It's funny how you feel as if your opinion makes others wrong.

I still think it doesn't look good in any profile that shows the front of the car because I just have particular things that bother me when it comes to angles and how things flow.

Sales will show the popularity of the new style. Just like everything some will like it, some wont, and it will eventually grow on others. To me, every car needs some sort of aftermarket help to perfect it. Unless we are talking high dollar cars. Once people start lowering them, blacking things out, adding new bumpers, i will probably have a different opinion myself however stock does nothing for me yet.

Its optional.... Some people like it, some don't so if you fall into that latter then you can spec it off the car.

8K miles on my GT and I haven't used it once. I guess if I went to the strip now and again it would be nice. But I get bored going straight.

The only time I used it... when the tire shop is a 1/4 mile from your house and your about to get new tires mounted... But now i'm super jealous because I don't have a burnout happening on my speedo either! Feel totally ripped off.

I'm less hyperbolic in my assessment. Overall, it still clearly is an S550, and about 99% of the public won't be able to tell the difference. Like - headlights, lowered hood, rear end. Don't like - lower grill. Need to see hood vents, but pictures don't look great. Overall, pretty much a wash.

Sort of like many of the folks in this thread who have loudly and repeatedly professed their hate for all things 2018 front-end?

I was able to get a look at the ordering guide companion and I see that the Torsen differential and optional gear are no longer listed as part of the GT Performance Package for 2018. Is the lack of those items a big deal to somebody like myself who does not track the car other than an occasional couple of passes at the drag strip? I appreciate your patience with me since I am new to the Mustang community.

Fleet preview guide indicates that the LSD is now standard on all models. It does not specify Torsen but I can't see why that would change.

Are you talking about the fleet order guide that has been out for a while? That doesn't have enough detail to draw any conclusions from.

No, I am referring to the document that the dealers received a few days ago. I'm not sure of the official name, but it details what is contained in the GT Performance Package, Black Accent Package, and Carbon Sport Interior Package.
