2012 tail lights question.

Hey guys I currently have a 2012 MCA v6 and I know that starting with the 2013 model year is when ford put the new tail lights which I believe were also lEDS along with the blackout look. I was wondering if there is anyway I could have the 2013 tail lights put on my 2012? If anyone Knows if I can just go to the dealer and have it done.

The '13 taillights are shaped differently from the '11-'12s...If you installed the '13s on your '12 there will be a gap under the taillights...just a random opening, unless you do a bumper swap as well.

I see it now. It doesn't look to bad, good thing is I have a black car as well. Also I love your grille I have the same exact one but it's not black. Did you just paint it or car you order one that way.

$1886.66 just for the lights from Ford Buy 2013 Ford Mustang Parts | FordParts.com
I would look on Ebay and see if you can find a set and maybe a rear bumper cover
