I too can't decide this for the life of me! Except I don't want the CS lower front fascia.

Smoked fogs would be cheaper. But I was thinking the cs grill not many good chin spoilers for regular gts I like the race style boss chin . Or the rtr so idk 200 bucks for Saleen grill or 30 for tint

Yes it's hard to get away from the iconic upper GT fog lights but the Saleen can be so aggressive. Silver has a point tinting them would be great but I prefer smoked housings for a more professional [factory] look.

OP do you already have the CS lower chin or no?

One moment man, I've got TONS of pics of the Saleen grille with regular GT chin, I'll post them up in a second. Maybe it'll help with your decision bc I'm in the same boat.

On the plus side if you can't decide via looks, if you're looking to squeeze as much power as you can the grille appears to flow much better and you'll lose a few pounds from the GT grille and fogs being gone.

See that setup is so common. I kind of want to stick with the stock GT look but touch it up a little.

Saleen grill looks like a base v6 to me. Maybe a better way to save some cash?!

I like the eleanor grill. With the fogs in the center. I don't like the saleen grill. I dont have the saleen package so I'm not going add parts like I do. I have a tint on my fogs now an when I have some extra play cash I'm getting the eleanor grill. Just my two cents.

Yellow Tint or smoke? I always loved yellow fogs on late 60s early 70s muscle cars.

Did some very quick and dirty photoshop via pixlr.com and took images from a thread on these boards, credit to him.

I have factory HIDs and the factory blacked out pony so I made those for myself.

Make sure you get proper smoked tint and not cheap window tint with that nasty brown tint to it

At first glance tinted lights looks the meanest, but then I turned up my brightness and saw the honeycomb part of the Ford grille. So I've determined the Saleen grille looks the most aggressive but only slightly more over the honeycomb (with tinted fogs).
