Update
Fitted my new fron C/F splitter/lip just over a week ago.... and my luck again - that splitter is for the standard (GT) bumpers, not the Nismo ones <!-- s:evil: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_evil.gif" alt=":evil:" title="Evil or Very Mad" /><!-- s:evil: --> so we had to cut some bits off my bumper <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->






Spare bits <!-- s:lol: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_lol.gif" alt=":lol:" title="Laughing" /><!-- s:lol: -->


Then fitted new lip and fibreglassed onto the bumper


End result:



Then my luck got even better...few days after fitting it I hit a rabbit at 80mph (on a private road) which cracked new lip right in the middle <!-- s:evil: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_evil.gif" alt=":evil:" title="Evil or Very Mad" /><!-- s:evil: --> f*cking pissed off!
So new plan is - get a GT bumper and another new lip, spray new bumper right color and smooth out Nissan badge at same time.

More bad luck... lol Coilovers and new wheels meant to be fitted 2 weeks ago... Wrong set of coilovers was ordered/suppled...as the company even didnt know that there is more than one type of suspension on 350. So had to send kit back, wait for a refund and new set of HSD coilovers was ordered from DriftWorks and arving tomorrow:)
Tyres never turned up on time as well, but got them now. Also ordered some Eibach wheel spacers and lightweight wheel nuts.



Next rreally tempted with Japspeed k1 exhaust system (cat back for now, then new race manifold, new Y-pipe and de-cat pipes)

Hope you like :)

Looks and sounds like shit.

I joke, looks so good with that lip, and that exhaust system sounds amazing!

Need spacers and lowering, which you're doing, and some thick black wheels I think! :)
