Default New Z Owner-Gun Metallic 11'

Just pulled the trigger a few days ago (Friday) and haven't been able to post since I was having too much fun driving it. Anyways its a Touring/Sport/Nav brand new 80 miles on the clock from it being driven to the dealer that I bought from since they didn't have it in stock. First mods on order, Kickplates, a Stillen front plate holder, 35% tints, and a plate frame. Next should be Evo R Led fog light but I am not sure where to order from and I need the switch also. Anyways here it is...

Always a big fan of the Gun Metallic. Similar to the color of my old 350.

^^Thanks, the color is truely amazing, new for 2011 and same color as GTR Gun metal. Anyways i had a couple questions. Weird thing is the front aero chin spoiler wasn't installed but in my trunk wrapped up.
Any reason why this wasnt on the car? Is this usually owner option or supposed to just be on the car from factory? Also there is two other parts in my trunk wrapped up, one says left and one says right and seems to be same material as aero spoiler. Maybe it's a part of the aero chin, I'm not sure.

The dealer is suppose to prep the car before delivery and install those pieces.

^^yea I don't know why they didn't. Also they scratched and swirled up my paint while prepping and my friend at the body shop I go to said they did a terrible job. Noticeable in sunlight.

Hey man we pretty much got our cars at the same time! I picked mine up on 24 Oct 2011. I like your color. My delivery wasn't so spectacular either. No swirls but my exterior had all kind of water spots and lubricants and adhesive stuff on the body. I've claybarred the hood a couple times and was able to get most of it off.

I didn't know that the GTR and 370Z shared a color. That's really cool man. The GTR is one of my dream cars. Do you have any pics of your interior? Have you done any mods?

Great looking car. Have the dealer pay for a good paint correction detail. Dealer detailers are such monkeys.
