Need some suggestions

I want to do something to the front of the car. Something that makes it look more aggressive. The car looks pretty aggressive right now with the tint, louvers and wheels. Planning on adding a GT500 rear spoiler and maybe some sort of rear valance.

As to the front end though, I can't decide. Thought about a black billet upper and lower grille, but I want to retain the fog lights. I like them, they speak retro Mustang. I like the 3d carbon chin spoiler, but I also like the boss 302 one too. Need some opinions, what would you do?

As far as retaining the fog lights have you considered the Elleanor style grille? As far as the Boss 303 chin spoiler, you would need the Boss 302 front valance, I think.

I think the Roush splitter is what's popular with the 13-14s

Yeah I'd get a roush splitter for sure. I also love the CDC open grille that basically is the GT500 grille. Granted you lose the fog lights, but that huge open grille is sweet looking IMO.

I've been wondering the same thing for my '14. I think I'm going with the RTR chin spoiler. They had a red RTR Mustang in the showroom when I got my car - that thing was pretty sharp.

I think the mustangs always look more fierce without the fogs in the grill. That is just an opinion though. The CDC open grill for your year is badass.

I know it isn't the same year, but this is kind of a Boss 302 and California Special mixed front end.

I think she looks mean. Specially with blacked out headlights.

I agree, I'd like to ditch the grill fogs in the near future.

The grill fogs take me back to childhood, but they could have been just a little smaller.

Yeah if you like the old mustang look definitely. I like that look on the old stangs but these new ones not so much.

I agree they are way to big.

The more I look at the CDC grille, the more I like it. Paired with the RTR Chin spoiler painted to match, might look pretty mean. Hmmm

Yessir I say do it. You can also paint your radiator too so it doesn't show so much and really gives you a blacked out look.

Not a big fan of the Roush splitter at all. Pictures make it look great, which is why i ended up ordering one from AM. Once i saw it in person, and held it up to my car i immediately had second thoughts and returned it. Def not worth the $200 IMO. it just looks a little on the cheap side to me (hence the low price tag compared to other options). Not to mention you have to alter the stock splitter, so you wont be able to switch back if you change your mind, or lower the vehicle.
My car looks identical to yours right now, and my plans for the front end are the Roush upper and lower grills, and the CS lower fog light kit. I love that look personally.

I was debating which splitter to suggest to be honest lol but I think with the grille and that RTR painted splitter your Stang will look pretty fricken awesome.

What is the difference between the gtcs grilles And the Roush ones? They look very similar.

the metal bar grills? The roush is "higher" quality. I actually have the generic AM one they sell for like 150ish? Paint job was OK on it, with some missing spots. Think I might sand it down and repaint it a darker color honestly. It is "black" but not so much.

Actually, I didn't look to see if the 13s have a generic grill from AM. I also have not recently seen an actual CS grill from Ford to tell how good the quality is.

Yeah. I haven't compared any other grilles other than mine so I can't comment on how the quality compares to others. Maybe ill go find a Roush and check it out.
