Default Back in Germany, Pics of my 2012 5.0!!!

Well, finally back home and having a blast with my new ride. So far I've only installed a few of the mods. Took a few pics while at the horse stable (car was only pre-washed).


side/front view with black hood pin apperance kit


Side view with quarter window louver


Rear View with Roush Axle Back


Roush exposed


Retro-Style Shift ****


Another view of the shift ****

Other than that, I still have to install the Boss 302 Chin Spoiler, fog light covers, tri-pony center caps, still debating on plasti-dipped wheels (matte black) and still considering if I want to install the black hood scoop I purchased in which I will post a pic for public opinion.

More pictures to come once the weather clears up..

That looks really good! You've been posting for a while now, but this is the first time I get to see your car. I think Plasti Dipped wheels will look really good with the look you got going on. It'll match those stripes really well. I'm actually gonna Plasti Dip my wheels later when I get home.

Thanks. Feels good to finally be able to post pics of my ride and driving a Mustang in Europe is better than I imagined. The looks I get on the autobahn or cruis'in thru the city with the roush exhaust is priceless. Two days ago, I saw a soldier with a black 5.0 with plasti-dipped wheels (same wheels I have) and they looked real good, so I will order some shortly...

Why plastidip them? Just spray paint them. Plastidip can throw them off balance, and add unnecessary weight. At autobahn speeds, you don't wanna mess with the balance of your rims. Are the hood pins functional, or appearance only? I'm confused by the way you described it.

Roni, nice pics, thanks for sharing. Don't you love the Roush at full throttle? I am glad you finally got a break from hunting the Taliban to enjoy some American muscle.

Looking good! Have you been able to clean all of the sand and dirt from every crevice of your body yet? haha.

Looks good! With all of the money you put into mods and had to wait to install them, you're going to be seriously transforming your ride in a quick amount of time! It'll be like a whole new car!

How stringent are the local police with tinting laws, or are there any? I feel like your windows could go a couple shades darker. Would compliment those black stripes for sure.

@mosh: Those are non-functional hoodpins. Just wanted to See how they Look before installing Real ones. As far as rims, just going to Save up to get the gt500's or Black bullits.

@madstang: almost sand free, lol...in Germany you are allowed to get the rear and rear side Windows tinted only (Not the Front so that the Speed Camera can get a proper pic of The driver. So for now i plan on getting the rear windows tinted and when im back in the States, get the rest tinted Out.

@alan: the Roush are awesome!!!!! The germans are in shock and awe when i Drive in Full trottle and The constant Thumbs up makes me feel like the coolest kid on the Block...
