new member from Italy

Dear all, I'm Dario and I'm writing from Italy
I live near to Monza, where is the famous race track. Maybe because of this, I'm in love with cars and motorcycles.
I've just bought a used CR-Z with manual transmission, 1st generation (2011). Colour is white pearl, with carbon wrapped hood and boot. Alloy are 17", matt titanium finishing. I will post soon some photos, as I have the chance to take some good ones.
Before this car, I had, in order from present to past: Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback, Honda Prelude 5th gen, Honda Civic '92 sedan.
Now... I really hope not to be the only Italian member, or at least that there are many European members, because I'm having troubles to find out aftermarket staff for my car: I would like to put a front lip and a rear spoiler (but not a wing as the mugen style, I would prefer something like the JP Design).
greetings to everyone! Dario

Welcome!! There are plenty of aftermarket parts for the Z but not as extensive as some of the older Civics or even the modern muscle cars (Mustang, Camaro, Challenger). Beatrush by Laile have a line of frame stifining parts that will improve handling for the twisties. Since you have a Euro spec Z, you have some exhaust choices that the US dont have. Reamus and Nobless make center dual tip exhaust systems for the Z. Or if you are lucky, you can find an HPD exhaust. There are some power adder options out there. Sprintex and HKS both make superchargers that work on the CVT and 6m transmissions. If you are lucky and can find one, Honda sells a supercharger kit for the 6m Z that includes an ECU reflash and some bigger fuel injectors. Honda does sell a rear spoiler for the Z that is pretty minimalist and may work for you. As far as front splitters go, C-West sells some body parts such as front bumpers and splutters that look pretty cool.

thank you for your answers!
Remus exhaust is very cool, but it's 1000Ä, so more or less 1150$. Not few, if you consider that I've just buyed the car for 7000Ä.
C west spoiler is cool but it's not sold in europe, and the problem to buy these big things out of Europe is that shipping costs are enormous.

The other option would be to get a Mugen style spoiler from Ebay. I got mine for about $250 USD prepainted. Local body shop installed for $200. So far it has held up. That would work out to be about 400 Euros total.

He doesn't want mugen though. He likes more flush stuff.

I prefer more flush stuff but my friend got me a Mugen replica wing for Christmas, SO THAT'S GOING ON! Lolol

I know honda sells a factory spoiler option. Don't know what the price is but it is very minimalistic.

That's the one I prefer and I believe in the U.S. they are around $250. eBay has "OEM style" for about half that, pre-painted. European options may differ.
