Pics of my new tint...

My gf got it done for me for my birthday I can't believe how much better my car looks with tint. 15% all around.

You have a pretty cool girlfriend. Maybe you can pay her back by buying her a BMW

All you have to do now is take off the Infiniti lettering (its a bit redundant considering the infiniti logo is above the letters) on the trunk, paint match the chrome tail on the trunk and paint the chrome matte black for a more OEM-finish.

Congrats on the tint - it looks great! With the tint, now your car and mine look 100% identical.

And I agree with other posters about the chrome butt, I've considered adding the stock spoiler rather than paint matching the chrome. I would also consider gun-metal chroming out the front grille too, if I had $$ for mods right now.

Looks great man. I'm not gonna lie, this car would look sick if it had tinted headlights, and I usually hate tinted headlights. You should get the chrome grille and tail lip painted black chrome, and when you have the money, get some new wheels.

Man...scratch the tinted headlights...if you could just open up the headlight assembly and ditch the chrome in favor of black chrome it'd look SO badass.

lol you've got me dreaming of things to do.

I was going to say...get the spoiler. Only one I've seen with a spoiler on it was a red one in the showroom at my local dealer when I was getting my I30's oil changed but G37's look amazing with the factory spoiler.

Nice! Do it!

OT, that EVO in the background looks pretty mean.
