Since Datsun originally introduced the 240Z in 1970, Nissan’s Z-cars have continued to evolve with the times and their popularity has continued to increase. They may well have got bigger and heavier over the years, but the original true, raw, driving spirit has remained throughout.

It’s crazy to think it’s already been 17 years since the 350z first entered production. Nissan’s mini muscle car took the world by storm when it was initially released with its bargain price tag starting at just $27k – brand new and fresh out the factory.

Fast forward those 17 years, and we have a bargain-priced stunning two-seater rear-wheel-drive roadster with sleek body lines which have stood the test of time. In fact, let’s be honest, it still looks better than almost everything which is rolling out of showrooms in the present day.

Not only does it have its good looks, the 350z could one day go down in history as being one of the final true JDM ‘drivers cars’ to ever be produced. Sure, we’ve had the likes of Toyota’s GT86 in the meantime, which is a rare exception, but finding a reasonably priced brand new, good-looking natural feeling two-seater sports car is becoming increasingly hard to come by.

Those of you that are lucky enough to own, or have driven, a 350z will know how it still manages to capture that genuine true driving spirit. From the weight of the steering through to the precise mechanical feel to the gearshift, it feels like a true pleasure to drive without the need to become overly complicated.

With the 350z becoming more affordable than ever, and the introduction of the 370z driving those prices down even further, it’s the perfect time to land yourself one of these awesome cars if you haven’t already.

If you’re just starting out with modifying your 350z, you’re definitely going to want to check out our various Tuning Guides which we’ve created just for you. From Coilovers right the way through to Turbo Kits, we’ve covered a huge range of upgrades!

Whether you’re looking for a weekend toy, daily driver, or a JDM car to throw sideways, the 350z ticks so many of the right boxes. It’s not scared of taking a beating and will be a far more reliable choice than the likes of the increasingly expensive s-chassis, with parts then being far easier to source if necessary.

We’re sure that most 350z owners will agree that despite its good looks, it does have a real ‘stock’ factory look about it which can be easily improved with some simple upgrades. Whether you’ve opted for the earlier or later model, we’re going to take a look at the most popular front lips on the market for the 350z.

From the cheapest kits on the market, through to perfectly the crafted carbon fiber variety, we’re going to take a look at each of them to see what is going to suit your needs best.

If you’re hitting up the track every weekend, carbon fiber is most likely not going to be for you, since you’ll probably end up dying a little inside with every scrape. However, one of the cheaper alternatives will be a great option for your weekend drift car and easily replaced when things don’t go entirely to plan.

It’s extremely common with parts like front lips to need some minor modifications to make them fit. This may be as simple as just heating it up a little, but we don’t recommend taking on any task that may feel beyond your capabilities as we hate hearing of enthusiasts ruining their near-perfect new part.

If you’re unsure, we highly recommend seeking professional advice to ensure the perfect fitment.

Seibon TT Style Carbon Fiber 350z Front Lip

seibon tt 350z front lip

Our comment: We kick off our list with one of Seibon’s most popular 350z front lip choices, the TT.

Seibon are one of the most common names when it comes to supplying carbon fiber aftermarket parts to the tuning industry, and their quality is extremely highly regarded.

Their products are manufactured with a single carbon fiber sheet to ensure no awkward, cheap-looking breaks in the lines, and also feature a rolled edge for premium look and fitment.

Although this is far from the cheapest product out there, you can guarantee that the finish and quality of this front lip be immaculate. If you are unhappy with the product for whatever reason, Seibon will happily exchange it for you.

One of the best things about carbon fiber is its strength. If you’re planning on running your car low, this is far more likely to hold up to scrapes and bumps. Even if you’re not worried about it touching the ground, what’s not to love about that stunning carbon weave?!

Manufacturer description:Seibon Carbon components are carefully hand-crafted using only the finest materials. Our production team offers superior craftsmanship with over 15 years of experience working with carbon fiber.

“Every component is constructed with a consistent weave pattern. Our production processes allow exceptional carbon/resin ratio, creating high product stiffness that also leads to extra strength. For a stunning finish, our products are coated with a glossy clear coat that does not chip or flake. We meticulously inspect all of our components and stand firmly behind our products so that you can enjoy peace of mind with every genuine Seibon Carbon product.

“Creating performance-oriented products that help shed unnecessary weight without sacrificing style is our specialty. Race after race, Seibon products have proven to be as strong as the driver’s ambition to win, thus making Seibon Carbon the preferred brand among professional drivers.


Aeroxx N1 Style 350z Front Lip

aeroxx 350z front lip

Our comment: If you’re looking for a bargain lip which looks the part, you’ve certainly come to the right place! With an insane price tag, this high-quality Aeroxx polyurethane lip has pleasantly surprised many owners looking to upgrade the looks of their Z on a budget. This looks very similar to the Seibon TT lip above for those of you that aren’t interested in going down the carbon fiber route.

Unlike the carbon fiber alternatives, this product arrives unpainted, so that’ll need to be a consideration when it comes to fitting. If you’re not too fussy with how the paint looks, it may be a challenge that you could be interested in taking on yourself to save some precious bucks for tires!

For the money, you really can’t go wrong with this lip, and if you’re running a super low setup then it’s not too expensive to replace if it happens to get damaged.

Manufacturer description:Aeroxx is a manufacturer of premium poly-urethane aftermarket styling products. All body kit items are shipped unfinished and require prep-work before painting. Professional installation is recommended.

“Minor adjustments might be necessary. These are normal body work and installation steps.


Vicrez INGS 350z Front Lip

Our comment: Vicrez enters our list with their first offering, which has been specifically designed for those of you that are running the INGS front bumper on your 350z, but also would like to sit a little lower at the front, or perhaps provide some additional protection to the bumper itself.

This splitter has been also been specifically created to enhance aerodynamics and deliver peak performance for your Z. When fitted, you can expect your front-end lift to decrease while being able to maximize cornering speeds and high-speed ability.

Our comment: If you’re lucky enough to already be running the 350z Rocket Bunny Kit, you’re going to love the unique design of the Vicrez splitter which they’ve created specifically for the Rocket Bunny bumper.

Our comment: For those of you that would love the INGS look for your 350z, but you’re rocking out on a budget, this ‘INGS Style’ lip from IKON Motorsports has a great reputation from owners at a great price point.

You will have to expect to do a small amount of adjustment to get it to fit perfectly, perhaps trimming or heat bending, but most owners have reported that it took minimal amounts of work.

Our comment: For those of you that have opted for the rarer Nismo V2 bumper and are hoping to mix it up a little with a unique look, Vicrez has created just the thing for your needs!

This splitter sits underneath the bumper itself and is provided with support rods for extra strengthening. If these aren’t to your taste then I’m sure they can be run without. With the splitter being made from ABS, you can be sure it’ll happily take the abuse on the Nismo bumpers behalf!

As with the other Vicrez splitter we reviewed previously for the Rocket Bunny kit, this also adjusts the aerodynamics of the car by decreasing front-end lift whilst maximizing cornering speeds and enhancing high-speed stability.

Our comment: IKON Motorsports return to our list with an alternative option. If you were impressed with the price tag on their previous offering, this one is even better!

Although it’s not one of our favorite designs, it’s a nice subtle addition to your later-model Z, which doesn’t have quite as much aftermarket support as the earlier model bumpers.

Many owners have once again been impressed by the quality and fitment, but at this bargain price, don’t be surprised if it does need a few minor adjustments.

Vicrez haven’t forgotten about you when it comes to developing their splitters, and this V3 option adds the perfect aggressive touch to make your V3 bumper stand out from the crowd. It also includes the support rods for added strengthening.

Seibon CW Style Carbon Fiber 350z Front Lip

seibon cw 2 350z front lip

There’s a justified reason for the Seibon lips being the most sought after for the 350z. Their carbon fiber quality is stunning, very few people have had any complaints about fitment, and they are built to last, even if you’re bumper-to-door with your homies at the track.

Admittedly, there are no real differences between their kits, and it all comes down to a matter of taste with which style you prefer, but for us, the CW Front Lip fits in nicely with the 350’s body lines.
