    If thats the recipe you're looking for, I'll take a CTS-V then for the extra few grand.

    Thats because retards let their valve cover gaskets leak to the point where there was oil dripping on the exhaust manifold. Hardly GM's fault really. Toyotas recall is 100% their fault, and they weren't even going to do anything about it until the government got involved.

    Dont kid yourself, fully loaded cts-vs are priced around 65-70k, you can get a loaded is-f right now for 53k and some places are offering invoice on new 07s and 08s which is 48k. I would take a cts-v over the is-f anyday but i would also take a is-f over a 2011 stang.

    Ehh. Well I suppose if money wasn't the object most would take the more expensive vehicle.

    However, if it was your hard earned cash, and you had $60K saved up, which would you take??

    A 2011 Mustang GT with the new 5.0 412HP V8 for $32K, or a 2011 IS-F for $55K?? That choice would be obvious for me.

    They are two different car's with two different target markets.I doubt a guy looking at a IS-F would be thinking about a Mustang,anymore then a guy looking at a Mustang would checking out a IS-F.

    They are decent, mid to high 12s at around 109-112mph would be a good run in a is-f. But everyone says they handle great and have awesome brakes aswell.
