Tell me what you guys think of my smoked tails. I'm still on the fence about the look, maybe I need to let it grow on me.

it's subtle and still retains the oem look, so not bad. You might want to consider smoking any reflectors or sidemarkers as well just to match the look, and if available some smoked headlamps or jdm style black ones.

My headlights have the black chrome/shadow tint inside. I also painted my corner reflectors body color as you can see from a previous pic.

Ya... i saw the exact same badging on a car at school today. Is that a PACKAGE from the dealer?

Looks good with the smoked tails, but do the conversion properly and get the nissan grill and rear badging!!

Do the side lights flash? if so that's really dumb to paint them.. You would think in NYC the marker lights would be your only defence from getting plowed when your trying to change lanes or turn.

I like tinted tail lights, but on a white car they look out of place. I would sell them to someone with a darker color car.

No, side lights don't flash. The headlights have a position bulb at the corner. Also, the smoked tails is just a vinyl overlay over the oem tails, so if I decide to take them off all I have to do is start peeling off the vinyl.

Paul - Thanks for the positive feedback.

Andre - Yeah I got rid of my E46 back in march. I felt it was time for a change so I got this for a little while. The G is pretty quick with the 298hp 6speed and a great bang for the buck.

///Msanity - my 19's are gunmetal so everything blends in nicely.

I dont have any recent side shots with the smoked tails and since the weather is shitty here in NY I wont be able to take some shots either. here's an old pic of my wheels on the car. The finish on the rim is a bit darker in person than in the photo.

Do you really think an E46 325i is faster than a G35 6-speed? Inflated ratings or not, 298hp is still way above 184.

The G is faster than my old 325, BUT it doesn't as well as the 325i with Sport pack.

my boy witha 24Valve VR6 chip intake and exhaust took a G35 on the higway and raped him, i also ran into one a few months back and it was a very easy race

Yes, because those two "rapes" dictate how fast a G35 is.

If anyone wants to know how fast a car is, ask Andre if he "raped" one yet, because that is the end-all test of acceleration.

I had the clear reflectors and I didn't like the way they looked against the white paint. So I painted the amber ones with the factory paint. They turned out to flow better with the car.

Boys boys relax.... i'm on adres side on this one..... i was playing around with a 4dr G35 and more than likely it was automatic, he had a full car, and everytime we went at it, my car would pull on him ever so slightly, but considering the power difference, i was somewhat disapointed. But i've been raped many times by the coupes, so i still give them respect!

ok you wanna compare my old E30 to yours what are you on crack, yes my E30 had 121HP what does your shit box have 140??? it was def slow but received more compliments and looks then your POS like i called it before ever did or will.

BTW i was saying that the G35 is indeed a fast car, but nowhere near the 260+ HP that it supposedly has. And yes my S4 is not the fastest car in the world that's for sure but im happy with the 400HP that i currently have

No hits below the belt!
Isn't Infiniti one of the Jap companies that have been over rating the power of they're vehicles?


P.S. Shoulda kept the E30, although the AUDI might have 400+hp, its stilla VW deep down, and lets see how long that power lasts!
(sorry, i got crazy beef with AUDI/VW's although they do have hot cars!

Infiniti is technically a North American company. They bring over Nissan's, rebadge them, and make people feel good, and think they are getting a special car. :D

You never said it was a fast car at all:

y did u sell the E46? that shizzle was PIMP, it was a better looking car and faster then the G35 which is slow as hellllllll

Hypocrite.

And an '05 G35 6-speed will run neck and neck with an E90 330i 6-speed, no problem. The figures are out there, they both run near identical times. They are both some of the fastest cars in their respective classes, I don't know where you got this "slow as hell" claim from.

Bwahahahha that made me spit my orange juice all over my desk.....

I don't particularly like G35's, especially the front, its actually horrid now that I think about it, but they are quick, about e90 330i territory.

As far as the initial topic, I like the tinted lights.

Infiniti never over rated the power output of their vehicles, it was ACURA that was caught over rating.

Yeah in Japan my G35 is called a Skyline 350GT. I saw the computer generated photos that are circulating around the net and I don't like the new skylines. I'd like to import an R34 right hand drive tho. My next car will be from Germany in 3yrs.
