Question Infiniti G35

I have an Infiniti G35 and I was wondering what everyone thought about it as a car and what you think would look good on my car. And this might not be a good thing but, I also want to know some things I can do to my car to make it faster.
F.Y.I. my car looks exactly like it would when you buy it off the dealership lot. The avatar I have looks almost exactly like mine...only difference is that mine is white.

Id lower it, lip kit, nice big wheels 19x9 rear 18x8 front, with a deep dish, and tint. for performance, get an exhaust for it, as well as an intake. Fujita air intakes are a great start.

Well here's my thoughts, if you want better looks and performance, you need to be careful. If you're adding on weight with giant dished rims, and whatever else for looks, then there isn't going to be a real good reason to dump money into performance.

So here's what I'd say for looks:
-Slight drop, maybe get a nice set of adjustable coilovers, allows you to change the ride height easier.
-Bigger rims, but not dished, and lightweight.
-Tint the shit out of it. 3% metallicized black if you can find it, looks dark as hell, and the colour won't fade, usually warrantied for life.

Performance, as newyorker said, exhaust and intake is definitely a good start. As it's a new car, I'd be leery about doing anything too major, as you might be looking at voiding your warranty.

If you want to see a large selection of parts, and what I find to often be one of the lowest costing places on the net, check out sportcompactonly

Do not go coilovers. A big misconception is you can just change ride height whenever you want. Alot of people dont know that every time you adjust your ride height evn just slightly, you need an Alignment. I say just get a good set of drop springs and matched (thats the key) and then install it get it alignment and leave it alone.

ALso tint and nice wheels. I say go 18s.

Yea. Coilovers to get a good ride, you have to buy very expensive ones and tweak the ride height and damping (if available) and its still too expensive. I prefer my shocks and springs that work very well
