So here is day one.  Got her shipped in from Kenosha, WI by truck, this is before I even had the keys in hand.



I was about to drive to Canadian Tire to get my winters put on (my neighbor works there and took my wheels to work to do me a favor so I wouldn’t be changing them over in my freezing cold garage).  Got stuck on the front street and had to get it towed.. hahaha



Enough about winter, no one likes to hear about winter. Here she is all stock and cleaned up.



Wasn’t feeling the stock HIDs, so to change them you need to remove the entire bumper, yuck. 8000k is worth the effort however. Also threw in some clear corners with white bulbs.



Then she needed an upgrade to her clogged lungs. Went Borla cat-back, and decided while it’s being done, might as well get headers out of the way.






Also went straight pipe, no point going half way.




She also wanted some new shoes, so she gets what she wants.




I wasn’t really feelin on her booty (R. Kelly reference anyone?), so she got a buttlift.




The audio wasn’t quite doing it for me, so I decided to get a few little things, like a 12” itty bitty sub, and a 500w amp.  Kicker has stepped up their game. This sub is like 3.5 inches thick, and pounds harder than most 10” subs.



Put it in where my spare tire would be, no need for a spare when you’re on 20’s, CAA saves the day.



Thennn one day I decide to go tanning at TanFX in the winter time, come out to this.  WOMP WOMMMP



Considering every G in the city has a stock bumper (that I’ve seen), I went a different route. Also grabbed a grille just for fun.



Here’s a little before and after.  Yes, I know.. It looks super deluxe pork-fried rice right now with the unpainted mesh.. I asked them to do it and they forgot.. I also got the inside of my headlights painted matte black at this point.



Here's the new bumper, with sexy winter rubber still on... haha

      Beauty. Looks so clean. Gotta hate changing bulbs on the g/z cars though.

              Little do people know, but the bottom of the bumper's design is actually inspired off a Honda Odyssey lol.

                                Hell yes, love the front bumper. Im feeling the gray mesh, but if it were blacked out it would look mint to. Flows nice with the upper grill so it keeps her clean, how a G35/ 37 should be kept. Excellent choice on the exhaust to, nice and throaty. Great touch with that painted rear valance, cleans it up really nice.
                                Gotta say, Dave (AC SLATER) and yours are the top G's on my list. Gonna lower yours anymore?

Flows nice with the upper grill so it keeps her clean, how a G35/ 37 should be kept. Excellent choice on the exhaust to, nice and throaty. Great touch with that painted rear valance, cleans it up really nice.
                                            Gotta say, Dave (AC SLATER) and yours are the top G's on my list. Gonna lower yours anymore?

                                            I'd love to lower, but it's my dd in winter as well, so unless i find a ****box for winter, I'll probably leave it as is.  Dave? As in white G ings sides carbon diffuser blue volks? Haha

                                                Yeah that makes sense, Ive driven a lowered car in the Winter, city shouldve paid me to plow the streets lol. And yup thats the one. I like a clean car, love his. Yours is mint and I know of another one in the city that I like a lot, its red. But dot know the owner, I see it time from time in my area. Otherwise I see just the typical G35/ 37 thats stock and thats boring or sadly its all "blinged" and donked out and thats hideous.
