    Is anyone planning on getting an 05? Why or Why not?

    I'm not. I'm broke.

    dont have the cash, hate the rims and tails lights, and will wait till the 06 or 07 so they work out the bugs and maybe change a couple of things with the all the crap they will hear from the public. Thats just my 2 cents worth though. :thumbup:

    Possibly. Either a 05 or 06 GT. I'm gonna get a black one. And after seeing Hmong's chop, I'll put black bullitts on it and try to see if anyone makes them bigger than 18", becuase 20" seems to be a good size on the SN-197 platform.
    Black on black w/ black rims. And yes, those damn fogs will be relocated. [​IMG]

    I actually like the rims. I'm hoping that a lot of people feel like you do so that i can get a set for cheap. :thumbup:

    i am not a big fan yet. I didn't like the 99 when it came out either though so i am sure it will grow on me.

    If I can talk my parents into getting an 05 GT, it could be in 2006 when the van and the mustang are paid off. Until then, I'm content on driving my v6.

    BF Goodrich has one of their ads in the latest maxim this month with a Blue 05 GT on twankies - and I must say that it looks badass. I think they did well.

    They will only look good on huge rims. At least 19".

    No. They were classy rims. Nothing thuggin'. I had no idea they were that big until I read the fine print in the ad. Steve is right... these things need REALLY big wheels to look "right".

    I don't think it is a good idea to buy a car in the first year of a new body style with a new engine. All the bugs have not been worked out and these cars will have more recalls than most, plus I think they are ugly.
