than even a magneride suspension 6g ss. We all know how badass the 6g ss is but the 5g 1le is THAT good.

I know alot of guys kinda claims the 5gen wasn't very good do to the first 2 yrs they made them they were a little soft. In 12 with the revamped fe4 suspension they were pretty damn good even with out a 1le package. I have only drove 12 and phils 15 1le.

Funny part is the furd guys whine about 5gen handling when they clearly. ....so clearly had nothing to compete with it across the entire furd line up. Even the softer first 2 yrs of 5gen laid down better lap times than even 5br0 pp of the same years. Pretty hypocritical of them.

Even to this day the only furd that has a shot at beating the 5gen z28 around vir would be the new fğt.

Broginas can't stand that people finally figured out how to drive 5gens, and are running with or beating their flagship coyotes.

1) 2016 Mustang GT vs 2016 Camaro SS both stock - SS wins
2) 2016 Mustang GT vs 2016 Camaro SS both with bolt ons - SS wins
3) 2016 Mustang GT vs 2016 Camaro SS both with similar power adder - SS wins

There is no replacement for displacement.
376.1 cu > 302.1 cu

You're paying what, $4k more on average for a new 2016 SS over a new 2016 GT premium?
