Need Ideas for new car

Ok, so I am at the point where the focus is going to have to sit while being worked on. She's at FORD right now getting a once over before I start the internals. So I have to buy a new car, no worries there. I bought this and now I dont know what the hell to do with it. I need rims cause the factory rims are crap, but does anyone know anything about these cars performance wise cause I know nadda...


all ideas are welcome at this point....It's a G35 2006

It's a big 350Z basically. Nice car actually. I don't know much about the aftermarket performance scene though. Personally, I really like the optional 5 spoke wheels out of the factory. Those are nice looking.

If I were U, I would accept tha fact that it's a nice sporty cars and U can do whatever U want to with the focus, U might want to pay attention the G35, and take advantage with some performance parts.

I would like to play a little....of course. However yes the 4 doors are for the baby I have on the way, so no NOS. My focus will be under going work for some time. We just switched the cam and a few other pieces to put her into the 14's so she can only get faster from there. I checked the WHP specs and weight of the vehicle, with a little math this thing will run 15 flat bone stock so I'm thinking a little will go a long way.

Nice to be back sir. I figured I would lay low until I could get the C9 to a track to put an end to all the hoop-la. Hence it has been done.. 1/4 mile times poll in Duratec Chat has just been updated.
