Hi I'm about to buy a 2012 GT premium. I looked a a Roush Stage 2 and
fell in love with the car. Wish I could get the Brembro package with
the auto trans from Ford but I can't. Roush Stage 2 gives me what I
want with handling and braking. This is a vanity purchase for me,
since I am about to hit the septegenarian age. I'm going to need one
with the 6 speed auto. Any pros or cons abgout the car ?

I agree -- extra dollars for a suspension upgrade and a cosmetic kit.
But if you like/want the firmed up ride and added visual flash, I say
go for it.
If it were me I'd opt for Roush's Stage 3 (S/C kit) and have the body
'11 GT (Brembos, 6-speed, 3.73s, and unspoiled)
Got the 2011 GT Premium (wow, nine months ago). Got it loaded: Brembo
brake package, 3.55 rear dif, Navigation, backup camera, SYNC (my car
has a 10Gb harddrive!?). Hell, even seat warmers (how did I go this
long without them??). I have no problems with the factory setup...if
the engineers at Ford thought this is how it should be, then this is
how it should be. But that's me.
Pros: Psssst, it a Mustang! If I had a dime for every guy in a Prius
or pickup who looked over longingly at my 5.0 badge...
Cons: Can't lock the gas filler. Just push the door and it opens,
weird. No trunk key, so you have to keep the windows up and locked.
The center console sits too high, my arm is always at an awkward angle
when I shift. Some might say skip shifting (a gate "forces" you from
1-4). Hummm, oh yeah, the back gets dirty fast (air flow causes dirt
to collect quick).
So, as you can see my cons, while serious, are rather trivial.
