You're joking with that video, right? You denounce the need for acceleration then find a clip of some retard who can't drive barely beating a tsx in a drag race?
Speaking of ignorance. The term is intellectual disabilty. I'm a physician that works with them. "Retard" is actually offensive. One day if you have children, you'll understand.
Onto cars again.
That video was sent to me by someone. I passed it on because I thought it was perfect for our conversation. I was correct. I've also been on the highway with a 2003-2004 g35 from about 120km - 180km. I knew the driver and the g35 pulled away rather slowly. Not bad for a 4.
Sluggish acceleration like that is just unbelievable to me in a sports sedan. Oh, and if you think the tsx has more features, you might want to go drive a new G. It offers almost everything the RL does, and some things it doesn't (Mainly audio).
You're right. I saw the new g37 coupe and the new sedan looks better. I'm not sure if this thread is about the 2008 G35 coupe vs the TSX. I don't care for the RL, so i'm with you there. I've driven the new sedan, as a retal car. It's fast. Just zero appeal to me.

That statement is unbelievable.

You really just don't get it. Read up on the new G, then tell me about your features. And you must be my financial advisor to know that I only long for an M3, or 911, yet can't afford them..so I settle for a G. If you link to my picture in one of the previous posts, that is combined value of a 911C4S (With good negotiating) I drive what I want...not what I can scrape up the payments for.
Oh yeh, here is edmunds (Same site as G stats on the TSX)
I would be embarrassed to even bring up acceleration, or braking for that matter. A tsx will do 0-60 in 6.7 down a hill with a tailwind and slicks....maybe.
0 - 30 (sec): 2.8
0 - 45 (sec): 5.3
0 - 60 (sec): 8.3
0 - 75 (sec): 12.2
1/4 Mile (sec mph): 16.30 86.33
30 - 0 (ft): 33.13
60 - 0 (ft): 127.87
P.S. The only time a G is 10K more than a tsx is with every single option available..rendering your superior features claim even more silly.

Ironic that someone who attacks a preference as a character shortcoming worries about someone else offending someone with a non P-C term. RL is flagship..it was mentioned for your incorrect features claim. I'm glad your friend humored you with your car. My S2K would be hard pressed to lose My G on anything but the tightest roads. G would actually win on the highway.

I could afford the extra 10k, and the M3, but my advisor said don't spend more than 10% of your income on a car. That's why I have a home.
I drive what I want...not what I can scrape up the payments for.
If you drive what you want, why do you drive a g35?
I'm in Canada. A TSX with navigation is 40k. G35 with Navigation, and sport package is $51,370.00 before Tax. I'm 35 years of age, with a home, family and I'm a car enthusiast. At this point in my life, I want to save, build assests and drive a fun car that allows me to have financial freedom and own the things I do. I'm the person that Acura was marketing the car for. It fits my life perfectly. So, you're missing the point. I don't want a g35, as it does not appeal to me. Faster or not. I see kids in my area that live at home with their parents driving them. I don't associate the g35 with status or it being worth my extra 10 or more grand. Over 4 years with interest, that's 14k. Keep in mind in Canada you have to earn 28k to get 14k (50% tax bracket here). You're 10k difference means I have to earn 28 thousand dollars more to drive the "next class level" of car. I'm just explaining this to you so you understand that for 40k, which was my price range, it was the best for me. I think it plenty fast and a true joy to drive for me everyday. I'm sure you feel that way about your car.
You have it good in the US, with cars.
Here's a quote for you from a recent comparison test.
That leaves us with the number one car here on the list, the Acura TSX. It's the most complete car on the list, with fluid handling, a gearbox that feels as if all of its innards are coated with Teflon, and refinement that others simply couldn't match. If that wasn't enough, the Acura's technology left us deeply impressed and often with our jaws dropped.
This was comparing the Mazda 6, Jetta 2.0, volvo s40 and Acura TSX.

I think it's fantastic that a car that's not even in the same 'class' as the G35 is being compared to it.
"You really just don't get it."
Will all do respect. We're not on the same page and i'm ok with that.

You're fixated on which car is fastest. You're entire discussion of what's important about a car is based on which car would 'win'. That sounds like insecurity really. There are SUV's that are faster than a g35. A neon could be faster. For some of us, it's no big deal, because I don't drive to 'win'.

You guys need to back off and stand down. This has turned into a personal spitting contest that's not helpful to anyone.
Agree to disagree and move on. And please knock off the personal remarks altogether.

I currently drive a TSX. The lease is up in October. I've been car shopping and the G35 is at the top of my list.
The TSX is a nice car, but very neutral- nothing to love or hate about it. The G35 seems more of a comparison to the TL (which I think is ugly).
Also test drove the Lexus IS250. Very nice, but given the price difference between the IS and TSX, I'd buy another TSX.
The G35 offers much more than the TSX, including a personality!

I don't understand why people say you can't compare these cars. They both fulfill the same role in the marketplace, just with different emphasis. Does everyone here buy the most expensive car they can afford
My decision came down to the 2007 Infiniti G35 -or- the 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
For me, it had nothing to do with price or the top speed/0-60 times, even though the G was $300,000 less in price.
The G had more cup holders.

People are welcome to compare cars across segments. People who think the comparos are inappropriate are welcome not to participate.
