2006 Nissan 350z – 6MT Touring

Was there any unusual circumstances around how you acquired your car?
After selling my 2003 Nissan 350z, I purchased a 2009 bMW 335i , it had the infamous n54 engine. It was full bolts-on mhd stage 2 , by far the fastest car I ever owned but was just a nightmare in terms of maintenance and parts failing all the time so I end up trading for my current 350z.

Was there more work on your car than you anticipated? Did you find a bucket of wiring worms, find some secret hidden problems…..
I just had to change my clutch and change all the fluids.

Are there any unique mods on your car? Hyper-rare parts, custom made parts…
It’s not really a mod, but the OEM color of my car it’s very unique and rare , it’s called Interlagos fire (L40) for those wondering.

Would you consider your car done in its current form? Or do you have a list of “to dos” still left? 
Definitely not , my plan is to build this into a drift/street car in the future.

Are you apart of a club or crew with your car? How has that influenced your build?
I’m part of NIclub , it’s the local Nissan/Infiniti car club here in Vancouver, Canada.
It’s cool to be able to see other builds and talk to other enthusiasts to get some ideas.
