To Infiniti and beyond...new ride

On Valentine's Day I bought myself a present (but had to get rid of my Infiniti G37S coupe). I was tired of shifting and thought a Stone White/Saddle Overland 4x4 with the Hemi and Mopar Chrome Group would fit the bill. It came with the 430N radio which is very different from the Infiniti Nav system (It will take some getting used to). All in all, a nice trade off. Absolutely love it.

I made the same transition. Traded in my 2008 G37S Coupe for my WK2 and do not miss the coupe at all. The WK2 has everything my G did except for the paddle shifters.

I also have the 430N and kinda miss the Infiniti Nav, but the 430N is pretty simple and offers the same features.

Welcome to the Forum!

Welcome to the Forum!
An GC SRT8 will take care of that (and kick butt on the G in 0-60)

Huh? Could WK2 outperform G37 0-60? Could G go off-road as JGC and tow boat behind? How do you compare behemoth vs impala and getting such conclusions? I am amazed of people comparing two totally different cars and somehow still could found no difference.

I own both cars and only both could give me complete enjoyment in any weather and needs.

One of each is needed!

That's why we have the WK2 Overland, VW GTI and the Porsche Boxster and we should have an FFR Roadster with a Boss based 427 @ 535HP in the stable in the next couple years

Great attitude!!! I hate all in one solutions all my life. I will never buy phone for camera and photo camera for video etc Same with cars, each serving its purpose in my garage!
Maybe it is just me but sounds like this forum is full of strange and not much educated kids using same tires on snow and hot weather just because they are looking good!!!, using 85 gasoline on $45K cars when down on money, never spend extra $1 for synthetic oil, happy on free oil change even it is done by criminals working in dealerships, etc.
