Sweet!
There are thousands of options to fit every taste and style, with the Mustang being the most customizable muscle car on the market, you can make it your dream machine
You can start with americanmuscle.com for some ideas, there are numerous other online sites with great products as well. There's also many DIY applications you can do to give that truly unique custom look. Have fun!

Ah, welcome! Are you thinking about lowering it? A 1.5/2 inch drop would look sweet!

American Muscle is probably the most respected site to go to!.. But there are others too!.. Just be very careful as some may try to rip you off!.. Especially if they know your only 16!!!.... But as far as customizing and all!.. You picked the perfect car as there is almost nothing you can't customize on it!..

Thats what ive heard as to style, its the most flexible, and yes i think i might lower it, and buy some nice rims(black) and replace the lights inside as red. And American muscle was a great site! Thanks!

Alright so, so far, interior lighting and push button start is the only things actually interesting me, i dont do much racing, so im not as concerned with how fast it goes. But I liked cj's pony parts! Thanks Again! You guys know your stuff.

You can order a 3 inch carbon fiber antenna like I did, (they also come in red CF) your signal goesnt change at all, and its the smallest available for our generation. If you don't want that you can take it out and plug something into it so water won't get in. I know, the antenna on our cars is literally a mast.

No it just screws off. Now that I think about it you can just screw it off and be fine because thats what they do at car washes

Really??
I have none! How tall are you? I'm only 5'7 and I can see out both of my quarter windows and have the mirrors pushed out all the way so I can see my full flank, never had a problem.

Maybe
For the left you should be able to push your mirror out all the way and be fine I usually don't check it unless merging.
I still check the right because of.my louvers, just in case!

Sorry if I sound weird I haven't slept for over 24 hours lol
