Hey folks, I am new to the forum and a proud owner of a 08 Altima V6 Coupe, I have recently got my car and want to get to the action asap. I am wondering what kind of mods would be great for starters. I am looking into intake, and exhaust work is there anything else I should look into? I would greatly appreciate the help of you fellow Nissan Altima owners. I am aware there is not to much options when it comes to after market parts for this vehicle, but does someone know if that will change in the future? Also another quick question I have a Silver 2DR, what colour rims do your suggest look good with silver?
Check out Stillen, they make a bunch of awesome parts for the coupes, and great customer service IMO.
If you're going to ramp up the engine i'd get some good brakes, the factory's are not the best on these cars.

5K is not a lot for a good paint job.
No matter what, aftermarket paint will never be as good as OEM. They can't bake it as Nissan can at the factory without stripping the car to the bare unibody.

Alright thanks for the insight guys, I'll look into the Stillen parts. How much would you say a good paint job is, iv heard numbers as high as $5k :O is this true?
A real paint job with good paint? I'd say $4k and up, depending on the paint and condition of the car
