I love the new interior, but the exterior styling changes are meh, and the choice to drop the 5.0 V8 and offer only the 3.3 turbo leaves me cold.

I've so far read 2 driving reviews saying the new car is not as quiet as the old one. Unfortunate. I'm not ready to spend Phantom money for my next ride....

I'm with Zathras on the V8 question. I do like the sequential turn signals front and back very much, though. But I read somewhere that front sequentials are not legal in the US, which seems weird because the rear ones have been since the '66 T-bird came out with them.

Sequential turn signals are legal in the US. The Newer Mustands use them. I think what you might be thinking of is that the law required a certain illuminated area for the turn signal, and some Audi models with sequential signals did not reach the legally required minimum area, so had to add on more light for us spec cars.

I saw something about the Audi turn signal issue on YouTube, Zathras--I think that's a different issue.

But I'm sure I read something somewhere (can't find it again now) that said sequentials on the front of a vehicle are not legal in the US. Does anybody here know for sure?

Ok, so here's the scoop: The United States Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for lamps and associated equipment require that all turn signals (front or back, it does not matter) must be at least 2,200 square millimeters in size. The 2,200 square millimeter measurement doesn’t apply to the turn signal as a whole, but rather every single section that lights up in a row. So you can have sequential turn signals on front or back or both, as long as each section of the sequential turn signal meets the 2200 square millimeter minimum size. The Mustang’s signals get a pass because each segment of that turn signal is larger than 2,200 square millimeters.

My guess is the new K900's will NOT pass, because it does not look like each segment of the sequential turn signal would equate to 2200 square millimeters (which is really not as big as it sounds).

That means if the segment of the turn signal is 2 inches in diameter it would pass.

The new K900 addresses my few gripes by adding AWD, Andriod Auto, a phone holder/charger, open pore wood and a screen that splits and multitasks. Losing the fake side vents is good too.
