Front plate and bracket have already been removed (first modification).
Second modification was attaching the chrome rear license plate bracket (originally on the BMW). Took some "creativity" and modifying to get it to work correctly since the BMW had (4) screws (with corresponding chrome caps) and the Mustang only has the top (2). Some tooling around and a couple well-placed drops of crazy glue worked out well.
I'll see if I can snap some more pics today.
I like that color a lot. How long is the warranty? i.e. how long until it's got a blower? hehe
I would have posted up the pics for you, but I was in Manila when you first asked. Would have taken forever.

P.S. If I enter races that are far away, Less competition shows up and I place better. *shrug*
I can do some simple mods now (ie. CAI with tune) - supposed to be worth 20-25 hp for $750 (includes hand-held tuner and several tunes).
Don't know if I'll tear into the exhaust yet (high-flow x-pipe and then subsequent tail-back system). Will look into some lowering springs and hope that I don't have to get a bunch of supporting parts just for those. So, the short list:
1) clear bra
2) lowering springs
3) window tint
4) lower and upper control arms (rear) to squelch wheel hop
5) CAI with tuner
They have a BOSS intake available but probably won't go with that for now. For a daily-driven street car, I don't know if that would be worth it. It provides substantial gains in the upper RPM range (ie. past the stock redline) and I think would get some very solid gains if added to a blown car...
looking at? Seems that sometimes slapping on some drop springs jacks up the handling unless it's a well-tested, matched setup.
The suspension is firm enough - I don't need to any more firmness.
Those two sets are supposed to be ideal for street cars. They have stiffer "competition springs" which are firmer and drop it more, but I don't need those. Don't want to compromise the current ride integrity - its stiff enough (that's what she said ;)
Civilized (when you need it to be).
It is continuing to surprise me (the power).
I've been driving it relatively mildly during break in - to the point where I question if the car really has 400+ horsepower. Then every once in a while, I step on it and am amazed at what it does (and it confirms the 400+ hp). Temps are still pretty chilly here so I really haven't wanted to push the acceleration nor handling too much since I have summer tires on..and they're slick anywhere below 40°.
