For the longest time, the concept of having an affordable sports performance coupe was practically unheard of, as these types of vehicles commanded the highest price tags that only few could afford. During the 1960s, Nissan was still a fledgling Japanese automaker who did not have much when it came to competition with the other auto giants like Toyota and Honda. It was then that developed the Z-car, which was a high performance sports coupe with a very affordable price tag.
The Z-car, also known as the Fairlady Z, has evolved since its inception into one of the most popular cars on the road today. This sports coupe is now in its sixth generation and still going strong, with many people opting for this car because of its relatively affordable price, performance ability, and sleek design. This generation is known as the 370Z with an aggressive body and fitment, proving to be very popular among the younger generation of drivers. Because of this, the 370Z is part of the JDM Movement, where Japanese cars are modified so that they have different stylistic features and fitment characteristics than what you would find in stock factory cars.
The 370Z is like an artist’s canvas, as there are tons of modifications that can be done to make this vehicle look as unique as possible. Owners have a huge range of possible products they can choose to make their Z-car more unique, from new body kits to wheels and all the way to lighting apparatuses. One interesting body style of the factory 370Z is the square shaped rear reflector. For a car that practically has everything, like stylistic and performance upgrades, it seems like the manufacturers forgot all about the rear reflector, since it’s just a red plastic piece with nothing in it at all.
Fortunately, there is something called the LED rear fog light for the Nissan 370Z that exists out there that completely transforms that lackluster reflector into something unique. The LEDs inside the assembly can flawlessly transition from tail lights, brake lights, and even reverse lights with the slight tap of your pedals or the shifter. While this LED set is still a relatively well kept secret among 370Z owners, it seems that more and more people are discovering this setup so to make their sports cars look different from everyone else’s cars on the road.
While Nissan is a common sight to see on the road, it’s actually becoming quite popular to have people modify their cars so that the vehicle has a more personal touch. Next time you are out on the road, you can try to spot as many modified cars as you can.
