    Idiots at Sears

    So I took my X into Sears for an alignment after my lift and since then its been shaking horribly at 60 mph.

    Shopping: V6 or V8 Mustang

    This may be a really dumb question but is there any reason to go with the 6? I personally want the 8 but I found a nice 6 the other day. Custom paint, exhaust, intake, nice stereo. I've never driven either - but I want a fun summer car. What are the pro's and con's for both of these?
