I am in the ordering process of a 04 6mt Aero, Prem, Diamond Graphite on Graphite INT, Side Molding, Trunk Mat and Mud Guards were added by dealer by mistake.

What do you guys think of them? Do they help the look of the car? I think the Side Molding are KEY, not so sure abotu the Mud Guards. They will protect the paint on side panel a little, and perhaps breakup the rather large side panels even more.

Thoughts?

Okay Make my own damn mind up for me!

I find both the molding and the mud guards ugly, personally, but it's your car. Do YOU like the look of them?

I have the side molding and really like them; haven't gotten the mud guards yet but plan on it.

I think the mud guards are okay looking. They don't detract from the look of the car too much. Side moldings I'm not wild about, even though I have them. I prefer the cleaner look of the car without them.

The Mud Guard package is not only helpful in keeping debris from chipping the G35's delicate Paint, but also it adds a nicer, smooth appearance on the sides of your new beauty..

See below



I say to go for it.. [thmsup]

Those do look pretty nice. Did you order them later or did you have the dealership put them on for you? If I order them from Grubbs I would probably put them on myself, rather than having my dealership charge me $100 for the installation.

Actually Those came listed as an accessory straight from the factory. At first, when I heard they were on the car already, I was a little bothered about how it would look, but when I saw it for the first time, I totally fell in love. It really adds a lot to the car's flow.

I think they help a lot. I did find however 1 chip above my rear left's wheel well, which is a mystery to me. Debris on the road is my worst nightmare. You should see me when I drive, staying far from trucks and other debris throwing vehicles...

Personally... I don't like the side molding at all, even though it probably will protect your car from those idiots who throw their doors open next to your car... HOWEVER, I think the Mud Guards look GREAT... I'm planning on ordering some for myself soon... here is some info in case you wanted to do the same:

$85 per set ($170 for both) from the local Infiniti Dealership. They come painted and ready to install (you can install them yourself and NOT pay that $100 for the dealership installation)

$68 per set ($136 for both) at infinitiwholesaleparts.com/en_US/f_MiscPage_2.chtml

-no sig this time

Has anyone installed the splash guards themselves? I assume it's pretty easy, but you know what they say about "assume."

I would assume the same thing. When I get them (sometime before winter hits) I plan on putting them on myself. Hope that doesn't make an ass of me.
