Yeah!

Throw out all ideas of wings and bodykits then. Start simple, like with audio upgrades, but if you're into look first I'd go with suspension upgrades to lower your ride.

A Mach 1 chin spoiler always looks good on these bulls.



Centennial headlights, etc etc...

You don't want to look like this?

Factory spoilers also look sharp. Centennial headlights help, though it might depend on your color.

I would start with audio; stereo, speakers, sub if you want, and then tint your windows if you like that look. You just have to estimate how much you really want to send on it, performance is going to be expensive but if you like to go fast then that's the way to go. Hope this helps

i'm already planning on tinting the windows and getting some american racing rims. i want to hook up my system but i don't wanna have to deal with getting another plate for where my stereo will go. still not sure about the system. is there any way i could put like a stang body kit on it like a cobra body kit? i see a lot of ya'lls cars with some performance mods on. my car's color is red. think the mach 1 chin spoiler will look good without my car being lowered?

The mach 1 chin spoiler makes it look almost as if it IS lowered. Like some body kits. As for the cobra kit, fiberglass retrofit? But, that sounds a bit much. For American muscle rims, do they have it in our bolt pattern? Ours are 5-4.25, not 4.5 like many others.

i've looked on tirerack.com and found some rims that'll fit my car. but i am gunna look around at other places to see what they offer and see if i can get the rims cheaper. i'm staying at my stock 16's so that makes it a bit easier for me.
