I think the "bloatyness" that most people are complaining about is the hoods front lip. In the past we're used to having the leading edge of the hood be the "front" of the car.

Now what they've done is brought the bumper up and over the front of the car to where the hood is behind that piece. I don't think the car is any longer than the 2012? Anyone have dimensions on the 2012 and 2013 cars?

The splitter is a good idea because you can add brake cooling ducts to the lower part and still have your fogs.

For me it's not the front end, it's the back end that I can't stand. The back of the 05-09 model looks so much better. I can't even really describe what I don't like about it, it just looks bad to me. Too many angles/planes.

I just wish the interior was made from the highest quality woods and leathers so the price tag would rise to $40k.. on the v6 model.

Is fade due to heat a really big problem with these cars? I've never really noticed it, but then I don't track at all.

Not to mention, how are they going to route that air, it's going to hit that black wheel well cover before it ever gets near the calipers. Too complicated of a job for minimal benefit, and you still get a bumper that looks like ***.

Between 2012 and 2013 was the time these sports car makers tried making a front end similar to the GT-R in my opinion. SRT8 Charger has the look in the front end. And I think the 2013 Mustang has a hint of GT-R in the front end as well..idk I could be blinder than a bat....Still looks sexy to me though. Not the direction I want Ford going in but I'm confident they'll do greater things very soon. Especially for 2015.
