This is why taking cars to be worked on places makes me cringe...

Nonetheless, glad you caught it early and were able to make some good progress.

Jesus that is definitely cringe-worthy to see. Glad you caught that before it became a major safety concern Mike!

Any interest in ever doing the '10-'13 sport front end swap on the car? A lot of the late year G35/early G37 guys are doing it now.

Thanks guys. Yeah fortunately all that was sorted before it got worse.

I haven't really thought about doing a front end swap. It's a possibility if something bad happens to my front bumper but other than that my older style works for me.

I guess I need to check this forum more often! Congrats Mike, it's a lovely car and you sure deserve it! Good call on the new headlights, I restore them all the time and it drives me crazy how quickly the oxidation comes back. And cheeez, that brake job... I echo the sentiments above, people ask me why I don't just give myself a break sometimes and farm things out- this is why. Love the car, especially the pretty black leather :) I feel like, in a lot of ways, it's a modern replacement for your i30, except without being such a pain to get anything done on! I hope, anyways. There's gotta be more room around that motor than in the 3.5 i30 :lol:

Thanks Rachel. 100% same boat as you on the headlight resto. I've done it, and watched them yellow too.

Overall the car is miles nicer than the i30 and I'm happy with it. I do miss how raw the i30 is in terms of power though. The feeling that it had 100 more hp than it should, the gearing was a tad too short and the throttle was touchy. That all makes for a very untamed delivery of power. The G is waaay more refined, not as quick and overall smoother. I would like to open the G up a bit more and tune it myself but I'll have to part out the i30 before that happens.
