Here's an example of one of a few different types you can find for the interior:

Stock Ford Factory Interior Ambient Color Colors Light Kit LED | eBay

As far as under the car - leave that one alone. Not on a Mustang.

@sid719e Do you know how hard is to instal kits like this, it that something that is do at home or i need to go to shop to do it?

For under the car i kinda agree but that boy in me from 20 years ago really wanted to have those on the car and you cant blame a 12 year old kid for souch thing

I agree, don't put underglow on. You'll get lolled at from everyone.

I personally think its all kinda rice but the interior doesn't look bad if you do it correctly, a few guys on here have done it with cheap ebay LED strips and it looks OEM except it doesn't change colors.

Underglow... that will get you laughed at, you'll show up on the Ricecop and an actual cop might even pull you over as I believe its illegal in most states.

It'll still earn you a ricecop ticket and the ridicule of the rest of the Mustang community.

Hey I wanted an underglow kit too back in 2001 when I was young and FATF was out etc... I think a LOT of us used to want things for our cars that we now consider "rice". I was 19 and thought it was the coolest thing ever. That lasted all of 6 months lol.

yeah, but you see you made your wish come threw, i didn't had that opportunity, not even to own a Mustang because if 5 years ago before coming to us price of Mustang in Croatia was double what was here, even now a 2015 GT from a dealership to road is around $66k
you can see prices in HRK (conversation is 1USD=7HRK) here:
