Discussion Starter #1
I've been on this forum shortly after purchasing a 17 RS in december. I have been part of the myg37 community for a few years when I had a G37. I really enjoyed a stickied thread titled..."What did you do your sedan today" that spurred a lot of random discussion from simple mods, maintenance, random pictures, and stories about our cars.

I will start off by mentioning I dropped off my car today for the ECM update that other users are reporting improved transmission response in regards to shifting.

What update in particular that improves transmission response? Mine is '16 and feels right so far but i might have missed that update when i read some bulletins last week, hence the question. The only recent update I knew was also for the transmission to report a MIL code for certain issues.

Anyways, I left my Q50 parked in the garage today due to rain :)

Just purchased RS-R springs to lower my 18 RS400. Took it to the shop and they finally were able to give me a quote for up to $900. Seems rather high so I'm shopping around. If anyone is int he Portland, OR greater metro area please let me know if you know of a shop that is less expensive..

(1) After I had my Infiniti dealer install the Fast Intentions cat back exhaust, there has been a clunking noise coming from under my 2017 Q50 RS when driving over potholes and such. Today they remedied the problem by removing an OEM cross brace over the exhaust pipes. That brace doesn't seem to serve any particularly useful purpose anyways.

(2) I've also asked them to do an oil/filter change, since the car break-in period is well done now at 2,500 km. (I also had an initial engine oil change completed at 800 km, which was kind of conservative, but that's just me.;) From now on I will be having an oil/filter change every 5,000-6,000km, which obviously goes well beyond the Infiniti's recommendation.)

Can finally get in on this thread!

First mods since I got it a couple of weeks back.

Tint (Carbon/Ceramic) - 15% back, 35% front
Interior LED Lighting (why a luxury performance car doesn't come with all around LED interior lighting is beyond me)
Gators license plate frame (best mod yet)

I have a 2017 Infiniti Q50 3.5L and I changed everything that is on this page:

www.searchforparts.com/oil-change/infiniti-2017-q50-3.5l-vq35hr

I was looking for the oil capacity for my infiniti and that page came up with every fluid for my make and model so I just bought everything since it needed a full flush since the dealer wanted big time bucks!!! Will probably do myself or take to a shop which will still be cheaper. Going to flush other vehicles too in the household.
