It's almost done  
Cartelligent found my car: G37 coupe, slate blue exterior, graphite/aluminum interior—loaded. Premium, Sport, Nav, and Technology packages. Spoiler. Illuminated kick plates.

It's sex on 4 wheels.

I'm scurred though.

I finally decided to go coupe because, as one of my friends put it, you'd might as well mix it up... you're getting the same model car, so get a different exterior and body style.

I'm hella worried about the sport suspension with those 19" wheels. It's probably safe to say I'll have to replace them at least once during my lease time. Aside from that though, how rough is the ride going to be tooling down the right lane on Pico Blvd?

I hope I'm making the right decision. I will have to live with it for 39 months.

Price is incredible though... basically paying slightly more than I am now for a more expensive car.

nervous nervous nervous.

Don't worry... this'll probably be my last post about the car until I get it.

There is probably no point, but think long and hard about it.
Do you need a car of this calibur?
Is it practical?
Is it really needed?

Well, there you go!
:)
As long as you know.
Like you said, it's just a lease anyway!

I'm not really upgrading except from sedan to coupe (and basically for a few bucks more). Same caliber/class car for a really, really, really good price. Besides... just leasing it.

Plus the engine purrs like a happy kitty.

I have a 2001 Cavalier coupe that was lowered and they put 18" wheels on it, I've had it just a few months and I've already had to have one of the wheels welded because it cracked. If I could go back, I would probably not get it, even though I like how it looks for the most part.

I was reading some posts on g35driver. They said the sport suspension riding on the 19s wasn't bad. They said it has a fairly progressive suspension that stiffens up when weight's put on it in the turns. So sounds as if I might be okay :)

It will be somewhat harsh, but I have little doubt you'll be very happy with it.

I forgot my roommate's 328 has 19s. He said it's noticeable sometimes, but not terrible. Been reading the g37 forums, and a lot of ppl are saying it's not too bad that the suspension stiffens up in turns.

Journey Sport? Hmm... I thought it was one or the other.

There is also a G37S Journey (basically an automatic version of the G37S MT).

yeah, if you add the sports package to the journey, they add the "S" badging, the bigger brakes, wheels, penis.
