(Un)professional photo shoot - G37S 6MT

So my buddy and I decided to grab a decent 35mm camera (which neither of us has any clue how to operate) and take some decent pics of the new car yesterday. Our decidedly unprofessional (unamateur really) results follow:


















































Let me know what you guys think.....

wow, that looks 10x better than the one I saw on the highway here! Needs some tint IMO.

I really like the looks of the new G. I didn't like it at first but after seeing one in person it definitely looks hot.

This car is hot. Pictures does not do this car any justice, it looks so much better in person. Nice car and the pics are not that bad, could've been bigger.

No Offense, but if you like it that's all that matters.

3 recommendations:

- Remove the infiniti lettering on the trunk. The Logo is suffice.

- Have the chrome lip on the trunk paint matched the color of the car.

- Have the chrome grill on the front of the car paint matched the color of the car.

*If you like the titanium finish look, have the wheels powdercoated a darker gray.

Afterwards, the car will look perty.

The only pics that I liked were the ones next to the dumpster. It definately did justice.

Looks good, but I think something needs to be done about the taillights. In this case (I'm usually against tinting head/taillights 99% of the time) there's just too much red. I'd consider Los Angeles recommendations: black out the chrome, and get the wheels refinished in a darker silver. Other than that it looks great! Very clean. How many miles on it now?

This is actually the direction I was planning on going......

Nice, I managed about 400 in a week lol. You must be driving that thing non-stop. Hey could you post a pic of a close up of your instrument panel, both when the car's on and off? Thx.

I really love the rear end of this car...looks very sporty. The issue I have is the front...it just doesn't match the back. Interior looks very well integrated.

Seats look REALLY nice from what I can see, definitely a step up from the last iteration. Can you get some full shots?
