First Mods you did to the G

Hello folks was just wondering what were some of the first mods or things you bought for your new g35 you purchased. I like taking my time researching and doing tasteful mods no ricer ****, so far I have done leds all for the g35 except the vanity and glovebox. I want to buy led foglights anyone know how hard it is to change out the bulbs, also want to buy a intake but I have to sell my full subwoofer setup from my old car, I was also thinking of debadgeing my black sedan.

I did the LED's on mine first too. Then i put performance brakes and pads on her and Painted my Calipers the same color as the LED's. If youre gonna debadge it, make sure you wax it as soon as possible. I have a black Coupe and when i did mine, i washed and waxed it right away and i didn't end up with any ghost badges.

My first mod was exhaust. Every time I get a new car, first thing I do is get rid of the stock exhaust. Even if its an economy car, truck, anything. "Noise laws" prevent car companies from installing anything other than absolute restrictive garbage on any car from the factory. I can't stand stock exhausts.

So essentially you modified the exhaust, you didn't replace it?

After car ordered, purchased clear corners and drilled sport pedal covers which were installed day after car delivered.

First performance mod was a Vortech SC after 8 MOS and 7800 Miles on car.

Well considering the main parts of the exhaust (after the cats) were replaced, I'd say I replaced it. The only parts I reused were the tips and pipe before the resonator.
