B&T '06 liquid grey progress thread

Hey all.

Haven't been active in a long time. Got my hands on a low mile '06 and sure enough, the modding bug came back. Gonna be documenting my progress on here.

First, pics of the ride when I first got her on Friday.





The badges were gone and antenna chopped within an hour of bringing the car home.

I am donating my old ride to charity, so yesterday I stole the wheels off my '03 and did a transplant.




Mods planned for this year:

CAI
Hi flow cat and exhaust
Tinted tails and corners
1.5" drop
Tint windows all around
SVT rear bumper
Roush side skirts
SAP front bumper
Paint mirrors
Gloss pillars
Move audiophile sub to new car
New head unit

Got a fs cai on the way. Frpp springs and dampers have been ordered but won't be installed for a couple months since i am rehabbing from a cut tendon in my hand.

Good to be back.

Good plan for mods! The only 05 -07's that I like are SAP's, if you can't get SAP I would do a 00 - 04 conversion with an SVT or Euro front.

Steve from tousley is hooking me up with the sap front. Gonna be painful, but I agree with you. Only 05-07 I like are the sap foci.

Well since I'm donating this car to get a tax break and they'll pay me more for a car that is running... the answer is no. ;)

I do got some stuff on the bst forum though. Mostly whatever I can't scavange for the new ride.

Your just as well off getting the SAP front and rear bumpers. The fit is better imo and I like the Roush side skirts. Can't wait to see it done.

The rears don't fit the hatch. But yeah the kit is actually a better deal. I'm buying the kit and selling the rear bumper separate.

I have a donor car and could probably go back to an 00-04 front end, but i drove an 03 sedan for 9 years with an svt front bumper and kind of want something different now.
