I've been on the forum for some time now and thought I should start one of these. I don't have a whole lot of mod's yet, but I thought it was worth sharing the progress.

Previous rides (in order of ownership): '89 Jeep Cherokee, '92 Toyota Camry, '98 Nissan Maxima & '05 Mazda RX-8

About my Z:
- Purchased June 2009
- 2009 Magnetic Black Coupe with Touring Package
- 6-Speed Manual Trans.
- Black Leather Interior

Current Appearance Modifications:
- OEM front chin spoiler
- OEM rear spoiler
- Wider tires for OEM 18's (Advan Sport 275/40/18 Back & 245/45/18 Front)
- Stillen front license plate mount
- Evo-R 3-piece front lip (Painted to match)
- Rear Fog Light
- GT-R Start Button

Current Performance Modifications:
- K & N drop in filters
- HPS silicone intake tubes (not yet installed)
- Borla Dual Cat-back Exhaust

Paint/Finish Repair Tools:
- Porter Cable 7424XP
- Adam's Polishes & Waxes

Future Modifications (wish list):
- Custom painted headlights
- Wheel & Tire upgrade (Volks TE37's or OEM Nismo)
- Brake upgrade (OEM SP Kit with red calipers)
- Swift springs or possibly Coilovers
- Quaife Differential
- UpRev Tune
- Side skirts
- Oil Cooler

I plan on keeping the Z for a while, so I'm really in no hurry to buy everything possible. Not to mention, parts can be pricey and I have limited funds I can dedicate to the car. Also, it takes the fun out of modding when your car is "done."

Here are some older images I'm sure most have seen already. I will update periodically with newer pictures when I get a chance.

Mike, if you hang out at that place any longer, they should really start getting you on their payroll. Anthony tells me you've been there at least once a week

I'd really like to go this weekend, but I have to go to a wedding on Saturday. I can probably make it out there next Saturday if the weather's nice.

Also, it's amazing how a new exhaust makes me want to drive the car more. I even get the occasional muscle car guys look up to see what just passed by. How did your spacers turn out?

haha i literally have been there every week for the past 2 months. Probably going to be back there again on saturday for some test pipes.

spacers came out great, makes everything look a lot better.

and yes, i totally agree on the new exhaust. when i first installed mine, it was like i had a new car. have fun with it

Nice exhaust. I like the deep growl to it.
