Here's what I noticed has been changed from the concept:

1) You will notice that the back bumper end has some new ridge/inset running horizontal right above the rear exhaust. The concept was smooth and clean. This change makes the back look too busy with the license plate and dual exhuast black thingy.

2) They added the backup lights in the stupidest place. Come on!!! You mean to tell me sticking the backup lights smack dab in the middle of that beautiful back end is better than putting them in the center of the rear lights!

They also increased the size of the side lamps, which we figured would happen, but they did that nicely.

Anyway, I guess I'm a bit disappointed in the changes I've mentioned, especially the backup lights. We should all protest that! We'll wait to see what else, and yes, I'm curious as to the gas cap.

This Mustang owner still may become a Camaro owner...we'll wait and see.
I actually think the rear bumper is better looking with the added 'ridge' across it.

I'm indifferent on the backup light location. It looks fine to me, I think on either side of the license plate would have looked better, but I understand that won't work for foreign plates.
