Oh, I have to answer you on this because, as you know, I'm one of the hissing/humming complainers, if not the only one! First, of all, my three GTP's, when I was the owner, had no glitches. No warranty work was ever done. Nothing was ever done. Just maintenance was done and whatever the dealer told me should be replaced, gas filters, different services (i.e., 30,000 mile service), transmission fluid changed, fuel injection service, etc. At the mileage when something should be done, I had the service performed. Where I live I paid enough for this car and I'm fighting on principle. What year is your GXP? If it's a 2005, I wouldn't complain either!!! You got a $4,000 discount on it so that makes up for the humming/hissing noise or any problem for that matter. Mine is a 2006; I didn't care about the $4,000 discount, I wanted a 2006. So why if GM knew they were aware of the problem in the 2005's, put the piece of junk in the 2006? Can you answer that please? And, I don't call the idiots at CAC daily. I learned after calling them a few times in the beginning that they are not only worthless, useless; they are downright plain stupid. I know more than they do. And I have only written to GM twice -- actually very nice letters -- and they didn't even reply. So, what does that tell you? They just don't care. I'm dealing with the humming/hissing now; I don't even pay attention to it anymore. It only lasts a few seconds then goes off. When my three year warranty is up, I'll trade this car in or sell it myself, and buy a new car! A lession to be learned -- you don't buy a new model in its early stages. You buy the car after it's been on the market for a few years but a brand new version!!! So, I goofed. I also refuse to fill out any questionaires. I send them back "I'll fill this out when you fix my humming/hissing noise!!" Chats1

"I like the BMW's too, but the G35 Infiniti Coupe, much better, but my problem is also rear wheel drive. The coupe has rear wheel drive, but the sedan is all-wheel drive or front wheel drive. I don't like the Sedan in the G35. I need a car with front wheel drive."
The Infiniti G35 Sedan is RWD or AWD. The I35 was FWD.
The (fairly strong) rumor is that the BMW 3 Series Coupe will offer an AWD variant - by next year. With a 300 HP & TQ twin turbo I6.
Who could jump to BMW (ED with my Daughter), if the sedan version of the 3 Series also becomes available with that motor . .

Now that AC season is here in Massachusetts, I'll probably leave my plastic stirrer/straw in the ashtray. But in September, I'll insert my automatic snowflake depresser and will not have to deal with it again until next May. And I stopped calling and writing GM about it. I'm pretty disappointed they weren't willing to provide a technical solution for me, but I'm going to start enjoying the car. I've only had it six weeks, 2000 miles.
