Another thought; how about getting the coupe bumpers?

I saw the Eibach springs, but are you doing the pro kit or sportlines? also do you plan on doing dampers and alignment parts? since the pro kit is just over an inch drop you can prolly get away with just stock toe adjustment in the rear, but the sportlines will need more adjustment than that to keep them from eating your tires. they also will detroy the stock dampers pretty quick as well.
The chrome grill is okay, I don't want black because the headlights are chrome, but body color would look ok.

The bumper don't really bother me, I actually like the sedan one.

Yeah this is where it's difficult. I want a complete coil over kit, but I do not want to drop a grand on that alone. But I also don't want a HUGE gap like the cars come with, it looks like we have lift kits...

Good luck & already looks sweet!!!
I have considered ditching the ford emblems but I am not sure yet. Is the trunk one riveted in or is it just double-side taped on? If so, that's coming off lol.

Those wheels will look tacky though.
I am thinking blue grille, if I don't leave it chrome but I actually like those rims.
My second choice which costs a bit more would be these:


Those are sick and I am thinking they would look amazing with the tinted windows, 3D carbon kit and being lowered

then these ones also have my eye for $569 shipped
