99 Mustang GT Hood and Front Bumper Cover

Like the title suggests, I need to get a hood and front bumper cover for the Mustang and I'm thinking not stock. Please post up any suggestions and PICS and ideally also what make, brand, where to buy info. Let's see what everyone likes. I lean toward understated and subtle, like a plain 2 inch cowl and a cobra bumper, but I want to see what everyone thinks, I bet you folks will come up with something that'll make me go "Must Have"... thanks for any suggestions and opinions, I really want to see what you think. If it helps, I plan to keep the car yellow, and it is going to be getting a LOT faster and better handling in the coming months. Oh, and I plan to dabble in 70's and 80's porsches for a bit too. Heheh

I just bought an '03 Cobra bumper cover for $178 brand new, and the fitment looks to be excellent. I should have some pics of it painted and on tomorrow for you. The bad part is that the Cobra chin spoiler for the 03-04 is $190, more than the cover itself. Still not bad combined though.

If it weren't for physics and law enforcement, I'd be unstoppable.

I like the 99-01 cobra front bumpers they ARE THE HARDEST front bumper cover to find trust me but THEY ARE WELL WORTH IT!

I could find like 4 to 5 03-04 cobra bumpers on my craigslist 3 of them were aftermarket piece of poos and 2 of them were authentic I just wanted to prove a point that they arent as rare as the 01 cobra bumpers and they look so awesome heres a pic of my 03 GT with a 99-01 cobra bumper.

not trying to hijack this thread but, do only the v6 n gt front covers have the indent in the middle of the bumper for the front licence plates? i just recently noticed the cobra covers lack them? that would bug me trying to center the front license plate.

Yes, the Cobra bumpers don't have the indent. But there's 2 dimples in the Cobra bumper cover to indicate where to put the license plate bracket.

I really like the 01 cobra bumper, but no idea where to find one with lights that isn't a fortune. Mee, that bumper isn't my style, but I do like that hood, the 95 cobra cowl hood is sweet
