Newbie - already wrecked my car

Hey guys GTGHOST here - the name is from my mustang back ground - I own a 2006 ford mustang GT - my drag car has an 80mm turbo, built motor all the bells and whistles and is being prepped to put down about 1000rwhp very soon. ( once the snow stops flying) It hasn't always been that way - had a supercharger on it and all that good stuff a year or so ago - you can check that out on youtube

http://www.youtube.com/user/NVRLATE06

well - I have a daily driver I bought in july - a 2013 sterling grey ford focus, ironically I hit a deer on my way to go deer hunting last Friday. caused $5,500 worth of damage - need a new hood, bumper cover, lots of plastic pieces but mainly the reason for the post is headlights...they are $310 a piece from ford for OEM - I would like an aftermarket plug and play brand - around the $450 range for the set - what do you recommend ?

a few other things I wouldn't mind grabbing aftermarket is the hood - $709 for a hood is ridiculous in my opinion
Bumper is also on their estimate -- they want $400 for that...

That sucks but at least you are ok. ST front bumper, and they do have some replica st style headlights on eBay. I've been thinking about them for tax time.

Does that require a different style hood?

Does anyone recommend an after market headlight or have any OEM ones in great condition that the replaced with aftermarket

Same hood. There is a conversion thread on here in the mk3 section.

OK, I wasn't sure about the MN policy about roadkill deer. Nice that you got one in the end though. I agree an ST panel swap would be cool.
