Birthday ideas!

Hey everyone! Got my birthday and Father's Day coming up and the wife is asking what I want, naturally Mustang parts are the only thing on my list! So here is my list....I'm definitely sticking to one or a few of these items. Here are my thoughts on each one too. Let me know what all your thoughts or experiences are with any of these.

1) Raxiom Mustang Fog Light Kit (13-14 V6) - Free Shipping

I always wanted to add the fog lights but always seemed to want something else more.

2) Raxiom Mustang Tail Light Sequencer - Plug-and-Play 301042 (10-15 All) - Free Shipping

I heard of a few experiences with these not working quite right.

3) Raxiom OE-Style Mustang GPS Navigation w/ Bluetooth & Back-up Camera 100300 (10-14 All) - Free Shipping

Always loved the look of this. Just a bit pricey in my eyes.

4) Mustang Red Carbon Fiber Dash Overlay Kit (10-14 All) - Free Shipping

I like the fact that this is new and I haven't seen it on anyone's before but it does look a bit too "rice" to me.

5) Lloyd Black Mustang Floor Mats - Pony Logo 11811 (13-14 All) - Free Shipping

I just think these would be a nice touch for the interior.


I know most this is all personal preference but just curious anyway.
Here is a few pics on what it sits like today. Thanks everyone!

I got the floor mats. I can say, they're very fluffy and will look nice in your car. I have the tribar emblem set because the ones you linked weren't offered at the time.

Fog light kit or raxiom gps kit might be the best choices in my opinion. I like to keep peoples budget in mind when asking for stuff also. So the raxiom gps might be much if everyone is ballin on a budget.

I would go for the GPS and offer to help with the cost.

Funny, your wife asked me the same question the other day when I had to jump out of the bedroom window, apparently you got off work early.

The floor mats and the tail light sequencer would look good on your car. You will have enough time to find some more little things to add by Christmas.

Thanks for your opinions guys. Think the GPS is number one on the list so far, just really think it will help the look of the interior. If I don't get some/any of these this time around then they will make my Christmas list for sure! Lol

Is the vinyl stripes aftermarket? If yes, where did you get them and who put them on?

I actually bought all the stripes from my local dealer here and they have a guy that came there just to work on vinyl and decals for their customers. He was out of the east coast of Florida and would drive the the west coast of Florida once a week or so to do work for them. I know that doesn't help you to much seeing where you live. Lol

Birthday ideas!

So my wife texted me this today and said she already bought me one of these wings for my bday. I promptly told her that I want a divorce! Lol. Then I told her we could put it on her Explorer then.

id love to do the GPS, but paying that price is ridiculous... and I'm way too lazy to run the rear camera!

the fog lights look awesome and everyone is saying it's such an easy install.. but i cant imagine having to run that wire being easy at all. where do you run it to?? I hate wiring stuff.

It's like a one in a million chance. "So your saying there's a chance" - dumb and dumber

You never know so I should at least put it on some sort of list right? Lol

Very true. If it were me, I would say my list composed of Forged Engine internals, full aftermarket suspension, and FI. With my current mods and a few more in the near future, I am about maxed out and burned out. LOL

The Raxiom GPS Setup is very nice though I think you will be extremely happy with that or the fog lights. Fog lights are a very nice exterior add-on.

fogs and/or stand alone GPS. It doesn't look as good but when it gets outdated (which it will) it is easier to deal with and you can take it with you in other cars.

Thanks again for everyone's input. Just wanted to let everyone know that she ended up getting me the Raxiom NAV unit. Best thing is she bought it during the Memorial Day sale plus used the discount, so for just a hair over $600, I think that's a decent price. I can't wait to get this thing installed. Anything I should know about the install? I have done multiple head unit installs and amp/sub installs without issues. This thing looks similar but you never know. Thanks again everyone.

Awesome!! That is on my mod list. But I've just been using my gps over sync for the most part so it's more towards the bottom of priority.

Well I left work a little early today. I couldn't wait to get this unit installed. Overall it took me about 3 hours total. From start to finish. I really took my time and did it right. The longest part was just running the camera wire to the back and drilling a few small holes to mount it. I really love the way this thing looks and like the added backup camera feature. We will see how I like the use of the unit as I use it more down the road but so far so good. Here are a few pics after the install was complete.Click image for larger version
