Welcome and keep us posted on your mods.thecablepro wrote:I just joined Nicoclub. My name is Ted Paisley aka TheCablePro. I bought a 2006 M35S in August of 2015 with 150,000 miles on it. Brakes were shot, ran sluggish, but 2nd owner had a stack of receipts from the dealer. Every time the car hiccuped he took it in. Figured it was something fixable and bought it cheap. Immediately installed midrange Powerstop rotors and pads, stops well now! Discovered the air cleaner was in there way too long, replaced it with K&N unit, runs like a champ.
Just received Tein H series springs today as well as KYB struts/shocks all the way around. Wasn't going to pony up $1400 for the OEM stuff. Called local dealer to verify that the non-sport struts/shocks would be compatible. I hope he's right. Guess I'll find out when I do the install this weekend. Want it just a bit lower with more stability but I hope it retains its relatively smooth ride.
Almost forgot, installed TBW engine tray in black. Wow! Love it! Stabilizes most of the plastic including the bumper cover. Took the silly, minuscule, broken front spoiler off and filed it in the round file under miscellaneous (trash can). Replaced front sway bar bushings and stabilizer links, feeling much more solid now. Went with the Moogs, like the smooth quiet ride. Am doing the same in the rear when I install the other new suspension parts.
Trying like hell to improve the mpg. The thing needs another gear or two. 3000 RPM at 80mph, not real efficient. Lotta fun for a pretty big car though. Hasta la vista.
Will post pictures when this round of upgrades is done. Looking forward to all that Nicoclub has to offer. Hope I can contribute as well.
Between me and you I might go back to 22s with the M Its taking me some time to adjust to not being on low profiles I still dodge potholes. Probably a good CAI too that Rover SC 2012 I had the other day for some reason the MPG didn't seem as bad as the M35 08 i'm only average 22 on the highway RR about 23. I definitely miss that Maxima but the M has proven to be more solid especially on the reliability.stm37s wrote:Welcome and nice ride, Maxima looked hot.

Thanks man! Usual term for it is a roof spoiler. Yeah this forum is really helpful to learn anything and everything for the MWillV wrote:blackY, love the roof spoiler/lip... Not sure what the technical term is. But I have a 2006 M35 Moonlight white/light tan interior. I have had it for nearly 3 years now, but just joined here.
