Hi all, I've been reading a bunch in here so thanks for all the info. The lease on my G was just about finished and I finally went with a Graphite Shadow Q50S AWD!

So far I'm really happy from the wheels and lights to all the features inside.

First super easy mod completed: swapped license plate bulb to LED (since Infiniti decided to leave that be for some reason) :cool:

Future mods? Maybe black out the chrome? We'll see...

Here's a pic from when I picked her up... I also attached one just in case.

Welcome to the Graphite Shadow Q50 family! I am also planning on blacking out the chrome in the near future. Where did you get your LEDs from? Would love to keep in touch along the way!

Thank you! I got the LEDs from Autolumination. I used them for my G for over 3yrs with no issue and they still run. The 194 bulb is compatible - here is the direct link 194 Bulbs 168 W5W 2825 Map Led Parking Signal Side Marker

I know the site seems a little sketchy but it's legit.

Let's keep in touch - blacking out the chrome might be the way to go :cool:

With a body color like that, blacking out the chrome will greatly complement the look. I know I would do it. even leaving it chrome will still look good.

some people tint chrome for a black chrome look which looks amazing IMO.

Looks awesome! I totally agree with you - not a big fan of chrome in general. So, tell me... how big of a pain is it to plasti dip?

Agreed - just need to figure out if plasti dip is the only way to go or other options (and not be lazy about it ;))
