My dealership finally convinced me to get one.

Excited to start this journey, It's been a long time since I had a nice car I was excited about. Just picked up this 2013 G37x with only 20k miles on it from the Infiniti dealership I work for. Prior to this I've been driving junkers as dailies and tend to use my motorcycle for performance and fun. Already been watching YouTube videos of small and large stuff to do with these guys. I bought it certified used so for now I'll be keeping stuff mostly cosmetic. First order of business is going to be blacking out the grill and chrome accents. I really like the look of lips so will be looking into one of those as well.

Multiple choices for lips both front and back, side skirts, hoods, trunks, wings, wheels, led upgrades. There seems to be a good amount of support for these. My last fun car was a dodge neon srt4 which did t have much at all.

I have to check into it and see if a axle back will void my warranty. I want some rumble.

Axle back won't affect your warranty.

If there were other choices no, but I live in upstate NY. So choices were real slim I actually went and looked at a new Honda civic SI and stopped by my dealership because we just took in a wrx but It was beat up. My GM offered me this for $24.5 and compared to anything else it was the best deal. It's super clean and previous owner was in his 60s. Might be a little cliche but I've got tinted vinyl for the taillights and headlights. I'll be blacking the car out. Already looking into the topspeed muffler deletes. I think those sound awesome compared to a lot of the aftermarket exhausts.

i got the Blue Batmobile (not opaque) tinted GTR tail vinyls, and they look really nice on a black car. the full opaque ones look a little ricey, IMHO, but the tinted look great.

my car already came with a midnight grille, so i just plastidipped the upper and lower chrome strips, and used Glossifier on them.

if you're in Syracuse, you might want to look into another set of wheels and snow tires for the stock wheels. also, Fluid Film the underside to keep it from rusting.

I've used POR15 in the past for rust repair and it works great underneath cars too I'll be sanding down some stuff and coating it with that. I'm trying to grab a winter beater so this doesn't have to deal with a NY winter. Ordered a carbon fiber rear spoiler and looking into a paint matched lip for the front. I found wheels but trying not to spend all my money right now hahaha.
