Coming from owning a 2006 350Z the X is a big difference! So far so good. I bought my X back in July of 2014, and have been quietly been lurking around here, as I begin to actually start the mods I decided it was finally time to at least get a build thread ready so I can just post as I go. I don't plan on going to crazy because it is my daily driver.

How well does the 20% tint match the rears? Was the tint on the rest the stock tint? It looks a lot darker than what I've got. I want to do the same but thought about doing a little darker on the rear side windows.
When I went to the tint shop and said I wanted to match the fronts to the rear and from what I was told factory tint is 20%. Id have to agree cause it matches pretty well... no complaints here. Not crazy dark so I can drive at night but dark enough you cant really see in (shadows) ...heres a pic..

Just in! PRG 2inch Front Spacers and Rear 2inch AAL with Cam Bolts and 3 degree shims! Cant wait to install :):)

I did the same kit. Let me know if you get Coil Bucket Contact. Mine smacks around all over the place. Mostly as slow speeds, its a pain in the ass and a bit embarrassing when I've got people in the truck. The ride is good and the stance is great, just wish it wouldnt hit the coil bucket.

Finally got around to doing an alignment. SPC arms are awesome, plenty of room between the arm and the coil bucket, and didn't even really need cam bolts (even though they're already in) Really need tires now! I don't know if i want KO2s or Duratracs though. Definitely getting 285s.
