Ford: 1999-2003 Mustang GT, urethane, primer finish, 2001 Mustang Cobra bumper cover conversion kit

Do you have a 1999 or later Mustang GT but wish it was a Cobra instead? Then this 2001 Mustang Cobra bumper cover conversion kit is for you. While it won't make your GT run like a Cobra, it'll sure make it look like the real thing. That's because the cover is a direct replacement for the factory 2001 Cobra cover. Made from thick, durable urethane for strength, it comes complete with the driving lights, mounting hardware, and instructions you'll need for installation onto your car.

Sold as a kit.

$359.95

How lame. Just like the thousands of "Type-R" Civics, Accords, and Preludes out there.
:ghey:

Hey I just ordered that :(

hehehe I actually know a guy out at the SCCA autox that has one of those on his 01 GT. He also has a lot of other mods and brags a lot. I beat his ass at the last event. :D

Meh, I'm not to offended by that, some people may just find the SVT bumper to be more attractive than the GT bumper. Its a pretty subtle mod.

However, you might start stepping on some toes when you start buying and placing SVT logos and cobra emblems on your car. Oh, and one of those sound things that sounds like a blow-off valve but there isn't anything there. THAT's when I think I might start having a problem :boxer: :badass:

Yeah I agree. I like the SVT wheels but I wouldn't put them on my car without different center caps. No need to pretend it's a Cobra. I definitely want a new hood down the road. While autocrossing, that non-functional hood scoop kinda gets in the way. I kinda like the Cobra R hood.

That's how I feel as well. I may like something a lot, but I'm not going to make my ride seem like another model by copying from it.

No "RS4" badges for you :pd:
