You couldn't be more wrong about the DRL manufacturers in this country .All Honda, Acura, Toyota, Lexus, Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Buick, Chrysler, Subaru, BMW, Audi, Mercedes, VW, Volvo, Suzuki, Hyundai, Kia, and Sabb have DRLs standard on their models.
Nissan and Infiniti is one of the only MAJOR auto manufacturer in this country, I think except for Ford, who doesn't offer DRLs on their models right now. There might be 2 or 3 smaller manufacturers who don't, I'm not sure about Mazda or Mitsubishi but as you can see from the list above, the overwhelming majority in this country have DRLs standard on their vehicles.
Now, I'm not trying to say that Nissan and Infiniti HAS to put DRLs on their vehicles, I just think it be nice if they do some unique/cool thing with white LED DRLs! I think it would really complement the RED LED tail lights they have on a good majority of their products, especially Infiniti since none of their Japanese competition has done a white LED DRL thing yet. They could be the first one if they played their cards right but I don't think they have any intention to do so!
Plus, that is only one study your quoting. I have seen other studies showing that people with DRLs have a reduced risk of accidents since people have a better chance of seeing you then in none equipped DRL vehicles during the daylight hours! I have had more close calls in my Nissan, that doesn't have DRLs, then in my Acura that does. I believe that they do help avoid/reduce the amount of accidents because other drivers can see you better during the day. I'm not saying you can't have an accident with DRLs, I just think they do help to a point and I'm sick of hearing the argument that they can blind people sometimes when they are oncoming. Maybe if you have a eye problem or an eye disease, but for people like me with normal vision, I have never had problems with DRLs blinding me. In fact, I feel I notice cars better that have the DRLs then those that don't!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but on the headlight knob I just turn it forward to manually turn DRL's on and then I just leave it like that. Seeing as how I"m never in front of the car, does this mean the lights only come on when its dark? because I never have to turn my lights on at night they are always on. Until I turn the car off.

If you live in the US, there is no DRLs on any Infiniti's or Nissan's! They don't come with them at all. If you turn it forward during the day, your actually putting on either your parking lights, or if you turn it all the way, your actually Xenon headlights would then be on all day!
Again, there are no DRLs on any of these cars! Personally, I just leave it on auto and the headlights automatically come on at night when it gets dark enough.

#254 of 259 FRONT LICENSE PLATE

Has anyone removed the front license plate and bracket from a G37S convertible? If so, with what did you plug the holes? Are you satisfied with the look?

I can tell you, that if you park on the street, you will get a ticket.

When I got mine, the dealer said they had plugs to fill the holes. You might want to check with your dealer's parts department. I've seen some G37's here in NC (where no front tag is required) without a front bracket, and it looks very nice and clean.

I asked my dealer if they had any and they said no. Of course, I'm not overly impressed with them

I am looking at purchasing a 2010 Infiniti G37 and joining the infinity family. I have identified a specific car, but have one remaining concern before sealing the deal. I noticed while I was test driving it, that if I apply some pressure the steering column has about half an inch to an inch of play (i.e. moves up and down a little bit). The salesperson claims that it is natural movement in the gear (like how you can push a car a little bit back and forth when it is in park).
I am concerned that while it isn't much now it might quickly get worse. Does anyone know anything about this? Should I be concerned? Is it normal?

I do not think that movement is normal.
I have a 2009 G37, and the steering column doesn't move at all.
