    '03 Infiniti G35 coupe. When I paid it off, I thought of replacing it with the newer G37, but I prefer the styling of mine.

    same, except the '03 model has the worst sounding brakes in the entire world and the car belongs in the pseudo-luxe category as a result. i wanna upgrade to something else just because of this, but it is paid for and i hardly drive anymore now that i live in the city.

    what's wrong with the brakes on those just curious? is it a general problem with that model in that year? just a cosmetic issue sound or a mechanical problem?

    LOL! Seems you have the AT model with the weak brakes. If not, and you own the MT with Brembos like me, do not, by any means, buy the OEM brake shoes. Go to tirerack.com and if you want an upgrade, get Hawks. If not, get Satisfied, which are cheaper than OEM and 10 times better. You can get Satisfied brand for the AT's too, and they wont squeal like a pig en route to the slaughterhouse.

    '01 Volvo S60 T5 with a few mods. As with any Euro car approaching the 10 year mark, it has had given it's share of headaches, but I've seen and dealt with a lot worse.

    2007 Is250 with F-Sport Package. I wanted the 350, but at he time I was afraid it was too much power for my wife who has never driven rear wheel drive and has never had over 150 horse in a car. It is not the fastest, but the F-sport parts do help it handle better, which is far more important than top speed. If I wanted speed I would build another 300Zx twin turbo up to 400 or 500 horse.
