$100 For a Non-Performance Mod

Hey All!

I just won a drawing at work and got $100 to be used for "fun" money. There's not much in the way for performance that I can do for $100 so I was wanting to go the "beauty" route.

I've thought about the mirror covers from AM or possibly some better than factory floor mats with the pony logo or GT logo in crimson to replace the stockers. I'm not much for interior bling but the AC knobs in satin look kind of cool.

Anyone have any thoughts on a good way to blow $100 on my 06GT?

I like the mirror cover idea. There's also the shock tower covers and radiator cover extensions for under $100.

I like those, too but I was thinking of something for the exterior or interior that would be readily seen. I guess I could pick up some economy CMDP's as a cheap perf mod... I dunno...

First of all, I didn't even know you could draw. But here are two options:
Go the "beauty" route - spend the money on something for your wife.
Or you can increase your performance - spend it on Viagra.

2013 Boss 302 gotta-have-it green
2008 Shelby GT500 torch red with black stripes + sequentials
2001 Cobra mineral grey with 2003 Mach 1 shaker hood
1996 Cobra color-shifting mystic paint + sequentials

How about a set of hood pins?
The CDC hood struts are $99.
There are lots of interior Billet items, as well as a few for the exterior - like a billet gas cap door.

'05 Sonic Blue GT w/ '07 V8 engine, 5-sp, IUP, Beige leather interior, nothing else -
just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
