The Royal Crimson is really nice but these pictures confirm how much I dislike the front end especially from the side view

Ok. I was just getting warmed up to the Auto show pictures and starting to kind of like the look but now this has reset me. The front quarter of the car just does not look right from the side profile.

It looks like a Mazda 3 nose. I think they jacked it up this time folks...and that spoiler sucks.

My thoughts exactly. I don't like how "pointy" it looks. But I bet blacking out that amber portion along the bottom of the headlight would do wonders. I think that would fix the droopiness.

Honda called, they want their spoiler back.

Just tell everyone not to look at your 2018 Mustang from the side.

The frontal area of the 2018 is so much smaller than the blocky 2015-2017 which makes the 2018 seem less aggressive to me. Maybe they're shooting for a high top speed for the GT500 so they needed to thin out the aero in the front? Also surprised to see the big spoiler on the EcoBoost, guess it's a PP car but still think that spoiler is too much. Until I see one of these in Highland Green with the Bullitt treatment I don't think I'll ever be swayed into liking it better than the current look.

I think the new front end looks aggressive. I like it a lot.

Are those "accent" stripes on the tops of the front n rear fenders on the black car? At first I thought it might be light reflecting from the camera flash, but I'm not so sure :)
That is most certainly the new 'wheel and stripe' package as those wheels' finish match the finish on the current wheel and stripe package.

Those stripes are FUGLY.

Ok, so we know what the Ecoboost Performance Pack looks like now.... the "RS" wheels, bigger brakes, and (optional) spoiler.
