Nice, I think black is the only color I'd get on a 13. If I ever did.

Not entirely sure if this is a 13, just guessing from the temp plates. Took this pic in the college parking lot after class one day. I wish i could attend college, and have that nice of a car. I guess SOMEONE doesn't need to take out student loans. Lol

I like the 13s but I do prefer the old hood with the bump on top and the 2010-2012 front end

Yeah they are kinda a step down besides the cool LCD screen that's cool but that's a premium feature. The tail lights are cool, but idk of they would look good on the grey (if I wanted them) what do you think?
I think I would do without the center plastic piece

The taillights are pretty cool and it's got cool interior features like the LCD and the optional recaros. But not enough for me to trade my 12. Besides, I like my new raxiom taillights. I just can't get over the rest of the exterior changes. I'm just not a fan..

Yeah that's a 13. You can tell by the tail lights.

I agree with you. I like the '10-'12 hoods as well I think what bothers me is that blatant line at the front of the hood where as its less noticeable with the previous years.

Just bought a 2013 V6 Premium. Sterling gray metallic. I've had it a week and love it! Just joined the forum also.

I agree I like the 13s taillights but the new front end just doesn't do it for me , I'm glad that they only ran the front end I have from 10 - 12 so not as many people have that exact car like the 05 - 09 . Ford got the looks for the 10 - 12 pretty much perfect , everything a mustang should be.

Re: just saw my first 2013 mustang in person

I love my GHIG Coupe......just wish aftermarket hoods were cheaper. The change to the GT500 front end and hood was nice...but 1000 for a carbon fiber with built in ram air and extractors.....errr, gonna be next years mod unless the price drops.

+1 I agree I like the car but the front end looks to round for me and not as aggressive

This isnt an original opinion on the front end but I think its appropriate- Too Dodge-like.

Now that I look at them, I'm really starting to see the resemblance.

I think it's too flashy. It took me awhile to get on board with the changes of the '10-'12. I was a die hard '05-'09 lover until the 5.0 was released. Then I went with stock power over looks. I don't care for the '13 so far, maybe that'll change as time goes by.

I meant I only own one car and its a mustang haha, maybe I should have said "I own a d*** MUSTANG!!!!"

---------- Post added at 03:08 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:06 PM ----------

And when I tell them it's a mustang they're even more impressed. Almost as if they didn't know mustangs were so awesome... I don't think it's an insult to have it called a challenger. In the average persons eyes a challenger is a 600 hp monster!!

But we know it's not and that our cars are better!

Haha they don't even look relatively the same! I do think the challengers are nice though.

Re: just saw my first 2013 mustang in person

Id say the 10-12 GT looks like a challenger...i dont get why the v6 gets painted parts on the sides of the grille and the GT doesnt. I love my 12 but i love the 13 just as much...in the right colour. I just saw a white one it was nice but the flatter rear end and mandatory black trim on the trunk looks odd. I must say though, the gotta have it green colour looks perfect on the 13. That colour would look like crap on a 10-12. Its like the 13 was redesigned to suit that colour.

Don't get the MCA Edition then! I was as surprised as the dealer when we couldn't get what I wanted. Hard to believe that we found out when it came to the MCA Edition ......
You can have it any color you want, EXCEPT black.

What would Henry Ford say to that

I was out at an concert/event today and Ford had several of their cars on display, including a new dark red GT. While I haven't really liked the new one, this is the first GT I've see in person and in that color it was pretty nice.

Re: just saw my first 2013 mustang in person

JimC...thats because the stripes wouldnt show up on the black.....
I would have loved the California Special...but couldnt get in in my Green. So mk MCA editon with perf package coupe will be just fine. Getting a second set of grilles for the mid order color change on the wheels (supposed to be black not gray... ) gonna paint them satin black along with the wheels...will look better with the green brakes and lug nuts..LOL!

Talking Re: just saw my first 2013 mustang in person

I've seen quite a few actually went to Oyster Bake in San Antonio and they had a giveaway for two 13s and I've seen one on the Highway (White Convertible) looked nice just don't like the color white and saw one yesterday in my colleges parking lot. They're nice but I don't really care for the hood and the tail lights only go good with certain colors. But I'm seeing more and more everyday!! Still waiting to see the Gotta Have It Green

I actually saw a 13 on the road. It was GT and it was beautiful. The only drawback that I can say is the tail lights are dark. A little too dark in my opinion. Other than that, that's only thing I didn't like about it.

That's the problem - so many sh*tty pre-2011 V6s that were anemic. You saw them all over the road, and they were redneck mobiles. Then 2011 happened. Game over for Chrysler/GM

I used to see a ton of Chargers on the road here, but it seems like they are dying, imagine that a Chrysler dying. I see a lot of Camaros. The Mustang is still my favorite.
