Headlight splitter and hood pin appearance

Just added headlight splitters and hood pin appearance from AM. Debating if I should add the chain and clasp or leave it as it is?

I'd say leave em off (Clasp & cables). I honestly don't like the appearance hood pins but I get it. You get that attention of a modified ride without drilling holes in your hood.
The splitters... eh, not my cup of tea either.

What other mods do you plan on doing to your ride? Maybe I can find something supportive to say instead of being a negative nelly over here.

Agree with primer, but I love the grille and ghost stripes. I guess it's too late to talk about a custom hood

It's never too late to talk hoods!

I'm on the fence about the chain and clasp. The way I see it, the main part is already there, why not complete it? Might look more "faux" without it.

What grille is that BTW?

"MustangDUB" sorry, I to have to jump on the bandwagon with "primer2tone", before I get into the Negs, let me say, I too was on the fence about getting those items on mine, but changed my thoughts on it. I don't think it looks good on your car, I think your car looked better without those add-ons. Your Hood and Front End looks Bad@$$ without those.

Thanks, my car was the Dub edition model which has a Roush body kit and front facia. Exterior I have side louvers and rear window louvers. I don't plan on doing much more and I am on the fence for side scoops.

Are you going to or have you done anything under the hood? I know these cars are already fast but there's always room for improvement.

I like the hood pins appearance and the splitters are... Alright. but I think the strip with that hood looks amazing!

And like primer said room for Improvement is always a good thing!

Of course.. I put the roush axel back for now.. Deep tone at low Rpms but it la high pitch past 3000 .. It's what you get for a V6 right. My dealership isn't very MOD friendly I can wait! I know modding cars is like getting tattoos and you get addicted. I'll enjoy what I have in the exterior for now and maybe improving the interior for the time being. Anyone can recommend an aftermarket head unit?

I've been considering the Appradio 2, but the total cost is making me keep my distance. Looking at upwards of $900 and there are other places on the car that I'd rather put that much cash.

What's your rear gear ratio? That'll add some fun...aside from dealership. Of liking mods.

That does look better, but my opinion on those, still stands.
