I'm new to this site, as I don't actually own an X yet. I'm picking up an 06 Charcoal X Off Road 4x4 MT (2 inch BL) with the Fosgate Stereo and 07 I-pod connection on saturday. Other upgrades I plan on over the next year are sliders and maybe some better skid plates. Also, I found this website that offers Dash trim kits:

I'll probably put in the polished nickel. Anyway, I'm still debating what kind of intake and exhaust. Sounds like most people are happy with the Gibson 2.5" exhaust.... how about intake? Nissan's website offers aftermarket parts such as intake (375.00 installed) and headers (675.00 intalled). I've heard the headers are not worth the money, but not much feedback about the intake. Any thoughts on this?

Welcome to the site! Are you doing the BL or is the dealer?

thanks for the welcome!
I'm having the dealer do the BL, as they will warranty it. Plus, I've talked them down to doing it for 450.00 (which i think is a decent deal).
I appreciate the feedback on the intake. I'm looking for a better sound and hopefully a slight improvement on MPG. I think I'll give the NISMO a try.
