Review & Install Video
Hey everybody, I'm Justin with AmericanMuscle.com and this is my quick review of the MMD by FOOSE Side Scoops, available either unpainted or pre-painted, fitting your 2015 and newer Mustang. So these side scoops are going to be for any S550 owner out there who enjoy more of a custom or modified look, and think that the new Mustangs are missing a vital piece of Mustang DNA, a side scoop. That's because side scoops have pretty much graced every Mustang since its birth in the 60s, and a lot of folks feel a car looks naked without them.
One person in particular who feels this way is none other than master car builder Chip Foose himself, and he worked with MMD in designing these scoops for the modern S550. Chip's entire approach when coming up with these parts for the new S550 is a simple one. He told me he wants them to look as if they could have come from the factory. So working off the lines of the new chassis, he did what he does best. Came up with a few killer parts, along with MMD, and now we're bringing them to you guys.
Now checking these things out on the car, I'm definitely getting a late 60s Shelby GT500KR or King of the Road vibe, maybe even a slight Eleanor vibe as well. And that's really no surprise, seeing that Chip is a big fan of some of the classic stuff. Now, I'm always going to be a less-is-more fan personally, when it comes to exterior styling, but I have to admit I really do enjoy what Chip and MMD have accomplished with the side of the new S550 in regards to the overall styling. Their quarter window covers are awesome, and of course these side scoops are two killer parts that really do enhance the lines of the new Mustang.
Now I will say, when installed, these things do give the car a slightly wider look, give the side of the car a little bit more muscle, which I really enjoy. Like most other aftermarket side scoop options for your ride, you're gonna find a durable and lightweight ABS plastic for the build here, guys. I really do enjoy what Chip and his team have done with the front of this scoop. They've incorporated a honeycomb material very similar to the factory grill on your S550.
In addition to that, you are gonna find those two finish options. The unpainted, it's gonna save you a little bit more money initially, and it's a great way to go if you have a paint hookup or if you plan on spraying these things yourself. On the other hand, if you don't wanna go through the hassle of getting these things painted yourself, hoping they match when they're all done, then you should definitely check out some of our pre-painted options here at AM. Now these are gonna be available in just about every factory color available for your S550. It's only $100 more, and they're gonna be sprayed using the same base and clear coat that Ford uses, ensuring a perfect color match to your ride.
On the topic of price, I think you'll find the MMD by FOOSE Side Scoops in the same general ballpark as most other aftermarket side scoops. And this is of course referring to the unpainted products, so ROUSH or whatever else you might find on the aftermarket. Now the pre-painted option of course will add a little bit more to the final price tag, but again you are paying for the convenience of that perfect color match and not having to get these things painted on your own time.
All right guys, installation's going to be very straightforward here. Simple peel-and-stick job, 1 out of 3 wrenches on my difficulty meter, and maybe 30 minutes of your time in the garage or driveway. You're really not gonna need any tools for this one. Instead, you'll want to use everything included in the package to really nail that prep work, because that's gonna be the big important part here guys, to ensure these things stay on the side of your ride. So get the area nice and clean first using those alcohol prep pads, get that adhesion promoter to ensure a nice and secure bond to the side of your car, line the scoops up properly, and then adhere them to your ride.
All right guys, I'll be the first to tell you, side scoops aren't always going to be everyone's thing. However, if you do really like the look and you want a unique option designed by the legend himself, you'll have to check out the MMD by FOOSE options, available right here at AmericanMuscle.com.
