Took some pictures of my 2014 QX60 before walking around Wynwood. I'm not a car photographer and the car was not detailed for the photos, but I love how these came out.

Shark Fin antenna is aftermarket, which I took off my prior QX60 when I traded that one in. I had the antenna, roof rails, roof bars and grill painted at the dealer. The rims were painted at a wheel finisher. The calipers and rotors I painted myself. Tints all around are at about 15%. Sunroof and panoramic roof are tinted at 5%. All lights are white LEDs except headlights (8000K) and fogs (PIAA yellows). Not seen is the door projectors that display the Infiniti logo when you open the doors. Running boards are aftermarket, I had the dealer swap them from my trade in to this one on the date of purchase.

I'm really enjoying this car, much more now that I have a fully loaded version. It does make a huge difference over a standard package model.

(P.S. I paid off the gray QX60 I posted about before and used that as a trade in towards this one, so that's why I have posted pics of two 2014 QX60s).

Not that's a clean look. I'm digging the black wheels and tinted windows too. That combo goes well together. Great looking car, NemoEsq.

Thanks. I've always been a fan of the white/black combination on the Range Rovers and thought something similar would work well here. I'm happy with it.

Looks great. Is it difficult to paint the plastic front chrome grill? Must be a special paint that won’t chip off easily.

I'm not entirely sure. I can tell you that removing the grill is a pain that requires removal of the entire front bumper, so both times I've done the grill it's been on while on the bumper, just papering the rest of the car to avoid overspray. My first QX60 I plasti-dipped the grill. No chips for the few months I had it after that. This one I had it painted at the dealership along with the roof rails, cross bars and shark fin antenna. So far no chips but it's only been over a month since I got my car back. Time will tell. I still very much enjoy the look, even if it ends up chipping in the future.

Posting this here since it was requested via a message on my profile and it's too long to post there.

I'm going to list everything I can think of below. Let me know if you have questions about a particular thing.

Here are the running boards. These look very much like OEM but are not as round on the edges and give you more room for your feet, which I find to look better and be more practical than the OEM bars. First QX60 I had these installed at PepBoys. When I traded that in for the current QX60 I had the dealer change them from the old car to this one. They had no objections and installed it like it was an OEM piece. I wonder if they even realized it wasn't.

The first QX60 I bought did not come with crossbars, so I ordered them online from eBay. Link below. They looked and felt pretty OEM to me. The current QX60 came with stock crossbars and other than a sticker on each crossbar about not exceeding weight limits, it feels and looks the same. Of course, mine are now painted black along with the roof rails, grill and shark fin antenna by the dealership's bodyshop.

8000K headlight bulbs. I've used Kensun for 6+ cars now. My current three cars all have Kensun 8000K bulbs, this one only the D2S bulb but the other two also use Kensun ballasts. No problems.

Yellow PIAA fogs. I have PIAAs here, I have LEDs on the other two cars. Color consistency is about the same. The PIAAs are stronger/brighter. I know the "european" look with the blue lights/yellow fogs is not everyone's thing. But if you like it, I can recommend the PIAAs for our cars.

A must have in my opinion - shark fin antenna. I've had two QX60s due to my silly nature, and I've bought for both. It's a bit bigger than a stock shark fin, but IMO still looks better than the silly remote control style antenna.

All of my interior lights and the running light are LEDs. Most of them purchased from SuperBrightLEDs.com. There are posts on here about which sizes you need.

I also ordered replacement mats since the cars I purchased were used and the mats were worn:

Got these lug nuts to match my wheels (stock 20" but painted by a local guy who does this for a good price - paid $500) and matching valve covers I found at the auto part store near my house

I have two of these dashcams, one in front and one in back:

For the discerning Infiniti fan, Infiniti branded door projectors. Work great for a couple of months then the "chip" gets warped and you need to order new ones. Haven't found a better solution yet.

And of course, even the key is an accessory. I have one of each, one to each key:

I also installed a navigation/speed bypass unit from CarKit Company. Brian is a very helpful guy and he'll do right by you. To cover my ass: I do not recommend using this kind of thing in an unsafe manner. I use it to play in the front screen whatever I'm playing for my toddler in the back. That way I know what he's watching. But it can definitely be a distraction and is therefore dangerous.

I also had front windows tinted dark (~15%) and the rest of the car tinted additionally to the factory tint so it would match the front window tint. I had the sunroof and panoramic roof tinted 5%. To go along with the other black accents I also painted the calipers and brake pads black.

That's about all I can remember now.
