caught my eye on a drive this morning...REALLY?

a bit blurry..iphone snap..but it was the best i could do while driving

...maybe im wrong but it seems that some G35 drivers feel like they have something to prove...anyhow, i got a good chuckle out of it

Heh, funny. Maybe he had an M3 in the past and "upgraded" to the Infiniti? He could have had an older E30/36/46/etc. I'm sure he's smart enough to know that that car is no way faster than a new M3....at least I hope he would know....and in that case, I hope you would show him.

Maybe he had a 911 Turbo and then had to downgrade because of the economy lol.

This is funny. It is laughable how some people really overstate their cars. I was at a car meet on Friday where a guy in a bone stock Nismo 370Z was boasting about how is car is faster then mine and could hit 0-60 in 3.5. I was just thinking "yeah right". All the comparisons that I have seen put the 135 up against the Nismo 370Z and the numbers are pretty equal.

i owned a G35 before my M. the G doesnt stand a chance.

with prices being so low, my guess it was a kid thinking their car is a beast. another reason why i sold my G.

while that is pretty ridiculous you never know what he has under the hood. with a stock exhaust though i doubt he has anything to back up his claim.

Just for kicks and giggles I would've pulled up beside him, give him the thumbs up and accelerate away just to see what he got underneath the hood. I highly doubt it since he's running with the stock exhaust and chrome rims. However, If he had something in there I would definitely stop. If not, i'll just do it over and over just to ruin his day... LOL!

He might be an EX BMW M3 owner though.

Hmmm, he might have gone Infiniti since BMW owners have no friends. Hahhahha...

It would make sense if he had a front license plate since that's what we'd see. I've never met an Infiniti G driver who wasn't a douche.

Last Saturday I was at Pacific Raceways for HPDE. After lunch time, couple guys came with their 20 year old civics and miatas. They didn't have hood on their cars (I don't know why). One of them revv'ed his engine while passing us. It is funny, because we had a F430, a twin-turbo 1000hp Gallardo, 2 R8 V10s, countless GT3/RSs and usual blend of M3s, 911s, and Corvettes etc that day

Maybe he used to have a different car and then traded it in for the G and simply transfered the tags?? Or really is just a clueless douche.

you should have pulled up to see whether he was crying that he didn't get to purchase an M3; hence the license plate.
