ChicagoZ.com :What got you hooked to the G35 that you ended up purchasing it?
RobertG35 :A friend of mine has an 04 G coupe, and after driving it couple of times, i fell in love with the car, i loved the combined power and luxury. The g35's curves are sexy too.

ChicagoZ.com :What action does your G35 mostly see? drag, autox, road race, show car, weekend car, and/or daily driver...
RobertG35 :The G was my daily driver unless it snowed, if it got dirty, i cleaned it a.s.a.p. i did local meets and cruises too, but never got a chance to take it to a dragstrip.

ChicagoZ.com :Any performance specs? 1/4 mile@mph, whp/wtorq, track times...
RobertG35 :I dynoed the car twice, once was at SP Pro Efi meet, it did 236whp, all stock, the second time i had a BorlaTD, and the car did 239whp lol.

ChicagoZ.com :What other modifications are you planning on doing to the G35, if any? Whether it's performance, handling, appearance, and/or sound system....
RobertG35 :My appearance mods were pretty much completed, i was planning on getting bolt ons, such as intake, plenum spacer and other stuff like that, i was also very close to buying a double din and putting a pioneer stereo since the Bose was taking a poop.

Maybe? It's a requirement to get another one. At least you will get a shot at being COTM again with the new G.

Congrats on making it.

remember when there was a car of the month? i barely do, i wasn't around too long before it ended. any how... i propose a "car of the quarter" since monthly may be too much work.

anyhow, if we can't get a new car of the month, can we at least get a new home page pic update every month?

bump....

how much work can it be to change the home page picture?

whoa whoa why is this going on in my COTM ? lol jk.. I support this idea too.

But a lil update exactly a year later. I am buying the Genesis 2.0T on Monday !!! The dealer has to do a trade with another one since they sold their last 2.0T and all they have is a 3.8. It will either be a black, or dark gray one.

A 3 year bump and an update on my past and current vehicle(s)..
Ever since getting rid of the G35, i picked up a new 2011 Genesis Coupe 2.0T..

1.5 years later i traded it in for the 2013 Genesis Coupe GT 3.8L. This is my new "G" :grinlaugh:

350z wheels on Blizzaks make a perfect winter setup!

Nice, what are your thoughts of the car so far compared to z/g? One of my neighbors has one and it looks pretty nice.

Comparing the G35 to the V6 Genesis is a tough one. The G35 felt like it had more presence and showed success. The Genesis being a Hyundai still is doubted at times.

Performance wise though, the Genesis beats the G35/G37.

I do know that the g37x will beat a stock v6 Genesis, but not the regular sport coupe.

The engine noise is pure :leghump:
