    Big spoilers, bonnet scoops, wings, etc look over the top. (IMO).

    Even stripes are hit or miss.

    So there's a limit to what you can do without setting off style alarms...

    TBH i'm more interested in content than just styling differentiation.

    Gotcha.

    I hope they don't try too hard with styling, it's easy to go the wrong way (Moff edition), i think they have that bit nailed.

    For me content will be the point of differentiation i'm interested in, not so much looks.

    Wheels ans stance were very nice.

    Love the stance here. Like everyone else I have concerns with ride quality. I must be getting old but I like a compromise between firmness for spirited runs and comfort for chewing up highway kilometres.

    Ive driven a few 2017 Mustangs with a 20" wheels and low stance such as what Tickford offers (but not actual Tickford suspension). They look awesome but there is no question that the ride quality and compliance is compromised. Only the programable Coilovers will manage this better as far as I am concerned.

    Personally, I could live with it because I like the look that much, but the stock look isnt bad enough for most to justify the compromise if you are sitting on the fence with regards to balancing looks /handling over comfort.

    I'm with you Norm when it comes to some of the body kits and striping. In many, but not all cases it spoils the look of the car. The body lines of the Mustang are already nicely sculptured and the proportions are very good. The best modified examples are either that of very stutble enhhancements to extremely wild. Its the stuff in between that cheapens the look some how,- i.e. looks tacky.

    Does it really need a big rear spoiler? Interesting choice in caliper brand. I would wait till the new 2018 model arrives then bring out a special edition.

    Take a look at the latest arial view of the new GT500. Need to develop own composite body panels to seperate from the rest of the sheep pack. Strips alone with not do this.

    The issue is the Mustang has been swamped by the aftermarket from day 1.

    As a casual observer it would be nearly impossible to know what's a factory offering to an aftermarket one at the moment.

    When Ford finally come to market with a proper special (not just a tribute) it will be a huge success.

    What we need is Factory muscle in the shelby format. A New Gt500 model will help. Wishful thinking.

    My comment regards the wheels is being this is a new model/concept to market I think they could have made a better more appealing choice.

    yer stance is fine.

    Willwood is the go to brake packages sold for anything modded (customisers etc) for yonks and yonks, they fill in the gaps where Brembo Alcon and the other main brands don't offer to market - Bill found a nice hole in the market and fine product, huge USA, custom rods etc massive and alot has been purchased online incl here I suppose BUT being this is on a Tickford Mustang I would expect a brand package.
    IF Ford had done the Sprint gold calipers with Ford or Sprint logos very good to me but not Willwood.

    Post up some pictures of rims when you can

    Tickford need their own bonnet design that when people see they know its a tickford model. A little bit like the walky commodores.

    I could accept tasteful vents, but a composite bonnet in lieu of the factory stamped bonnet would be a huge negative to me.
