Default The G spot

A girl at work has an '04 G35. It'* in the shop so they gave her a loaner, an '07 G35x. She handed me the keys at lunchtime. Honestly, it didn't have the low end I expected it would have, but beyond 3,500 - 4000 rpms it revved pretty quickly, and it was damn quick! I wish my Bonne could shift at 7500.

I wish I had more money...I could seriously drive one of those.

Does it have the 3.5? Or did they drop in a bigger engine?

Low end isn't bad at all...

How many people clicked on this thinking it was actually about the real G spot???

That'* what I want to know

Topic-related: I've never driven a G35 before but I sure like the coupes.

the lack of low end power is probably because its a heavy AWD sedan.....

If I had the money i'd take the new CTS over that any day. A much better looking and higher quality car for the same price. And with the new 3.6L VVT-DI, an equally powered motor to boot.

I'd have to agree, then again I'd take a new CTS over a kidney
