2000 Q45 Anniv. Edition
Titanium/Beige

New owner of the Q, replacing a 2000 I30t. The power and quality of this machine makes my I30 seem like they have no relation. It kind of puts my living room to shame. But whatever, I'm excited about joining this group and participating with all the ins and outs.

Found a OEM spoiler on a '03 Q at Pick-A-Part this weekend. Had to drill some holes in my trunk to install it. Here's a pic...

I'm thinking about wrapping it in chrome vinyl for now, until I get my car plasti-dipped.

All the best,

Hey All,
I am happy to report in as a new member to this forum and am pleased to announce that I am the proud owner of an (almost new) 1998 Q45t!

I just picked up my one previous owner, mint condition, 30Kmile, Q45t on 11/29/11. My father had a 1994 Q45 which would still be in the family if it wasn't in a write-off fender bender about 3 years ago. Needless to say there has always been a soft spot in our family for the Q - quality.

Here is my story and a quick background on this exceptional find!

For the last 10 years - I was the proud owner of a Mitsubishi 3000gt base 5-speed manual. The car had serious character and was a lot of fun - but at 117K miles (keep in mind the 120K mile tune-up on the way) it was becoming expensive to maintain. The kicker was the fact that I recently took a new sales position which will require me to continuously cart clients around - something which was impossible in the 3000gt.

When searching for cars I stuck to a budget of 12K my hot buttons were 1) RWD 2) V8 3) Leather, Sunroof, Premium Sound 4) Character / Individuality / Rarity.

I initially went to the dealership to look at a 2001 Infiniti i30. That car was very nice and a great value @ 34K mikes - but I couldn't take my eye off the Q45t parked in the middle of the showroom among the new 2011 models. I knew it was there - but with a window sticker price above my budget I tried to look the other way. Fortunately I couldn't! The Q looked amazing, drove amazing and at 30,000 K miles was a significant find!

After two days of test driving, inspecting the undercarriage on the lift, researching everything I could find on this beast on the internet (including this helpful forum as well as kbb.com) I made a deal and traded in one 1998 for another - albeit a much better 1998 IMHO :) I am amazed at how quick my Q is off the line, how powerful and smooth this car is - 80 MPH seems like I'm going 50 MPH. The turning radius is impressive (it basically turns on itself / dime) - this auto is very comfortable overall - yet still has a serious performance edge (car does not 'float' at all - perhaps because of the t suspension?). I drove it about 80 miles today with a big smile on my face...watch out Chicago - POC's 98 Q45t is on the loose!

Special thanks to my Dad for helping me with the hunt and every step of the way!

Details of my Q:

1998 Q45t @ 30 K miles (lowest mileage second generation Y33 for sale in the U.S. at time of writing 12/1/2011)
Grey leather interior
Color Code: #KR5 = Pewter Pearl Metallic Clearcoat (Greenish Gray)
1 owner, garage kept, but still 14 years old and lived in a downtown Chicago garage but there are some very small very minimal dings and dents (overall the car is MINT)

You did well to ignore the i30 and get the Q45. The i30 was nothing but a rebadged (for N. America) Nissan Maxima, not even a luxurious interior--just a workhorse Accord competitor.
