This car is the secks

The sunroof on my car has gone retarded. It will randomly open on its own (generally at freeway speeds), and sometimes prefers not to open or close all the way. It's been getting worse, so I brought it to the dealer this morning where I think they've ordered it a new brain.

While I waited for them to tell me what was wrong, I started looking again at the G35 coupe, since I've been considering that as a replacement when my lease is up. I was disappointed as the coupe is missing a few things (like memory seats). As I was sitting in it, I also wasn't sure if a coupe like that was really "me." It just didn't feel right. I'd never really considered the sedan because (a) it has had a weaker engine than the coupe; (b) it is was generally less-feature rich than the sedan; (c) is was too boxy.

Until 2005.

The new front of the G35 sedan looks almost identical to its sister coupe

I hadn't been paying attention, but Infiniti has raised the bar on the sedan. They've given it more aggressive styling (the front is nearly identical to the coupe now). They've added a sport-tuned suspension and upped the gadgets so that it now surpasses the coupe in some regards. They've even given it the same engine now, so there are no horsepower differences between the two.

Infiniti G35's new Intelligent KeyIn fact, they've given it Infiniti's new Intelligent Key. I held my poker face as he told me, but truly, I nearly creamed my pants. This effectively makes the key obsolete.

The way it works is, as long as long as the fob is in your pocket, and you're within 2 meters of the car, you can open the doors, trunk, and even start the ignition! You never have to remove the fob (or its hidden key) from your pocket! (Although there isn't much room, because I so have a boner thinking about this).

The bad part is, I pretty much think I want this car (unless someone has some other suggestion). Infiniti has a deal right now where you can supposedly get out of your old lease a few months early. I may try to take them up on it.

Honestly, luxury can kiss my ass. When it comes down to it, I'm just such a technology whore.

Where's the dotted line so I can sign my life away?!
