Thumbs up Fixing up my 2015 Mustang

I own a 2015 ecoboost mustang that is gaurd grey. I everything about the car, but every where I go I see other people driving 2015 mustangs. I am looking to fix up my car to make it stand out amongst the others. I am thinking about painting pin stripes and getting new rims along with tint. Do you guys have anything that you would recommend me fixing up to make my car look better? Ex: Spoiler, lights, brakes, grill etc.

You need to paint the calipers. You need a spoiler. Airbrush work

I think your car is Guard Metallic.....the grey color is called Magnetic Metallic......but there is a noticeable grey tendency to the Guard color too.
As far as dressing yours up......and you did ask for an opinion......I don't think black wheels do our color any favors. I would start with some wheels that have more definition to the spokes and rims. Pay attention to the weight of any custom wheels compared to the stock ones, as unsprung weight can really throw a monkey wrench into the handling, acceleration, braking and mpg for your car.
Our roads here are so bad, that I wanted the standard suspension, and although these are "only" 18's, you can see, I think that they "pop" more than the solid black ones without being flashy CHROME!:

First off sweet car! Also thanks for correcting me on the color. As far as my rims I had the base model rims on and I decided to plasti-dip them my self for a temporary fix until I was ready to actually buy rims. So I get what you are saying about the spokes, but I am still thinking black rims are the way to go. I attached a picture of what I think I am going to do to my car. None the less thanks for your help!

Gold rims and trim actually looks really good on the guard colored mustangs

If you have to do stripes, those look pretty good. One of the reasons I like our Guard 5.0 is that it flies "under the radar" and looks really classy to me.
Of course, your tastes and mine are only separated by probably 40 years or so.......so understandable that we look at our cars differently.....

You'll probably get more input if your question was in the 2015 section vs the pre 2005 area of the forum... Pretty car though!

A set of aftermarket WHEELS ("rim" is the outer portion of the wheel where the tire mounts) is a good starting point to get your car to stand out. I do like how the silver stands out and accents the Guard paint color.

One cheap simple mod that adds a little cool factor imo is switchback turn signals for the front.

There is so much you can do it would take pages to fill. Maybe start with new wheels, stripes etc.

Have you considered vinyl racing stripes?

Rims, Tint windows and lights and side markers, GT350 spoiler is cool if they have that out for aftermarket yet. Maybe "mean out" the grille like RTR or something. LOVE the idea of a flat black stripe down middle like one pic. One thing, not looks, I loved on a recent eco I saw was the upgraded BOV. Love that sound...
