    Pentosin Dot 4LV in a G37x?

    The left rear caliper has stuck on a few occasions after bad weather trips and both rears have pretty significant corrosion (base sliding cast iron calipers) so I ordered a pair of Raybestos R-line replacements, new Akebono ASP pads and 2L of the Pentosin Dot4 LV fluid based on the thinking the...

    2012-2014 Lexus GS350 AWD Reliability?

    Hey all I was hoping for some info on these cars, may not be needing an SUV but I still need more room then my 12 G37x sedan. The Infiniti is great fun but I'd also like something a little more comfortable for me and the dog. I really am not up to date on the RWD chassis Toyta/Lexus sedans...

    Info on Mobil1 M108A Filter

    Per Mobil1 tech support email the M108A uses a silicone ADBV and the bypass pressure setting is 15psi. I know Subi's like a higher pressure then that but is there any reason that would be inadequate for the G37/370z?

    Which oil for a G37 with a 5k mile or 1 year OCI

    My 12 G37x is due for an oil change soon and I'm trying to decide between Mobil1 5w-30 Vanilla (what it's had for the past 50k miles I've owned it, 83k total on the car) and Mobil 1 5w-30 EP or the 0w-40FS, or maybe even Redline's 5w-30. No engine mods and the car sees a mix of shorter rural...
