anyone have a 5th aftermarket wheel? I might get another one and modify the trunk so it fits like stock as a spare, diameter won't be an issue, but the width of the wheel will make the carpet sit up higher and uneven, which can easily be fixed with a few blocks of foam like they already have in there....the VDC equipped cars like mine came with the 5th full size alloy wheel, so i figure keep it going. anyhow, tested 7 different whiskeys tonight ranging from scotch to rye, 4 years to 15 years aged, much tougher than wine tasting

I got a good shot today. At Stillen they lifted and installed my sway bar so I got some decent pictures of the underside of the car. They looked like towing hook things but I guess they weren't. The red circles show the parts that I have bent and or scraped

I've scraped my mufflers also but not those brackets that you did, I'll be lowering my car soon(my springs are sitting in my back seat) so I know it'll only get worse.

Check this thread for the Stillen pictures
Nissan Enthusiast Forums - Stillen '08 Aftermath and Pic Thread

I know some people wanted pictures of the bottom of the car but I don't feel like looking for that thread so I'll just put them here

good pics there at the stillen meet, those gt-r's are making me jealous. I ordered some of those stealth bulbs for the turn signals today, no more amber bulbs soon, they're gonna be a pain to put in, I should get the HID kit for the fogs and just get that done

The GT-R's exhaust isn't all that loud.

ok so i was going to get some HID fogs but decided not to spend the money just in case i decide to get the stillen front eventually, most likely i wont get the front, but you never know. don't get me wrong, i love it, but it is still just my daily driver sedan and it will get traded in one day. so i got these PIAA ion yellow "2500K" halogen bulbs, there was another brand that was much cheaper, but they were 100W, and the PIAA were 55W like the factory bulbs. hopefully they are plenty yellow, that's what i'm goin for, should look good with the factory HID lights. should be fun putting those in

How you guys doing?
I have been looking all over for Side window deflectors but can't find it anywhere for my 2008 Altima sedan. If any one can help me that would be nice. Thanks.

Thank for the tip.
Why did you say no way? Don't you think it will look good with deflectors?

Its easy as hell... You dont even need to take the bumper all the way off. you can leave the splash sheild on the bottom and just hang it there.

i took the bumper off today, pretty easy, i did notice i did not have to take it all the way off to change our the bulbs..it was just easier, and i figured why not so i know how to in the future. Also i took out the factory air duct piece today, it was just flopping around in there and sitting on a hot piece of metal. it really does nothing without suction from the sealed factory airbox since no direct flow hits it from the outside and it is blocked off from the grill...picture for fun
