I though the new awd coupes came standard with the 7sp auto. Now the paddle shifters may or may not be another issue. Dealers do have the paddle shifter kit for the 07 and 08 sedans, which maybe would fit the coupes, not sure if there are any real differences there as far as the instrument pods. The paddle shifters on the coupe sure look the same as the ones I have on my 08 xs.joker350gt wrote:A shop did and they swaped an rb26 and the full r34 gtr drive train into one.
It cost more tham 60k i think and to top it off they made it look riced out by adding a wing on top of the stock spoiler .
Go get a g37x but dont expect to get a manual or even the 7sp or paddle shifters for that mater.

Note that we have been speaking of a new 2009 G37 AWD coupe. I have a 2008 xs sedan and really like it. I also liked the coupe with one exception that pretty much killed the idea. That is the back seat. Not often, but often enough I do carry people in the back seat. While I am not all that tall and I did find that back seat had enough leg room, I found that I could not sit there for long with my head against the back window. Another inch or two and just maybe I would have gotten one, but then I really wanted awd at the time and at the time the sedan was the only way to go. If I was buying now then just maybe the new AWD coupe would have persuaded me that I didn't need any back seat passengers.G35ttbaconboy wrote:Dam i was hoping that i could have bought a cheap 03 04 g35 coupe and got a salvage g35x and done some swapping that's really a let down cause to buy a g37 is WAY out of my budget cause i was looking to spend like 15K for both. Plus i do not like 4 door cars

You'll never need to touch the rear because the transfer case is built into the engine itself. I had planned to do it to my own 03 Z, and a customers g35 coupe when he kept blowing engines from his SC, but nothing came of that idea thus far.
now that I have time, and $ I've been rethinking this project lately.
