Default New exterior styling for z34's

the yellow is by fujimura called the rocket dancer and red is by ings+1 n-SPEC

fujimura has various parts for the z34 (interior alcantra etc) and this isn't the only exterior kit.

I like the ings kit, it looks much better than the nismo.

IMO,design wise,the z34 in the OEM state is pretty much done on the exterior side.
There are some design mods that can be added.However,onemust be careful or
very quickly the car can look overdone.The huge wing on the ings (red car)just
overpowers the car.It seems that Nissan has a track record of coming up with a great
initial design then with later models adding on biys&pieces to destroy the original
design.
Sometimes,less is more.

"less is more" is a very true statement....although I'm not too big of a fan of the Z34 styling I agree with what you're saying! INGS+1 N-SPEC line are usually for track car builds so thats probably why it looks "over the top". IMO Stillen has been the most impressive for me.

I actually saw the ings+1 kit, the guy said it was the real deal (in black)....it actually looks good so idk, but color does matter sometimes on these kits.

Anyways look at varis they just came out with this one, the rear and wing look good not sure about the front.

The Nismo 370Z looks better than any of these IMO.

There's not a whole lot of lip kits for the 13+ model years. Carbon Signal and Ings+1 are the only ones so far that make them. If I had to choose, I'd go with Ings+1.

agreed! especially if you lower it just a bit more, it ends up looking much more aggressive

Sorry to say, but OP, those pics with red and yellow Z are terrible.
Then again, your taste, your car. Good luck.

None of the kits flow with the overall design of the car.

^ Fixed. LOL That cheezy lip kit is not a body kit. The lines don't flow well with the stock body at all IMO. It looks like the kind of gaudy crap you see on Civics and DSM's.

LMAO, thanks man. Lips or Full spoiler/bumper replacements...are technically body kits to me since they add or change the look of the cars image.

I do agree that the one thing I don't like about the kit is the front bumper, I didn't notice the LED's until now. Looks very fried ricey!

Agreed; Nismo and Stillen IMO are the only one's I would buy. The R's Tuning also has a replica of the Ben Sopra GTR look for the 370z, but that should be only put on a wickedly tuned Z34.

IMO a real body kit at a minimum includes replacement front and rear bumpers plus side skirts. Not just a front lip and rear valence with a gingerbread pseudo diffuser. A full or complete body kit should include fenders, as well as optional hood, spoiler and/or functional diffuser too.

The Stillen is hideous but if you like it… good for you. Have you seen a Zele?
