...use that money elsewhere? Really love the look but not sure if I should go for some other mods first such as suspension, tuner and maybe gears? Just looking to hear some opinions before pulling the trigger..

Lowering a car can make a huge difference in the look with just stock body and you wouldn't want to drop it too much without the new bumper on first so you don't scrape the s*** out of it on every bump lol. It's up to you cause the front facia can change the entire look of a car quickly. Up to you and your preference on looks or ride comfortability first

Nevermind all haha. Couldn't wait. Just going with the regular gt front w/o the cs valence, saleen grille, cdc rear decklid, 8000k hid's, and get all my lights painted. Should be done or just about done with all my cosmetic stuff then (get it out of the way) so I can start saving for the fun performance stuff. Tuner, gears, eibach sportline suspension and a little upgrade w/ my exhaust will be next. Hope to get all that done within a month or so..

I've got eibach pro-kit springs now but theres still a bit of a gap that i don't like with my 18inch saleens. Will be going with sportlines soon when i get the funds.

Haha! All my mods have been from my deployment money and now I got my tax money in. My dad owes me about $2000 which is where my performance mods will come in. As soon as he pays me lol. After that I probably won't be doing much, just slowly saving for the supercharger I guess. But yes, upgrading is all the fun! Actually trying to get on another deployment. If so, hello procharger!

Re: Convert to GT/CS front or..?

you an probably do a cheaper version if you can find someone local with a GT front bumper for sale in your color, then buy the boss add on or cs add on for the bottom~

I almost told you about that site but then someone else told you about the roush takeoffs (I think) and it was way cheaper. We're they out of stock there?

Also the CDC deck lid you were talking about, that is blackout panel? Or spoiler?

+1 you have a very tastefully modded car. Tbh I would do the wheels a little differently but the Saleens look good and it is your car not mine lol.

Not to take away from the rest of the car, the total package is BA!!

Btw, can't go wrong with the GT front bumper and CS lower fascia, it's a great look

Great minds think alike! I'm about to redo my front end also. Gt bumper, boss/cs valence, and Saleen grille. The bumper is a bummer tho I was all excited to get it for 200$ on rousch performance but then realized its another 200 for shipping but oh well, can't seem to find it anywhere cheaper. Haven't ordered the parts yet but I'll hopefully have it complete within 2 weeks. As always I'll be posting pics as well!

Haha nice man!! I'm gonna wait on the cs valence for now rather spend that money on a tuner for now. But it should look great! And $200 shipping? for me it was going to be $100 but they we're out of stock. newtakeoff has them $400shipped. Haven't been able to find much better then that. Can't wait to see yours when it's done!

Roush charges 200 for the bumper and another 200 for shipping, at least for me, I'm in jersey. And yea I've seen them on new takeoff.com for $400 shipped so it doesn't make a difference where I get it from. I'll get the valence w/o fog lights from American muscle. I want the fog lights but they are a whole other (and expensive) story for a v6 that doesn't have stock fogs but I'll definitely be saving up for them
