Head lights, fog lights, HID, grill, tail lights, that's all I did when I first got mine.

So not put HIDs in the stock housings. It is one of the most moronic thing you can do to the car

If you want a sleek look then I'd vote for front lip, mach 1 grill delete, lowered like 2 inches, and a good set of wheels. Simple and cheap

The best appearance mod from my experience is keeping the car clean and buffing scratches helps the car look spotless and new, but also replacing stock foggy headlights, fog lights, and taillights, sequential tail lights, cobra mirrors, grill delete, front end lip, a good pair of hids or leds, dark tint (10%), lowered 2-1.75inches, spoiler delete, emblem delete the rear deck lid plug in holes with black Pop-in-tabs, and staggered wheels.

He should make it look like the one I just sold lol. 94-98 cars need a LOT to look good. That 98 is probably the second or third best looking 94-98 car I've ever seen (behind Dalamar) and I'm not trying to toot my own horn.


If I ever get another 94-98 (it would be 94/95) body style I'd probably go ABC Cobra front bumper, Tiger Racing T1 wing, side pipes, DEPO projectors again, 96-98 Cobra hood, sequential tails, lowered and a nice set of wheels/tires.


But I probably will not own another 04-down car because of the goddamn 4 link suspension rearend. Its like someone at Ford was trying to make the *** end of the car feel like a wet noodle around corners and launching.

The red gt is probably the best looking in that group by far. Need it to look Nice and clean, no clutter. Lowered, staggered wheels, Nice clear headlights of some sort, chin spoiler. Start there. No stick on anything lol!

Don't the "stick on" things that ford put on these back in the day have a tendency to fly off some times already?

Not many show cars are race cars. But all race cars are show cars

Some cars I can see the need. Believe it or not on Lamborghini's they aren't just for looks. If you look at how super long the door is try getting out of the car if something is next to you. When they swing up it makes it easier to get out.

But when you see it on civics and other cheap cars it's just stupid.

Regardless the one is a stick on. The other is a shaker but that is a $$$$ mod for 0 performance. Dude could have done a real nice Kaenan hood or whatever for way less. The only 94-98 cars that come with a motor that does not suck powerwise are the Cobras. Hopefully that dude has something to make the red car run better than a 14... The lambo doors... Turn in Mustang card.

As far as soccer's posts... Pffft everyone knows SN95 cars can't handle! Riiiiiiiceee!!!!!

IMO, don't go crazy with appearance mods. Slap on some nice wheels with wide tires in the back, lower if you want, and the most extreme thing I would do is a nice paint job (something you don't see everyday, nothing crazy). After that, just keep it clean. Factory immaculate.

Most sn95s on the road today are in pretty rough shape. A truely clean one is pretty rare.

Agreed about a clean 94-98 standing out. Why I liked my blue one. Too many 94-98s owned by boy racers who rice them out and think since they have a V8 they can beat anything. And then lose to a Mazda 6...

IMO, 94-98 cars need a Cobra or ABC Cobra bumper, lowering, wheels and a wing delete or a S281 wing (unless a 94/95 Cobra, then you keep the Crabclaw). They don't need that much but they aren't as easy as a 99-04 car.

I do agree with Speed Mister's post. You can have all these cool mods, but if your paint looks like crap then you will hate it, believe me. Keep up with it, wash the car regularly, wax it regularly. Even when its dirty it should still have a nice gloss to it. Or you can leave it sit and get a dull finish and look like junk.

I'm ok with the gt bumper. Spoiler too actually. Not saying the others look bad, just not so much better I'm willing to spend money. Lol
