Classy like a "G"
Brandon first picked up his G35 brand new back in 2005 and a couple of months later the transformation from stock to ill began. The first thing most people might notice are the 20" Work VS-XX Crystal Silver wheels which measure out to be 20x9.5 +4 in the front and 20x10.5 +6 in the rears. To close the gap and make those Works look even better, he went with Zeal Function D coilovers accompanied by SPL front and rear camber arms and Hotchkis front and rear sway bars. If you pay close attention to detail you will notice that Brandon has changed out his front bumper with the Nismo V3 front bumper and replaced his front grill also. 06 Front Xenon Projectors and 06 tail lights were also added to complete the exterior.
With the help of Sound Waves in Memphis, Brandon began his journey to a legit sound system. He opted to go with a Pioneer 4100 In Dash TV with 2 12" JL Audio W3s, Pioneer 1000watt 2 channel, Diamond Audio 600watt and JL Audio 6.5 components 6x9 three way. A Viper Smart Alarm System was also added to help protect his investment.
While I was setting up my camera equipment, Brandon requested some engine pics and once he lifted his hood I was immediately impressed with how clean the engine was. My eyes were immediately drawn to the polished upper plenum and Takeda short ram. Things done to help give the G some go and deepen the tone include an M2 Performance exhaust and y pipe accompanied by Invidia test pipes.
I asked Brandon of his future plans with the G and he smiled and said either a Turbo Kit or Bags. Regardless of which route he decides to go with, I think the end result would come out to be pretty good. Brandon also wants to give shoutouts to Sound Waves and Word of Mouth Detail!
Enjoy the pictures and video. Also want to say thanks to my boy Coop for helping out with the shoot.
