A while back this Infiniti G37 Coupe came into the shop to put the finishing touch on this car to make it look right. Already sporting a set of custom wheels for G37 and an upgraded G37 Exhaust System, there was one thing sorely missing: a drop. Even if you have the sickest wheels in the world, it may look a bit off unless you eliminate the wheelgap as well so your G can look its best.

To give this G the stance it needed to eliminate the nasty wheelgap in the G37 suspension, the Mod Experts installed a set of KW V3 Coilovers for Infiniti G37. Coilovers offer the ability to adjust your ride height to get exactly the stance you want.

Here’s how the KW V3 Coilovers looked installed up front. The Variant 3 version of these coilovers features multi-way adjustable shocks for precision handling control.

Infiniti_G37_Ark_Exh_KW_V3_Forgestar_CF5V_GM-3As we’ve said before, the stock G37 exhaust is simply too quiet to properly enjoy the sonorous V6 under the hood of these cars, so we’ve changed up the sound and performance of this G with an exhaust system from ARK Performance.

With mandrel bent tubing, Y-pipes and a unique rear chamber design, the ARK Performance GRIP Exhaust for Infiniti G37 really wakes up the VQ37VHR, letting the motor sing like it should. At the same time, it’s also been designed for minimal drone when cruising for an exhaust system that’s great to live with.

The burnt stainless tips of the ARK system really give the rear end a lot more “pop” and visual character, giving the car some much needed flair – and also gives the car a distinctly ‘tuner’ look.

Sitting low on Forgestar Wheels, the G37 has a much more menacing, aggressive look, and the gunmetal finish matches the car’s paint beautifully.

The concavity of the CF5Vs is especially evident from this angle, the curves of the wheel’s design compliments the G37’s flowing, organic curves for a very clean look. The stance is aggressive, but not “slammed”.

After fitting the coilovers, enough things needed adjustment that an alignment was in order – as you can see our flush with the floor alignment rack allows even lowered cars to get an alignment with ease, and the shop at ModAuto offers 4-wheel alignments on our Hunter Alignment system from just $139, and we even offer corner-balancing services for you hard-core track guys.

The simple addition of wheels, suspension and an exhaust system has transformed the Infiniti G37 from something bland into something aggressive and beautiful. Unfortunately we didn’t get the opportunity to get more photos, but even in just these few photos, you can easily see the enormous difference it makes.
