Default Roush fascia on a cali special?

I was wondering if it would defeat the purpose of owning a cali special if I put my roush fascia on off my 2010? I have had it for sale for a few weeks now, and was thinking of just keeping it and getting it repainted to put it on my 2012 and use the cali special grille with it. The only thing is, would it defeat the purpose of owning a cali special? Or should I just go with the boss 302 splitter and call it a day?

I'd just go boss splitter, then again I'm biased since that's what I did lol. Makes more sense in my opinion though, since you already have the CS/boss fascia going for you.

It's not like a Cali Special is a rare model so do what you think will look best. I personally LOVE the Roush front end.

^ yea...if you had a shelby and was asking the same question, i think there would be a thread full of negative reactions/comments...the CA Special isn't that much special or rare

I understand the C/S isnt "rare" but it still kinda defeats the purpose of getting the GTCS package if I am just going to rip the parts off. I personally hate that effing spoiler lol so that is definitely going sooner or later.

I am just going to give it some thought, maybe even just wait until spring if I decide I want to do it. My father (the anti modder) said to just leave it alone that I got the cali special package and payed for it, so why rip the parts off.

There is not 1 GT/CS in my area, and I also had the roush look on my 2010 so I am going to give it some more thought and maybe just go with the boss look on this car. Thanks for everyones opinions though, I will post back on my decision

I'm not gonna comment on the posts by baker (surprised me coming from him) or shad on the rareness of the CS, but it would seem to me, grabber, that it would be defeating the purpose of purchasing the CS package...your $$$, your ride...FWIW, mine is #789 of 1405 built, 23 of 372 in Vapor for 2009...From Ford's records and certifications...
