First M35 owner on NICO I think. Welcome! Pics are nice, but we'll need a few reviews as you break the car in. Hook a fella up and give me a ride sometime!

Yeah...that's an Xbox Dashboard, right? But it looks different...is there a package that comes with an integrated Xbox, or is it modded?

Beatiful car. If I could have any current Nissan, the M would be it.Hows the VQ move the car? Is it powerful enough? I haven't heard what anyone has to say about the VQ powered M yet.

I see you took my advice and joined up! Welcome, I look forward to seeing your ride at local CSi meets!! I know you're leasing it, but any plans besides the optional body kit?

The M35 runs high 14's according to a comparo I read in Motor trend... it won first in that review in a v6 sport-lux competition.

Of course the M45 (high 13's) won first in a C&D comparison that was based on price...so the BMW and the Benz had a 6cyl.

The new M's actually do play DVD's stock, but will automatically switch to the rear monitor only once the car is in motion.

well the only thing that needs to change is a wire to the navi which is currently connected to the parking break - I need to disconnect that from the parking break and connected to an ignition power wire so that when the car is on it will play DVD’s until I switch to the map or ac controls.

As far as the car - its fully loaded - i got every option except the drop down 10" monitor. The x-box is connected via included inputs in the car.

The engine is far more powerful than I ever expected. Once I give it some throttle, it races to the red line. For those who are familiar with the south bay - I got the car to go from 0-120 mph on the stretch of PCH from Anza to about Calle Mayor. The car handles great specially with the sport package - no body roll and stops on a dime.

Uh M5?

Try 500HP 8,000 RPM V10.

Infiniti isn't even close.

BMW leads, everyone else follows when it comes to sports sedans.

M35 is nice. And yeah the M5 is a road killer. Now an M45 with a supercharger would be interesting.

neverends, welcome to NICO!

Great to see the new M making its way into some enthusiasts' garages!

I smell a homepage writeup - Any desire to draft a quick "review" from an owners' standpoint? We already have the pics...

Cute.

Tell that to every single automotive critic. They'll tell you how the G35 spanks the 3-series and the M45 spanks the 5-series. It's only a matter of time.

YES!! Or a turbocharger!

Unfortunately, the only turbocharger for the M45 (and 2002+ Q45) engine is no longer in business - as far as I can tell. Keuylian Motors bit the dust some time back.

You can still find their turbo-charged Q45s up for sale on rare occasions by the owners, but I wonder what the reliability of the implementation was and if it was at all maintenable.

One would think the supercharger or turbocharger would be a very good possibility within a year's time based on how well the car is selling. The G35/350z's had these products even quicker based on their sales.
