    The 35X being AWD will eat some of the mileage.

    I had a 2007 G35 coupe and enjoyed it but the seats/headroom are a little tight.

    True, but I really like pinning the throttle to the floor and having all four wheels tenaciously grip the road as the unsuspecting are left in the dust.

    Don't tell my wife...

    Thank you for your experience / feedback

    Picked up a 2005 G35 with 43k or less than 5k per year. Really great cosmetic condition for the year . Not too fast but great balance of speed,looks, comfort,luxury, economy, and the car really drives great. I like it and thank you for your input!

    Mustang is a done deal,it s gone.

    The G35 is bone stock , needs a few cosmetic mods, seat tear, door dings , and some tires to start. Probably air intake and exhaust after that.

    So I got this email today from a "kid" (call it a hunch) interested in my car:

    "Sweet. My names "Bob", I really like the car could i see more pictures? What do you think you get on average for gas milage? And is the car loud? I love loud cars, my current Mitsubishi Lancer non Evo non Turbo has after market exhaust and is loud but I won't something faster and louder to show off a bit when i arrive at school. You can Contact me at my personal email [email protected] and maybe we can schedule a time where i can come look at the car with my mom or something."

    I changed the name and email address. Sounds like some kid trying to get his mom to buy him a car he has no business in. I want to sell my car, but not to this guy. Thoughts?

    My response: Honestly, I don't think this is the car for you. I modded the car to be fast, but not to show off in. It is loud, but also dangerous with the wrong driver. Best of luck

    Wills upholstery off the blvd has been around for decades. Right across the street from the old Kimnach Ford off George St. In Norfolk.
