i too love them. simple, not too agressive but still very mean.

im not to happy with the stillen lip, but its affordable and does a bit better than the stock lip. the stillen lip looks better with the stillen canards tho, hope it works well on your nice setup. and looks are a matter of opinion, this just happens to be only my opinion ;) not trying to dog ya for your choice, its very reasonable!

btw what color will the front splitter be painted?

I'm not normally a fan of canards, but those look OEM! Any idea if they actually improve front downforce? And is it at the expense of much drag?

I was toying with the idea of a carbon grill, but ideally I would want one that retains a factory look chrome strip to delineate the grill from the bumper. I don't like chrome, but I think the factory strip does do a good job in splitting the two parts.

if you look the mines one has a ridge most carbon grills don't, this adds definition to the grill shape. it might not be picked up in the photo's but you see it on the car

that's why I went for it :)


I hope the splitter doesn't ruin it

Thanks to matty/miguel for sorcing the canards...

the canards are simular to the next revision of the gtr so they don't do much but they are in the right place

posting pic's up of your own car is like saying "do you think my wife is attractive? :)

look I must have thought about the nismo sticker placement for at least 2 mins, copied where Nismo put it on their 350z

The ridge is about halfway down the grill isn't it? Yes it does make it look more eye-catching than if it was just the stock grill reproduced in carbon.
If only Mine's wasn't so damn expensive...
