And wow have you started behind the eight ball ... LOL

The car is beautiful, I should know I build them up here at work, but here is what I have noticed about the new Mustangs ..

-Horrible front end aero design
-Convertible top ... ouch ..
-Front and rear bumpers and body design allow the wheels to hang outside the bodyline, doing nothing but creating all kinds of bad airflow
-Mustang under bellies are a mess ...

The good news though is I was thinking about this very thing today as I stared at a GT500 and thought that a widebody kit would go a long way to improve the vehicles looks plus aerodynamics. Add a bellypan to this design and you can see some mean improvements ..

For now though concentrate on driving habits, I drove a coupe for a couple of days with a supercharger and was getting 19mpg on the hwy.

Good Luck
