If I may ...

Here is my 2 cents about Saleen Mustang's ... Yes, I agree they have produced some amazing super-fast vehicles, but the problem is there is too many " imitation " Saleen Mustang out there ... Some punk kid can go and buy an $ 6,000 used Mustang V6 base coupe or convertible, " freshen " it up, put on a Saleen body kit and wing, Saleen lookalike rims, Saleen badges, and drive around like he/she is driving around in a real $ 50,000 Saleen ... I know people have done that with base BMW ( making it look like a M-Series ), Mercedes ( AMG ), ... but here is the thing, the " base " car for those people are already an expensive car and it is a lot more expensive to make it look like one ... For example, a lot of people here know that I made my 2010 MK6 Golf GTI look like a MK6 Golf R, and already cost me over $ 10,000 in exterior parts to do it.

Another problem is that a lot of people who are putting these Saleen kit on their base Mustang ain't doing anything with the engine, so it is all " show and no go ", now when some other drivers see you driving one of these fast vehicle, and they know their vehicle is equally as fast or like to see their vehicle stack up to yours, they will push you, and you might look like a laughing fool if you make your base V6 Mustang look like a Saleen Mustang and another punk kid in a Honda Accord V6 smokes you. That is why before I " rebadged " my Golf, I made sure I am not 100% all show and no go ... My stock 210-HP engine is now closer to 360-HP [ http://www.unitronic-chipped.com/ecu-tuning/Volkswagen-Golf-GTI-MK6-20L-TSI-2010-stg2plus ] with upgraded chip, bigger turbo, bigger intercooler, full catback exhaust, upgraded injectors, lightweight pulleys, etc... Again, my engine upgrade alone already cost me close to $ 8,000.

I guess there's some controversy over whether these should be featured or not but it's not my decision lol.
