They actually do?! I saw pictures and they didn't 0_o Well that's good news. When I get mine I'm thinking about doing a somewhat Saleen conversion. Only V6 with Saleen around here (TONS of stangs in my city) so I mean why not. But this is my first car so V8 for SURE will be next...just testing out the Mustang life

None of the Pony packages at the North American International Auto Show had the heat extractors in the hood. Only the GT had it.

The rear lower fascia on the 2013 looks MUCH better imo. I wonder if I can get one directly from Ford to fit my 2010...

...Trying to get away from that blatant grey bumper look.

Agreed, and the GT500 with quad tips is f'ing sick.

That is what I call a win!

I have a feeling this is going to be a verrrry popular mod for the 10-12 people. I honestly like the front of the 10-12 better, so a 10-12 with a 13 rear end is going to be too legit.

[QUOTE=MELLOWYELLOW06;7857433]Here are the 2 cars side by side. Looks like the 2010-2012 has a bigger dip down on the bottom. Other than having to change the bumpers, I dont think it will be any other problems with the attachment to the car. Ford is not going to retool the body of the car, right before a design change, just for different tail lights. Mold for a bumper are VERY cheap compared to a new stamping for sheetmetal. Having done the old GT500 conversion, many of the parts and part#s are the same between the years and V6 - GT500. The trimmings and attachments is all they change. All in all, unless you want a perfect fit, I wouldnt change the bumper, since the gap is very slight.

Click the image to open in full size.

Agree. Personally the slight gap wouldn't bother me at at all. However, "if" such an aftermarket product were to be made, it would be nice if they make the same style as the 2013 rear taillight, but with the 2012 shape (bigger bottom dip). Well, I guess we can just wait until someone actually puts it into play..

I'm guessing that a quad exhaust will get big for the entire line-up. I'm actually a bit surprised that it isn't already...

I hope the aftermarket steps up on some 2013 clone taillights because MSRP on the 2013 taillights from the dealer is going to be almost $900 PER SIDE

Uhmmmm that's quite expensive! HAHA yeah hopefully we can see some clones. You can be guaranteed if I see some for sale, I WILL let you guys know where to get some! These rear tail lights seem to be a big hit for people...glad to see it.

What GAP are you guys seeing? Can someone draw a circle on the above photo?
I do like the tail lights on the '13 much better. I think on the '10-'12s, it's the back up lights that sit between the brake lights that were distracting for me. Kind of looks like a stripe.

if you look, the bottom on the 10-12 are more pointed at the bottom, the 12 seems to be slightly flatter, thereby leaving...a gap :P

Lots of folks keep saying that, and lots of folks keep sharing their tales (and pics) of cars with painted rockers going on years, w/o a single chip.

You get what you pay for???

These comparisons you guys are doing from pics, are from a pic of an actual real car, and the other is computer rendered - and does not look like an actual 2013 rear?

This is a real 2013 rear, and for the life of me I'm missing whatever gap you guys are discussing on the lower part of the rear lights? It certainly is not straight across like that blue rendered pic shows, but more like the real 2012 next to it?

Seems like a simple plug n play - with resistors (built in would be nice) for the LEDS will fit the bill for 10+ cars and not cause funky flashes or blinking from the LEDs. This is a 5-10 minute ratchet job!

'10-'12s already have LED tail lights; no electrical work would be necessary.

Haven't seen this pic yet and thanks for posting. Well, according to that pic, and what you've mentioned, it looks like a simple snap in place job....But honestly after re-looking at all these pics again, it's hard to tell now 100% whether it will be an accurate fit, or whether that small little space will be in play. Anyways, guess I'll be setting aside some more of this deployment money in case these lights do become available...

And for the record in less than 2 1/2 weeks I'll be home and finally get to drive my Stang for the first time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New line up, V6, GT, and Boss

The new painted rocker moldings look good, IMO.

Sooo..whats the difference in appearance from trhe V6 and the GT? The hood vents? That's it? No grill fogs?

I may be wrong but I'm fairly certain that both the Black one and the White one are V6s.

Nah that's the new lineup. Black (V6) White (GT) Bus Yellow (BOSS). GT and BOSS appear to have the vents. V6 doesn't look like it does....and neither have the power bulge.
