    New to me money pit !!

    Hey guys whats up? So last week I made a change that I thought I would never make only because I have never owned a sedan it has always been mustang,trucks and jeeps lol. I traded in my 05 hemi jeep for a 2011 Infiniti G37x and let me tell you if was a great choice !! This car is great , suspension sticks to the road and the 3.7 v6 330 hp gets up and goes ! But just to be clear I did not sell my 5.9 and I probably never will lol someday it will be built !!

    here is a pic the first day of having it

    - - - Updated - - -

    all ready I have started making changes lol nothing hard core just minor tweaks . Tinted the windows 20% all around ,added the factory painted mud guard kit ,plasti-dipped trunk lid emblems and ordered a grounding kit from stillen.com which is supposed to help with more accurate trans. shifting and audio improvements . I did some research on the kit before ordering and it seems to be a pretty effective mod . This is a total different world of modding then I am used to .


    here is a pic of the dipped emblems .

    my wife told me not to do it lol she said " don't turn your new car ghetto already ! " right after that got a can of plasti-dip and sprayed them lol

    Ever have any trouble with the police because of it? I see more and more cars tinted past 35% in MA lately.

    Every so often I feel tempted to sell my TL and pick one of those up just for the VQ engine and AWD, they are fun!
