infiniti g35 review : How have you found the amber gauge lighting? I noticed that more than one car mag review has said that legibility suffers. If so, ironic as the Maxima was a stand-out in that area.Also, how is the OD gearing? ie what RPM's at normal high-way cruising speed? I've read some complaints abou that on freshalloy.net. One thing I don't understand is why Nissan goes so dark with the blue exterior color. It appears even darker than my Midnight Peal Maxima; I was hoping they would lighten it similar to that mid-blue of BMW; I think it would have looked good on the G35. In daylight, you almost have to see the Twilight Blue next to black to notice the difference.All the models on my dealers lot were G35 leather; none less than 32.5K MSRP. Only one out of six had the "sport" package; only one had Xeon headlights. 4 silver, 1 black, 1 blue.Assuming MSRP on the G35, this works out to around 6-10K over a well-equipped, rebate-enhance 2002 Maxima...worth it? only the test drive will tell.I found the insrument lighting quite good. It is lit up whenever theengine is running and has plenty of contrast. I dims automaticallywhen the headlights come on.
infiniti g35 review : My eyes hurt. I shouldn't have gone to that web site.Nice car though *grins*The Vampire Muffin Man mumbled something to the effect of the following at27/1/03 4:26 am:Do you have 'I Have A Micro-Penis' painted on the bonnet? Because you mightas well..Also, do you harbour a deep, dark desire to be a Duke Of Hazzard, by anychance?If it was a penis car, I would have had to pay more for it and had to pay forsomeone else to work on it and would cruise in it all the time trying toimpress people. I bought it because I wanted an extremely fast and rare carwith a manual transmission that was easy to work on and would increase it valuewith everything I did to it. By next summer, it will be worth about 5 timeswhat I paid for it... I'll never sell it, though.The Vampire Muffin Man mumbled something to the effect of the following at27/1/03 3:30 pm:I'll let you off, then.However, your wang is still miniscule.Yeah. And he never trims the hedges properly. Oh wait, that's Juan's job... Wang never puts enough starch in my shirts and he's even shorter and skinnierthan Juan.
infiniti g35 review : I'm seriously thinking of purchasing an AWD vehicle to replace my 96Infiniti G20t. Unfortunately, it hasn't been easy to find one. I'm6'2" tall with a size 16 foot so I had to eliminate several of theSport Vehicles I drove due to their simply being too small. I like theLexus RX300, but it's legroom is marginal. The X5 was big andcomfortable when I drove it but I'm concerned about reliability (notto mention the price). But the reason I'm considering a Sport Vehicleover my top sedan choice (G35) is superior traction in snow and theability to put my racing bike in the cargo area rather than on acarrier. How is the RX300 in snow?I have a 99 rx300 never had a problem in the snow great car"Bob Grabowski" wrote in message...Also, don't forget to try the Acura MDX. For the price, you can't beat it!It depends on the OEM tires on the RX300. The Bridgestone Dueler HT 687 isn't very good in snow. The Goodyear Integrity (what I have) is just average. The RX300's AWD and VSC make up for the tires' incompetence. Note that none of the luxury SUVs in the market is good in snow, just adequate. The OEM tires are aimed toward comfort and dry/wet road performance.
infiniti g35 review : There's no perfect vehicle out there. You have to review your needs and see which vehicle fits you the best. You seem to want an AWD vehicle that's good in snow, can carry a bike inside, plenty of legroom, reliable, and handles well (since you enjoy driving the X5.) Have you looked at the Subaru Forester? It seems to be the only vehicle that suit your needs (unless you have other criteria that I missed.) Oh and it comes with a rubber cargo liner instead of carpet. Sure helps clean up after the bike.I have the RX300 with the duelers; in deep snow it was great! However, mine is a 2000 with the optional Torsen limited slip diffthat you can't get anymore.You may want to consider either waiting for the new RX330 in March'03, or taking a look at the new GX470 coming soon. It slots inbetween the RX300 and LX470 in size, so it may be a good fit for you.I've looked at the Forester. Unfortunately, the legroom to the leftdeadpedal was lacking in it. It was bad in the 2002 and even worse inthe 2003 redesign since the front and back of the seat can no longerbe raised independantly (rasing the front while keeping the back lowaids in legroom to the deadpedal)
infiniti g35 review : I'm talking about a NYC winter with lots of slush and ice. I'mconcerned because I know someone who bought a Jeep Grand Cherokeethinking it would be excellent in the snow here, and he ended upsliding into snowbanks repeatedly. I guess the traction and stabilitycontrol on the ones I'm considering would help prevent that.I often see Ford Explorers and Jeep Grand Cherokees plow into the snowbanks and get stuck in there. These SUVs are rear wheel drive unless the driver engages the 4WD gear. So they handle as well as a Firebird or Corvette in snow. Their owners also tend to be a bit cocky in bad weather, thinking that they got a vehicle that can handle anything. Funny thing is that those little Honda Civics would move along just fine while the Jeep owners wave for help.I sat in the QX4 while my G20 was in for an oil change a few weeksago. The legroom was a little too tight for me (and in the less fancyPathfinder). The MDX baffled me. When I sat in it in the showroom, thelegroom felt tight and the left deadpedal was on the floor, close tothe seat, and practically horizontal with the floor. I couldn't findany comfortable place to put my left foot anywhere. It felt like adriving position that was 1/2 car and 1/2 bus. But the reviews I readof the MDX (and the Honda Pilot) rave about everyone being able tofind a comfortable driving position so maybe I need to spend more timewith it? Tomorrow, I'm renting the X5 for the day so I'll get to knowthe little annoyances that I can expect with it if I buy it (anddecide it if really is worth $12,000 more than a comparably equippedand supposedly mjch more reliable RX300). I don't know if they alsorent the MDX. If they do, maybe I can talk them into giving me the X5for the morning and the MDX for the afternoon. Otherwise, I'll justtake the X5 over to my local Acura dealer and look at it again.
