Re: mods..

VHT tint on your front markers and rear side markers? If you use VHT on the pony it will give it a black chrome look.

New car jack so when you get a flat it doesn't take a year to raise your car up.

I've got that lighting in my bullitt. I usually keep it off though or keep it real dim. It can be distracting while driving.

Re: mods..

Yah I'd say auto care/maintenance products. I believe they carry Meguiars and Mothers, those are decent brands that you can buy at stores.

Unless you're into furry dice and steering wheels, I'm sure they have some of that stuff too

PATS wont go off if someone breaks out your window. It only helps it they try to start it. Alarms now have pagers shock sensors motion sensor ect. Factory alarms are a joke

Passive anti theft system. Basically your key needs to have a chip in it that matches a frequency in a transistor by your ignition slot. If it doesnt match the computer cuts fuel and wont allow the car to run

It came with the car. It's fords ambient lighting kit. I just googled it and runs about $230 for front foot wells and center council cup holders. Mine has rear foot wells too but that probably requires a special council.

I can't tell from your icon what color your car/stripes/interior are. Mine is legend lime with black stripes and interior. I went for purple lighting because it went well with the green. I was afraid the green lights would be too different a green from the lime and look clashy... The purple looks amazing though.

But yours looks like in might be silver/ grey... In which case almost anything would look good.

Re: mods..

lol @ this thread

How about instead of buying 20 small mods...save up and buy one big mod that actually does something. Nothing like pissing hundreds of dollars away.
