Most common color, and by far the sexiest. Diamond Graphite. It pwns all other colors.

That poor J30. I love those cars, but this is like watching your mom get a colonoscopy. not pretty to watch at all.
Dude, that isn't rice. Aside of the retarded playstation, it is done rather riceless. Search "rice" / archived content/ thread titles in the general chat forum. Then you will see some rice.

OB,IP and BS was on my list. Now I am moving to the IP I think from here. I think the sedan looks best if it is black. Coupe not sure. If I buy a coupe it might be IP.

I think any of the silver blends in too much. Car like a G should stand out. Black sedan looks more luxurious. THe white red blue coupe stands out of the other cars.

Yeah when I was searching for mine, Black was my first choice, Ivory Pearl was my 2nd and Diamond Graphite was my 3rd... After seeing some IP's, I think I like them as much as Black.

heliochrome doesn't want to admit he likes that IP with the black/chrome wheels

I've always lusted for a black coupe....Have said it a bazillion times.However, the more I saw the Twilight Blue, the more I started liking it more than the black......It's extremely dark, but has a bit more dimension.Seems to be rarer too. With that said, everybody is going to like the color in their driveway more than any other. In addition, I wanted an all black interior which this one has! Oh, and wanted 17 inch rims too!! Better on my a$$ and have been told better on the track (If I ever get it there!!!).

It's what came on the car. I don't care too much about the color of them. Eventually they will be replaced.

I wish I felt that way

I'm going to have to do something unique to the paint in order for me to keep the OB. Maybe some IP accents. I really really really wanted IP so that CF would match perfectly.

Shall I add anymore accronyms? lol.

I went to Saddle Ranch yesterday at Universal Studios and everyone was drooling over the color

There was about 5 silver G's and two black G's....everyone was like woah, I've never seen this color before!

Yeah those wouldn't be my first choice for black on chrome wheels, but it was the first pic i found of an IP G with black on chrome and if I had IP I would be putting on some black on chromes... But I am very happy with the OB... Not sure where to go with wheels on mine, but first its gotta get lowered.

I totally agree with you, I like black g35 sedans... cause of the chrome stands out really good on the black...

And the white coupes, are just ... I think black is my fav though, for any G... as long as it's black on black, tinted... looks badazz.

I definitely like that blue in the coupe. I see a heck of a lot of G's, and they're usually grayish colored.

I think Black/Black in the sedans look best, especially with a spoiler and aero package! And of course, like everyone else has said, it shows everything when it's dirty.

I never noticed that only the sedans had the chrome... That is why the black looks so much better on my sedan than on the coupe!

The Grey interior looks good too!

I like the grey because you still get the black dash and top parts of the door panels. The two tone interior looks really classy!!! I really couldn't be happier with my sedan. The only better thing would be a NAV but i can find my way around anyway lol!

thahman: you have the most loaded 03 sedan here lol, looks very nice with the areo bumper! (wish i still had mine! )

Brand i think you have the Sickest 04 around. I love the wheels! If i wouldn't have gotten such a good deal on my 19's (400 bux with tires)I would have picked 20's that looked just like that!

And I think i have one of the nicest 05-06 models. I don't think we have very many 05-06 sedans that look as good as mine!

Im not trying to sound stuck up or anything cuz that isn't how i am but after i washed her today... I almost made love to Her!

Re: Why Athens Blue is/was the greatest G35/G37 color.

Postby jezdfax » Fri Jun 01, 2018 6:43 am

Yes I totally agree with you about the color. I searched high and low for the coupe for a solid year. I was willing to drive anywhere in Ca but I wanted it all. I wanted the color, 19" wheels,Nav,auto etc,etc. Everytime I found one with the color, it lacked one of the extras I was looking for. I was on Craigslist and discovered there is two different ways to search for the cars. The obvious way is the search box to the left listing each car.The other way is to just use the search box on the top of the page. When I used the top search box, my dream car appeared and was being sold in my home town. It did not appear in the search box to the left. Needless to say, I drove to the lot and there it was. It was a 2008 with everything including chrome wheels (my favorite) and rear spoiler. It had close to 100,000 miles so it was not abused.

For piece of mind, I had the Infiniti dealership do the full inspection package ($150.00). When the car arrived for the inspection, the service manager instantly recognized the car. He told me the car was local and always serviced there, The previous owner was 91 years old and recently traded in this car for a new Infiniti turbo Coupe. They did not keep 10 year old cars on their lot so it was sold to auction when the other lot bought it. After the inspection, I was told the auto window motor needed to be replaced in the future with front brake pads. I bought the car. I f I could figure out how to post a picture, Ill send it.
