Thanks guys... I honestly really appreciate your opinions. This is why ai love the forum. I decided to keep the car BSM, but with matte black accents.

And that saves me some dough for more mods, I'm thinking about doing OnEighty headlights...

You need to focus your time and money on getting the front bumper swapped to a custom M5 bumper. This will set the car off, dont worry about headlight right now.

I've been emailing a bunch of companies and trying to work out something, I'm just saying about the headlights with th money for the matte black. . Don't you worry, I'll hopefully have some new bumpers soon!

I totally agree with what he said. IMO if you're gonna focus on modding your car, you should on adding at least the 5 GT M Sport bumper. Any other mods wouldn't be objective "improvements" however your particular setup can really benefit from the M Sport bumper. I don't necessarily think that M look fits the GT in general (looks awkward and forced on a car of the GT's nature), but with the mods you've done to make the car look more aggressive, you have one GT that really can benefit from an M style bumper.

Thanks. I appreciate your comments about the GT. TBH, I don't even personally love seeing a stock one in the street (esp in lighter colors), but I think my mods have helped transform the character of the GT.
