Tell me why I a non-american should not buy a used 2016 Ford Mustang GT V8?
>>
you shouldnt.
you shouldnt even buy one as an american.
>>
>>20817643
why?
>>
>>20817645
maintenance will fuck you up.
amerilards make fun of german cars because of their expensive maintenance costs but thats only because they dont have fucking mechanics specialized in german cars.
you will run into the same shit with your american car.
>>
>>20817651
what if i do everything myself?
>>
>>20817640
Not much other choices in Australia at the price point.

Alternatives are M3 E92, 370z with fully sikk mawds, RC350, and Falcon/Commodores with big boy engines.
>>
>>20817656
you cant afford the card if you cant afford the maintenance/repair costs.
also you wont be able to do everything by yourself, dont fool yourself.
>>

>oil changes are hard
>>
>>20817664
yeah because thats all you have to do...
are you retarded?
>>
>>20817665
You're right I forgot about the air filter
>>
>>20817651
Mustangs aren't so rare in Australia (which I assume OP lives there given the image)

He shouldn't have an issue finding a mechanic asking other Mustang owners
>>
>>20817656
Unless you get Mustang given by parents and youre NEET, you wont be able to fix everything by yourself. Its not only about maintenance costs, its time consuming too. Anyway, youre buying relatively new expensive sports car with complicated V8 and that is a rare sight outside of US. Good luck.
>>
>>20817691
They really aren’t that rare in Australia. Pretty sure it’s Ford’s best selling car after the Ranger.

Before this chassis started getting sold here we had very few though
>>
>>20817698
Yeah the Mustangs just arrived to Australia in 2015 and just 2 months ago the Camaros came and their selling for $80k though soon will drop
>>
>>20817698
Is OP based in AUS? What if hes from Yurop?
>>
>>20817708
I'm from AUS, If I was European then I would not be able to afford V8 gas prices
>>
>>20817706
Yeah the Chevs need to get converted to RHD. Similar to what RAM is doing with their “trucks”.

I think it’s the same company doing both. Not entirely sure about that but apparently the Camaro conversion is very good
>>
>>20817816
HSV is doing the Camaros. They call it "remanufactured" to distinguish the difference between shitty conversion and what they do, at least according to their marketing lines.

Only automatics at the start but manuals should have rolled out for now I think
>>
>>20817670
kek
>>
If you’re in Australia you’ll be fine, the coyote engine is reliable and the mustang GT is a fun car. Don’t see why you shouldn’t, try to get one with magneride suspension though
>>
Get a 4cyl and Barra swap it, the only way yank shit is good
>>
>non-american

genuinely should not be allowed to post here.

because you can buy a godzirra gtr
but tbaych I'd probably buy a mustang or camaro if I lived in australia, I just dont like how unnecessarily agressive they look
>>
>>20820737
thats why you make it burn oil so you only have to add a little bit every now and then instead of all at once
>>
buy an M2 Competition instead
>>

i mean what did you expect

>I can't count to two jugs of oil
>>
>>20817640
You are not going to die just yet, probably.
>>
>>20822671
now count how much money.
>>
>expensive
Lol it's a fucking modern mustang with one of the most basic v8s
He can easily get it serviced at any ford dealer anywhere and they're everywhere

It's not like OP is buying a hemi dodge challenger or something which doesn't even have dealers here
>>
>>20822866
Poorfag
>>
>>20820705
What was he even thinking
>>
>>20822866
Holy shit insane poorfag
>I can't afford $60 in oil every few months
>>
>>20823358
More like once a year
>>
>>20822866
>complaining about $60 in oil twice a year in a car with a v8 that gets typical v8 fuel economy

Nuff said
>>
>>20823378
>>20823358
>>20823350
The Mustang is for poorfags, yes.

>>20817640
Get it OP.
>>
>>20823391
yet it still btfo's your shitbox lmao
>>
>>20823391
For people who want to go fast on a budget that dont care about badges
>>
>>20823406
Yes, it is for poor people too insecure to be "beat by" Hyundais and Civics at stoplights.

kys

>>20823417
You seem upset, show me on the doll where the mustang touched you
>>
>>20823430

His car was hungry for meat, and the best meat is freshly culled from cars and coffee rubber neckers.

How is your road tax/insurance costs?
Do you mind only getting 18-24MPG?
Can you actually drive/park it on the roads where you live/work?
Can you purchase consumables for a reasonable price?(tires/brake pads)
>>
>>20817640
You shouldn't.
>>
>>20823441
>too poor to even own a mustang
>larping about how others are too poor to own a mustang
What is this phenomenon? Its like someone is insulting America when they say anything bad about the Mustang. Is America even great again yet?
>>
>>20823503
You don't know what a focus rs is?
>>
>>20823526
Is it the factory rice version of the basic bitch ford focus that was recently completely killed off in its home market of America due to poor sales?

We have TONS of shops that specialize in ONLY german cars. Are you a fucking retard? America is the land of specialized auto shops where they work on one or two things and that's it.

My modified 300zx turbo took 12 quarts in a race pan, so I would never have to worry.
