Re: 2010 G37 Sedan

Next mods are probably a set of 5000K D2S bulbs to replace the stockers in the headlights for a bit more of a white/blue light, and a 3000K HID kit for the fogs. Intake and exhaust for sure down the road a bit. Wouldn't mind getting some upgraded sways either and a nice strut bar. Also wanna get a system going, maybe one 12 or two 10's.

It's a sweet ride for sure... plenty of power on tap and handles great.

That's exactly the one I want color and all!!! Just I need AWD. I love how the G doesn't have the fogs intergrated into the headlight housing anymore. Great car! How do you like the 7sp tranny? My other prospects are CTS, and TL Typs SH-AWD. I only wish the G had vented seats. By far best bang for the $ in that class of car IMO.

I originally went to look at a G35S they had there, but the seats weren't that comfortable and the ride was a bit too harsh for me. The 7 speed is great... I thought it would always be searching for the right gear coming out of turns and stuff but there is none of that.

I was also looking at the IS350 (too small), TL Type-S (FWD - no go), 335i (felt small inside), A4 and A6 (wary about reliability). Never really considered the CTS but they are sweet rides.

Haha yeah I would have kept the truck if I still lived 7 miles from work but I live 30 miles away now.

Re: 2010 G37 Sedan

Yeah I hear crazy things about Audi. The IS is small. My ex had one. Built good and drives nice just small. Good luck with her. Shell rock with intake and exhaust!

Re: 2010 G37 Sedan

oh no it has a 3 spoke steering wheel.

oh no i need to know every nuance of the nav.

oh no, does it have the heated lumbar that comes on when I do the remote start and the temp is above 60.









sorry i thought this was a wk2











anyway, nice ride bro very classy color and chrome amount is tasteful.
even the analog clock is just classy right there.

Re: 2010 G37 Sedan

This is where Nissan went wrong with the maxima. Same engine in a FWD and too much tq. Everyone I know has the new max isn't crazy about it. Lots of power in FWD =skips.

Re: 2010 G37 Sedan

Exactly why I didn't go with the TL Type-S. I used to have a Dodge Intrepid R/T back in the day and that only had 250 HP and had torque steer like a mofo.

Hey Nate just wanted to let you know they are releasing the newly redesigned Acura TL SH AWD tomorrow at the Chicago Auto show. Supposedly they are toning down the front "beak" a little bit. I too am looking at the TL, G 37 coupe, and A5 and thought you would be interested.
