Hello infiniti buds. I am a 40 years old man who love cars and i just got a black 2008 awd ex35 journey with the tech package to be our family car. I drive a saab aero 2.8 v6 turbo sportcombi as my daily driver wich i also love it. After a rough few months right after buying it, now im finaly enjoying the ex35, specially now that winter is here full force in canada with lots of snow on the ground. The awd on the ex35 is amazing. Right at the first month of ownership the battery died, radiator broke, Replaced the air filters with k&n air filters, they came over oiled from the factory and i didnt notice till the car started stalling like crazy at all stop signs and traffic lights. After trying soo many things trying to fix it, one day i decided to check my air boxes and they were flooded with the pink oil from k&n filters. I cleaned the mess...cleaned both body throttles put back the original filters, reseted the icu and did the relearn procedures and the ex35 drives almost perfect again. Stalls once a month i would say. Im afraid to put my k&n filters back and cause more harm, but i miss how good they sound. The car is black with stone color leather interior. Almost white/grey. Love this color combo. No fake wood trim inside. All brushed aluminum style around the doors. Tinted windows all around and i plastidip all the chrome, now it looks gunmetal/antracite grey. Rims, emblems, grill, trunk, bars under the doors and window frame no more chrome. It looks very stealth. When the winter is over im planing to get the h&r lowering springs installed just for that 1" drop. Love the interior of this car, very confortable, quiet, the deep exaust notes when i give ot some gas and the look of it. Already went on a road trip from toronto to the east coast and it was a great drive. 750km with a tank at an average of 130km/h. The music box and all the voice comands really help on road trips. Only down side is space. Glove box is soooooo small. Trunk also is very small...and the back seat is tight. Still an amazing car. Very happy with it. Thats how my infiniti ex35 experience starts.
