So, they test a base model and get base results, knowing full well the sport model is completely different. Twats.
I agree with your comment. However, if he is comparing it to a G37 non-sport, then his comments are relevant and not something anyone wants to hear.

I would like to see / hear an equivalent test track review between sport models.

Even a non sport with 19" summer tires would be more fair. Then again, they may sell the most cars in this configuration so maybe it's fair on average.

Note to self: OEM tires almost always suck. You want performance, you get performance tires.

Agreed. The stock Pirellis on the 350Z were an absolute disaster. The all seasons on my G37 sedan did their work, but then we have had two mild winters in a row, so it's unknown.

For $800 bucks I'm changing mine to most likely BFG G-Force Sport Comp 2. Just the shorter stopping distance alone (by many many feet) makes me feel better. Hey, I get a flat I call roadside assistance.

BTW, don't NOT purchase a car because of crappy tires, they are easily changed, just budget in. Also, I'm keeping the run flats for when I turn the car back in.

Wow. How come Infiniti has once again given the non-Sport model to these testers like this?

This could potentially screw up a lot of their potential sales from those buyers who do a lot of Youtube research to make their shopping decisions..

I honestly do not recall any negative reviews regarding the G35/37's handling and acceleration, both Sport and Non-Sport. The G35s came stock with horrific tires. Did Infiniti really soften things up on the base Q? That body roll in the video was really bad.
