Hi all,
Lost my 2010 completely stock but gorgeous FX35 in Hurricane Ida. I bounced back and found myself a gorgeous 2008 Obsidian Black FX35 with 52k miles on it!!!! I fell in love with this car fresh out of college this was the body style I always wanted! Now it’s time to do some work... just had tints added and I’m replacing the dashboard this Friday, very pumped. I’ve ordered the Motordyne 5/16th ISO Thermal plenum spacer and complete Stillen Intake and Z-tube. I just wanted to get my feet wet and say hi to the community. I had one question for the Stereo has anyone installed the Tesla touch screen yet I see a ton of these kits popping up on ebay. Currently just using a bovee Bluetooth connector. One phone call and I have to uninstall and reinstall the adapter to hear music. Would love to hear some feedback if these screens are worth it?

Welcome to the Org Gary. For the Tesla screen, there is a long thread with tons of info. Just search for "Tesla Style Nav" and you will find it. I have been following the thread and the results seem to be mixed. Are you replacing the dash with a new oem dashboard? If so, check out my gallery photos of the re and re that I did with mine. I have been meaning to do a write up but haven't had the chance yet.
Thanks, I didnt see the other forum until after I asked. So I attached some before and after pictures. So happy with the decision. We found one in d#mn near brand new condition in a Salvage yard in a Connecticut. So happy I went with a full replacement because I dont think with the state of the original dash that the adhesive for a coverlay would of held for all that long. I forgot to mention when I purchased the car there was already a brown coverlay dash cover on the dash, but it was badly applied and the glue was drying out as seen in pictures below.

I am very happy with my oem replacement dash. It looks like new inside the vehicle. Expensive, but worth it to me.

I totally agree
  1. OEM Dash Installed
  2. Stillen CAI W/ Ztube installed
  3. Motordyne 5/16 ISO Thermal Plenum Spacer Installed.
  4. Saikouw Oil Catch Installed
  5. Ordered Testla Style Radio
What’s next ?
I’m looking to work on suspension and handling. Anyone know where I can purchase a Stillen or G-Spec front strut bar?
I am struggling to choose to remove the stock Exhaust, since I love the sound it makes. I was wondering if anyone has been able to keep the stock sound with any combination of header or high flow cats? Is there a exhaust out there that creates a similar sound ?

my goal is to maximize HP without Forced induction. Keep the luxury style but upgrade it as much as I can.
