Alright the last one.... infiniti G35 coupe

What are your thoughts on this car? I decided that having a V8 with alot of horsepower is going to kill me, and although the cars are fast in a straight line, i will be screwed in the turns. So my current comparison is the 350Z and the G35... I am pushed away from the 350Z because its a 2 seater though...

The G35 has that sportyness as well as luxurious feel to it... kinda classy. The cars only got about 280 horsepower but thats more then enough... its a big increase from our 135 so ill be happy with the extra power... plus RWD.

What are your thoughts/ideas about the car? Im looking to spend 30K MAX! Out the door! And i want something sporty and luxurious...

I don't think you can get G35 for 30k. 30k is just a base price. I think you should consider something like 35-40k
I personaly like volvo C30...But I still take G35. It is very nice.

can you say insurance?

Maybe look at a top-of-the-line mazda 6?

i mean ya the g35 is a decent car but i think I would get sick of it after a while and wish I bought something else... or just start modding it... lol
