    dad's looking for a new ride.....he's tried out a bunch of coupes and he's inbetween these two.

    he liked the BMW (~230hp) when he drove it

    but then he drove the G35 (298hp) and *really* liked it. he said he liked the lighter steering and extra torque.

    whatchu think?

    G35c, much better value.

    i don't like when the old guys drive the younger people's cars though. tell him to get the G35x, AWD. :bigthumb:

    BMW will be a little bit nicer, handle a little better, and will hold its value better. The infiniti looks nice, and is faster. It's a tossup, I'd get the BMW though.

    oh yea, the G35's got a very nice interior, great look, like 60 more hp AND it's like
    $150/mo less.

    If he's cheap and wants a better value, go for the G35c.


    If he wants truly an "Ultimate Driving Machine", go for the 330Ci.


    Either way, he can't lose.

    330CI all the way, G35 is really nice but resale sucks and it's a bit overweight. There is nothing like driving a Beemer.

    Definition of cheap doesn't automatically mean buying it for nothing. :slap:


    cheap
    adj.
    1a. Relatively low in cost; inexpensive or comparatively inexpensive.
    1b. Charging low prices: a cheap restaurant.

    If he liked the 3, but he REALLY liked the G35, then get the G35. He really liked it. :dunno:

    I can't figure out why Americans glorify BMW's so much. It's the Ford of Germany.

    I don't. ;)

    It's because they cost more than average cars...that's about it.
