The grille is vinyl wrapped except for the emblem. That had to be painted because it is too curvy for vinyl.

Dude... Your ride keeps looking better! Quick question, how do u like that chrome grille part with vinyl wrap? My guys here told me that the vinyl wrap may have a problem with sticking to the top matted part on the chrome. So we may plasti dip it and wrap it in carbon fibre. Let me know please!

Thanks I appreciate that! Its funny you bring that up because my guy told me the same thing. He said he will wrap it but will not warranty it. So far it has held up just as good as everything else but it has only been like 2-3 weeks so im not sure how it would hold up long term. I personally think itll be fine as long as your gentle in that area while washing.

That's a lot of "dark", but your wheels are tons better than with the gold. That just didn't look right.

Nice job!

Im not the moderator but I will tell him to update it. I did 35% all around on all my cars and the cops in NY dont bother me but your state may vary. 35% is not too dark or light IMO and keeps the cops away.

suspension ride quality!

Faze, how do the Eibach springs ride? would you recommend them or should I wait for a full coilover kit to come out later on? I really want to lower my 2016 Max but don't want to have a bumpy/bouncy ride since I have kids. Thanks for your response in advance.

I had Eibach Pro's on my Altima Coupe and they rode like Stock just lower. I hear the issue with the maximas is getting the camber/toe dialed in front and rear.

If you are worried about ride quality then springs are defintely the way to go. In my own experience coilovers have a rougher ride then springs and are more aimed towards performance and looks than comfort. All my friends that get in my car are amazed. "They say wow your on 20's and lowered? It doesnt feel like it at all." That says it all. Ride quality is awesome and you get better handling. Also they are not too low. The rodes around me suck and i have yet to bottom out even driving aggresive. Im a true believer in springs! Hope this helps. Let me know how it goes.

After springs everything was in spec except my rear camber which was off by like .7 degrees which is nothing to worry about at all.

Both of those cars are beautiful! I'm biased toward Pearl White so I definitely want that one with the pano roof! The 20's fit the car exceptionally well.

The ride is really good on the prokit springs. Thanks for the earlier advise. Also I am loving your new wheels.

Haven't updated this thread in a while even though Ive done quite a bit of mods. Since my last update I had the entire car vinyl wrapped in a nice grey color that resembles audis nardo grey. Ive installed a 370z Akebono BBk in red and also installed Tein coilovers to eliminate tire gap. Let me know what you guys think!

On the caliper can you use the maxima rotors or have to use 370z ? Need brackets for calipers or direct fit?
