  1. But an ADM G37/Q60 is more like $25k, if you can find one. Still, well worth the extra money IMHO for the working/English stereo and navi, cheaper insurance, cruise control, dual seat memory, self-cleaning/levelling headlights, and various other nice touches that the ADM G37/Q60 has.
  2. It has Akebono brakes, so highly likely it is a Japanese 370GT. Are the buttons on the centre console/under the screen in Japanese? I bet they are. If so, it is a Jap import Skyline, not an Infiniti. But people love chucking the badges on. FYI generally speaking an actual Aus delivered G37 (one of which I own) is worth $7k-$10k more, as it has Australian sales history, is unlikely to be wound back (well less likely than a Jp 370GT, which are routinely wound back), has Australian buttons and stereo (which means you can actually use them here), most (if not all) have cruise control, and various other things. The Jp 370GTs do have Akebono brakes (which are superior), 360 cameras (the ADM version has reversing only), and a few other little things different.
  3. 9.5 +10 on the back shouldn't sit 20-25mm outside the rear guards .... not on a V35 anyhow. On the front they will though. Especially if you are stock height and the wheels have no camber. I find this an extremely useful resource. If you plug in the oem wheel sizes, you can then compare other width/offsets and it will tell you internal clearance, as well as offset from centre outside the guards. https://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator
  4. You will get a LOT of different opinions, but for a lightly lowered daily driver, I think the perfect fitment for a V35 is: Front 9.5 +20 Rear 10.5 +12 You will need to tuck these a tad from stock, but lowering your car will naturally do this a bit, and there tends to be enough adjustment in the stock setup to get enough camber for a little tuck. 9.5" +38 on the rear would be weak, and sit a heap inside the guards (like 3cm+ inside). For the front it would NEARLY be ok, but wouldn't sit flush unless you are stock height.
  5. Looks amazing mate! I am still stuck in a white ADM G37 .... still enjoying it though thus far.
  6. Almost no-one does Supercharger kits anymore, as they cost about the same as a turbo kit, yet produce very little extra power. Spending $10k+ (more than the value of the car) for an extra 50kw at the wheels is just dumb. If you want a fast car, buy a better one.
  7. Looks like it will fit. G35 and V35 are identical cars when it comes to bodykits. Can't imagine why it wouldn't fit.
  8. First of all you need to buy a dual din kit to replace the hole that the oem stereo leaves, and in which to bolt a single/dual din replacement stereo. Check this thread (and search the forums for all your V35 info) and this thread is very useful too The kit you want looks like this (but source an OEM unit - avoid Metra/Aerpro kits - they have cheap rubbery buttons and are nasty quality-wise): https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/AERPRO-FP997604-SINGLE-DOUBLE-DIN-FACIA-KIT-FOR-NISSAN-SKYLINE-V35-350GT/172284374456 Join the Aus V35 Facebook groups is your best bet - they occasionally pop up for sale in there.
  9. Did you pay to have a full mechanical inspection on the car prior to purchase? If not, then yes, you made a big mistake. Second hand cards are buyer beware - what you bought is what you bought. If you didn't bother/pay to find out the cars full history prior to purchasing, then sorry to say, but fool you. Getting a full service done by a qualified mechanic may help your fuel economy issues, but generally your right foot is the thing responsible for bad fuel economy. These are not terribly economical cars at the best of times though - the power they make for the size of unboosted engine is quite amazing imho, and the penalty for this is bad fuel economy.
  10. Very cool! How did you attach it underneath? I will be interested to hear an update the first time you scrape it on something and see if it hold up. With the amount of potholes and spoon drains here in SA it would last about a week on my car
  11. Not sure who else can do it, but Nissan most certainly can do it - they are lying. And they hate imports.
  12. Not sure, but an oil change should help. You NEED to service the V36 at 5,000km intervals - anything else is torture on the engine and will lead to a premature demise.
  13. I recently hired an X-Trail when in Qld and they have a flat bit at the bottom of the steering wheel oem. I actually loved driving with it.
  14. Completely agree Christian - I think it is awesome. When I bought my ADM G37 I really wanted to get a 3l TT Q60 but sadly was out of my price range ... I bet these would be a more affordable option, and are 90% as good as the Q60 imho. If we don't get them here that will suck, but the new version of SEVS coming in soon(ish) will make cars like this available to us anyhow.
