What would YOU add next?

Here's some quick iphone pics of my base V6 with a few mods... the wheels were put on a couple of weeks ago. I'm just debating what to do next. I keep scratching my head... Exhaust? Grille? ...or maybe nothing else. Decisions, Decisions.

Some input other than my own would be nice!:laughlitt

Nah i like the bullits... the beef of the tire adds a muscular and retro look to it without jumping on the low-profile tire bandwagon like every friggin' car is doing nowadays.

I would add tint and black out the grill/new grill, and you are GTG. Then AB's if you want it louder.

I would do exhaust and maybe clear or smoked marker lights/reflectors. I think the smoked side markers would look good with that Tungsten Gray like color.

For Play: 2011 Ford Mustang v6 Premium Coupe w/Pony Package. Stock...for now.

For Work: 2011 Hyundai Sonata SE. The fun daily driver.

That's a pretty sweet lookin' beast already. Tint sounds like the winner (rear window and marker lights). Being in Sacramento, I don't think it's legal for you to tint the door windows, unless they will let you sign a legal waiver.

Agreed. Nothing wrong with meaty tires. I personally like the classic raised white letter look too. A few 2011+ owners have those already. In this case, no. The subdued look he already has is great.

I love the meaty tires, that's why I've stayed with the 17s. They also fit with the retro body style. As for tint, I've already tinted the three rear windows as dark as California law allows. I'd tint the side windows too, but I work a block from the California Highway Patrol academy, so it's pretty much guaranteed I'd get pulled over for them. The same goes for exhaust. I want something loud, but not something that would attract attention from officers Ponch and John. :laughlitt

Hmmm...If it's cosmetic mod's you're looking for, you might consider a GT500 rear diffuser (aka bumper cover), a larger rear wing, smoked tail light covers, a new hood, or a new fascia. Some of these mod's really cost some bucks, but they're all worth it.

I think your Pony looks pretty good already. Do you have a tune and a CAI? If not, then DEFINITELY get a tune! Be sure to research the in's and out's of loading/unloading them when you take it in for servicing.

<== Two of these ==> on the Tribar Ponies on the body and wheels! I'm still debating going with those or keeping her "slick" (unbadged).

I'd lower it about an inch or so, so springs and dampers would be my next move.

CAI, Tune, and maybe an exhaust. That's all I would do. She looks great just the way she sits now if you ask me. I'm not into the lowering thing as so many are into now, but that's just me.

A new exhaust would make you smile every time you stepped on the pedal :yelpleased:

Shelby GT500 spoiler + GT500 rear fascia would really transform the rear into a nice @$$!
