Boss: 2012 vs 2013

So looking into both of these amazing cars. I liked the 2012 Boss when it came out, but there are a few thins about it i dont like(the C stripe, painted roof, taillights). I really like the 2013s, but the GT500-esque look throws me. That and i like the lower fascia on the 2012 better. So im asking you MM, if you were to buy one, or even if you weren't, which one do you like better. Pros/cons, opinions, whatever you wanna say.(I know most everybody has some sort of opinion on the Boss)

Well since the 2012 Boss is ugly and the C-stripe looks like shit. I chose the '13 by a fucking mile.

The painted cladding adds visual girth, which is kind of counter-intuitive on a car with a purpose like the Boss's. I do think the '13 LS (especially the black) looks better than the '12 LS, but as for the non-LS cars, the '12s look better IMO.

The SYNC and HIDs on the '13s were big things to add, but these can be retrofitted or worked around on the '12s anyway without too much hassle AFAIK.

I guess the Track Apps are a nice addition too, but I don't know too much about them.

I dunno, the more I see the 2010+ the less I like them. I can't wait for a full redesign. Retro is dead.

The fake fog plastic pieces piss me off. Either leave them or take them out of the grille completely.

But that being said, I like the '13.

Don't like the front fascia of the 13 but love everything else about it.

Headlights, taillights, track apps, side mirror light ....mainly the track apps and LCD screen in between guages

If you don't like the front fascia, there is got to be someone willing to trade you to make there 10-12 look like a 13....

And the retro theme is pretty cool it is gonna wear out eventually...but to what ? The GTO was a modern look with muscle and it looked weird....it was like a BMW with a 350 sb...or a football bat !

I don't mind the C stripe on the 2012. I keep seeing the picture of the Orange 2013 w/ the Boss 302 stripe that ends at the top of the fender, that needs to continue onto the hood or it looks odd to me. The painted hood on the 2012 was stupid. The plastic "fog lights" on the 2013 are just as stupid (but easily replaced w/ a new grille). I don't mind either of the tail lights. But the glowing headlight edge of the 2013 is stupid, quit trying to do what Audi did 5 years ago.

I'd say u can't go wrong. Any Boss or 13 Shelby is a win dude.
Personally I haven't gotten into the 13's yet. They have some appeal to me, but the 11-12 look better I think.

I saw a 13 in person today at the dealer, the front end can grow on you after you accept it, the painted bumpers and side skirts are very nice then add the track guages my vote is still for the 13.....

Side note, why was for so lazy to not actually re design the front or just come up with New hood lines .... That really shows pure laziness to use a design that's been in use since the gt500 came back, and ish there are probably a few 2010s running around with the gt500 front end on it because I know I did the research on it but could not afford it....

I do it with my cell phone !

I dont like the scrunched look of the front end of the 2013 whatsoever and although the tail-lights are novel, they arent my style. Overall its an improved car so there is a major plus in that sense but looks come first and so 2012.

I am most free and happy in my dreams.
