    I'd like to see some side-view pictures of what you guys have done to your cobras (2007-2009). I love the front of these cars, but i can't help but feel like ford kinda phoned it in when it comes to the side of these cars. seems a bit bland. post some pictures if you've got different scoops/louvers, sideskirts, etc. i need ideas!

    I was never crazy about scoops and louvers.
    So I just went with new wheels, painted side skirts, painted lower valance on the rear bumper. CF front splitter, powder coated calipers. Blacked out reflectors and turn signals. 5% tint and lowered way more then stock. Also paint matched mirror caps

    I love the way the car looks! And it is very easy to make these cars your own with all the mods out there

    These cars dont need much, lower stance, wheels and tint for looks. They are raw and look damn good in their simple forms....thinking about grabbing one in a few years to have as my beater....:lol1:

    I went with the FRPP suspension package, 2010 wheels, Baer Brake package, Super Snake cf splitter, painted mirror covers (a must have for the 07-09's), and the lower side scoops. I wasn't a big fan of the upper scoops.

    Painting the sideskirts makes a huge difference. Getting mine done this spring. All i've done is smoked sidemarkers, painted mirror covers, shorty antenna, window tint, Roush sideskirt splitters and carbon fiber rear splash guards. I purchased the Shelby super snake side scoops last year and after holding them up to the car i just sold them. Not my style.

    when youve got a car as fast as these, what's 5 pounds of plastic to make it look unique? douchebag.

    if that's the case i offer a sincere apology. We're too old to be acting like the kids on honda-tech forums :)

    Great looking cars so far. The half painted rear diffuser is growing on me! 07-09 is by far the best looking body style (other than the classics)

    We're family here. The kind that has earned the right to bust one another's balls when the door is swung wide open.

    And while I'm a minimalist at heart, I paid homage to CJ's of yore with a die cast emblem to replace the plastic one on the grille...

    Guys, your cars all look great.
