    The black bumper is not stupid. However it does look better on some other colors.

    Yeah, it's a key design element that makes the GT500 unique - you paint that and you've got a front fascia treatment that looks like every other Mustang.

    It was a bit shocking when first revealed but it took me almost no time to understand __exactly__ why they did it, and now I love it and can't image the car without it!

    Why couldn't it be painted? It's a simple urethane bumper cover.

    If you see any Race Red Mustang on the streets , you will like the way it looks no matter what it is.

    Agree, it’s really growing on me. I was dead set against it when I saw the dealer meeting leak photos.

    Well everyone feels differently when it comes to the topic. I bought a 2015 hellcat challenger 6 speed, then traded it for a 16 charger hellcat auto. I had to see what all the hype was on the A8 tran. It was a fantastic transmission , however if your not drag stripping the car man does it take the fun out of owning a muscle/sports car. Your blinded and think its fun at first then your true roots call to you and you realized you have made a mistake. The day I sold my charger then bought the 350 was a very happy day to say the least.
    I won't make that mistake again. However maybe about 30 years from now I'll feel differently. :fingerscrossed: 42 years old at the moment.

    To call this an "automatic" transmission is a bit of a misnomer. More like a manual transmission that shifts itself faster than any human can imagine. No valve body, torque converter, or planetary gear set. Yes you lose the connection of being part of the driving experience but this transmission is the greater performance option in every way.

    As I said before some could Care less about tenths of a second. I am one of many. It could be better in performance in every aspect like you think however I choose the car you drive. Not the one that drives you.
    Settling for an spin dial a matic is like driving a lesser car, fun factor thrown out the dam window. My opinion of course.

    I want maximum performance and if the DCT deilvers it then I'm not going to cry over spilled milk. Bring it Ford, as there are many more that can't wait.

    Hahaha, that's a bit dramatic - as I've said in several other posts, you're still regulating throttle, braking, steering, and for that matter, [optionally] selecting gears. Pushing a clutch pedal is only one of the dozens of driving engagement points - it's not like a DCT lets you sit in the back seat ... :D

    For every Yin there is a Yang......I personally wouldn't own this car with a manual and I am elated its a DCT, if all works out will have one first round.
