what the heck kinda mileage were you getting with the m5??? our 2007 was getting like 9mpg city, 4mpg errrrr "merging", and 17mpg hwy TOPS!!?? it had a few dinan tweaks, but nothing drastic??

on the other hand, my near 600hp cobra gets 24mpg highway..not really a comparison in "build quality" between the two tho!!! LOL

but i digress.....

enjoy the new truck..i like those ecoboosts, and im glad that ford finally put something like that on the table.....

I ordered my truck and it was delivered to me on dec 26th!!! good enough christmas for me!!! haha

CONGRATS....pics will be required and expected now...

M5 ('08/SMG) over a 6000+ trip Tx/Ca/Tx was 19+ mpg - another was 2000+ hwy, I got 22mpg (no city driving) - around town here it's 14/15+ mpg (told ya I'm no hot-footer)

so as to NOT hijack the OP's thread.. I'm sure you'll find your new truck to be everything you're expecting it to be.....Bill

out of curiosity, what year was the 5.4??? i had an 03 5.4, and while the mileage was decent for a lifted, 35" tire truck, it no way, no how, not even close came near the power/torque of these new ecoboosts 6 bangers...

i still love the sound of a v8....if my 6.7 sounded like a 5.0 i would be in heaven......LOL...i am greatly begining to appreciate the sound of turbo whistle though.....

My old one was a 2010. I agree I will miss the v8 sound.

Thanks for all the responses. I will post pics as soon as possible.
