Afterall I dealt with the same dumb sh1t when I replaced the outdated headlights with these projectors that I absolutely love the look of.
Hey! I defended you on the headlights!

As much as I hate how they look, they are a MASSIVE improvement when driving at night, I put a set in my Dodge, and when I find the right set for my GMC, that's the next upgrade.

Note, I already promised to point and laugh in your turn signal thread, and even named a source for them for you!

Haha, I got some projectors with halo's on my 'stang! They are awesome at night, better than any other reflector style headlights I have seen, and I personally think the halo's look pretty cool at night, but at day I think mine looks really weird so I might get some smoked OE style headlights

Oh, and I think the lip spoiler looks pretty cool! Have anyone tried putting a duck tail spoiler on the New Edge? I love how they look on the S197 and the '67 GT500's

I didn't single anyone out, but I'm also not new to this scene at all and have found that it is nearly always those types of folks who are the most belligerent and shoot their mouths off the most about how other people mod their cars as if their Mt Dew drinking wife beater wearing asses were actually some kind of authority when it comes to style.

What's wrong with Mtn. Dew? I prefer Coke actually, but still, Dew's cool so leave it alone. If you have to stereotype a soda then let it be Pepsi.

As far as the rest, in an online forum setting such as this, and especially when you make threads like you do, you're asking for opinions. Even if you don't think that's what you're doing, it is. And if you haven't noticed yet, Mustang owners tend to be purists to some extent. There's a known and established area of what's cool and what's not, and if you're gonna be a pioneer on something (luggage racks for example) then you can expect some contrary opinions. You can also expect some compliments when it turns out better than we all expected.

Lip spoiler looks good. I prefer a larger one like the stock, Saleen or Roush 4 post as I think the back end of our cars looks a little V6ish without a spoiler, but what you did there is different and looks good. We can all appreciate that I think. And on behalf of Mustang owners everywhere, a big thank you for abandoning the luggage rack.

Hey, leave Pepsi out of this!!!!!

And there's nothing V6ish about a wingless car, I like to think of it as Bullitt-ish....

Hell, I've got a V6 bumper cover on my car.......
