Default Painted Front Facias on Sport Model

Just got the front facias painted gloss black, cant see too well in photos but they look amazing. Infiniti should really start doing this with the Sport models, Not sure why they all have the gray color front facias. These photos are without the front lip on yet, gotta let the paint really dry first before I put it back on, will add more photos once its done.

I happen to love that stock gunmetal color. But this looks good too.

It’s not a bad color, its just random, i mean if there was anything else with the same color it would look good. Now i just have to get the chrome door handles, and the back chrome piece deleted......I’m going to get a black “S” on the back, seeing as the “black S” will never truly be produced......

Hah well you never know, the fact Infiniti has confirmed they will approve/deny production of the car by end of year is a good thing.
Besides even if they drop the KERS system due to cost a Plug-in Hybrid version similar to what was used with the VQ35HR is totally possible.

It alone would be good for another 50-70HP and 100FT-lbs of torque, which would be more than enough for the Q50/60 to
take on the M, AMG and RS competitors.

I agree with you. It should be more of a theme. Upper front diamond grill - gloss gunmetal. Lower diamond grill - flat black. Diamond "grill" at the foglights - gloss black. Lame.


My car is actually in the shop now having much of my chrome painted the same front upper grill gunmetal (side window trim, rear trunk trim, etc.). I wanted to "delete" (cover?) my chrome but I wanted to do something different than the usual black or body color. I hope I don't regret it!

Yeah, I've decided that I do as well. The black looks okay, but you lose the ability to see the detail of the design of the grill pattern.

It happens to me too. I take pics that look fine on my phone and even in Windows Explorer. Then I drag and drop and 'boom', upside down or 90 degrees. This forum should have a way to rotate pics after they are dragged and dropped.
