Sharing a picture slide video of my one week old ride. This replaces my 9 year old G35 Sedan. It is different to me in many ways. It doesn't drive the same, but I enjoy it so much more than the G. The Q has the looks, tech, ergonomics, comfort, quickness, and overall balanced package I was looking for. Is there an M or S car out there for me, sure, but for a family sedan, the Q makes me very happy. Once my kiddos are older, I'll look for a pure drivers car for modding for the track. Maybe Infiniti will have a pure performance oriented car by then. For now, I am loving the Q, just ask my wife how obsessed I am with performing my evening detail/wipe down ritual. :D I have K&N filters and 25mm spacers on the way. Researching lowering options in the near future

Pictures added with the addition of Stillen splitter and rear deck wing.

More added as I continue to mod.

Yep. Been working on remodeling the inside of that house for the last 8 months. So much so that my wife didn't complain about getting the car. Saved a lot by doing all labor myself. Now if I could finish my last project this weekend, her office, I can focus on the garage and my man cave. The Q just needs an uncluttered spot to park and detail area, my man cave will be more of a bike cave as I'm heavily into cycling.

**** bro, may I ask what you do for a living? That is an absolutely beautiful home...

Although the Q is a very nice car...that house looks like its for someone who would drive a GT-R or maybe a Lambo.... I want a palace like that...I am envious sir....

Thanks Chilli. Both my wife and I have been very fortunate to have career jobs at great companies. We both work in upper management IT roles at our respective companies. While the house is the bomb to us, prices in FL are absolutely reasonable compared to some locations in the U.S. Honestly, the Adventador I'd buy (dreaming) would cost more than what we paid for this house. :)

That gives me hope...as I am 25 years old and working in the IT industry....but I only crack a little less than 50K a year in salary. I am gonna continue acquiring my credentials and certifications in the IT security sector...as one day I wanna be making my 100K/year to afford a palace and a proper Q60 if there is one :)

Pangea / Professor Klig is the song. It is built into a nifty App I used to create the video. It is called Replay and very easy to use. Just take your pictures and video, select your scenes and music and it does the rest for you.

Installed some LED replacement bulbs and K&N filters tonight. Thanks to FastGTR for the how to blog posts.

My 25mm spacers will be in this week. I plan to install them this weekend along with a long day of giving the paint some love.

Looking to use my Flex rotary and DA buffers and long list of pad and polish combinations to find the best results for getting swirls out of this scratch shield clear. I hear low heat and finish level polish works best, limiting heat being the key for the resins in the paint. I love to details my cars, not wash and hand wax, but multi-step professional detailing is a hobby of mine. I just don't know how this paint will take to my tools yet.

Get into security and forensics as quickly as possible. All other IT jobs are a dead end when it comes to salaries. I know this from experience. :)
