Best exterior mod?

I was wanting all your opinions on what would be the most noticeable exterior mod.....In terms of making my car look as bad *** as possible, what would the best exterior mod be? I have put a lot of time into my car but it seems to be missing something...thanks!

Already have new headlights, I was thinking a black super snake stripe? What's your opinion on striping? I would order it from american muscle for sure just so I was sure it was the correct sizing and all.

Chinspoilers and a black grille! Chinspoilers on our v6s look great IMO.

I have side stripes I'm waiting to put on my fox when a warm day comes around. I love stripes, they also have those little hash marks

This one I'm not so sure of. Bad placement maybe? It's different for sure.

Would I be able to paint it to match my white though? I don't think a greyish/blackish spoiler would look good hanging off my white bumper. I want to also paint the side (almost skirts) white as well so that would probably be a good idea to do both....thanks!

What is your opinion ok the installation though? That's my biggest issue...I'd hate to order a $100+ striping kit and then have bubbles in it. :/

The kits would usually come with a tool to push out bubbles. But if your dishing out for something as expensive as some stripes can get I would go to a buddy or someone who without a doubt has experience and knows what there doing,that's what I'll be doing. Haha

Money is no object if that's what it takes to do any mod the right way. Haha I have also thought about lowering springs here in the next few months....have you seen those on a car before? They won't be very noticeable from far away but when I'm parked next to another 06 it will be very noticeable in my opinion.

My high school parking lot is full of lowered cars. Couple mustangs included, sucks when comes time for speed bumps though...or my driveway

Rims make the car, and before you do anything, big wide rims and tires then lower it

I agree on the Rims, and Chin Spoiler. I did a "Staggered" setup on mine. And I want to add a Chin Spoiler, probably CDC. Staggered means Wheels are wider in the rear, than the fronts. But that also means that you can't "rotate" your tires. Check out my pics in Garage.

I'm looking into a chin spoiler. I'm only interested in one if I can paint it to match my white stang. I don't want some black thing hanging off the front of my car if I can avoid it. It snowed yesterday where I live and today is when all the salt and dirt mix with the snow so my car will be dirty but I'll upload some pics later and that may help your opinions on what would look best and such.

If you have the money, HOOD, it is the first thing people see on your car and what people see in the rear view mirror. Second, wheels, the right wheels an stance on a car totally change the whole profile.

Crap? Really? I think it looks pimp! Wheels are not my priority. It'll be a while before I get wheels. Aero, suspension, performance then wheels. Imo.
