Appearance mods advice

I recently bought a completely stock appearance wise 07 gt. I'm getting my windows tinted next week. But what should I have done? Grilles? Louvers? Chin spoilers? Deck lid panels? And anything I can do to dress up the interior as well. Thanks!

Front bumper needs a complete replace IMO, the 05-09 front bumper looks like ****. Ducktail on the rear, cowl hood, 19" rims, lowered and louvers. I personally think the 05-09 is the ugliest Mustang since the Mustang II in stock trim. Even the Fox has a certain charm to it... However, with the right aftermarket parts, the 05-09 can really clean up well and look good.

I don't think they are bad looking I think each much mustang can clean up well and I actually like the way fox bodies look! But thanks !

Really exterior stuff is all going to be a matter of opinion. Different people like different things. You just have to search and see what you like the best. The biggest improvement in exterior that I made were the roush front bumper lowering the car and some wheels. Even that is just my opinion though. Others may say they don't like those changes. Just look around see what you like and make your car to your liking. At the end of the day your the only one that has to drive it and look at it or even cares what your car looks like

Louvers and spoiler are my favorites on all since 2000. After that Rims and lower make a big difference. As guy said though. Everything is personal preference

Wheels will make the biggest appearance difference at first glance, but louvers and spoilers will obviously be a bit more cost effective if you're looking to ease your way into it.

Appearance mods advice

Does anyone here have any experience with a carbon fiber dress up kit!? I think it looks really cool! Or if not something I can do to make my interior a little more unique. thanks also for the input I like the way my wheels look I'm just going to have them powder coated black.

Exactly my thoughts. The interior is kinda boring stock. You've gotta love Plastidip. The only difficult part was the passenger dash...it doesn't come off easy lol.

Just swap to an OEM black IMO. That's what I did on my 98. I do have to paint my 01 console since you can't get the 01-04 style in the right shade for a 94-98 car but I will be using SEM dye with the correct cleaning procedure/adhesive promotor/clear. I've seen way too many interiors not done right that look good at first and then look like **** a month or two later because it was not done properly with high quality dye. I've also seen plenty of interiors that just looked like **** because it was a **** job originally lol. That red plasti dip looks like it came out good though. I wonder how that would hold up over a long period of time?

Plasti dip is good stuff! I had my wheels done on my jeep and it lasted 6 months with hard off-roading. I think it would hold up really well like that but I guess I will have to find out.!
