Default Which mods for my G37

My wife is gonna buy me some car mods for fathers day. In my budget I have a set of suspension springs or some OEM paddle shifters. I think the paddles would make the car more fun to drive but the springs will help in handling. What do you guys think I should do?

Doesn't have a back seat for my child. Otherwise I would be on a BRZ like white on rice.

Till you use them for a while. The vette I owned had them. I found it old after a while. Think how many times you would have to flap those things to get to the local store. Plus its one more thing to go wrong and cost a grip to fix.

Good set of springs not only looks good! But makes the car handle better.
And its cheap!

But I thought C-grunt was looking to get out of his car? no?

I was looking to get out but Im Way upside down in this thing and I wasn't able to find anyone who was willing to make less profit and deal with me.

The paddle shifters wouldn't need to be used all the time. My problem is that finding a manual G37 is damn near impossible unless you order a new one. If I get paddles I can at least kick it over to Drive Sport mode and have some fun.

Another thing I have been looking at is a custom exhaust. The G37 sounds sick with a catback and usually gains about 12-15 whp too.

Really the back seat size isn't the biggest problem. It's my back crapping out on me when I have to bend, twist and crawl into the car while putting the kid in. That's why I got rid of my 06 WRX to begin with.

Then on top of that the VA is just about worthless and treat me like I'm lying about my back, knee and intestinal problems. I swear they think high explosives are good for your health.

Its all good. I do the same thing with my 3 year old. And it sucks. I have noticed the doctors in AZ really suck it hard about stuff now days.

Just this last week I got blown off by two different ER's . I used to think Kaiser in California was bad. **** Now I would love to have them.

I have a pretty good hook up in parts now days. And I agree the best sounding car on the road is the G37 with a exhaust system. I heard one down the freeway few days ago. I was like WTF is this... I thought it sounded better then a Ferrari.

Sounds like a angry chewbaca! Love the vq exhaust note.

I say exhaust if that's in the budget
