New headlights or rims?

Should I get the halo lights to match my fog lights or buy Saleen rims?

How is that even comparable? Rims 1000+ dollars and those headlights are 200< dollars but I vote rims

Agreed, you can even compare the two, unless you're getting used beat up rims off craigslist.

GPB,
What do you mean they don't match? As in match size? Or match what?!

Like the raxiom halos don't match the gt style v6 grille halos, they use two different kinds of LED's the raxiom ones use one single LED strand and the grille use 4 separate LEDs.

So the cop is looking backwards in his mirrors and not paying attention while he's driving running of a old woman in a walker. Cops r trained in michigan to follow cars to pull ppl over not get in front of them and look backwards. Its juz a scame to take r money and make r cars look dumb

Lol I guess. One of the kids put a Roush bumper on his car. And he asked me what muffler he should get to make his car sound like a ricer.

You just don't do that! Mustangs aren't meant to sound like ricers! Especially with a roush body kit
