I guess I'm one of the few that doesn't like the look of the CS lower valenca. It's just TOO much....even without the Boss splitter piece underneath it.


I prefer the much cleaner look of the CDC chin spoiler. Plus, it reminds me of the old "snow plow" on the older mustangs.





These guys even had them.











It's just so much cleaner, in my opinion, than the garbled up mess that is the GT/CS valence. ESPECIALLY since most like to put the boss splitter down there too.

I decided to keep the stock lights in addition to the new ones. I added the Boss Splitter to the CS Valance and really like the look. I have the car lowered and have to watch some driveways, but it isn't any lower than the stock front valance. I'm not familiar with the CDC unit so I can't comment on it, but I'm very happy with the Ford stuff.




Same here, my vote for the Boss Splitter, it looks great, really gives an added mean look to the car!

I didn't know the CDC unit replaced the lower fascia also. I just thought it attached below the fascia. I think I like the CS fascia more also.

I like the look of the cs lower fascia. For you guys that have installed this without the foglights, did you block off the holes that the foglights would have gone in?

I like the look of the CS lower also. I did not block off the holes in mine. Left them open for now.

My vote is for CS Fascia without the splitter (yeah I'm alone on this ). The CS and CDC look good alone, I just think with the Boss splitter it crosses the threshold of too much plastic. Unless you like 'hiding' the plastic on black or contrasting it on white, I think overdoing the ground effects is akin to a bodykit - an unpainted bodykit. To each their own. Looks good on the Boss, but the Boss has a ton of graphics already so it's much different than a clean GT. Either way, nice ride, won't see me hating.

I left mine open for now because I can't decide if I want to put the plugs that the Boss has or the C/S fog lights and a Saleen grille.

Thanks for your replies. I really like the look to the cs lower fascia w/o the foglights. It looks terrific even without the holes filled.

Like the others I've left mine open as well. However, one thing you may want to consider if you go this route is hitting the windshield washer reservoir with some matte black spray paint otherwise it will stand out pretty good when looking at the car from lower angles. You can make a paper cone through the opening and aim the spray through that.

^That.. CDC + RTR splitter, if you want to be different from the crowd. Plus, I think that looks better, but I'm sure the splitter will cost a pretty penny

Great idea, thanks for the tip!

Also, I forgot to mention that Cervinis makes a few splitters. A couple of them mount to the bottom of the factory splitter (but are the same price more or less as a full lower fascia replacement)

That would look better than the C/S if they manage to adapt some foglights into it. I like the three holes on the bottom that match up to the factory fascia. Good third option if you're going for unique, haven't seen one of those yet

I just held mine in place by hand and drilled one of the two center-most holes. Then I hung it in place by that middle screw and positioned the two end-most screws. With it held in the right place by the three screws I was able to mark and drill the remaining 23 holes and get them exactly where they needed to be. It was tedious, but it was easy.
