Thanks all.

@black - I also wondered why that lever is so highlighted, but I assume that being an american beef it should have a big one .

@JayD - I agree the case with manual, though I did a little compromise because of the re-sale (in case if needed quickly) and thought will try the american way! Also as you said (more than enough for us) the traffic in LA is horrible now which is getting worst day by day. The 405 freeway and Santa Moonica or Sepulveda Blvds which I commute a lot are literraly crawling in mornings/evenings. No chance to have fun and auto works better on hand and foot.

@immortalz - hehe, anyway this is my first vehicle in US and I am happy I got it as a Mustang, one of my all time favs and a true American cult car.

Not yet driven her fully, was engaged with some weekend support works. Will post my first/initial report soon.

When you get a car, you will get a temp regn from dealer and you should display the records with dealer info through your windshield. I have it displayed on the right bottom of my windshield. When the regn records are updated at Dept of Motor Vehicles, they will send you the updated title document with your plates with number and small regn validity stickers (small ones with month and year) to stick on them. You should remove your dealer plate and bolt the new plate and stick the regn validity info stickers on top part of the plate. Till you get that, you can drive with this plate.

Congrats again dude.
You haven't wrote about the ride and feel of the "black mamba" yet.

Have you test driven other muscle cars also?

Mustang is also one of my favorites!!!
