How much would it cost to make my car like this one?
Hi guys, I'm a newbie in the Mustang world and my old BMW just died, so I'm going to get the last 2012 Mustang GT because I've always wanted a Mustang and now I have finally some good money to spend. The issue is that I want to mod my new car right when I pick it up from the dealer! I already have a list of mods in my mind but I'm not used to the prices (I mean not particularly the parts but with the labor costs).
Yesterday I found this video on internet and I loved the mods on the Mustang (all but the rims...)
They talk a lot about the mods but they don't say how much is going to cost the final job with all those parts...
So, I have around 20 grands to invest on top of the base car's price (please, don't tell me to buy a GT500 because I want my car to be unique and I cannot afford to buy a GT500 plus its mods) and I'd like to know what you think I can get among the parts and mods (or similar, I don't actually know the best brands) shown in the video?
I'm considering upgrading the wheels, suspensions, engine and brakes in that order, then I'll focus on the interiors... if I have still money, of course.
I mean also including the labor cost to install all those parts (sorry if the question can sound naive). Basically, is 20 grand enough to make some of the major modifications they show in the video?
Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

right after they said it made 550 hp to the flywheel, while it was tested on a dyno at the wheels, i turned it off.
if they measure at the wheel, the flywheel hp is just an estimate.
looks like crap too. stock looks better.
then i turned it back on again to see what other stupid mods they molested the Mustang with.
that hood scoop is a monstrosity. a cowl would be much better.
the paint job is ugly.
the wheels wouldnt even look good on a Escalade, much less a Mustang.
exhaust does not impress me.
interior does not impress me.
i really dont see whats so great about it.
why do they do such a grand unveiling when it looks like a ricer-Stang.
i bet a GT500 would cost less, and it would be a much smarter choice.
