I own a 01 is 300 and I am looking into getting the new Infinity G35 coupe. Anyone know much about this car other than it looks sweet?...

The other car option is the Nissan 350Z. What do you guys think? Which one would be the car of choice if you were to pick either of these?

Input would be greatly appreciated..

MOST DEF 350z!...I went in to check it out. And check this...It came with standard front & rear sturt bars! Inside---Offers a tight ass gauge that acts as timer for your quarter mile times/0-60mph times...trip destination timer, ect ect/ Set your own RPMs/ Check tire pressure. This was all in the one gauge! :p Then another with an oil and another with a water gauge.
:boring: ----F*ck the G35 :shame:


maybe do lil 350z action come spring :p

The G35 Copue has a little more room and still has the same engine and horsepower. I think it looks nicer than the 350Z too. I would get the G35 Coupe.

I knew about the G35C back when I bought my IS300 (last spring). Kinda wished I had waited for it. Simple bolt on mods won't get the IS up to the power that thing has. :(

Go for the G35 Coupe.

It looks sporty and sexy. It has only 15hp less than the 350Z...which you can make up for easily. Plus, you have room for you and three drooling friends in the G35...while you can only brag to one friend in the Z.

The coupe gives you the best of both worlds. But if pure sportiness is all you're looking for, the Z is the way to go.

It all comes down to what you want. Sport Luxury or Sport.

Another consideration is that you'll probably out grow the Z before you'd get sick of the Coupe...just my opinion.

chose G coupe over IS and Z

Before any flames- hear this- I still own a 97 TT supra with 70 K original miles that I will drive until I die. I know that engine in the IS is sweet because you have bascially the same engine as in the TT.

Further I test drove the IS extensively and found it superior to the 330 in so many visceral ways BUUUUUUT- then I test drove the pre production G- and I ordered it that day and forgot about the IS. The G feels more powerful at lower RPM and has a visceral feel to the steering that BMW only wishes it could have. The tossability of this car is unbelievable. I have 1200 K on my new G 6MT that I picked up last week. The IS interior is much nicer than the G however and the IS engine is smoother and more "refined".

I would have bought the Z but I needed a functional back seat. I think the Z more muscular and "sporty".

Again- the IS has taken alot of shit from alot of people. For me the IS is a stunning car in everyway. IMO- better looking than the G. But for whatever reason the G won me over. Hard to explain these things.
