Default my first sports car

Hello Z veterans, I just joined the club after buying 06 350Z roadster.

it is my first sport car so expect lots of stupid questions and headache from me.

for now I just painted the rims but I still have lots of things I want to do.

some mild performance upgrades later on. but for now mainly aesthetics; I plan on replacing the lights with LED, give it a paint job and renew the interior.

It has some small problems but I guess it's better to talk about those in separate threads... after I use the search I know

Looks like you did a great job at painting the wheels.

Wheel spacers front/rear will really change the look for the better for about $100

Thanks for warm welcome everyone

I was thinking of adding spacers on the rear wheels, didn't think about the front

FWIW if you go with 10mm you can use your current lug bolts.

Welcome, I would not recommend putting LED bulbs into an HID housing. The light output will be poor.
