On my last car, a 93 integra, there was literally no rust...

to be fair, you're comparing a G37 against an IS250

yeah, maybe you should reconsider getting an S4 if you'll have a 350 sitting idle... that seems more wasteful to me

that doesn't sound normal

Is there an aftermarket alarm or are you just touching the sensors in the front door handles to unlock the car?
