I think the G35 sounds good but .:R32>G35>E46. personally, I don't think the M3 even sounds good until the rasp pipe is addressed. My 330 has a nice base tone, but my VR6+ $300 2.5" custom straight pipe and magnaflow muffler>everything!

Infinity is the one manufacturer that has every car that comes out of the factory, but sound like nothing else on the road. Infinitis have an extremely distinguishable sound and your never going to replicate that. IMO Infiniti sounds artificial and Im not a fan of the sound.

Having lived with an FX35 (same sound) for 8 years, it gets old VERY fast. It sounds amazing for the first 2 years you live with it, but after that you want the noise to go away or sound more realistic. Inside the car it's not bad because they noise deaden the trunk well, but outside it just gets obnoxious.

the nissan/infiniti VQ line is something that you can't really replicate in an I-6... that's all there is to it....

Nothing is ever going to sound like a Harley and nothing is going to sound like a G35 it all in engine design
