I like it, but those rims have GOT to go.

Also the amber lighting needs to hit the road, and it needs a nice blackout job on the lights(tint) as well as some nice dark windows.

2003 Redfire V6,
Show: Smoked everything, cobra front bumper, gt rear bumper, rear decklid and lower valence blackout with black mustang letters, 5% rear front 15%, black 98 Cobra rims front, 95 Cobra R rear black with chrome lip, black scoops and spoiler and exhaust tips

Go: CAI, True Duals with flowmaster super 44's, Bama Tune, full suspension (lowered, 8.8, 4.10s, UCA, LCA, springs, CC plates)

I have to say the styling on the 2013 is better all the way around but yeah those wheels are bad. Also even though I like the way the front looks I feel that it should really only be available on the GT500s its what really made them stand out. So glad they changed the rear though!

Wheels are heinous. Front end as well. I like the rear though. It's like a butter face chick with ugly feet.

This, plus a rear end plastic instead of a real butt.

Anyone feel like as far as design they are going in the wrong direction? I mean performance is where it needs to be but the way they are beginning to look seems like they need a reboot.

Wheels are terrible, rear license plate insert is way too big. The front end grill surround is too chunky, never realized that on other pics. Looks like the only change that I like are the rear tail lights.

Rapid spec 400A with 6-speed MT, 3.73 limited slip axle, 19" painted aluminum wheels, HID headlamps, comfort package. FRPP tune with K&N air filter.

Wheels suck. Front end sucks. All models look the same now.
The 2013 loss the aggresive look to the front like the 10-12's have. Hood is to plain, even with the extractors. And what's with the smiley?

I like black cars and all but I think the ALL blacked out look needs to die already. Amber lights would really look nice on it to me though.

The front end looks like a catfish's snout. Maybe it's just me, but when I look, I see this...

2 months to go till I get this car. I like everything about it. What I don't like about the 10-12's is that cheap looking plastic for side skirts and the hump on the hood. Looks bad ass from the side angle but from the front Mmm no thanks id choose aftermarket hood.

I was torn between silver, grey, or black until I saw the 2013. Since no matter what color you get will have black going the whole way across the back, I think that car really has to be black. I'll be ordering mine mid-May so it's there waiting for me when I get back to the U.S.

Also, I don't get all the hate on the '13 front end (looks like the '12 GT500), but I'm with everyone on the plastic surrounding the plate and the terrible wheels. Luckily the Brembo wheels carry over.

All I can say is I'm glad I got a 2011. This seems to be way too much of introducing something new and nothing major in actual performance. Plus I love the look of the 2nd S197 refresh. Leave the GT500 look to the GT500!

I don't like the nose at all, but have mixed feelings about the back. Though whats up with the crap around the license plate in back?
