halitosis: good point, I just added some cosmetics to my Z and paid slightly more than $450 total after paint, as Zero would say, for some pieces of plastic, painted. Maybe I should think more about the roof spoiler.

If ANY of the 350Z's that RACE their Z's used one, I'd have one. But, none of the pro teams do that I am aware of, sooooooooooo. I'd pass.

Mods for LOOKs only are Rice Mods.

IMO yes. Function over form for me. A stock 350Z looks GREAT as is. Why f*ck it up with silly add ons that don't improve it's performance.


I wear Nomex!

I am usually a proponent of roof spoilers, but I am just not sure if this car can handle one. I need to see more pictures, taken by people on the board and not Stillen.

They usually look better on cars with a back window that heads down a little more. The 350z rear window is damn near horizontal. It looked perfect on my E36 M3, and of course the old Celica Supras

350zEVO states on their website that the overall design of the Z's outer contours does not necessitate the use of GT-style wings. Maybe this is true at track racing and autoX speeds, but on JGTC 500hp speeds, I beg to differ.

Still, more relevant to this discussion, the Stillen window wing is obviously a personal touch that is marginally appealling aesthetically but offers nothing in the way of aero downforce. Real downforce is not going to come from a rear lip-style wing that is 2-3 inches wide.

So if I add a set of side skirts I am a ricer? Man thats pretty narrowminded. I've done performance too but fi I dont like the look of a stock Z i hardly think decent mods are considered on par with fart can exhaust civics

On a serious note, tasteful cosmetic mods dont make your car a ricer... even more in a car like the Z which is already has the power, obviously the more power the better. IMO a slow car like a honda shouldn't be cosmetically modded too much without modding it preformance wise too.

[QUOTE=nicolaycastro]+1 specially stickers, like the one in your avatar QUOTE]

Yes, it's a bit ricy, but I back it up with Nismo parts.....Clutch, Preasure plate, Cat Back exhaust, & GT LSD! Floormats to come....when I wear out my Z mats!

There's also a bit of marketing involved.......MIGHT draw attention to my company's BCR Harness Bar!
