Traded in Wife's Z for an Xterra for various reason main factor buying her a big *** house!



Cleaned up first post again to reflect some changes. Purchased another 370z its progress can be tracked later in the thread. From the time we purchased our first 370 I was not happy with the power of the car to say the least. I purchased it for my wife so I opted to not get the M6 so she would be more comfortable driving it.

I started to do visual mods as I found time (and money). Spent almost two years also saving for a FI option. Long story short I decided to not go with FI on the 7AT. A deal came up from a member on the forum on a sweet 09 M6 that he had already installed a TT kit on. The rest is history!

May 2010 Wifes car purchased

Found the only picture of it stock lol


June 2010 First mods commenced

Modified headlights, custom painted wheels, tinted tails, color matched handles, and clear bra.





October 2010 Exhaust Upgrade

During this time I was shopping for body kits/working on a custom fender with UAM and their partners.

December 2010 Second round of mods

Ordered CF Amuse, custom fenders, EVO-R door handle overlays, GTR start button, and started looking into CF interior parts.

April 2011

Custom fenders finally done! Time to start putting this beast together. Decided on a custom wrap vs painting at the moment.
Ordered CF Interior parts, custom wheel from CF Element, and a Seibon CF TS-Style Hood.





Car as of 4/16/2011

Wheels repainted, headlights redone by 180 Customs with new LED Orb, Custom paint job on the hood, and custom wrap by RedlineDesigns.

No the taillights are just candy black and clear, when I get my body kit it will be accented with the same purple to help bring the color together over the entire car.

Baker Tuning can hook you up on the Amuse Kit, and for a good price. I think that kit would look great in black.

Pretty cool. I'm not quite sold on the wheels (I think the silver would look better in black) but I'm interested to see how this all turns out.

Alot of my buddies who looked at photos felt the same way, until they seen it in person. I did want the ones that have the black on the inside and just the mahcined face to bad it didnt come in the offsets I wanted =(.

Ok need some thoughts on how to paint my Amuse kit. I will be ordering it in time to have it by the end of the year. Im no photoshop person and I actually used MS Paint to do these so dont be mean about the editing! I just wanted to have a rough idea on paper of what I was thinking in my head. My car is black not white, and the purple on these pics will match the purple that is on the actual car. Let me know what you think or if you have any other ideas. Thanks!

The kit would look pretty good in black I think, but the rear wing is just too much
