Mark your calendars:  STILLEN’s Open House Customer Appreciation Day is

May 8th, 2010!

NEW UPDATES!! – CLICK HERE!


2009 brought some high highs and some low lows.  Through the tough economic times STILLEN pushed ahead with new products, new race programs and took the STILLEN prepared Nissan R35 GT-R to a first place finish in the Targa Newfoundland Rally.  All the while continuing growth saw the expansion of our manufacturing facility and more development out of R&D.

Development of that race program prevented us from being able to hold our annual Open House Customer Appreciation Day, but we are very excited to announce that 2010 will see the return of the highly anticipated event.  We would like to invite you to come down and celebrate our 25th year in business!

Earlier this month we said goodbye again to the STILLEN R35 GT-R after getting the call from Nissan that they would like to bring the GT-R back into Canada for the 2010 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.

Nissan arranged for transport, and placed the Targa GT-R in the center of their booth, giving attendees a chance to get inches away from the Orange Godzilla and get a peek for themselves. The show runs through February 21, 2010. [Pictures & Video after the jump]

Join us Saturday, January 16th at STILLEN as we host the first BIG Detail Clinic of 2010!

STILLEN relies on Adam’s Polishes to keep all of our show cars looking the way they were meant to be, and we’re opening up the shop to give our customers an up-close look at these detailing products in action.

Adam’s experts will be on hand, demoing Adam’s most popular products, new detailing tools and accessories, and giving you first hand advice for getting the absolute best shine possible. Plus, there will be one-day-only special savings and FREE Adams’s samples for all that attend. 

On Saturday we opened up the parking lot and the doors to STILLEN as a place for guys at NICO to come down and throw a BBQ meet.  We were really impressed at the number of attendees, and the quality of the vehicles that showed up!

This was also the first time anyone has seen (and heard!) the STILLEN GT-R in a public setting, and the build is getting much closer to being finished in preparation for the upcoming Targa Newfoundland Rally in September.

STILLEN Brake Pros is proud to introduce the STILLEN Front Big Brake Kit for the 2007-2008 Nissan Altima (Coupe or Sedan). This kit utilizes STILLEN / PBR 2-Piston Calipers, 13″ 1-Piece Cross Drilled & Slotted Rotors, high performance Mintex Xtreme brake pads, stainless steel brake lines, and all necessary brackets and hardware.

STILLEN Big Brake Kit for the 07-08 Altima


This kit will CLEAR THE STOCK OE 17″ 12-SPOKE WHEELS!

This kit is expected to start shipping the last week of September 2008.

This is a perfect upgrade for anyone looking for additional braking performance for spirited driving. The combination of a 2-Piston Caliper, dramatically improved Brake Pads, and Stainless Steel lines will ensure a firm pedal, zero brake fade, and improved stopping distances.

Upgrading to this kit from your stock 1-piston OEM calipers offers uniform clamping to the pads, increased clamping pressure, more leverage via the new caliper mounting point and the included larger rotors.

Mintex Xtreme Brake Pads are very high performance street pads that can handle temperatures from cold to over 1300°F, and are linear and predictable under all conditions. These pads have excellent grip, but retain important features like lower brake dust, moderate wear rates, and are much more rotor-friendly compared to other high performance compounds.

For those looking to take your Altima to the track, we also have the AP Racing 4-Piston Kit, both front and rear, which will stand up to as much abuse as possible both on the street and at the track.

We showed some pictures of the STILLEN Production Facility Expansion in its earlier construction phase in late June, and as you can see from the photos below, construction is almost complete.  This expansion will double the size of this STILLEN building, giving us the much needed room to expand the fabrication and manufacturing divisions of STILLEN.

Everyone is chomping at the bit to get some machines in there and increase production…

We have released the STILLEN 2007-2008 Altima Sedan Front Lip Spoiler, as well as the Side Skirts (Rockers).  The Lip Spoiler is an alternative to the complete Front Fascia which is also available.  The Side Skirts are a perfect match to either front treatment choice.

Altima Sedan Lip Spoiler & Side Skirts

These are constructed from high-quality urethane, ensuring OEM quality and a long life.  They feature a limited lifetime warranty against breakage or cracking during normal use for as long as you own your vehicle.  These pieces are raw urethane, ready to be primed and painted to match your vehicle.

Installation is a breeze, with 3M tape pre-installed on the pieces, hardware included, and detailed step by step instructions (lip spoiler / side skirts).  The side skirts will replace the OEM pieces, and the lip spoiler is a direct fitment over the OEM bumper cover.

Special thanks goes to NICO member Jose3.5 for coming down on several occasions for final fitments, and allowing us to get some preliminary photography.  Look for a vehicle to hit the photo studio soon for some more detailed pictures.

STILLEN Expansion

STILLEN Expansion

In early 2007 Steve Millen set a goal to expand our manufacturing facility (one of our three buildings in Costa Mesa, California) by the end of 2008. After months of planning and dozens of re-designs the plans to double the size of our fabrication/manufacturing building were finalized. This expansion was necessary to meet the increasing demand for our exhausts, headers, sway bars and other Stillen made products. A little known fact – STILLEN’s manufacturing division makes sway bars, headers, exhaust system and other parts for some of the largest and best known brands in the performance industry.

During the last 22 years we have expanded from a small 1,000 square foot facility in Santa Ana, California into a 3 building campus occupying over 100,000 square feet in Costa Mesa, California next to the John Wayne airport. Within these 3 buildings 95% of the parts we manufacture are made in house. Along with the new building will come new machinery for both manufacturing and R&D. So, no matter what you can dream of, STILLEN will always be there pushing the performance envelope!
