How do you like the Tanabe springs?

What's next? Ever thought of getting an aftermarket exhaust?

They're pretty great. Same ride comfort as stock with a good drop. I'll be getting coils soon so I'll probably throw these on the classifieds.

F-Sport exhaust coming soon

Here it is at stock. Purchased on August 7, 2011.


and my first mod came within a week: Redouts. Gave the rear end a much improved look.



another week...and got the car tinted + HIDs. 20% F 15%RTint





About a month passed and I was tired of stock height. Picked up some Tanabe DF210 springs and installed an lip spoiler and roof spoiler.



the same day...I wanted to make it a little louder, so I got the resonators removed.



Time to make it a little sportier, so got the roof blacked out and removed the roof spoiler because it looked out of place. Also installed an F-Sport shift ****.


18" G35 rims painted black with Motorsport Hardware lugs.


Hardwired the 9500ix into the mirror with a mirror mount.


Installed hte sub in a shallow mount portex box to gain a little more trunk space.
