List your TWO most useful / best / favourite mods that you've
done to the Z.

It will be interesting to see which mods get the wraps the
most often - their overall initial popularity v. their long-term
acceptance and popularity.

Add pics if that helps.

Leather colour coding $700

Wheel spacers - Look great, DYNAMIC improvement in handling/feel $500 approx

My rims are my absolute FAVE (see sig)



Next fave has to be either the CF in the engine bay or my intake/exhaust combo which sounds GREAT!!!!!

Catback exhaust.

Makes more of the rev range usable, and adds a sports car sound to an otherwise quiet car.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

The Bluetooth handsfree kit is also pretty cool.

Just leave the Bluetooth radio activated on the phone, and you can leave the phone in your pocket so you never forget to take it with you. It automatically synchs when you power on the car, and unsynchs a minute after you leave the car.

I have only dealt with cosmetic enhancements and suspension so far.

I'd have to say that my Eibach springs were my best choice as far as enhancing the performance of the car as well as looks. The inch drop helps lower the center of gravity, makes the car look tons better, and I've even heard it can help the feathering problem.

My second choice would have to be my sway bars. With the bars and the springs, the car just sticks through every turn with no body roll and gives me much more confidence in what the car will handle.

A few more mods I have that have helped are my Hawk brake pads and JWT Popcharger. The brake pads cut down on brake dust by at least 80% off of the terrible stock pads, and my JWT intake gave the engine a whistle at low rpms and a growl at WOT. I would buy the intake again for the sound even if it didn't give me a single hp.

I also believe that the best mod you can put on a stock car is a good set of tires. There is nothing like a really sticky set of autocross tires. They will hold you on the road when you thought your stock tires would never hold up. Then again, they wear faster, can have more road noise, and are usually not good for rain either.

My vote would be for cams and non-resonated test pipes.
