    Looks good, although I am not a fan of the track pack wheels

    I haven't seen the halo lights on a 2011 mustang, but it just doesn't seem like mustangs should have halo lights, imo.

    Really? I'm suprised. I'm leaning towards the take-off GT500s. I really want those. Thanks as far as the other stuff though.

    Take a look at their customer images at the bottom of the linked page. They don't look bad. The reason I want these is because I'm not paying a buttload for Ford factory projectors.

    I like that you are already getting kind of agressive with picking out some mods for your new car!

    I need to start pulling some money out of my ass and buy some as well next year :D

    Kind of waiting for a flood of aftermarket parts to come out to lower the price of whats out there at the moment. Magnaflow wanted over $600 for a axle back exhaust and I was like LOL. Now they are already under $600 and falling!

    Looks like a good plan. I would definitely go with the GT500 rims over the track-pack wheels.

    I am strangely attracted to the halo projectors on the '10+ styling... Plus a black housing for headlights is just plain :drool: I was so disappointed when the stock projectors came with a silver painted housing wtf.
    As for wheels I would go GT500 with pony centercaps.
    The reason I would stay away from teh trackpack wheels is that they will show off how TINY and PATHETIC your stock brakes look. The GT500 wheels are styled enough that you look more at the wheel and see less of the tiny stock brakes. Just my .02 though

    My other thought is that CAI isn't going to do ****. Save your money or buy a tuner instead.

    Oh and also, depending on your driving position, both of those wings will almost completely block your rear view. If you're wingless now, I'd keep it that way or get a pedestal spoiler.

    You're right about that with the price of the Magnaflows. The Corsa setup is the only one I liked the sound of that wasn't raspy or droney, if you know what I mean. It's plenty agressive.

    I agree more and mroe the more I look at them. Hopefuly no one snatches them up before I have a chance to next spring.

    I can't wait to see how they look on my color in person. The smoked black housing should look pretty awesome. GT500s are looking good, plus they already have the awesome tires on them, without having to pay $250+ a piece. The CAI is simply for the fit, finish, and sound IMO. I know it won't help now, but in the future with a few more bolt-ons, whatever those may be, I can see gains coming from it. I do like my rear view, as I don't even see my trunk at this point. The pedestal wing looks good, but I haven't seen it on Kona Blue yet.

    Smurf? I'm not blue! :p Lol. Yes, definitely in the spring when she comes back out with new modifications. I'm gonna try to save for the GT500 rims. I'm sorry I never got to show you the Orange one...

    Please take lots of pictures of the install! If you write up some threads I'd love to post them as articles on the front page.

    I most certainly can. Some of the install instructions can be found at American Muscle as well, I might add.

    This car is Kona, of course. I meant I never got to show you Orange Crush.

    That would be awesome. Articles and write-ups on these types of common mods are the exact type of thing that will drive more traffic to the site. :thumbup:

    See, I want springs really bad and I could get them now, but I want to wait and do coil-overs instead. This is going to be an autocross/street car.

    All of those mods are excellent choices.
