After over one year ownership with 2017 GSF I finally love my GSF much more now.
I think I didn't like it one year ago because of two reasons. One is GSF has softer suspension than my modified G. The other is GSF is a little bit bigger. So in the beginning I didn't actually like my GSF that much and felt disappointed considering the price of GSF is 10 times of my old G!!!
Now I think I get used to GSF softer suspension. Guess what? Since I get used to GSF softer suspension now, I also like my wife's 2010 M35X more now. Of course GSF is still much better than M35X. Just Now I can accept M35X softer suspension now and also enjoy driving M. I think I really has been spoiled by Bilstein and KW performance suspension. I have tested many performance cars including M3, Cayman and GT-R. I think only GT-R suspension could be firmer than my old G...

I have to say that Infiniti cars are getting better and better. Infinti is NOT ordinary Nissan any more. It's a high end Nissan. High end Nissan is better than lower end Nissan. But I still think both Infiniti and Nissan have similar reliability if both are made in Japan...
PS: Japanese are slow but they will still get to that point someday. So to work with them or use their products you need to have some patient I think. If you have patient, they will reward you for your patient in the future...
My GSF is still very good. Its handling maybe cannot match M3/M5's but it's still better than a lot German cars such as 335, 550M, E43/53 AMG, S6, etc.
Recently I've also driven my old G a little faster and more confidently because I know my slightly modified G is still very good on street. (On track it needs bigger tires, better response at higher rpm, better brake and cooling, etc.)
我的GSF仍然非常好。它的處理可能無法與M3 / M5相媲美，但它仍然比許多德國汽車更好，如335,550M，E43 / 53 AMG，S6等。
Right now I don't always need to drive for long distant trips since she's also willing to drive. (American is really BIG!!!)
There is one thing I really like in my GSF. That's steering. Basically my old G steering is still good(accurate and good feel) However when putting very small amount change on steering I think my new GSF still have good amount of feel but my old G doesn't have that weighted steering feel if steering change is very small. I also think GSF steering is better than that in Q60 I tried three months ago. (Of course GSF is much more expensive...)
I think your car should be sedan. 2 dr Coupe suspension is not soft. This is easy to fix. You can put Coupe springs and sway bars on your sedan. Install KONI performance shocks(yellow) and increase your tire to at least 245. Then I believe you will be very happy. Comfortable and fast!!! (I tried similar settings before for 3 years)
By the way I would like to share one more my experience. I had tested MDX about 6 years ago. Believe it or not. I had difficulty in finding the neutral steering point for that MDX when I just finished a "270 degree" highway ramp!?! That's a little bit scary because after I finished that ramp aggressively I suddenly couldn't know how to make that big Honda go straightly!?! I think that Honda didn't provide much steering feel compare to my old G...
