Default Which Grille do you like best and why? (Poll)

All cars have the Roush Front Bumper/Spliter on it.

Choice 1: Standard GT Grille with a more Chrome Horse than the darker Chrome one currently on.

Choice 2: CS Style Grille with Black painted Bars

Choice 3: V6 Style grill-- no "COVERS" for where fog lights would be (missing round circles)- (such as the BOSS grille) - but no fog lights either.. standard Pony Logo in the middle. I'd obtain a billet overlay of some sort so that it doesn't have the honeycomb look, but more of the horizontal bar look, while retaining the Chrome Horse.

These are all LESS than stellar quick photoshops of my goals... please dont pick tooo hard at the 'wheels are too big' or 'the grille looks misshapened - I'm not a photoshop professional, just did some tweaking and playing around to get a jist of the idea.

That being said... which do you like best? And why?

Option 4 is "other" let me hear your suggestions... The car is black, so I dont like the idea of just a black billet grille with nothing else, it just looks too plain. this is why I'd want the CS grille beacuse it has the pony tri-bar logo... or the V6 grille since it has the big chrome pony int he middle.

The cs the roush or the saleen grills are cool imo, I think the saleen one is the nicest / meanest looking one.

Yes & No

I think pony that badge would look good on the cs or the roush grill.

Since the Saleen has less bars and a different design i think it looks better by it self.

Just my Opinion

Kind of like the roush or saleen grill w/o emblem.
My second option would be Standard with tinted fogs.

In my opinion the saleen grille with the roush fascia looks killer. I already have the grille, and ordering the fascia later this week =P

Looks like the V6 in the Ford Commercial, HAS the Roush Bumper as well... shown also with roush side splitters and Factory HIDs.

More or less my 3rd option above:

Okay well now that the Grille is "decided" Gonna go with a billet style, tribar offset logo grille. So more than likely a roush grille with aftermarket tribar logo.

I want to get this one: http://www.americanmuscle.com/black-...ille-2010.html

But I've not heard good things about its quality and it concerns me. Anyone know anything about it?

I thought I was set on the Roush bumper, but I guess I'm still debating between two different front 'bumpers' or lips...

First option ( 1) - The roush Bumper will end up costing quite a bit of money, buying the bumper, painting it, etc... It looks great... but I'm not sure its worth almost double the cost of option 2 (below):

Option (2) - This is the CS front lip on the FACTORY front bumper. I do like it, but I'm not sure I like it enough. When I factor in that its half the cost of option 1, it looks better and better lol...

Which would you guys choose? Esp when factoring in cost... ?

Well you already know I ordered the cs/saleen combo. I would show you pics of mine, but I did not get the gt front bumper in yet, so I am still waiting on this. I still love the cs package as my favorite front. The only thing I cannot decide on is whether I want to buy the saleen hood or wait to see what else may come out.

I would like the hood that BMC customs made for the gt500, but it wont fit

You're in luck. Super Snake styled hood for the GT
