The Nissan Altima has some seriously sharp styling from the factory, but for the true enthusiast, STILLEN has developed an all new 2010-12 Nissan Altima Front Lip Spoiler* that will have your Altima the envy of every Nissan owner on the street today.

STILLEN 2010-12 Nissan Altima Front Lip Spoiler

The STILLEN Nissan Altima Front Lip Spoiler, made from highly durable and flexible polyurethane – the primary material used in O.E. applications, has been completely designed, tested and manufactured in-house at the STILLEN headquarters located in Costa Mesa, California. STILLEN has been producing body kits in-house for over 20 years, and customers have long enjoyed the benefits of polyurethane over the easily breakable fiberglass parts found on the market today.

We gave you the heads up earlier this month that we were in development of the STILLEN Protective Skid Plate for the new 2012 DBA-R35 GT-R’s, and we’re proud to announce that these have been completed and are now shipping!

Here’s the product text from the STILLEN website:

It’s every GT-R owners worst nightmare, scraping the front bumper on anything from driveways, dips, speedbumps, and pulling into that parking spot with the raised curb and making contact.
.
STILLEN has developed a urethane Skid Plate which protects the OEM fascia and paint from scrapes and light bumps. This piece is specifically molded to the GT-R’s front bumper, and installs with 3M automotive acrylic foam tape and self-tapping screws to the underside. Durable urethane construction ensures no cracking, and doesn’t require painting, although can be color matched if desired.
.
As with all STILLEN urethane body components, these are proudly designed and made in the USA at our Costa Mesa, California facility.

It’s bound to happen, you pull into that parking stall in a hurry, clipping the parking block and hearing that dreaded grinding noise.. Or seeing that impossibly sharp driveway, gripping the wheel tighter as you slowly creep over it, hoping the front won’t get damaged too much as you hear the scraping happening and you’ve already committed..

STILLEN has developed a protective skid plate made from urethane to combat this exact problem.  This piece is designed to conform to the bottom side of the front fascia, and protect against scraping and bumps.  It’s designed to be sacrificial, and made from durable urethane that can stand the abuse, leaving your factory bumper free from mishaps.

After months of development, STILLEN is proud to release our new styling products for the new Kia Soul as seen at SEMA 2009.

Aero components include the Kia Soul Front Lip Spoiler made from durable Polyurethane to withstand abuse and perform just like OEM. Also new from the design studio is the Kia Soul Rear Roof Wing, constructed of urethane.

R&D on the new Nissan GT-R is in full swing at STILLEN, and just released are the functional urethane GTR R35 body components, including Lip Spoiler and Side Skirts, designed to improve downforce and add unique styling.

These pieces are constructed of 100% durable polyurethane, able to withstand the abuse of the racetrack as well as a night out on the town.  As with all STILLEN urethane components, these also feature a limited lifetime warranty.  See below for additional photos and information. Pricing is available on the STILLEN Product Page.

Product information from the STILLEN Product Page:

Front Lip Spoiler:

Enhancing the aerodynamic performance of such a finely tuned car like the GT-R is no small feat.  When developing the car Nissan did a great job of developing an aero package that works well, but left some room for improvement for the true enthusiast.  One of the most common complaints of GT-R owners is the car has a tendency to “push” when exercised hard on a race course (understeer).  Two ways to fix this condition are through the suspension, or increasing downforce via aerodynamics of the car at higher speeds.  Increasing the aerodynamic downforce keeps the front end of the car planted and therefore improving front grip, reducing the “push” effect.


The STILLEN Urethane Lip Spoiler adds 2″ of length to the OEM fascia, and installs directly onto the vehicle over the factory piece. This lip spoiler is designed to hold additional air onto the nose, with flares on the side corners producing a canard effect for extra control.


Another major benefit of the front lip spoiler is the durability.  Constructed out of high-quality polyurethane, this front spoiler is nearly indestructible and carries a limited lifetime warranty. This means it can stand up to the hazards of the race track or the drive around town with 100% driver/owner confidence.


Side Skirts:

Continuing the aerodynamic stabilization of the GT-R, STILLEN has developed new side skirts with a 2 inch ledge built in to apply more downforce to the car.  This design comes from the testing performed on the legendary IMSA Nissan 300ZX, campaigned in the IMSA sports car series at Le Mans, Daytona, and Sebring.  Tested in the Lockheed Martin wind tunnel, the Nissan engineers found that by enhancing the side ledge on the rocker it applied a incremental amount of downforce at higher speeds thus keeping the car planted and more stable through high speed corners.


Another major benefit of the rockers is the greatly improved appearance.  Offering a much more aggressive look and race proven engineering these rockers are sure to catch attention and compliments.  Just like all STILLEN body work these are constructed out of durable polyurethane, ready for paint, and offer a limited lifetime warranty.  Perfect for daily driving or track days and utilize the factory skirt mounting points to ensure a perfect fit and finish.

We recently introduced the STILLEN Roof Wing for the 04-06 Nissan Maxima (Part# 108264), and wanted to showcase it on a customer vehicle, and Maxima.org member Fastmax05 was up for the challenge.

As you can see the STILLEN Maxima Roof Wing adds a unique, finishing touch to the lines of the 6th generation Maxima, and is a very easy install.

STILLEN Roof Wings are constructed of high quality, durable urethane, and feature a lifetime warranty, and are secured to the rear glass with 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape pre-installed to the wing for ease of installation.

STILLEN Altima Coupe Rear Corners

We just got the painted pieces back and immediately installed them on our test mule, and as you can see with the additional pictures below, the transformation is complete.

As with all STILLEN body components, these Altima Coupe Rear Corners are constructed from high quality extremely durable urethane, and are ready to be prepped and painted to match.

These rear corners are a perfect compliment to the STILLEN Side Skirts, and flow nicely with either the STILLEN Full Fascia or Lip Spoiler.

Welcome back. We’ve been hard at work on our 2009 Nissan Maxima body parts and have some new photos to share.

Here’s a look at the final pieces created in the modeling shop, before the molds are made. This is where the fine tuning comes in, this part of the process takes a designer with a keen eye for detail and a steady hand.

During this session some final changes and tweaks were made to the pieces.

The next step is creating the molds to make the parts. After that we’ll have final fitment checks on first production pieces. Stay Tuned – next time we’ll look at the 2009 Maxima performance part development and check in on some of our other projects.

EDIT 10/30/08:  The Maxima is finished!  Click HERE for pictures/info!

We thought it would be interesting to show everyone out there what goes on behind the scenes during the big SEMA push here at STILLEN. The first project car we’re going to reveal is our 2009 STILLEN Maxima. As usual we’ve got a comprehensive build planned which addresses all of the major systems on the car including power, suspension, braking, appearance and entertainment.

The first and one of the most time consuming parts of the process is creating appearance upgrades in our durable STILLEN urethane.

STILLEN Maxima in the Modeling Shop

These pictures are coming direct from our on-site body styling studio where some of our most talented and trusted employees begin the mock-up process for our STILLEN body parts.

The process begins with a concept sketch, that is then transferred onto the car and shaped by hand. This step is where the design actually comes to realization on the vehicle. Once the sculpting is complete, we’ll post an update here, so stay tuned!
