I agree, I'm not a fan of the cs grill but as you said, to each his own. Off topic, but I also like the 5.0 on the fender that the non '13's are missing.

Interesting poll. IMHO HIDs play a huge factor in the look, which I prefer from not only the appearance factor, but the improved night vision. My favorite OEM Grille (I believe I am in the minority) is the base V6 with HIDs and Fog Lights. I tried to add this V6 front end to my 12 GT. After receiving all of the parts, the dealer could not install them as the V6 front end parts are slightly different than the V8.

So with HIDs 12 GT/CS and without HIDs 12 GT.

I added GT/CS front grille and lower fascia to my GT (didn't car for the other CS stuff and couldn't get brembos with CS). Initially caught a lot of grief from friends/family, over time most all have said they now prefer it.

I would go with 12 GT/CS, but if the Roush grill counts, I would take it over all of them.


2012 GT, Grey, Boss front bumper, Roush grill, Borla Atak, Steeda springs.

2012 Mustang GT 5.0- Brembo brakes, Borla Atak exhaust, Roush billet grille and Boss Front Splitter.

Saleen and Roush were left off because they're not OEM. Both great looking grills, but didn't go along with the poll I was looking to create.

I vote for the Pony Package. I have the base V6 one. How hard are these to change out? I've been thinking about changing.

Good poll.

This question is MUCH easier than the favorite grille question... the bright chrome pony, because it really pops on the black grille and shows off the beautiful sculpturing of the emblem. And as OCD as it sounds that little dash of chrome up front balances out the chrome on the faux gas cap at the rear. Its safer too... black chrome on one end and silver chrome on the other can cause a car to become so unbalanced it can flip over onto its roof at any time without warning.

Picking a single favorite grille is about to short about my brain. I love the GT with fogs naturally, not just because that's my car, but because my last several cars didn't have 'em so its a cheap thrill. But I also love the Pony Package for how well it evokes the original Mustangs and what's not to like about the all-business look of the '12 Boss? More thought required.

PS Quoting yourself...

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.

Thanks for the input. Glad to see this poll is still alive and active.

I'm currently sporting the stock GT grille with a blacked out pony. I think it gives it an slightly custom look while maintaining the fog lights. Also costs just a few sprays of plastidip to take care of.

My favorite grill is a Weber.

My favorite grille is the '11 GT/CS, it just has a classic look to it.
