Cool Help! 2012 gt with Brembos or 13 gt with no brembos .

Hi all. I'm buying a stang this month and need your help. I love the 13 body tails and front end. But I cant find any with brembos . I can find 12s with brembo but id rather have a 13. It will be my daily and I will not track it. What would you do ?

If you're not going to track it, why try to hold out for the Brembos? The stopping power between the two systems is virtually identical, every benefit of the Brembos (aside from aesthetics) is related to the track. I'd say just get the car you want, you can always just add them later if you choose.

I think the 13-14 Mustangs are the absolute apex of all the Mustangs. Go with the 13.

I bought a 14 just a few months ago, and yes it has the TrakPak, Brembo's and Recaro's. I took test rides in a lot of 11/12/13/14 Mustangs before I bought mine and there is virtually no difference in the Brembo package and standard disc's on the street.
By all means go out and by the 13..........forget about putting 14" discs on front and put some GT500 13.8" disc's on the rear of the 13 instead of buying 4 piston Brembo's. This is one of the things I plan on doing to my car.....the stock factory rear disc's are only 11.8..........and the cost is only $400.
If you are looking for a 13 then go out and buy one and as for wheels, they can be changed to whatever you want.....IMHO

i really like the tail lights on the 13-14's but prefer the 10-12's front end, its actually cheaper to buy take off brembo front brakes then it is to buy take off 13+ tail lights lol

Good FYI reading about brakes from Stop Tech:

Technical White Papers

I certainly don't discount what was said in the white paper.
It depends on the weight of the car, our Mustangs are on the chunky side of 3600lb+ and all of my 35+ years of experience as a "back yard mechanic" has been on road courses like Laguna Seca, Sears Point and drag strips from Seattle to Los Angeles.
Bigger rotors are better for two reasons; braking torque is proportional to diameter of the rotor, and the heat dissipation increases with the area. It's kind of like putting a bigger radiator in your car..............but bigger does come with penalty..weight.
So, don't assume that more pistons necessarily translates into more stopping power. More pistons will spread the braking force more evenly over the total area of a larger brake pad, but it's total piston area that translates directly into more braking force and for non-believers..................do the math.
Yes, a lot of this relates to racing.................but it can also help to a small degree on the street.
I haven't taken my TrakPak car on a road course yet, and won't until I get some better pads and put the bigger rotors in back, but have heard and seen guys with the Brembo package hit the track and after some fast laps they've lost their brakes and one guy almost lost his car from going "of-and-on" the track.
Jut thought I'd throw this out their............kind of like the 12 step program in AA, you can take part of this or non of this, it's just my own belief and my own experience.

The 13-14 is the newer body style... it will stay more desireable (than 11-12) and have more resale value. Regardless of the opinion of a few people who happen to own 11-12's and say they like the look of them best. (owner bias)

Plus the 13-14's look like the Shelby's of prior years. Several people thought I had Shelby when I first got my car, b/c they're very familar with cars.

2013 gets my vote. And on the plus side, adding the Brembo's or something similar will be fun. Unless mods = no fun. Even then I'd get the 2013

My vote is the 2013. You can always upgrade the brakes later if you want as time and money permit.
