Default 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...)

http://cc.ebay.com/mod-jobs/#eps7

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!

I agree, the exterior is horrible. Please don't do any of that to a mustang.

Those people who designed the exterior body mods, they were bragging about must be blind. That hood scoop is terrible.

The exterior of the car looks terrible. Just do some searching on the forum, you will find pricing for exhaust, shifter, and all kinds of F/I options.

I WANT that interior

And I want everything on the exterior to be scrapped and made into Chinese children's toys.

Take that 20k, put 10k more in payments, and use the remaining 10k to install suspension and a blower...done!

That hood is HIDEOUS!
Are you kidding me?

These guys have been ragged on all over forums for the way they have made the hood on a couple of their cars like this and also much of the rest of the outside mods.

That is not as bad as some of the cars they have done as shown in that clip.
(YES those are the ones most people have said are ABOMINATIONS).

To each his own but I and most others would NOT put that on your car!

Poop.
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.

On first glance, I saw nothing very catchy or brilliant about the interior. That Ipad is meh, have fun charging it all the time, AND pulling it out of the car (lithium ion batteries don't take well to summer heat) every time you park it for longer than an hour. And where are the aux inputs? (i.e. the USB, even mediocre systems have USB input nowadays)

And of all the places they could have stuck that radar, they put it on the center console?? In plain view of anyone (cop) who looks in. As if that area of the car didn't have enough going on, that it needed one MORE display for your eyes.

I wouldn't even use a picture of that car to wipe my ***, even if it was the last piece of soft ply in my house.

Is it just me or are most of the vehicles displayed at SEMA riced out? (obviously I'm not talking about those sexy TruFiber stangs!) This looks like it should be driven by "Kick ***" right beside "Red Mist"...Gross!

The iPad is awesome - you fail to realize many aspects of it.

That iPad is SPECIFICALLY for cars - so I bet it doesn't run off the lithium ions. Also, it is hooked into the cars electrical system so the alternator would charge it even if it did have a battery.

Also, as far as aux inputs, most of that stuff is going to wireless anyhow and I'm sure that iPad is ahead of the curve in that area.

They also have iPads that are integrated into the instrument panels on planes - and I have flown a Cirrus that did have one. It was amazingly convenient.

The li-Ion battery system is integrated into the IOS system. I doubt they took the time to re engineer an entire ipad.

I am sure they have a charger built into the car for the ipad (behind that disgusting plate) but again, putting music on that thing requires that you remove it completely from the car. No Ipad I know of can be hooked straight up to a USB. Gotta take it to the computer just to add songs/files/movies.

Same for output, they may be using the charger thing (I forget what its called, vga?) for output like my moms iHome does.

I do like the ipad though, very sleek gadget IMO. Just not in a car as a stationary device.

Thanks guys, I appreciated your comments... even if many of you don't like all the mods. I agree about the rims (ugly even for an Escalade), and partially about the hood scoop (maybe it's not great, but it's pretty aggressive), but I think the other stuff is cool. The painting job is a subjective thing...

What do you think about the Edelbrock turbo charger?? And what do you think can cost in labor to install all the after parts?

Thanks again!

The Edlebrock is a supercharger, not turbo. Out of the car, the charger, exhaust and springs would be the ONLY things I would take from that car. Everything else can go to the scrap heap. Was it just me or in the video they had a Stang with not one but TWO of those atrocious scoops? ��

Yeah it was the shark themed one right? I saw that in another thread, apparently it's a theme they have going for the car to look like a sea faring animal... A but weird, but it's their money/time.

Most Sema Mustangs have too much ugly crap slapped on them. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
