New G35 Owner

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself as a new G owner. I picked up this bone-stock '06 6MT G35 in WV2 last weekend in order to serve as my DD. While I'm no stranger to the VQ engine, this will be my first G. I used to have a '91 Infiniti M30 convertible and a bullet-proof '00 Maxima. The wife has a '10 M35x and my "fair-weather car" is an '05 350z roadster.

A few things in the queue right now include a good cleaning and detailing followed by some new fluids in the tranny and rear diff. There is a noticeable clunk from the rear when shifting hard which I believe to be the rear diff bushing. No noise when driving conservatively. I'll probably replace it with the Whiteline kit. Also, the clutch pedal resistance feels strange and the catch point is off so I'll be replacing the MC with the Wilwood kit from ZSpeed and go with a SS line and some fresh fluid. With just over 100K on the clock, the suspension will need some freshening up with some Bilstein B6's.

Other than that, I'm going to enjoy her for as long as I can. Thanks for having me.

I have a great parts block for you if you are interested. I have the very same vehicle in Black. Beautiful Transmission (no clunk) and engine. Very inexpensive.

Stock g35s look so good, with the rays wheels of course. Take care of your G and it should take care of you. If your dash is still in good condition, get a quality sun shade. They are known to crack like crazy. Covercraft makes a nice one that is custom fit. So perfect that the pillars hold it up without the sun visors
