Not a big deal for me, if a price bump is needed to have Ford paint them, I'd rather do without.
I do hear what you are saying that Ford does need to pay attention to the details, worldwide launch and competition at the price point an avg GT will come in at early on, I'm thinking 38k avg price for a 2015 GT b4 taxes, it will be these little things that make it feel cheap or worth 40k. Keep in mind a 40k GT will share components with a 18k v6.
Now a cheap azz plastic Focus interior would be a deal breaker for me.
From the photos I have seen, I think the interior is improved but not all that.
The exterior photos have been a hit or a miss with me. Need to see this car in person and get performance specs before I pass final judgement. It is certainly a competitor for my next car purchase but not a guarantee at this point.
