Just released that the painted stripes will be a $10,000 option. $1,000 vinyl stripes still available. Does the extra $9k for the painted stripes make sense? Could be above 10% of the MSRP of the car, just for stripes. Or do you guys think thats spot on for the audience and vehicle?

GT stripes are $15K extra so ten sounds like a bargain!

Your 1st post, welcome.

Im a no stripe person, so makes things much easier. I dont question the amount of additional effort for a painted stripe. However, I do not think this is in keeping with the audience of the vehicle. We are talking to the Mustang crowd, and already this car is pushing unto uncharted territory for a mustang (before the painted stripe "check box"). Is is now easy to "build" a 6 figure mustang. I anticipate the take rate on this might be low.

As in the history of the higher performance Mustangs, a high percentage of early adopters will pay over sticker.

I saw a corner balance (from Vorshlag?) Of a base 2016 Mustang GT (small brakes) that weighed over 3,800lbs.
