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

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.
