New California Special

For those who were wondering the 2012 California Special does have a nee blacked out grill. It's still plastic, but much better than the chrome on the 2011. I caught a shot of this red one on the dealership lot tonight while at work.

I do prefer the chrome but it looked better on the last GT-H with the larger grill

Lol. I have had my 2012 CS for a few months now and I have the black grill. Ford's website still shows chrome grills on the 12's, but originally I figured maybe they just did it for the black CS's. I had to google like mad when I bought the car to see if it was supposed to be black, or if the dealer had swapped it. The black grill is KILLER with the black exterior

I pulled the cs stripe and put black 5.0 badges on mine. I think it looks much better.

Nice! I'm red with black accents so that badge would look good on my ride.

Unless you're a pimp black grills always look better.

That's the way to do it. I don't know why they thought it was a good idea to put a satin black stripe on top of gloss black paint to begin with. It just looks out of place.

Same thing goes for the rear deck lid and the bottom of the spoiler. Both of those would have looked better painted IMO

Still glad they offer the CS in black though. The Carbon interior with black exterior is an awesome combo.

Is the black grill plastic or a billet powder coated black?
