Default What appearance mods would you do with $1000??

Hey, guys. I have been putting together lists of appearance mods for a while now trying to determine the best list of appearance items to give me the most bang for my buck. I already have a GT500 rear valance with match mud flaps, shorty antenna, and some hood pins (if they don't go along with the design when finished, I won't be putting them on), but nothing installed yet. My windows are already tinted as well. So, for $1000, what would you suggest I add to my 2010 GT to make it stand out from the crowd? Graphics? Wheels? Body kit? Combination of a few items? Shoot me your ideas. Thanks peeps!

I would do the Roush front end conversion with billet grille, moving the fogs to the bumper and then lower the car. That should use up about $1k and make your car stand out from other GTs.

That Roush front end is shmexy. I vote for that or wheels. Can't go wrong on either.

Man, the suggestions that I got on this forum were MUCH better than another forum. Wow. And, the suggestions were pretty much my line of thinking as well. Very nice. Thank you very much guys! Please keep the suggestions coming, though. The LED license plate lights is not a bad idea actually. Now, that's something I didn't think about. Definitely may consider them now. Also, wilkinda, your GB stang is beautiful. You were the first to get me to consider the Roush front end. Love it! I saw one in my color and it only made me want it more. So, that is a very possible mod. I have actually even considered doing a complete Roush conversion. Would cost about $3K for all the body parts and about $6K with the wheels and tires as well. Options for the Mustang has always been crazy, but as of late, they are only growing. I love it, but makes the choice tough.

Ok, peeps, please, please keep the ideas coming. I really hope to get a more concrete idea of what I am going to be doing with your help.

Thanks!
