Opinions on GT front end

Ok, I bought my 2012 GT with a CDC front spoiler on it. I have a GT/CS front fascia, driving lamps, splitter, Raxiom tinted projection headlights and Roush fog light delete grille that I had already purchased for the 2010 I used to have. What do you guys think about the 2 different styles. The first picture is what it currently looks like. The second is what it would look like with the new front end.

Both look good, no license plate is a huge +. for either.
but I still like the fogs but on the car on the right.

Thank you.
I have since removed the front plate and filled the holes with "Bumper Plugs" painted to match.

I updated the current pic.

I like both. I know, not much help 'eh? When I get to appearance mods, those are exactly the two looks I'm trying to decide between myself: Either unpainted CDC chin or GT/CS/Boss front fascia with fogs and Saleen grille..tough call.

I prefer boss/CS if that's not obvious. The cdc is a neat look, but to me it doesn't flow as nicely as the boss/CS.

I agree, the CDC has a neat clean, kind of a retro look. That's why I like it. The GT/CS look is a much more aggressive look.

I went with a CS/Boss fascia without fogs and Saleen upper grille, get lots of compliments. Personally I don't like the look of fog lights at all, even on the CS/Boss fascia. I did shoot some black spray paint in the holes and also a bunch behind the grille because you could see a lot of the white.

I like the rtr chin. I have question for you all. I hit a curb and broke most of the screws off that hold the chin on. Ford wants me to replace my whole bumper. Can't I just drill new holes to hold the chin on?

It's been like Florida here in MD as well. I never officially store my car if there is no salt on the roads I drive it. Winter is fairly short here And you get plenty of mild days.

CDC lip x1000. Looks much meaner, no smiling lower grille like the CS/Boss setup or the GT500 or the 13/14. I don't want my sports car to look happy, I want it looking pissed.

Hahaha! Never looked at it like that! Good thing I'm a happy guy cuz I'd probably have to swap now every time I see it I'm going to think of that! I'll just imagine it's laughing at those left in the dust!


The forecast isn't pretty Rosariors3. They say once the snow does come, it'll be a lot due to Lake Ontario being so warm. As long as I can work on the car, I don't care.

You want me to go one better, the 13/14 GT, the 07-09 GT500 and ESPECIALLY the 10-14 GT500 front looks like a hamburger. Grille openings=bottom and top bun. Once you see it...

Reminds me of the name, Bevilacqua, which is not an uncommon name in my neck of the woods. Which, if the Bevi is removed, sounds like the beginning of my last name. Laqui....
