Thanks for the compliments yall!
My opinion on the exhaust note is kind of tainted by the fact that I had the ARK exhaust on my G37 coupe which honestly can't be beat plus the cabin is really well insulated IMHO. However, at throttle the exhaust note sounds aggressive and authoritative for a factory system. Explaining it is hard and I can't think of a single word that encapsulates the sound. If I had to place it in a range between stock G37/Q60 exhaust and my old ARK exhuast, I'd say it sits just shy of the middle. I will say that the exhaust, boost and transmission all work in tandem to give the driver what I call 'sensation bombardment' at green lights. There is no turbo lag with this boss, and it has already freaked me out since I was so used to the throttle lag on the G.
Ride quality is really an fun experience with all the drive modes, even with the **** run flats. I can't wait to swap them out for real tires. An interesting side note that some may not know, but since these whips come with run flats Infiniti doesn't include a spare astro tire, fix-a-flat and most surprising of all a scissor jack. This surprised me cause I tend to use the scissor jack when doing oil changes, brakes and whatnot. I called my rep and that's when he told me about the run flat reasoning. When I told him that doesn't make sense because what about being able to rotate the tires and that's when he said it's really just a way to get you to go back to the dealership (go figure). I had him get my old scissor jack and accessories from my old G so it's all good, but just thought it might be worth mentioning.
The ride height isn't too bad but I'm itching to give it a clean drop with some 10mm spacers (maybe 15mm). I ran Swift's and 15mm spacers on my G37 and loved them, but of course there is nothing out yet for these so I'll just have to be patient. I also heard that Stillen is already hard at work on developing various upgrades.
And yes, they gave me a little microfiber towel at the dealer and I looked at them when I was signing like 'what the **** is this for?'. Now it sits in the center console in a baggy.
