    Got a new daily.

    Decided to sell the Acura after it was t boned and never got repaired correctly and picked this up. I'm loving it so far much more than the Acura. It's the Red Sport 400 horsepower model and it has a few bolt ons already to make a little more. I love this color too.

    Disregard the mess in the driveway, we are getting a whole brand new A/C system.

    That is nice and I'm not really an Acura fan. When are the twin turbos going on?

    Nice! I wanted to look at those before I bought my 6th gen but they took forever to come out. Wife has a 2015 Q50 which is nice enough but I still would like to check out a red sport. Can't say that I've even seen one on the road.

    I needed 4 doors and some room to carry things.

    The red is called Dynamic Sunstone Red so it is kind of a metallic dusk looking color. I do not like red cars but this red is completely different looking.

    Yeah I'll have to take a pic in the sun tomorrow after I wash it, it looks incredible in sunlight.

    I looked hard at those last year. Definitely a bit of a sleeper and I see they already "fixed" the terrible infotainment system Infiniti uses. Enjoy!

    Nice! My friend is considering that ride. He says they are massively de-tuned and don't take much to really wake up

    This is true, people have run high 10s with just bolt on and tune on E30.

    That's actually an aftermarket piece that was added be the previous owner. The only thing I don't like about it is you have to tether your phone to it using hotspot to get navigation on it.

    yeah, that's what I meant was that the last owner fixed it. The stock system is pretty universally hated.

    I test drove a q60 coupe and they are cute cars. Unfortunately the previous owner straight piped the exhaust and it sounded horrible. The car drove fine though. How are they for reliability? I never hear much about Nissan issues

    Straight piped would sound horrible on this car, the previous owner put an Fi catback on it and it sounds pretty good, loud enough to hear but not obnoxious at all.

    Nice. Iíve seen them getting popular on some truck forums but boot up seemed slow and a lot of people complaining about HVAC always defaulting to off when you first turn it on

    Maybe on the Mark 1 or 2 but the Mark 3 does not boot slow and the HVAC stays on whatever you leave it on, it's actually a pretty nice unit. Only thing I the found about it is I couldn't get Google maps to work, it would pull up the map with the blue dot showing you where you are but the map was blank. The previous owner said to try Waze do I'll do that tomorrow sometime.
