    Now we know why the US mustangs seem to perform better than ours.

    Interesting, I knew about the tail lights but never noticed the mirrors.

    Interesting about the performance difference reasoning. I always thought it was because of sound decibel restrictions in Europe and Australia compared to the USA, not because of the placement of the steering arm.

    Seems strange they couldnt mirror the ex manifold from the other side.... Also the different diff ratios too.

    Shouldn't be surprised, they couldn't be bothered putting the handbrake on the right side so it's no surprise they didn't try too hard on the exhaust.
    Im sure the aftermarket will fix that for them.

    The engines are about to get better again, Ford is about to add what it calls PFDI,
    which is port and Direct injection together.
