Standard is 18 or 19 in mixed city driving. I get 25+ on long highway trips. Did you look at the window sticker before you bought it? Should have listed EPA estimates.

Gs-f with the v8 is coming and will address the lack of power. The RC-F should give you a good idea of how it will perform.

When I read 36k and wandering and diving into road imperfections, my first thought was worn out tires. Glad you got it resolved. Welcome to expensive high performance, short tire life land.

No, he's converting. The F Sport factory rims are 19's, which is why he's quoting tires for the 19's, which aren't very universal and hardly anyone makes that size.

No, you're right. If overall diameter stays the same (which it always should), nothing is impacted when it comes to mileage. Trust me, if you oversized the wheels and tires, you'd know it, starting...

You could be right. I was basing my experience off of my 2004 G35 sedan, which was specced at 261 bhp (195 kW), 258 lbft (350 Nm). That' s very square. The latest G37's measure 328 hp (245 kW) 269...

Yeah it's full of compromise. The RC-F is the one to buy but even then the power doesn't solve the cramped interior. They should have chased the Cayman, totally agreed.

The door switch trim and glovebox are also horribly cheap on the RC. The RC-F gets real carbon fiber and it looks gorgeous but it's in a much higher price bracket.

I'm so happy with the GS and...

I think that's why some dealers are saying wait for incentives. A brand new model will be expensive for first adopters. Next year or two after it has been debugged and discounted is the time to shop.

Go for the ceramic tints. They last and cut out heat. At least the Huper Optik I got cuts alot of heat. There are some other brands that can do the same, shop around. But you don't want dyed tint (no...

Went to the RC launch event at my dealer. The RC 350 and F Sport both have some bs plastics in their interior and a cheap glove box door. It's not in the GS class at all. Looks cool though but as...

Michelin Pilot Super Sports are the way to go. I'll probably get a set when I need tires, the factory Bridgestones that are on it now kinda suck.

Yeah, where I pivot my butt when getting in is crinkled too. Just that one corner. I know the perforated surfaces are definitely leather.
