We all have our own perspective on mods. Most of us have done them at some time. It's your car and your money, so it seems to me to come under the "pursuit of happiness" we all enjoy in this country. That having been said, I am saddend every time I find a moderate to low mileage Cobra for sale that has been molested by too many, or overdone, mods. While the dealer has some advantage and we never get what we want, a stock vehicle is almost always worth more than one that looks like it has been 'hot rodded'. The simple truth is that the dealer can't get as much for the modded ride. Watch the Barrett-Jackson auctions and hear what the knowledgeable commentators have to say on the subject. If you want a more sporty Mustang, get a GT or Cobra. Moderate mileage '99 & '01 Cobras are out there for far less than you paid for a newer Mustang premium. I don't intend to critize what you have done, just offering an alternative perspective. No matter what else, enjoy your ride.
