Probably the hood scoop.......err I mean power dome, and the cute little "mini air dam" in the rear bumper........err I mean diffuser, and the Ford 150 side view mirrors.......err I mean aerodynamic E36 inspired mirrors and the 50 thousand useless metal kinks and bumps......err I mean flame surfacing!
