Yes...I know that. Just joking, but alas, I see nothing of interest in Infiniti. The rest at least have interesting models (except Lincoln or Cadillac), my opinion of course.

Infinitis remind me of plastic surgery, and it never looks natural or good.

I did mess up the quote though, "An Infiniti is just a Nissan with lipstick." ;-)

Which is why seeing an I30, I35, G20, and QX4, I feel it's just a Nissan. Especially the first 3. The QX4 looks slightly different than a Pathfinder though.

PS, for a while, the G35 coupé and sedan were sold as the Nissan Skyline in Australia.

Bad analogy. While the outside appearance is similar, underneath the cars are quite different.

Nice job on the facelift. You're bold for going for those cheapo ebay headlamps!

Thanks!

lol, yeah, I've had several people tell me that now.

Thing is, I haven't seen a single E46 with these headlights here in Denmark yet, so that was one of the reasons for picking these. The light output on these is far superior to the stock halogen ones I've had, although they're of course not as good as original xenons. IMO they dramatically change the look of the front of the car, making it look newer and more modern than it actually is.

I've just installed a aftermarket xenonkit instead of the standard halogen bulbs, and the light output is SO much better. And not even blinding anyone either, so that's a win/win for everyone.

That's just silly. Shouldn't name a car the same that has a different drivetrain...especially when it was such a hailed and iconic car.

Interesting headlights, not something I've seen before. The square corona rings remind me of the F12 6-series' LED headlights:

Thumb resize.

What does the eyebrow above the lights do?

Yeah they actually look pretty similar.

The eyebrow on my headlights really doesn't do anything, except light up in a orange'ish color with the parking lights (the square rings).

Unless it's a really bright and sunny day, the parking lights works just fine for DRL, as especially the rings are really, really bright.

It's the same thing in Japan.

In Japan, R32/33/34 Skylines are just crappy old cars that nobody wants. They aren't any more storied than any crummy kei car driving around.

That's because the G37 isn't based on the Altima, it's based on the 370Z. It was the same story with the G35 being based on the 350Z.

95% of the parts in my I30 come from a Nissan Maxima. It is also cheaper to get parts at the Nissan dealership than the Infiniti dealership even though they have the same exact part numbers and Nissan stampings.

Edit: BTW those vertical lines are not scratches they are rain drops, I took this pic in the rain with my lifeproofed 4S. Just after spending 3hours washing and waxing it. :/
