G35 Sport? Does it mean the one with all the bodykit and spoiler option? But this one doesn't seem to have anything but the trunk spoiler.<P>I was seriously looking for one then, but....got something completely different. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/redface.gif">

I read that review before I came here and saw it. Not a bad car. Some refinements need to be done, but that goes for all first year cars. For some reason, I really like the back of the car. I do not like those headlights though.

Almost like something that Nissan never got it right...the rear ends of their cars. Of course with exceptions like Skylines, and S15. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

The diffusers and spoiler are part of the 'Aero Package' that brings drag down to 0.26 Cd.<P>omega6,<P>I love the back of the G35 as well, I think that it looks great in all respects. <P>-Drew<P>

I READ THAT REVIEW.OVERALL I THINK THE CAR IS GOOD LOOKING,LIKE THE FRONT THE REAR END IS OK.LIKE THE TAIL LIGHT'S,INTERIOR LOOK'S OK DOES NOT LOOK UP TO BMW,AUDI AND OR EVEN VOLVO STANDARD'S.LIKE THE FACT IT IS REARWHEEL DRIVE,260H.P. HAS ALL THE BELL'S AND WHISTLE'S' ALSO LOOK'S LIKE IT HAS EXCELLENT BRAKING CAPABILITIE'S.I MIGHT ACTUALLY GO TAKE A TEST DRIVE OF ONE OF THESE TO SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE.WE WILL SEE,ALL IN ALL IT'S A VERY NICE DESIGN.<BR>BIGMIKE<BR>2002 S60 2.4T COSMOS BLUE,PREMIUM PKG'17-INCH TETHY'S WHEEL'S.

Although I liked the car OK overall I thought the interior was rather below the rest of the car. Way too much plastic and poor plastic at that. I think the newer I35 version is better but I haven't driven or seen it.<P>Then I drove my Volvo and the difference was like night and day on the interior (and my back loved it too!). I feel like Infiniti is way too cheap on the interior and from the picture of this new G35 it looks like it is the same. Too much plastic trying to look like metal or something else besides plastic.<P>Eric<BR>'98 S70 GLT<P><p>[This message has been edited by Big E (edited 05-12-2002).]

Needs a manual tranny before it can truly be called a sport sedan. We'll see what happens when and if that ever happens.<P>Oh yeah, TurboMike, turn the caps lock off bro <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/cool.gif"><P>

Infiniti is moving all of their cars in the RWD/AWD direction, hopefully becoming the BMW of Japan, without the ugly styling of 'Chris Bung-hole'! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

Nissan as a cheaper model will (IMO) emulate the growth of VW and Infiniti (unimpressive and stagnant so far) will ride that pony the way AUdi rode the VW wave. Granted, Audi was not really unimpressive nor stagnant but untilt the A4 came to the States, they were not really going anywhere. Now, they are approaching 90,000+ sales a year!<P>Yannis<P><P>
