I agree...wish we could get the alcantara seats without the Carbon Fiber trim!!

Yea, but the spun aluminum isn't functional either. Fake carbon fiber is better than fake wood-grain.

What the hell? Ford just built an entire car almost completely out of carbon fiber(Ford GT). They where the first manufacturer to put carbon fiber wheels as standard on a street car(GT350R). You really think they can't offer real carbon trim in a Mustang! You guys kill me. Its not like carbon fiber is unatainimum from another planet. Good lord! You may not like the look that doesn't mean its fake. All these years people have complained about how cheap the interior of the Mustang looks, now Ford offers a real carbon fiber upgrade with nice leather and you guys sound like a bunch of monkeys playing scrabble! Thank god Ford is classing up the Mustang interior keep it coming!

Who cares about the tri-bar DRL's... They're there, can't you see them in the photo? Just unplugged I'm sure. The DRL's only look good from the sides and are so dull and dim, that it is pointless to call them DRL's.... Just about every other manufacturer that has LED DRL's are 2-3x brighter than any Fords LED DRL's. Even Hyundai and Kia have nice bright DRL's, that are actually daytime visible. Ever since the mustang got the parallel bar DRL's in 2013, they've been disappointing. No company has made any attempt to give them some brightness and daytime visibility, just silly colors, that are even more dull and dim.

And now with a dual fuel system in the gt, it'll be doubly tough to tune and a nightmare. The more I see the front end, the more I dislike it.

We are having issues with heat, gear synchro and software on the new 10 spd in the MY 18' Raptors we've sold as well. And, those same issues are occurring with the ZL1 and it's 10 spd. More gears always equal more heat, more compact, and ten times more potential problems.

Um...yes it does. Most of continental Europe is all right hand traffic (LHD). UK is LHT/RHD.

Please inform yourself about the EU Mustang before posting. Until now the 6th Gen Mustang in europe has no active tribars, which really is a big Thing because they used really cheap yellow halogen bulbs in the foglight as DRL. in a 40+k car it's really bad. They removed the LEDs in the Tribars because they don't match european requirements. That's why a lot of people added aftermarket tribars, even though they are illegal here.
With the facelift we finally get LED DRL Tribars in the EU Mustang. And as we hear in that one video the european Mustang has brighter LEDs as DRL than the US model for these requirements.

Have you seen the Diode Dynamics DRL Tribars? They are really bright and more like real DRL

And if that isn't crazy enough the EB with automatic is 23,000 euro more expensive than the EB manual. 2,000 of that actually goes to Ford for the automatic and 21,000 is additional taxes because of higher Co2 emission.

  • The performance rear spoiler will be an option on EU models
  • No information about Magnetic Ride atm
What would be interesting to see if they redid the headers on the RHD cars, fixing there original cock up, which robbed us of a few horses!

Those parts are extremely low volume and at this point carbon layup is all hand work. This process would simply not work for a high production volume product like the Mustang. The best you'd get is sort of carbon overlay on an injection molded part.

I still believe my 2017 EcoBoost is so much better looking than MY'18 EB. If the new EcoBoost will have less power than the current model (as posted by Ace), then I am so glad I did't wait for the facelift.

It's not that. It's the PETA protestors blocking the roads to the ranches.
