It looks white to me also, but they call it silver. It isn't an option to have the silver stripe with Velocity Blue, only the black stripe. It was a production error and the passenger side is black! I had the parts manager order silver to replace the black stripe on the passenger side once spring arrives. Then again it's almost like having two cars...lol. I took this pic when it was in the showroom. Same car...lol.

So.... If buying a CS and preferring a different color stripe, buy one stripe in the color you want, swap it on and get the dealer to buy the other side to match. Genius.

This was a rushed purchase to get an end of the year deal and 0% financing from Ford. Shopped online, and I don't think they showed both sides in their pics. They took them down the next day.

I would've been happy with black, but since it has one of each, I slightly prefer the silver, so that's the direction I'm going. Lucked out that 21 is the last year for Velocity Blue (for now anyway). Matches my Raptor, except it has black stripes...with silver accent...lol.

Thanks Brett
You’re talking about the faux quarter panel scoops correct? I’ve also felt stick on non functional parts like the fake hood scoops, quarter vents etc were tacky. But these just work. If the stang didn’t come with them from the factory I probably wouldn’t have installed them. When I had my 06 GT I wanted to add the window louvers. They replace existing window but I don’t see them for S550. That would be my only choice on exterior.

The led side marked by DD look cool as well as front turn signals. They sequence like the taillights. Maybe in the future. For now I’m keeping exterior stock. I have to put on the black gorilla lugs but that’s it for now. At least Florida weather is better for the stang 😁
I'm in agreement with you on getting black lug nuts. I put McGard on my Raptor, and am very happy with them so far.

Yes I was talking about the quarter panel scoops. I’ve got the side back window louvers and I thought I might get the scoops as well. I’m concerned that with almost 40,000 miles on the car that the color might not match well. I’m sure that can be corrected but that is my main concern.

What about an accent color?

I was on the fence about the stripes too! Just not a decal guy😃 but the black are very subtle so it’s working for me along with the quarter scoops.

I'm still not sold on these fake side scoops. I get the heritage of them but some days I look at the car and just feel like ripping them off.

Opposite for me. They’ve grown on me and will stay in place.

We’re in the middle of restoring a 68 fastback into a Shelby tribute. Putting on functional side scoops. Maybe the GT/CS will get same treatment down the road.

I agree that having them functional would be cool. If you ever modify yours let us know! Realistically, the front splitter and small wing probably don't do much more than the fake vents. Just window dressing, but I like them. Mine won't see any real track time, so I probably don't need extra venting for the brakes either.

ONTARIO GETTING HIT WITH 50+ CM OF SNOW TODAY!

Was suppose to be driving to Cornwall this morning at 6am for a contract job with a snow storm warning of 50cm+ and my employer says "Let's just see how this storm turns out by the morning!"

This is not even half of what we're getting and don't mind driving in 8-10 inches because the Blizzak's WS80's are fine in that depth but ain't taking any chance with anything deeper than that!...Oh and don't forget to add the best 250lbs of wood smoking pellet's in the back seat for added weight! 👻

Back wheel is almost completely covered!

Sunday morning before the snow moved in....sleeping like a baby 😀
Had it out for a spin on Saturday with bright blue skies and temps in the teens.
It hasn't been washed or detailed since October...holding up well I think.
