I must say, the back looks absolutely terrible. But I do love the new hood. Wasn't a big fan of the overall facelift and changes of the car. Still like the 2011-2012 5.0's a lot more.

I bet the '10-'12 would look awesome with those heat extractors installed on a stock hood. If someone wants to let me play Mad Scientist on their hood, I'd gladly Dremel those bad boys on there.

I don't like the back except for the taillights. IMO the taillights and blackout panel look freakin sick, especially on a white mustang. Although I think there should have been an option to get some non tinted tails and no blackout panel for people that don't like it.

I agree with you all. And the one I actually saw was white lol. I don't know, I guess it'll grow on me a bit. But I hope they sell the hoods, might have to invest in one of those lol. I just don't feel like the front end looks all that aggressive vs the 2010-2012 bodies.

Funny was thinking about doing that!!! Figure if I f-up, replace with a Cervini ram air. Have to source the vents first then have the back-up money just in case.

Hood won't work/fit without whole new front bumper cover. Hood doesn't come all the way forward

Re: Saw my first 2013 5.0 driving around

I was at dealer today. Looked at a new GT an a new Boss. I can't get into the rear or the new hood. The back end looks square again like the 05-09. I just don't like it. And the hood looks chea to me in person. Like it was done by some honda dude think he gain 30whp from it. I don't know thats me. I will happily keep my 10-12 body style.

Your right dude.... I was at the dealer a couple of weeks ago cause they just got a shipment of like 8 2013 stangs in and imho they look cheaper..... I thought the color matched skirts and difuser would be pretty cool but in person i think the 10 to 12s bodys look fantastic. Its to refined now and kinda has a pretty boy look rather then a tuff guy look....thats my opinion tho and cingrats on the 2013 purchasers

Yeah, I do like the heat extractors. Was thinking of getting Cervinis ram air hood. But defiantly like the more aggressive nose of the '10 - '12.

Good feedback. I haven't been close enough to a 2013 to take a good look at it. Maybe I should drop by Ford soon and take a look.

Guy I work with just took delivery of his '13 boss. Got to drive it today. Wasn't that impressed with the performance over my '12 gt. I do like the looks of the '13 a little better.

Maybe I'm an *******, but if I got a 2013 Boss, I wouldn't be letting anyone behind the wheel for a LONG time.

Re: Saw my first 2013 5.0 driving around

Obviouly I like the '13s...seeing as I ordered one, but I've always loved the shelby front end and now I can get that with the GT price tag. Few mods, and smiles from here on out.

My mom and I saw this one and she wanted a pic of her with the Gotta Have it Green. I can't stand it, but she liked it.

I would say keep the '11 and add a boss intake to it. I like the body on the '11-12 better. I am not sure if I will jump to a '15 when they come out. I love the '11 and don't ever want to get rid of it. This is stang number 5 in my life and I didn't keep the others. I have regretted selling them. The last one was a '99 cobra that was #55 out of 8000 for the year off the line. I wish I still had it.

I am not impressed with the 2013s. The hood is ok but if you want a shelby type hood buy a shelby. Now the 2013s and shelbys look alike. Im happy with my 2011 no doubt

Re: Saw my first 2013 5.0 driving around

I guess I'm the odd one here... I really love the back of the '13s. Although I'm wondering how the chrome tail light accents would look with it... and if the ones made for the '12s would fit the '13s. As for the hood, I love that too... the heat extractors are awesome, but would love to see some chrome ones. Can you tell I like chrome? lol
