What did you buy for your EX, this week?

Discussion of Infiniti's amazing (and underrated) sport-luxury crossovers, the EX35 and EX37. For 2014, the EX series will be renamed QX50, in line with Ininfiit's new naming conventions.

you don't need a kit. just go on ebay and buy some festoon and wedge, 12V leds. there are dozens of types, lumens and energy consumption differences. 5730 smd is the style I like the best. Nice and bright and white.

I bought these and upgraded 3 or 4 cars - all interior, license plate and driving lights...

Festoons:

Wedges:

I bought a package of the 5730 and will be doing mine when it warms up a bit. Was their a guide you used that walked you through how to switch them over? I haven't looked closely yet, but the front ones don't seem to just pop off to replace the bulb. I'll do a Google search, but thought I'd ask since you've done it. Also, how many did you need to replace all of them in your EX?

Thanks!

Finally changed my front rotors... (@ 94K miles)
They had a very slight pulse while braking at low low speeds that (after checking the forum) started the summer of 2016! Well, I kinda got used to it... fast forward to getting my EX a brother (QX30s) it really highlighted that my rotors needed a change... Got some raybestos rotors online for a great price and did the change in less than an hour. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Nice and smooth again. :)

Nothing exciting, but changed my oil and replaced my battery yesterday. Was sick and tired of having to get my car boosted on cold days. I also took out the battery tender thing the owner before me hacked in. It was drawing off my battery all the time and I'm sure is what killed it. Next on the list is the rest of the fluids this spring, some 20" summer tires and that'll be it for the EX.

Haven't done anything to my EX lately, but I picked up an 07 350Z Grand Touring Roadster last weekend. Really looking forward to the roads getting cleaned so I can bring it out of storage. A big change from the old s2k, but I think I'm gonna like it.

Not something I purchased, but was graciously given by NJGuy, a set a factory carpet floor mats, pair of HID bulbs, two oil filter with crush washers, and other goodies only asking to pass on the generosity and kindness. Brought the floor mats into work (I'm an automotive detailer) and gave them a good scrub and steam clean. Now they sit in the garage after applying some scotchguard to them in order to keep them as nice as I can.
I've been looking for factory floor mats since I got the car only being able to find some factory rubber ones on ebay for 80 bucks plus shipping awhile back and couldn't bring myself to spending that much on floor mats. Can't say enough how much I appreciate NJGuy for sending these over to me without even asking to pay for shipping. I can't wait for them to dry so I can take out the crappy fit generic mats I have in now!

Your words can only describe a small bit of the picture.
How about some before and after photos to show the full effect? (That is, if you're willing to show the uglier "before" pics. :) )

Sadly I didn't even think about getting before and after pictures. They cleaned up so nice though!

Just picked up and installed a DC Sports SRI4205 Polished Short Ram Intake System last night. It's made for the G35 with the vq35hr but everything bolted right up perfectly. Looks great and sounds good with a slightly more audible "woosh" when you tap the throttle and a pleasing almost blow off valve like air release kinda sound when shifting up from high rpm.
Next up is taking it to a custom exhaust shop for a high flow cat and then to a tuner.
