Exterior upgrade

O I was driving home from work today and a 2011-12 gt pulls up next to me and has the same exterior items as myself, both black, matte black stripes and same louvers. Now that I know another mustang in my area is similar, I need to change and or add something to the exterior; any recommendations?

Re: Exterior upgrade

Chill out Fulton....youll still be the only 3.7....trick yours out better than his...youll be fine. Paint your brakes for a start....duplicolor blue......super close to the grabber

Re: Exterior upgrade

nah...not interested in beating anyone unless they cant do the math on what I have under the hood. If Id wanted power...id have scrounged for the additional 13k for the Boss in my color. But a brand new Stang in a really outlandish color with a cool 305 HP is pretty darn awesome in itself....just saying.
I'm happy......and the V8 folks can just kiss it. Ill be laughing at the gas pumps by December when the price goes back up after the election (in case anyone hasnt figured out why its on the way down....wink, wink, nudge, nudge!)

What year was it? My first mustang was a 2000 v6 and I miss it. It was hard to trade it in, especially cause the dealer only gave me $1500 for it.
