    I had a nice response typed out then found out I can only enter 1000 characters here. D'oh!

    I'd have to give you a little history on the Mustang first... Stupid amounts of power? Not really, but I have done a lot of modding to it. It is an '07 V6 with an MP-90 (roots) blower on it. It is a fun car as well, but in a totally different way than the FR-S. Starting with the '05, this generation of Mustang stands head and shoulders above all previous generations as far as handling/braking/fun factor go. Compared to the FR-S though, it still feels like a pig.

    Let me put it this way... I brought the FR-S home on June 28th with the intention of it being a daily driver, and the Mustang staying as the weekend/summer car. The FR-S has been such a hoot to drive, I don't think I've put more than 300 miles on the Mustang all summer. You'll have a LOT more fun at Mosport with the FR-S. If someone offered me a choice between a new FR-S and a V6 Mustang... Hands down, it would be the FR-S.

    Hey Roddy!

    I was looking to get an FR-S but I'm honestly stuck between that and the new V6 Stang. They're both approx. the same price and two totally different cars. I read one of your posts that mentioned how you have the Mustang for stupid amounts of power. While I don't know what kind of Mustang you drive, I was curious as to your opinion of both cars. Leaving power out of it of course.

    The car that I buy will be come a daily driver and I do go to Mosport quite often. I figure the FR-S is going to be just beautiful to drive while the Mustang will make things challenging, but fun in the corners. Any advice or insight you can give me is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
