Well, this is highly subjective. The vast majority of people who opt to put emblems on their car resort to getting either the chrome or black 3.7 badges. Very few people try anything new or different. I think once or twice I saw a car with a "Powered by Ford" emblem but it's fairly cut and paste in the mustang community. It always has been.

Typically you'll see an AMR/RTR style wheel majority of the time being black with few variances, if they have a spoiler you have a very high chance of it being a GT500 spoiler followed closely by the pedistal style California Special spoiler. I can go on and on about what folks usually do with a Mustang per their generation. Look around, try to be different but prepare for heckling from those who feel you've deviated from the typical Mustang theme.

I'm not in total agreence over the "less is more" disposition in every circumstance. However, you have a '13+ and a convertible. I'm at a loss as to how to assist you in your decision.

A classic emblem is the tri-bar pony (like on the faux gas cap). I'd go with that, if I wanted something there.

Just my humble opinion, but I think your car looks good just like it is.

I did the new style "Power By Ford" emblems. They're kinda pricey, but that makes them a little more exclusive. You also have the option of having a custom emblem made.

In the end, it's your car, and you should do what you want, not what everybody else wants.

Same here. As soon as I saw a mustang with these on I knew this is what I wanted. Goes with the retro look of the car.

If I were to do emblems it would be the Tri-Bar Pony. That's what I'd suggest. But for the past 3 years I've kept my chick slick.
