Wrights G35x *new stuff*

Havent posted much since buying my car so I figured it was time to make a ride thread for the new car. Ive made a few minor modifications since I purchased and there will be a few more coming later on this year.

The next mod for sure will be BC coilovers to get rid of the monsterous ride height and front wheel gap :squint:

Then:
Mod the headlights
Paint the grille
OEM front lip
Rear diffurser
Exhaust (for sound :wub:)

Heres how It is a couple days after purchase, and these pics has already been posted on my Stratus page.






First thing done was window tint which made the car look tons better





Then added a 'lip' spoiler to the trunk. Hides the chrome strip on the top but Im still undecided on what I want to do with the rest of it.





Replaced all of the courtesy lights with white LED's along with the tag lights and front running lamps





The air filters that were in the car were just plain paper filters and I wanted something that was easy to maintain and possibly not have to replace for a very long time. I bought HKS dry flow filters.





Random crappy cell phone shot of the rear all lit up.





Then came the new rimzz' ;) Decided to put my Z wheels on the G since I never had the chance to do it with the Stratus




Time for a debadge for the most part





All done!



This brings me to this evening. I decided to give the car a good cleaning and waxing. Will be showing up for Z days this weekend so need the car fresh

















This last one is for giggles. Look at that gap! :lol:



Some of these shots are very similar but I was playing around with the camera and Photoshopping skillz. Wanted to post all to see how they turned out.

Let me know what you think :)

nice!

Get some new bolts/screws for your license plate holder, they kinda look a bit rusted. Have you though about plasti-dipping your front grill and emblems? might be a nice accent color.

Edit: I learned how to read the first post.

The bolts will be replaced as soon as my custome plate comes in. Takes hell and ever for KY plates to be made :rant:

The grille will be two tone. Top and bottom strips will be silver to match the car and the rest will be black with the chrome emblem.

Not bad looking. The Z wheels are really meaty, but I am hoping to see a nice aggressive drop. I love when big bodies are slammed

Always liked these cars. Especially the awd version. I wouldn't do more than you did to it. Intake, exhaust and maybe a chip. Good to go. Love it!

Car is beautiful, super clean. Chris came and stayed at my place for the evening and let me tag along at ZdayZ. Nissan doesnt play around. Awesome display they had up there with free stuff, and Nissans completely took over the area. Over 100 cars in the show, another 50 parked at cabins at Fontana Village, and countless others on the Dragon and surrounding roads. Lots of money tied up in those things!

Thanks for bringing me out Chris!

Anytime Dan!

Looks great! Looking forward to seeing you again in a few weeks!
Thanks! Ill be there!

Im sure it will be a power downgrade but it sure wont leave you dissatisfied for a sedan. My car, having the VQ35HR does a low 14 in the 1/4 mile stock. A few bolt ons makes It better. Im not sure what the G37 does but im sure its better or close.
I wish i had a 2010+ model as the minor facelift Infiniti did thru out the car makes all the difference.

If you get a new G37x your looking at a $40k plus car where as mine was $36k new with the premium package so the prices gave increased with quality. My dealer has their last 2011 g37x with premium and tech package. Marked down to ~$38k with only 450 miles on it. They tried to get me to trade my car in on it but i didnt like the payment that was quoted lol!

Good luck on your car search! Cant wait to see what you find, hopefully yiou can get your hands in a G37xs!

As I posted in my last few posts I got the car ready to go to Zdayz over the weekend and was lucky to find these pics of my car. I'm very happy with the way they turned out! Order quote a few of the prints :wub:

Only downfall from the last two was the prick in the Camaro wouldn't get off my ass :rant:
