Would look better with black and red graphics instead of black and white.
Both look better than without stripes. The wheels look worse as well, IMHO of course.

Great. Now get rid of that cosmetic only spoiler for a real clean look

I finally had the stripes taken off. It was one of the things I hated about the car. Also changed the wheels and exhaust

Historically all past Mach 1 had a stripe on the hood (either wide or narrow), the only thing this one doesn't have the shaker scoop. That stripe would be one of the physical characteristics (besides the badges) that would differentiate from other Mustang. If they wouldn't know the front facia, anybody could say, that's a GT. But then again, it's yours, not mine. I will leave mine with the stripe when I receive it in October.

For me, the stripes are part of the appeal that help set it apart. It looks cool either way though and the blue looks great. If the MACH1 badges were black it would be killer.

I've noticed people who post in this section are willing to die on every hill. I'll live on to fight another day. :p

From my perspective, the stripes on a Mach 1 are an important part of the package. Always have been, and thus I'd never remove them. But when you're one paying for the car, you do you.

Now that I think of it, stuff like this is why I think I've enjoyed my current GT more than the special edition cars that I've had -- with the SE cars, I was reluctant to change all that much with them for fear of them losing what made them special to begin with. I usually left it at mild engine and suspension mods and called it good. With my '15, the sky's the limit. Well, until I found out that it's a 1-of-1 car as I ordered it anyway, but that's another story....

It looks great! I am not a fan of the Mach 1 stripes. I think if it had the shaker hood, I would like them more

It's Isitfast's car. He can do with it what he wants, but I don't care for it. I don't like the wheels, and without the stripes, it looks like just another GT.
Yep, not a fan of a "cookie-cutter" GT.

If he likes it, that's all that counts.
If I lived in a subdivision and he came to my house, I'd tell him not to park in the driveway or in front of the house. But I don't live in a subdivision, so he could drive it right up to the back door.😃
This.

Actually a GT front bumper looks better. That mach 1 bumper is incomplete without the stripes on the body & mach 1 wheels.
You would definitely be in the minority with that opinion. Come to think of it I haven’t seen one other person comment negatively about the front bumper. The only comments I’ve seen are gt guys looking to buy the Mach 1 bumper. And I haven’t seen any Mach 1 guys asking to swap to a gt/ecoboost bumper.
