This car originally started out as a simple daily driver, and has evolved into my ultimate project car. I didn’t want to take anything too far, just subtle touches here and there to compliment the existing look and performance of the car. It is by no means a race car and I won’t pretend that it is, but it is definitely not slow and can be hella fun to drive.

Most people know the car for it’s unique customized headlights and sequential tail lights that I researched and built on my own, both the first of their kind ever seen on a 7th gen Maxima. The car recently had some finishing touches added in the form of STILLEN’s bodykit and a custom fiberglass rear 4 fin diffuser, which I feel like really add to it’s aggressive overall look. All that’s really in the plans for it now is a quality BBK, coilovers, and looking at new rims next year to change things up.

Overall I love my 7th gen, it is the perfect daily driver that has become the ultimate project car for me.
