I have the base with the little fog lights in the bumper. To get sync in Canada you had to upgrade to the premium. Can't remember if it was standard on the premium or had to add a package also.

Mike, that's due to Canada's DRL requirements. LEDs can't be used for DRLs and for mechanical reasons they don't use HIDs.

Dave: Get your VIN and look online for ford window sticker viewer. You can just out your in VIN the url and see the factory sticker.

Here it is: http://services.forddirect.fordvehic...in=xxxxxxxxxxx Replace the X's with your VIN.

If you're in the US, you have the tech package at least.

Thank you for the info.I looked it up and i did get the premium model.Its funny, i had
bought another model that was a base one and all the paperwork was signed.The dealership called me the nest day and they had given me to low of a interest rate through ford credit.So i could have backed out of the deal,but the dealership had this
model for $500 more with the lower interest rate so im pretty happy.I only wish
Canada we had more selection to choose from.Funny thing the dealership had lots of
Boss mustangs in stock and they are not selling.In the province of Ontario we pay a
15% tax on a car so its a killer.

Mike, do your fogs not stay on all the time?

2013 Mustang GTs in Canada have the V6 grill because the fogs on the '13s are LEDs. Since LEDs can't be used for DRLs they install the V6/CS foglights and use them instead. At least, that's the reasoning I've been told for it. GTs do have V6 grills though.

Must be that you guys can't have LED-powered fog lights then rather than DRLs. Interesting.

Before I chose candy Apple I almost bought a blue one with no fogs in the bumper!? I heard about the gt in Canada not having the grill fogs available but wasn't sure of the reason why? Something about federal law blah blah blah.LOL

LED fog lights. LEDs on them, like the ones in our headlights, are not functional for use on the road. They're just there for other people to see you. However, fog lights are meant for visibility for the driver. Different circumstances.

Canadian car fog lights and you can also see my cheap stock hood grill mod.Removed by
using a hand saw some honeycomb then Plasti dipped the whole grill and painted the radiator
with black spray paint.

I envy y'all. All I wanted was a leather wheel and fogs. Too bad I had to go premium. Just showing my jelly
