    and I must say over all quality is not up to par with other Japanese makes. My G35C has gone back to the dealer twice already for a leaking window and a rattling sunroof. I have to go back again soon since the handbrake doesnt hold at all other than on a prefectly flat surface, seat squeaks, and there is a rattle in the rear seat area.


    I mean these aren't really big deals but I expected more out of a car that costed me $55,000 canadian that is only 14 days old. I know its first year production but still I expected more.


    Also I have found that although ppl have claimed this VQ35 as one of the best 6cyl engines I beg to differ. It is not smooth at all compared to Honda's V6s and is way way behind in smoothness compared to the I6 that is in my 528i.


    The plus side is that the car looks great, handles amazling well considering its 3400+ pound curb weight. It has plenty of power but eats gas compared to my ITR (which was faster than this car)



    Anyways here a pic of my new baby.

    In some ways yes!! but you are still plagued with the same cheap materials used in the interior.

    Out of curiosity - why the hate for the G35C, HisXLNC?

    Its ugly. Pure and simple. The back end is way too huge and the exhaust note reminds me of a Pontiac Fiero.

    Yes......I gots the White one, the only thing I don't like about the interior is that it is to hard to clean due to the mix of materils used...

    What the hell is behind that big ass door? Is it like the Sentra where they forget to put in the navigation, so they just give you a big place to stash stuff?

    If you had looked into XM radio at all, I would suggest going with the Delphi system in that pocket area. I did a 350Z the other day, and we mounted the Receiver in there and it worked SMOOTH in there.

    Just FYI. :cool: car nonetheless
