Smile Opinions on my plans?

Hey guys, I recently got my white 2017 base model 370z in the last year and I'm finally getting around to the point where I can start upgrading my car. I'm planning to have the car be like clean, but still exotic/sport. Let me know what you guys think about my idea!

My car is in pearl white, new stock black wheels, and no spoiler.

Body: Amuse front bumper - Duck bill/v1 Nismo wing(ex:2011 wing)
Exhaust: GReddy EVOlution GT/ARK Grip
Wheels: ??
Suspension: Probably just Swift springs depending on the wheels

Let me know what you guys think about my idea!

Nice parts list.

If that's what you want and it makes you happy, I think it's a great idea! Represent your taste and style!

Thanks! I'm just thinking someone has seen some of those parts together and if they look a bit off or something. Some... second opinions about the pairings or something.

I would definitely consider beefing up foundation: Brakes,Locking Differential,,,Those are probably 2 biggest differences between base & sport.

I would do the full Amuse kit.

It's like wearing a suit without pants.

Best "bang for the buck" mod is the front sway bar. Highly suggest looking to add that to the list.

If you are looking for rims and want to be different. Forgeline. I have them. No one else on the forum have them. Everyone agrees that they are top shelf.

Nice wheels, but way too expensive for comparable wheels out there. Sort of like my wife buying $2K plus for a single purse. Too much name brand hype.

If you a girl as beautiful as our Z wearing a suit without pants, is that really such a bad thing?

You asked for opinion right? Just wanty to be clear here cuz...

All show and no go might be your thing. BUT, ricer is a slippery slope lol.
I'd agree with notes above foundation upgrade concentration first. To ME it would suck to have a fast looking car, that is stock slop on the run.

That said, I LOVE the Amuse front end, but wish they would incorporate some level of the DRLs. - Planning on a clip upgrade too... later
The exhaust choice should be plenty loud enough and decent throat
When you lower, even with just swift, you will need an alignment, and check to see your camber is still within tolerance - otherwise will need some links to bring it back in

start at the bottom of your list or get the kit last. Get that wheel set up and ride height perfect. After that, the car is set for aggressive style body parts.
