Just my opinions here, chime in with what you think is ricey on mustangs...

And granted I have thought of doing some of these things and then backed off the ideas...

1. "Euro" (implying european) tail lights on a domestic mustang

2. Neon underbody lights

3. Double decker WINGS

4. carbon fiber anything

5. Projector headlights

This is just my opinions of things I think some mustang owners got these ideas from our often times "loathed" honda counterparts...

Remember if you have any of these things don't get mad, this is just my opinion. And all that matters is that you are happy with your stang and how it's progressing

The MUSTANG has a LONG and proud muscle car heritage, and granted it seemed like ford may have dropped the ball every now and again but we as mustang owners should always be proud of our STANG...

YOU KNOW THE FEELING you get when you get out of your car somewhere and you look back like 20 times...just to see the stance, the aggressive nature of the mustang legacy...I hope I'm not the only one that does this...even my girlfriend laughs at ,me because I always look back so much....!!! :hug

And like everyone else I have a vision for my stang..granted on mine the rims were chrome but the owner before me screwed them up and powder coated them white...kind've ricey I thought at first, but it grew on me...so if someone else perceives it as ricey oh well...I'm happy with it for now UNTIL i get the money for DEEP DISH CHROME BULLITS!!!

take care and lets make this thread about how YOU feel your vision of your mustang is progressing on the horizon...

and of course things that irk you that others do to be cool with the import scene...

I'm pretty much on board with you on all of the points. I don't mind the headlights though.

The only way I'd do carbon fiber is if I painted over it to match the car. But, the reduction in weight doesn't concern me enough to justify buying it.

I almost bought some neons, but my friend talked me out of it (thankfully).

my cars WAYYY to low for neons...lol

I feel the same on carbon fiber, would be nice to shed some pounds but looks crappy if not painted to match I feel...I guess carbon fiber would look alright on black cars though...

is it ricey if you pull up to a light and some ricer pulls up with his subs going and the neon flashing and you decide to crank up your 12's and laf at him as sean paul start blabin in w.e language he speaks.. then the guy gets mad turns his down and says lets race and you laugh at him ... cuz u know your sound system sounds better there for you shouldn't even bother with a race cuz u know youll win...

woah... what i was trying to ask was is 10's or 12's a lil ricey or no??

but i am totally with you on the looking back thing... i left school today and was walking to my car... and a huge smile just came over my face.... i was like thats my car their bitch...

and then i did the same thing again today... i crused threw a crowd of ppl... going like .5 mph and i just smilled i was like yea thats right check my whip fool

uhg if only i could afford some mods
lawl oh yea

LOL...

Since I started modding...my mach 460 sound system is good enough...

Since I'm usually turning the radio down all the time anyway so I can hear the car's exhaust note!!!

That's a note the ricer's never get...even if they have 15" jbl's...hehe

:D I look back at my car like 100 times too :lmao I say " damn look at that beast, looks good" or some **** along those lines.

1. "Euro" (implying european) tail lights on a domestic mustang
HELL NO, NEVAAAA!
2. Neon underbody lights
YOU KIDDIN ME!
3. Double decker WINGS
**** NO!
4. carbon fiber anything
If the car is black then cool, otherwise unless the CF looks good painted dont bother, be proud of your MUSCLE and POWER!
5. Projector headlights
Some are ok it depends......prefer 4 piece lights...somethin that looks like factory but better.


one more thing, Listenin to music is nice but on my car, no subs, my car is built 4 speed not bumpin. I rather hear my cars roar now thats some real tunes, lol. for reals tho.

I was thinking the same thing about a year ago. Top down, cruising in front of the college. "Man, I love this car, " I said. Then BAM, WTF. Some ranger pickup makes an illegal left turn right in front of me. BANG, the airbags went off at 25mph. The car was totaled. And, he didn't even have insurance.

I was glad I had uninsured motorist. Now, I'm back on the road with the same car only better.

Oh yeah, I'm running a pair of 10s and a 2500 watt amp. The rest of the system is stock. But, the amp is set up for quality rather than hearing loss.

thats exatcly why these ricer's put this shyt on there cars because they want to be able to pull with a muscle or v6 models of there own kind so they throw carbon everything in order to lessen there body fat and pick up faster, like the other day theres a civic (dx Model i think?) who has pretty much carboned every damn thing on his little car (hood,truck,rearview's,wing,looked like his fenders not sure) and wanted to go for a test trial with my stang, so me being the nice person i am said ok, well waiting for him at the next light i said DOOD what happened he rolled up his window and made a right turn i started busting up because it looks like he put all his money in his body and Exactly $0 dollars into his motor :lmao :lmao well i will see him again he lives in the area i do cant wait for a rd2 :p

I wouldn't of gotten the tail lights that I have, but I have more fun buying parts to make my car faster than I do changing stuff to make it look different. I'm prob just gonna get a chin spoiler, saleen s281 wing, cobra hood, lower it, some diff wheels and call it a day with the looks. I think about buyin stockers again, but then I spend the money on my engine.
