Nothing performance oriented, just ordered a few parts we didn't feel like paying dealer price for. On the way are Kia all-weather rubber floor mats, a Kia Forte windshield sun shield, a protective film for the Nav touch screen, and a green hard case for the smart-key.

Future plans include painting the calipers before they start to develop surface corrosion, window tint, maybe paint the exhaust piping for the same reason as the brakes, LED reverse and license plate bulbs.

First thing we really to need fix is the driver's seat belt adjustment, it is stuck in place and the service center was closed when we took delivery.

Whoo hoo, new toys. Nothing spectacular but you gotta start somewhere. How about some pics of that G35 you got??
My wife isn't into the whole car mod thing, so the 5 won't be seeing much beyond what I listed. The most it will get in the future is a set of wheels.

Here's my G35:




Mods are as follows:
Forgestar F14 Gloss Black wheels, 19x10+20 front and 19x11+23 rear
Hankook Ventus Evo V12 tires, 285/30/19 front and 305/30/19 rear
Tokico D-spec struts with Cobb Tuning Springs and sways
Circuit Sports front strut tower bar
SPC adjustable rear camber arms
Centric slotted rotors with StopTech pads, Motul RBF600 fluid, SS-lines
Nismo finned rear diff cover
Motordyne Engineering dual-Ti shockwave exhaust (a G/Z specific tuner)
custom DIY power steering cooler with Redline synthetic ATF fluid
trans and diff use Amsoil fluids.
TWM A1 Abrams weight shift knob
DIY'd painted grille and 06+ headlight housings
one beat up front bumper from years of hard driving and being low

It is still a work in progress.
