    I'm curious to see what novelties people have been outfitting their Mustangs with, perhaps with an eye to buy some bits to amuse my mates on our next road trip....

    Anyway, I'll get the ball rolling with this set of Need For Speed replica show plates from Illumaesthetic. Obviously not road legal, but they have managed to turn a couple of extra heads at shows from nerds who recognise a minute part of their childhood stuck to the bumper of a Ford they happen to be passing...

    I'm also quite tempted by the prospect of a plush nitrous oxide bottle....

    Throttle enhancer for my ecoboost, it actually worked too good, car turned into a rocket of the line, couldn't trust it and it was dangerous in bad weather, had to turn it off at that point when that happened.

    Also when Ford replaced my a/c evaporator under warranty the tech had no clue I had it all wired up under the dash and he mangled it pretty good, pedalmax fixed it free of charge but didn't really want to put it back in the car anyways, lol.

    Adjustable if you add on the $75 switch, that had to be run to a reachable location which isn't easy, just got tired of adjusting it all the time, forget and I am almost spinning my wheels. Plus it's gimmicky nature always bothered me, not ripping the device completely, it does work, just not my cup of tea anymore.

    I have valve stem covers with USAF emblems on them, so it's either that, or the throttle body spacer.

    Or all the parts that are still gathering dust on shelves cuz I haven't put them on...

    I am going to buy one of those plush nitrous bottles that is awesome. Might have to get two one for the back seat of the car and the second for my bed.

    Easy one. Mine would be the Coyote cup holder pieces that started scratching right after I put them in.

    I made a thread about those a year or so back for the GT and boy did it offer a huge debate. I came to the conclusion that there was no consciences on it.

    Not necessarily for the S550, but because of it, I bought these Mustang cufflinks. I own at least 3 other pairs of cufflinks, and wear French cuffs at most twice a year. So on average they get worn once every 2 years.
