Color-changing Halos or Vossen Wheels?

Since I decided Vossen CV3s over Cams, I'm now in a pickle between Colored halos $550 or Vossen CV3s $2000

Which do you think would look the best on Laquisha?

If I get the CV3s I'll most likely be sitting on 19x9.5 255/40/19 and some fat radials 20x10.5 315/30/20





So which do think?

Wheels.

But that's because I personally dislike the colored halos concept.

Then, ship me your old wheels.

How much you down to take them for? I might sell them to Rapinator or a local speed shop.

yea you already got the rims. I say colored halos. Add's a nice touch. Does it have a selectable color? or do you just pick one?

RTR decklid $239.99 on AM, don't know if they are still selling them I believe RTR made only a certain amount. I saw someone here is selling their's idk if the person sold it already. FYI you'll have to cut the hump, once you do that no returning back.

License plate surround $229.99 on AM (not sure if you have to do any cutting)

As for your question. I would go with the Vossens

Vic14, even though you're cutting the hump... I think it's still very easy to go back if you own a 13-14 Mustang. When I removed my stock panel, I noticed that the hump really served no purpose as the emblem was in no way attached to it or being held by it. That leads me to believe that the 12 (i think it was 12) clips on the panel should do the job if you ever wanted to return to stock.

That's just my opinion from my install. I feel like that hump doesn't provide anything in terms of being able to have the original panel on there.

Again, this would only apply to 2013-2014 model

I got a 2014. If one can indeed return back to stock for whatever reason I might as well get the RTR decklid. But do you know if someone is selling these? AM, RTR, etc? Cause I know they made a limited batch when they announced it a couple months ago.

^^ it has the rtr logo but I believe its removable (unless its just a sticker that you decide if to put it on) Die should be able to confirm that

Attached a picture of it installed on my car. It did have a small RTR sticker in the bottom right corner. Easily removed. The sticker peeled right off and the residue from the glue was very easy to wipe off.

As for the second picture, it's a little dark but that's the back of the stock decklid panel. The RED circle are the clips and the WHITE circles are the 2 screws that hold your decklid panel to your car. Those 3 pin looking things you see in the middle where the faux gas cap is don't serve any purpose. They weren't clipped or anything to the hump, they were simply threaded through a hole in the hump. They didn't actually do anything to secure that middle area to the car.

As you can also see, the back of the panel with the clips is one large piece of plastic. So even without the hump, there's 0% chance of your faux gas cap being pushed in (proving the point of the hump not being needed to support the panel).

That's just my observations. So, my opinion is... cutting off the hump has absolutely no impact on being able to go back to stock.

How do you even cut it? What if you mess up cutting it? With a hack saw or what?

I like the halos. Done right they can look nasty. Like Jeff Scofield's 2014 GT500 with all his lighting accents (he also has 1,000+ horsepower to back it up). But those are much cheaper than the wheels, so i would do the wheels first. Because if you start spending money on little things you will keep putting the lights off until its been years (i did this with my mirrors and side skirts i still need to paint lol).

Drill a hole, carefully, on the edge of the hump as your starting point. Then saw that ***** off with a dremel tool. There's enough space between the hump and the inner trunk layer that you shouldn't mess up. Otherwise, remove decklid panel, go to body shop, ask them to saw it off quickly for you, go home and install the panel.
