The Best G37 Mods: Boost Performance on Your Coupe or Sedan

Infiniti had a great run with the G35. It was the perfect car for those who wanted a more luxurious, grown-up version of the Nissan 350z. It quickly rose to popularity and became the weapon of choice for stance enthusiasts, racers and daily drivers alike.
