I do know the difference between, to, too, and two. Heck, I even know the difference between they're, there, and their! :D

I barely skated through college.

yeah -- but there are a crap load of people on this site that do NOT understand the difference between break and brake... which for a "supposed" car guy is just plain stupid!

I've had only the gas gauge problem with mine that got taken car of under warranty.

I'm at 67k and she runs like the first day i got her. Few little rattles here and there, but nothing that can't be tightened up.

Just look at her. Hottness!

But a brake breaks momentum and motors and engines both turn. It might be quite confusing for those who aren't big fans of education and/or haven't been around grammar snobs or etymology courses.

Hi - I am reading through some old emails and seeing this one. I just got my '04 M45 with 59k mile and I am sooo happy. I've been looking for a few years trying to get a "cherry" "04 and finally found a local one here in Tampa. This car is so unique, love the style, power, ride - all for $7k, plus $1400 to change all the fluids, new brakes and new rear shocks so $8,400 and I'm all set. Yes - a little on the higher side but to me it's like a brand car now. Sold my truck for $15k so I have this car and $7k cash money. I have yet to see another one around this area - which I love. I've already had a couple people compliment me on the car - only one guy really knew what it was and asked if it was on '03 or '04. All is well - I will continue to catch up on old threads.

I have a Y34 M45. Going by auto magazines test/review, it looks like the Y34 was quicker 0-60 and quarter. Which makes sense, as it is heavier. Is the difference noticeable?

I do like the low end power of the VK45, and always wondered what it would be like if it was dropped into a G50 Q45. The VH45 is a great motor, but the VK45 definitely has more power off the line. I do miss the mid range power of the VH45, especially when passing cars on two lane roads.

I actually in some ways prefer the VH45 over the VK, no oil burning and just seems to be better built..well I actually had the VH41, but I really enjoyed it..it also had this natural whine to it whenever you would accelerate or rev it out, sounded so nice.

And the Y34 had different gearing, that is prolly why you see it accelerate quicker.

I'm a VH45 fan, as well. I miss my 94 Q45. Actually, I'm looking for a G50 in good shape as a "keeper" or the Sunday drive car. I'm finding that they are getting harder to find. It is by far the best car that Infiniti has built, perhaps the best that Nissan has. My father, a diehard American car guy, said, " Why can't we build cars like this?"

The funny thing is when i test drove the Chevy SS, I kept thinking how much it reminded me of the Q45. Come to think of it, the SS and Q45 have a lot in common. Both were great sleepers that just didn't sell well, due in part to its price and sedate looks. I'm leery about buying the SS as a used car, though. Now that the Aussies don't build cars anymore, I'm not sure what parts availability will like. Q45 did have good parts support, and still does for a 27 years old car. There aren't cheap, but they last if you replaced them. I bought my Q45 at 98K, traded it in at 250K. The only thing I had to repair was the right hand valve cover, which was leaking oil when I bought it.

If anyone in California is selling a well maintained Q45, please contact me. Ideally, a 1994-1995 in good mechanical shape. Under 125K miles and front seats in good condition are pluses, but not a must. Aftermarket rims are deal breakers, though.
