I am sorry I should have not say the company as a whole. But I am pretty sure that the IS350 will be a good contender against the 330I and the G35. Yes BMW was around a lot longer then any of the Japanese auto makers but it doesn't make them any better ! Is Mercedes - Benz better because they were the first auto manufactor ? I believe that BMW has more then sweaty palms. Figure Infiniti GT-R is going to take the M6 and then a high performance version of the M45 with the same TT-450Hp V8 will take the M5. The Infiniti Flagship is holding them back. Then all they need is a couple of convert's and you got yourself a full line up ready to go head to head with BMW. Give it to 2008.

"Figure Infiniti GT-R is going to take the M6 and then a high performance version of the M45 with the same TT-450Hp V8 will take the M5."
By the time the GTR comes around BMW will be out with a 600+hp monster. Of course you may be paying $6/gallon to fill up the GT-R or 600hp monster, but that's another story.
What a company has done in the past helps it's future. I'm sure you would like to see BMW lose, but it's probably not gonna happen.
As far as Mercedes as a car company, they still build the best cars to get in the drivers seat, with the widest variety. As I said previously on these boards, if MB is going downhill then why do I see so damn many new high-priced MBs in my neighborhood?

Did he say he needed RWD maybe he lives in snowy climates the Saab will plow thru the snow while the RWD IS350 and the 3'S RWD and the RWD Infin will be stuck in the garage. Look at the Acura TL too.. AWD G is great also.

I figured low 300's because of the new M only having 400 ponies

Yes but there 600+ monster of a car will be a lot more then $70,000 ! The price will more like be $170,000. Mercedes is not going down hill ! I never said that most of the people in my neighborhood drive Mercedes.

We should really categorize and prioritize problems. My Infiniti was undriveable at times - leaving me stranded often, which makes the problem with your 330 pale in comparison. I would have at times given anything to experience engine hesitation at 4k. I was put into a rental car that in order to maintain pace with traffic and not pose a hazard had to pretty much stay above 4k at all times. The law firm who handled my lemon law case repeatedly told me that Infiniti was the worst company to deal with. I was turned down by several attorneys who when they found out my car was branded Infiniti, wanted nothing to do with it. Call a lemon law attorney and drop the name Infiniti and watch them run. They are hell on wheels. Meanwhile I was in the court parking lot the day I received my handsome settlement (even the devil himself sometimes gets caught, and when he does boy do they make him pay) and guess who shows up in a M3- the corporate attorney for Infiniti. I guess actions do speak louder than words...

Thats funny because when my scheduled mantaince comes around along with the time the fold down seat broke I received a current Infiniti model and I know The the G35X or the FX45 they usually give me is not working its ass off to keep up with highway traffic usually it is the highway traffic trying to keep up with me ! One more thing wouldn't he be representing Nissan Corp. since Nissan is the parent company.

I got tired of talking about them before I bought 2 german cars.
It's funny because after I got my first I couldn't stop talking about them. If you want to still talk about cars in the class may I recommend another top performer that now deserves a little newfound conversation. The MB C350. I just got the E350 and the engine is great, i can only imagine it in an even lighter, more nible car.

Yes the new engine 268 hp V-6 right ? Sounds great when I looked at them the engine was awful small . That was a big turn down !
