Now this is interesting. It actually looks like it's not that hard to install paddle shifters yourself if comfortable with basic maintenance. This guy has the wood package & added them himself. The wiring is all there & no reprogramming of the ECM is required or anything. Plug & play... kinda. Check this out.

I agree with you that I didn't care much for the aluminum trim. Since I see, and enjoy, the wood trim all the time as opposed to the few times I would have used the paddle shifters or any improved summer traction, it didn't seem like it was too difficult of a choice; but that's just for me.
Good luck on whatever you choose.

Me too. I had to decide between the Sport package or the wheat interior that I really liked (the wood trim was not a big factor to me). I ended up going with the Sport package and graphite interior. I actually like the aluminum trim and I'm glad how everything turned out, I just wish Infiniti (hello, are you listening!) would let the customer pick which interior (and exterior color) they like and not limit their choices seemingly arbitrarily. Is there something wrong with have a G35S and wheat/wood interior? Does the car not go as fast??
#186 of 355 2007 Infiniti G35 Sedam - Tires
Jan 11, 2008 (8:09 pm)
I recently got my 2007 Infiniti G35 Sedan and need to get new tires. Rather than getting new tires I'm going for all seasons. However the front and rears have different sizes on them right now.
I want to know if it's ok to have the same tire size on fronts and rears? Also can someone recommend some affordable but good tires?

You can get all season Goodyear F1s in the staggered set up. I have them, and they're great, especially in wet and cold. Go to Tire Rack and you'll see them.

It's more for the paddle shifters... and the exterior fascia but I think that can even be added. I guess I just have to decide rather the wood trim or paddle shifters are more important. I really don't like the look of the plain aluminum trim. What sucks is there probably isn't even a reason to limit the wood trim on G35XS.
Hey everyone... I've been missing for a few weeks. (Wife had a baby)
Ya know, I wanted the S so bad, but with my horrible commute in NE, I decided to go with the X model. Also, I wanted the rosewood trim which is not available in sport models. The X is also so damn good in the snow, that I doubt I'd want to go back and change my mind for the S, if I had it to do over again.
I now have a set of Infiniti OEM Paddle Shifters on order, should have them in a week or 2.
Our cars (even the 07's) are pre-wired for the paddles and it's a fairly easy install. They cost me $195 shipped.
When the install is complete, I'll have exactly what I wanted.
AWD, Wood Trim, and Paddle Shifters.
I'm also looking at a few different body kits. I'm liking the new Nismo front lip, but I'm waiting for US availability, to avoid huge shipping costs from Japan.
#189 of 355 Advice needed: Price no object - Need new 2005 G35x All Season Tires
Jan 15, 2008 (12:45 pm)
My OEM BG Turanza EL42 lasted 59,000 miles (yup!) on my 2005 G35x Sedan. I was going to replace them with the same given my good tread life, but I read reviews on them and realized I could probably get better tires for the snow/ice in Michigan, but I can't figure out which ones.
If price was NO object, which tires would you suggest for ALL SEASON performance. Not a lot of heavy snow but ice/slush and rain in the winters are a factor. Lots of freeway driving. I've researched what I can (tirerack, consumer reports, googled the heck out of web, and reviewed this forum) but I can't come close to deciding. Local tire store suggested Michelin MXV4 but I think there are better out there.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Good Year Triple tred. I have them on a 05X. A little noisy, but wow, great in snow, not bad on ice. They really seem to stick. We like them. Only have about 2,500 miles at this point.

This is for a different vehicle (my wife's X3), but we replaced the OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL-42s with Goodyear Eagle F1 All Seasons, and both the handling and the ride are greatly improved.
#192 of 355 TPMS with Aftermarket Winter Wheel Tire Set
Jan 26, 2008 (5:52 pm)
Just wanted to report that the TPMS light on the dash doesn't bother me at all using a set of winter treads where I didn't install the TPMS sensors. I will search through the Service Manual to see if it says anything about being able to disable it. As long as there isn't any audible signal, I'm fine with it.
2008 G35XS Rocks!
