NEED a G, What year should I get??

Hey all,

I am in the market for a new car. Im tired of driving my crappy Z24 w/ the broken A/C & plastic everywhere.

I wanna get a G35. I love the look, I love the sound & I just need one. I deserve a nicer car. I am not looking for brand new because of cost & instant depreciation etc.

I know very little about these cars.

What years should I look out for?
Do certain years have better parts, trans, engines etc..??


Im more than capable to handle repairs etc, but just want to make sure Im getting a good start.

I tried doing a search, but came up empty.

Any info is appreciated. THANKS!
_marc

NoToRiouzxG,

Thanks for the link... I Like the o3-05 style better w/ everything except the headlights..

To be honest, I dont even care what they look like. Every G35 coupe I see is just awesome looking.. I would definately make it my own.

Im thinking more along the lines of mechanical issues etc.. Under the surface !!

Thanks.

Search but if I were u I'd look into 05-07 bc of there upgrades to the interior and for the 06-07 it has upgraded projector headlights and upgraded taillights and the 06/07 g35 5at coupes have the option of the intelligent/smart key

if u prefer to driver manual, get an 05-06 they came with ther Rev-up engine which puts down more power, but if u want an auto i'd say may be like an 05 or 06 something around their, btw do u want a coupe or a sedan?

^^ Just remember that with the 6MT 05+ rev-up motors, that you may face oil consumption problems and oil leaking into the #6 spark plug.

So long as you still have the manufacturer's warranty, this shouldn't be a problem.

Small minor issues that I am having with my 05 is my rear axle making the clicking noise in reverse and my driver's side power door lock motor is starting to die. That's it so far.

Thanks for the replies.

Coupe definately, manual all the way !!!

Concensus seems to be 05-06 so far.. Not too concerned about fancy interiors.. Anything is going to be better than what I got...Im sure they are both nice.

Then I would go with a 03-04, unless you can validate that the 05-06 does NOT have oil problems.

Found a nice looking 2005, blue.

80k on the body, but 11k on the motor.. Guy says Infiniti installed a brand new engine because a technician didnt put enough oil in...

Asking 15.5k..

Damn.. Didnt think I would fall in love so soon...

APC went outta business years ago... Lucky for me I built up an awesome stash of thier products for future use !!

Why you gotta mention the fender vents?? Hmm? Is it because of my username!??!

BTW- Whats the biggest rims I can fit on the car?? Im looking for like 26"s. !!!
