    Has anyone else noticed the different headlights on the GT500? They look more like the 70 Mustang in their styling, turn signal on the outside. Also, looking at the Grabber Blue GT500 and the replacement for Vista Blue, the headlights are in different positions. Anyone know why?

    Looks like one has a projector setup. Possible optional HID system?

    I thought the HID's were already standard on the GT500 and were optional as of 2007 MY on the GT. Maybe I missed something.

    The HID's are on the inside and standard lights are on outside. But imo the cost of HID's is rediculous. :)

    My 09 has those headlights.
    I like the squished down look of the 2010 nose section, I don't like the tail light section.
    The dark blue is sharp, I'm not sure on that lighter blue, I'd have to see one.

    The dark blue picture looks to me like it is a render, possibly a pre production concept of how the lights should be on the car that were amended in the final production shot of the grabber blue.

    I was thinking it was a render as well. That's my only explanation of it. As soon as a friend in my local Mustang club saw that GB GT500, he sold his '03 650 rwhp terminator with 6000 original miles to order one. He was going to wait for the '11 GT in GB but just loved the GT500 too much.
