Default what do you think of this mustang?

My friend is looking to follow in my footsteps and get a mustang, I been searching and we found this in our town for a good price...what do you think of it?

I like it, but I'm not sure how I feel about the color, I'm not a big fan of white cars or black wheels, and when I see them together I just kinda look away....but It looks nice...I think....I think it would look meaner if the car was red or black with non black wheels.

what do you think?

Man you gotta love white!

Seriously though, it's a blank canvas that he can put his own stamp on.

I actually like the white on the current 10-14 cars. However, I don't like the wheels at all, but those can be changed obviously. I personally would find a car with HID lights. I think they look so much better.

blank canvas for sure! I like black wheels on white, but don't like those wheels. White with grabber blue stripes? charcoal stripes? deep impact blue stripes? possibilities are endless!

You can do a lot with white although it's not my fav color. And you can always change those HIDEOUS black wheels (just eggin' on those that actually like black wheels, but not everyone dislikes ghetto I suppose... ).

And it's a 5.0.....

I like the black wheels, I'd slap some matte black stripes on that white so it's not so blinding. Give it a more aggressive look too

I don't like those particular wheels on that car, the big silver center hub looks weird but you can get new wheels.

I think white with black wheels looks pretty good; I am biased though.

So what does your friend think of it? Personally, I can do a white car. As said by others, it's a blank canvas waiting to be personalized.

I like the white car. Looks clean. I dislike those wheels, and really wish that Ford would have painted the side skirts and front and rear valence to match the car. It would look 1000x better if the bottom trim was white. It takes the 4x4 look to a whole new level.

I think white looks good with black accents.

Here's a few black accents:
- Rear black out panel
- Black hood spears or racing stripes from rear bumper to front bumper
- Smoked tail light tint or covers
- Black Vinyl wrap on roof
- Paint the 5.0 emblems black.

The wheels are so so, but would look a lot better with black center caps. The silver center caps look out of place.

My friend also isn't a big fan of how the car looks, but its dirt cheap for being a 2012 with 30k milage GT...We were thinking maybe if he got it and did black racing stripes it might be better...or maybe save up a few grand and repaint the car red or black, It might just be worth it to repaint it considering its significantly cheaper than other 2012 GT we have found.

Its a blank canvas. I hated the look of my car when I first test drove it. It was silver with all grey interior with anthracite bullitt wheels. I wanted to like it but was so bored with it right away. A week later after another test drive I realized it was perfect.....I could make it all my own.

Like others, I don't like those chrome centercaps.
