Default Purchased S-Tune Sides, Options?

Hey guys, a while back I scraped my side skirt up and instead of repairing it, I ended up picking up the S-Tune sides, which I have always liked. My question is, my car currently has splash guards installed in the front. Would it be wise to re-install the splash guards once I put the S-Tune sides on, or should I leave them off? Thanks for the help.

I'm pretty sure you can't install splashguards onto the s tune sideskirts.

Not sure if the splash guards will work with the Nismo side skirts. The OEM splash guards didn't fit on my 350Z after I installed Nismo sideskirts on it. I ended up making splash guards for the front out of some old Corvette splash guards.

You can see them in this picture behind the front wheel.

Interesting, I wonder if I should take off the rears too then.

The rears will work as long as you dont get the NISMO add-on pieces for the rear. You will have to remove the old side skirt and the mud guards.

The side skirts are not just a cover or an add-on piece like traditional side skirts. They actually replace the entire rocker panel between the front and rear fenders.

I'm just wondering if the rear splashguards will look strange on the car with the absence of the front ones.

No the car will look fine with the rear splash guards and the Nismo side skirts. I have the Nismo front chin spoiler and side skirts on my 350Z along with the OEM rear splashguards. That set up looks fine. And the 370Z rear splash guards are much more subtle than the 350Z rear splash guards.

BTW right now I'm just planning to add a lip spoiler to my 370Z along with the EVO-R rear diffuser. Otherwise I plan on leaving my OEM splash guards on the car. If I do add side skirts I'll leave the rear splash guards on the car rather than adding rear skirts.
