Everything else is just more weight to slow it down.

Almost everything you mention is available in current models, or as custom mods. What I would really like to see is:

1. Larger glove box.
2. Functional map pockets on the doors.
3. Move the rear view mirror closer to the top of the windshield.
4. An available storage unit with the overhead map lights.
5. Keypad built into the door like the sedans have.

5. Can be purchased. I posted about my experience with locking my keys in my car and someone posted the link.

Totally agree... It is a Mustang not a fancy luxury car. If you don´t like how the stereo sounds or works, then turn it off, so you can listen to the REAL music in a Mustang, the V8 ROAR

I intend on getting the keypad to add to my car, but the ones molded into the door pillar look so much better IMHO. especially some of the newer touch screens.

If someone offered an overhead console that you add on, I would be interested, but I have not seen any.

+1 These are not fancy cars for fancy people. My 68 fastback has a 4 speed 390 and AM radio. This car should be the same. I would have got one without power windows or door locks if they made it. There are plenty of fast cars like the SHO taht have all the fancy stuff. Take away all the option packages and give me a vinyl bench seat and the drag pack.

You're right... as a matter of fact, they should just roll out the Model T for the ultimate purist.

I'll take my car with options.

Really curious to see what they do. A part of me hopes that the 2015 will look like a more muscular Aston Martin. Either way, im going to wait and find out.
