i think it looks great. The painted rockers and deeper lines on the front nose look good to me.

The more I see the hood and front end.. the more I don't like it. I love the 05-13 GT500 front end.. but it looks watered down on the 13 GT and v6. Too rounded.. too soft. I can't place it... i just don't like it. I thought id like the heat extractors too.. but I'm just not feeling it. I thought the 05-19 hoods were too rounded .. but still looked good. I thought Ford nailed it with the 2010-12 hoods with the mini scowl and aggressive angle.

maybe it's this pic that bothered me:

I'm digging the rear though.

but then again.. maybe I'm just partial because I love mine

The front end on the 2010-12s look more aggressive, and better, to me.

Not sure yet about the rear, but the '13 lights look... odd.

Looks great. They fixed all that cheap looking black plastic the grill surround, the rear valance, the side rockers. A much more expensive looking car. Well done Ford.

Don't like the front end. Looks like a cross of a gt500 and a dodge truck.

Much happier with the look of my 2012. Maybe it'll grow on me. Love the rear end

Finally, the painted rockers. While I agree that it looks more finished...for durability, I like the black because the is no chance of scuffing the rockers with shoes or boots while getting in/out.

HID lights look great on the car, not too crazy about the lower front fascia though. Still have a mixed opinion on the rear tail lights.
