The side angle profile looks good on the 13 and 14s. But I kind of have to agree with the hamburger face. Maybe if you changed up the lower fascia, it'd be better.

I prefer mine though:

When I was buying my v6, I was torn between the 14 and the 15. Personally I love the euro-esque styling on the 15, especially after seeing it at the auto show. I went with the 14 for 2 reasons. The solid rear axle, and the $4k in incentives at the time.

I personally think the 14 being the last of the solid axles is kind of special in a weird sort of way.

The 15 while more euro(reminds me of an Aston Martin) still had a hint of mustang flavor. I've had IRS is a few vehicles and it just doesn't have that muscle feel that a solid axle gives.

I don't know the more pictures of the 15s I see the less and less difference I see between the 14s and 15s. Sure there are differences but not nearly as different as the 2004 and 2005s. With them being so similar I don't see how people can love the 14s and hate the 15s

Really???

I mean it's not as drastic as the change from the s95 to the s197, but it's still definitely a huge change in style.

I am a V6 owner and a firm believer in the 3.7 Cyclone, but watched a video of a EB 2.3 turning 12.56 1/4 mile.

An piece of exhaust pipe from the turbo to the rest of the exhaust. It can either be a high flow converter or a straight up cat delete.

For a turbo cyclone that's slow. They're in the mid 12s all motor with the right setups. I'm sure there's a lot more in it. 3.73s are probably hurting it, the CFM car went from 3.73s to I think 3.31s and picked up some time. Also, suspension suspension suspension if not done already.

Sweet video...three cars.... Three standards

I prefer the standard, but I would have thought they'd use automatics.

They didn't test the cyclone, the turbo was on the EB. Unless I'm not understanding what you're saying...?

I bet that's because FR hired (or has) expert drivers who can consistently launch better and shift faster than the auto trans can. Not to mention they would only show the best run of each car in the video.

Of course they did. It's all about marketing. Now I will say it's impressive with just some minor bolt ons and slicks to get that, but I'd like to see how consistent it is.

If one shifts consistently, probably very. If it were me? HA, my best day and best shot probably won't be within 1/3 second lol

For a professional, I doubt it would be challenging. I know I have improved, but I think the transmission needed a bit of break in time. Often 2nd to 3rd would hit the forks or gates, and a smooth FAST shift was not possible. Over time it became less and less frequent, and now I can't remember when it even happened last.
