NEW! 03 mustang gt ideas

Hey guys I new here and am about to get an 03 gt and have some ideas for the car to throw at you. It charcoal grey which I love with the gt chrome rims. I thinking bout taking the rims out and put the 05 mustang rims.. Then get rid of the coral grill around the mustang emblem in front and put the black chrome billet grill on and they have the same piece that goes around the license plate in back.. Get smoked headlights and tail lights.. Put louvers on the side.. Put hood pins in just for show not real. It has magna flow exhaust from the cat.. Call it night shadow or something. What ya think?

Sounds awesome! I would hold back on the hood pins. Im not a fan of them unless they are needed. You would just be wasting money.

Re: NEW! 03 mustang gt ideas

grill is fine as long as its behind the running pony, i like to keep the pony up front, also consider a mach 1 grill delete (I like the look better myself)

PLEASE dont put a tag on the front of your car, it ruins the flow of the car... no idea why ford put a stupid indent on the front bumper of the GT.. thankfully its not on the cobra.

Ive seen those tag things a few times, they look ok but I dont personally care for them but if you like em go for it.

Hood pins, I dont care for as they are not needed on factory hoods and mess with the look to me of the hood

caliper covers are fine, but the cheaper and better alternative would be to clean up and paint the ones you have

you can tint your own tail lights or buy those, it looks good on some color cars, yours being DSG it will look good

smoked headlights are fine but stay OEM (the best looking) all the aftermarket and projector ones look like crap. Also you have to reseal them else moisture is an issue.

the quarter window scoops are ok but the angle where they meet the roof is a 90 degree angle and it messes with the looks

Re: NEW! 03 mustang gt ideas

I would look for pictures that have these items on the same body style stang and see how you can make them match without over kill. As for the 05 rims they're a no no, you'll kill the car. That's just my opinion. Check out American Muscle for accessories.

Good ideas man bit I personally would just keep those rims you have those look good. No quarter window louvers. Get rear window louvers those look Hella tight. And paint your own calipers dude not worth it to buy ones when you can do it for about ten bucks
