Should I buy a daily?




so I have two G35 sedans one black auto one that I already invested a couple of bucks into it and a 6MT in twilight blue that I recently picked up.The black one was my baby for a while until she started to rust up pretty bad.She has tein flex z coilovers along with a cold air intake only currently.My blue one is pretty much stock it only has 350z springs and a 350z intake.Anyways my question is should I sell my black G35 to buy a daily? Like a SUV or a corolla? Or should keep the black one and add stock suspension to it and transfer my coils to my 6mt sedan.My plan is to keep my 6mt as far away from salt as I probably can to keep it clean to be my weekend car,But I also want something I could beat on my way to work.

Yea but she’s lowered so she bottoms out horribly on my way to work from all the snow and potholes

G35 sedan w/ too much money in mods
Do you have the coils adjusted as high as they can go on the black one? If not do that, get an alignment then re-evaluate your decision. If you need something bigger like a truck for more functionality then that would be a good choice but with the condition of the black G you probably wouldn't get a whole lot for her if she was sold.

yes ialready tried that my coilovers actually have always been at stock height.I actually hit my front subframe last night on a yellow speed bump and now my undercarriage makes a rattling noise and have no clue what it is.I Basically only enjoy driving my car on smooth roads like in the suburbs but I live in the city so the roads are shitty.I honestly been driving my black car as my beater to work as of recently but I don’t want to damaged my coils that I plan to swap to my blue G or if sell the whole car later on.

My vote goes to suspension and wheels swap and daily the black G, or even better if you got the $$ an old Toyota to put miles on and still keep the black G.

Then you've got a fun beater as well as parts car for your 6mt. Nothing beats not caring when a rock hits your hood at 100 mph, or hoping some idiot hits you in the way to work so the insurance will buy you a rust free car lol
