Exterior mod input please

As some of you might know I can't leave my cars alone. In the guy who can't stay stock and mist be different from everyone else. I show my cars all over Texas and try to make them stand out.
I am having a problem deciding which way to go with my 2011 California special. If it was your car and you had $5000 to spend what would you do? (hood, cobra front end, paint, wrap....ect).

I can't believe that no one wants to help me spend my money, well on my car. I would supercharge it but I promised the wife I would get over 20000 miles on it first.

Re: Exterior mod input please

If I had that $ -and was interested in modifying the exterior-I would be the 'first owner'-to install Cervini's 10-11 Tail Light Conversion kit , 1399.00, to give the a$$ end of the new car(s) a proper rear view/styling look www.cervinis.com Or-a Ducktail Wing, for 299.00, instead? Lower Side Scoops, painted-to-match for 179.00, and accompanying Window Scoops for 199.00.. That ought to getcha "started".. !

Hell yeah! I've been looking at that for a while, I think that would be sick! Might as well throw their front end on it too. I was thinking about going that route and leaving the exhaust out the rear.

The windows are tinted, I went legal so I don't have problems during inspection. Thats my buddies Raptor, he's letting me drive it while he is in Afghanistan. It is lowered. I was thinking of putting a cobra front end on the car?

Re: Exterior mod input please

first you need to decide whats best bang for the buck, what will change the looks of the car the most.

I would first get the suspension right, lowering the car (for what ever wheels you are going to run so the setup works together)

The wheels/tires are next... you can buy the same as everyone else or you can be a little different. For a bit more money you can get much more custom rims so consider a custom rim instead of "shelby" or some other crap you see on every other car out there.

That would be where I would start as its going to give you the most drastic change overall on the car. custom wheels will range from 2500+ depending on how big and what finish you go with. DO NOT GO POLISHED without clear coating it unless its only a non rain driven car.

The next would be the front/rear/side skirts not sure on that other than maybe a GT500 front end conversion which looks really good but thats costly.
