I want to do the boss 302 grill with fog light kit, but when I selected that option it just adds the price of the grill to the kit. You would think it would subtract out the cost of the stock GT grill and add in the cost of the 302 grill...LOL

And if you go this route, don't forget the adjustable pan hard bar.

No they're gloss black from the factory. Part of the FP6 appearance package.

Oh the ever on going question. Well I promised myself that I would live with my 2014 V6 Premium Convertible in Ruby Red car for a year before i started making changes to get a good feel for what I wanted to do. I Looked at all the post, and cars to get a feel for what i thought would look best. I feel that a lot of people should do this too instead of just jumping into instant mods that just look WRONG!!! With that being said it has now been a year and I'm just starting to make my purchases. CAI, AM Styling Bar, Pedestal Spoiler, MCA Upper and Lower Grille to start. Lowering Springs and Panhard bar come later this year. I Bought the Roush exhaust but that thing in a Convertible was just to DAMN LOUD and DRONED too much for a convertible so I went back to stock and am extremely content with that and will most likely keep it that way. Its a Convertible so its about style not necessarily about performance. With this being said and after looking at you car I would recommend this for you and again this is just IMHO

1. New Rims!!! Those 17 inch stock rims you have are an embarrassment to mustangs and should never have been an option. Get some nice 19 inch Charcoal Grey AMD's from AM and that will look SWEET on your car!!!
2. 1.5 inch Lowering springs and panhard bar(Cheap parts expensive install so you can always move this down to a later project like im doing).
3. Spoiler. GT/CS/Boss Pedestal or GT500 its all a personal preference. I have the Pedestal that i got from Spoiler.com Painted in Ruby Red and delivered for $200 and it looks SWEET IMO
4. Style Bar. American Muscle for $279 or you can get the Really Sweet one from Cervini Painted to match your car but they run about $580. Install is really easy and you do not have to take out the back seats just pull the speaker covers back. Took me about 1 hour start to finish.
5. Stripes..your color car looks best with either Matte Black or Matte Silver. Im not a fan of them but from reading this post you are so now that your spoiler is installed go for it.
Start with that then save some more money up and come back with your then current mods and ask the next question , Now where do I go and give an Idea of where you want to go from there. In the mean time start saving, ordering, and installing. Cant wait to see the results.

This post is from May 2014...
I've since done a whole mess of stuff. I will commend you for using the search feature though.

Edit* The Panhard bar and LCAS and springs are probably the easiest things to install on your car. No need to pay someone to do it.

You have a CAI as is. Unless you want a little noise, use those dollars elsewhere. As for mufflers, I picked up a pair of <200 mile GT mufflers off local Craigslist for $50. $40 to install. I have a 14 SGM Vert auto trans. Quiet cruise, but a little better than stock on acceleration

Valance fog lights can be a useful addition if you shop wisely & do the work yourself.

I have a black 2012 premium vert. I've added Borla Touring axle backs and recently a set of AM Bullitt wheels in silver. They really set the car off. Best of all they were on sale for under $200 for the set. Click image for larger version

Tints are one of the first upgrades I've always done to all of my cars. In Illinois, we can only have 35% all around, so I try to keep mine legal.

I also like to change the interior and license plate bulbs to LED (assuming the car didn't come with them).

Might I suggest getting the California special spoiler. I've seen them on coupes and verts but honestly they look better on convertibles.
