Hey all!

I thought I'd make a thread to keep my pics and updates in. :)

Only have a K&N Filter installed so far but I have many things I'd like to do. :4: Grille, Wheels, Exhaust and more! I may debadge the complete back soon too.

2007 Murano in Platinum
Navigation, Leather, HID, Backup Camera, Bose System w/ 6 CD Changer, Sunroof

(Pictures from this past weekend in Malibu, CA)





And here is a pic of my previous car...



2004 350Z with:
- JWT Pop Charger
- Dual Muffler Exhaust
- Full Alpine Stereo: Unit, Type R Components & Coaxials, Type S Subs, 2 Amps
- Axis Wheels: 18x8 Fronts, 18x10.5 Backs
- Billet Grille
- Nissan JDM Front Smoked Reflectors
- Tint: Taillights, Rear Blinkers, Windows


Thanks for looking! :25:

PA15-NIS was an easy install and works perfect! You definitely need a 2nd person to help with un/plugging in the connectors.

I stashed the unit and cables behind the radio. I removed the tiny light in dash below the radio and fed the cables through there so they're ready to go for any device.

Day after a nice wash and spur of the moment photo shoot. :)
(Quality isn't that great, sorry... iphone4) :(

I recently Plasti-Dip'd the lower chrome moldings, front and sides.









Next, I'm going to try to get the door handles, grille, and back bumper protector vinyl wrapped black. :12:

I finally got around to installing my new grille and Plasti-Dip'd the Nissan emblem. I love how it turned out! :4:

You've got a unique look going. I like it. I also particularly enjoy how you hide the license ... bow tie, mustache, etc...

I've been searching Craigslist like crazy for the past couple months for wheels and it paid off! I got a set of 22" KMC's on 265/40/22 Nitto's that only have about 3-4k on um. They came a little dirty but had to snap a pic. :)




I totally expected the ride to be different. Most people on here complain that 20's let alone 22's would be less comfortable. Complete BS! I can MAYBE feel a 2% difference but that could be in my head. I've been waiting for some harsh bumps but haven't had one in over 50 miles of driving.

I'm almost closing in on owning the Mo for a full year now. I totally love it!

I've put over 20,000 miles on over the last 11 months. :eek:

Installed a set of H&R Sport Springs. It's not as low as I'd like but at least the gap from fender to wheel is about the same all around now compared to the huge gap near the top and regular gap on the sides.

Thanks guys!

The springs are stiff. There's good and bad to having them. I don't have issues with the stiffness at all though, coming from a 350z and other lowered cars.

Turning is amazing. I can take turns over 20mph. I think that is really saving on gas and my mileage has gone up.
