I have a 2011 GT/CS, and as soon as I saw the black grill on the 2012 GT/CS, I switched my chrome one for it. Chrome on a Mustang doesn't do it much for me, that black grill is perfect.

Best:11 GT/CS

Those fog light delete holes are terrible. I guess some like them since you can buy them aftermarket but it's one of those things I can't get my head around.

Genuinely tough choice, but I had to vote GT even though I'm not a fan of the large running pony. I'd much prefer a tri-bar emblem in the middle of the grille.

Second choice would be the Pony Package and it's nod to Mustang history.

If the Boss 302 grille had fog lights instead of dummy openings, that would be my fave by miles and miles. As mentioned I like a tri-bar emblem in the middle of the grille, and I much prefer the grille surround to be painted body color, as on the V6 cars. In fact this is the look I'm going to go for on my car, if I can just figure out how to marry the GT fog lights to the Boss grille.
