Decided to ditch the Hyundai. Good car for the time I had it but in a little under two years it was already starting to develop mechanical annoyances (weird squealing when turning the wheel at low speed in cold and/or wet weather, transmission shifts were gradually getting jerkier and more erratic) and show wear in ways inside and out that irked me. So, I wanted out and into something I've always adored.
Specifically, it's a 2013 Infiniti G37x Coupe in Vibrant Red -- Journey trim with the Premium package. It's glorious. The absolute perfect spec for me would have been the G37xS but they're hard to come by and I didn't like the condition of any of the ones I came across before this. Agreeable price, low-ish miles (44k) -- couldn't say no.
I had it shipped over from a Carmax in Ohio and took delivery on Halloween. The most wear it has is with the driver's seat (nothing cracked or torn but some wear and sagging on the outer bolsters). Paint is in good shape and none of the peeling/damaged interior trim these cars often get.
Very happy to have a VQ engine back in my possession and with a sound that puts a grin on my face with every acceleration opportunity.
No specific mods planned for now outside of some Blizzak WS90s maybe within a month.
