My wife has gotten a ticket in my car before. Not in the Mustang though. She doesn't like the seats and doesn't even want to be a passenger cuz of the stupid headrests.

the headrests do suck .. you can get 2012's and put them in, or put the headrests on backwards (backwards may not be a great idea, could be dangerous if you get rear ended, not really sure- definatly better than removing them completely though)

the 2012 ones fit i belive and they are adjustable.

and there are aftermarket ones for like 250

Not sure if the 2012's or the aftermarkets are comfortable, but i do know with the stock ones on backwards, there is no headrest interference with your head at all, very comfortable.

Ive got used to mine, i have it in the highest position

My wife was pulled over once already and was lucky to get only a warning. Then she also received a warning from the parking garage attendant at her place of employment. :-)

Apparently she was doing some spirited driving when exiting the empty parking garage late at night. I guess that could be fun in a empty parking garage, and quite loud too. And she complains about my driving??? Too funny.

I've been pulled over numerous times - only to prove the officer wrong. Heh - one time I got pulled over for trespassing with the owner of the property in my passenger seat.

Got pulled over for suspected DUI when I swerved to avoid a pothole.

Can't lie. With gas prices the way they are, I'm glad we have it. Averaging 54mpg is sweet. You wouldn't believe how much storage space those things have as well. My daily is an F150 4x4, so she's definitely offsetting my carbon footprint, lol.
