#1 of 72 2006 Subaru STI vs. 2006 Infiniti G35 coupe
Nov 22, 2005 (2:53 am)
I'm planning on getting either a 2006 Subaru STI or a 2006 Infiniti G35 coupe. I know those two are kind of in different class where the STI more a teenage performance car, and the G35 is luxury sport car. I like performance car but it's not like I'm going to race it everyday or anything. But then again I don't want a slow car. The G35 would probably a 6MT with Sport-tuned Suspension Package (the MT comes with it), Premium Package, and Aero Package. Just wondering if the G35 have enough power and if anyone got tired of the STI's hard suspension. Thanks.

Both are excellent vehicles and will give you all the performance you'll want. The STI is slightly less expensive, about $2,000 or so, if that makes a difference. The G35 is more luxurious in design and has a nicer-looking interior. It probably will hold its value better than the STI and therefore may be less expensive to lease.
One thing you should do in advance is check with your insurance agent. Neither vehicle will be cheap to insure, but I suspect that the STI will be more than the G35.
Finally, you'll probably find the dealership experience better with the STI, even though you'll have to pay close to sticker as with the G35. The G35 is one of the least expensive Infinitis, while the STI is the most expensive Subbaru, with the possible exception of a top-of-the-line B9 Tribeca. For that reason alone, you'll most likely be treated better at the Subaru dealership, minus the somewhat condescending atmosphere found at many dealerships that sell luxury brands.

I'm not worried about the insurance; I work in a dealer and the dealer cover the insurance for two of my cars. I'm just worried if I will get tired of the STI after 6 months or so because of it's hard suspension, or dissapointed by the G35 Coupe because of it's lack of power. I owned a RX-8 which suppose to have very similar, if not better, 0-60 time and sometimes it felt like it just not powerful enough. But then again I don't race my car at all. I'm getting it within a month, so any suggestion/info will help.

You aren't likely to find a "lack of power" in the G35. As for the STI's suspension, all I can say is see how it feels to you after a test drive, and decide if you can live with it.

Thanks for all your help, I have decided to go for the 2006 Infiniti G35 coupe. Test drove both car, Subaru STI is way too loud and stiff for me. The G35 is fast enough and much more luxurious. Going to get it next week, Diamond Graphite/Black interior, looking forward to it.

Good choice. Performance-wise, the STi is the better value. Overall, its really your preferences since each car is better at either performance or luxury. Neither are the best in both classes. However, I would definitely have liked to see another STi on the streets tho' cuz I know it would be Fun to jus Run It a couple times

#10 of 72 Whats the best way to launch an STI ?

I just bought a 2006 STI and this is my first turbo vehicle. I've had plenty of suggestions from people who don't own a turbo car on how to get the best hole shot....Could anyone out there clue me in on this technique. I don't mind hammering on the car from time to time just want to do it right to get the best jump. Thanks
