First off, I know what it is in Japan, however, I do not live in Japan. Secondly, do you not see the 350gt emblem making it even worse?

Not sure about else where, but here in cali, i see it all the time. G35's badged as nissan skyline 350gt, RSX badged as Honda Integra, etc etc. They pay a quite a lot of money for those badges and to be honest, im not sure why they do it.

jdm whores?

It's accurate though. Skyline's the JDM designation, and it has a 3.5L V6, so...

Not sure what the problem is... Maybe take off that Infiniti logo and replace with a Nissan one.

He's not trying to be someone he's not, just taking the alternate name. Just like VW people who put the older names like rabbit.

Right and if the car was in japan it would be normal. But my guess is he's in america, where its called the g35.

It's like people with BMWs who drive around with german license plates.

Debadging a car that is actually the cars badge from another country is not neccessarily riced. If it would've have a GTR logo then that would've been bad. I don't see anything wrong with this at all. Even worse if it had a M3 logo like i've seen done on some Civics, now that's riced.

He has the Japanese name for the car. This isn't japan. Ok. 3.5. GT? Uhm, not sure about that one.

Then there's German cars with german lisence plates. This isn't Germany.

Rice? Uhm, it's a bit cheesy I guess w/ the 3.5GT?

It is a 3.5 motor.

GT? Lost on that one.
