Grille is the black CS special upper and lower. Tint is Madico (sp?) 35% on driver/pass window, 20% on the rear glass and little windows. Rims are 19" AMR's.

Honestly. I have been having a hard time picking a spoiler. I'm not in any rush and want to see more stangs in person to see how they all look. I like the GT500 and the CS special type, but also the subtle stock GT one as well.

Charcoal gray AMR's 19in. I'm on stock springs...for now.

jmackinn01,
I do like the GT500, is that one you have the 3Dcarbon or OEM one?

I have the OEM GT500 spoiler. I got a good deal on it off of craigslist unpainted so I chose to pay a little more to get it painted and have an OEM part.

I have the Dynomax catback on my car now so those tips are actually small in size but they stick out way too far!!!. They are 3" or 3.5" tips which i think is too small for our cars. I have a set of flowmaster 4" tips going on with my new mufflers soon.

Looks really good! The grill makes a big difference compared to the OEM honey comb look, and I also got the front windows at 35% and everything else 20 with the GT 500 spoiler.

Damn, I'm surprised. The stock springs don't look too bad. Makes me feel better being that I'm going to have to run stock springs for at least a month or two before I can get the suspension mods I want. I was afraid it would be really offroad-ish.

Your post about getting your car tinted is what made me get mine. That % combo is working awesome. Now that its getting warmer here I notice my car stays cooler.

In regards to the springs, the black stangs tend to hide the wheel gap better then other colors. The tires kind of blend into the body. Especially if you get gloss black rims. Trust me, the gap is still there. LOL

Did you install the tint yourself, or did you get it done somewhere, and how much did that run you? I REALLY want tint on my car to complete the blackout look but I thought being quoted $450 for 25% on all six windows was too much IMO.

That is ridiculous mine was only 220 and I got very high quality tint. Go find someone else

I paid 220 for the 5 windows. It's not something I personally would try myself. The grille was easy once I figured out how hard to pull to get the stock one out. The new one pops right in.

Hey, I'm not sure if you can help me with a question I have about your grille. I just bought a grille exactly like yours and when the mechanic went to install it he said it wouldn't fit and it was only to overlay... But I wanted to completely replace it and it doesn't have the pony cut out so I'm assuming I bought the right one! If this is the right grilleClick image for larger version

My tint only cost me $150 from a very reputable shop next to my job. I got 20% all the way around. It even included a lifetime warranty, if it starts to peel he will fix it for free.

That is the wrong grille. I'll post the correct one tonight.

It appears that the section of the grille with the pony logo is up side down. Without taking dimensions it's hard to tell otherwise. Have you tried holding it up against you current grille?

The picture of the grille is upside down I realize that however that isn't the issue. Lol the billet grille sits on top of the pre existing honey comb grille and the honey comb grille is visible in the background also the bolts don't line up properly. The grille is supposed to go in without the honey comb in the back.. Can anyone potentially suggest where to purchase a billet grille for a 2013 mustang 6 cylinder because might be that the place I bought it from is just ordering the wrong thing

Ok, so for us V6 owners you need the grille and surround (from a GT) to make that style grille work.

You need: Ford Mustang Grille - California Special - Upper (Part No: DR3Z-8200-CC)

and for the lower grille:

Ford Mustang Grille - California Special - Lower (Part No: DR3Z-8200-EA)

This is exactly what I have in my pictures above. The old grille pops out with some force, then you simply pop this one in its place. Unlike the stock grille, this grille is a one piece unit with the GT surround permanently attached.
