Default PICTURES!! Blacked out grille, de-badged and K&N Typhoon Intake Kit

Hey guys, over the weekend I did some minor mods to my Altima. I plasti diped the grille and de-badged it completely. I also installed the K&N Typhoon intake, I really felt the difference today on the highway. Sounds great too. I thought I would share it with some pictures.

Default De-badged

These are the shots of the rear. No badges and blacked out the chrome on the trunk, also the K&N Typhoon.

De-badging is usually the easiest of all mods, but it makes sure a difference!

It sure was easy, especially since the car is new I don't think the adhesive had fully set in. I was able to remove them without a heat gun, just fishing line. Love the clean look it gives it. Some new tail lights will finish it off.

Nice ride man, I am not a big fan of de-badging but otherwise I like it.

I wasn't either. My previous car was a de-badged 745 and I hated it. I also thought about it for the sole reason that its a V6 badge I removed, but I don't regret it. I like the clean look, plus its a very minor thing. I can always slap those badges back on. Thanks.

Glad to hear you like the K&N.
It would have been so much better if the shroud would have mated with the fresh air intake to fresh air would get to the filter directly.
