Let's talk about the new G35 sport here!
#2 of 947 Interesting tid-bits
Sep 06, 2006 (10:36 am)
leased a 06 g35 coupe while i wait to purchase the new 08 coupe.
The MSRP on a similarly equipped 06 model is around $2000 less. So we are definitely going to end up paying more for this new model. (not even accounting for that current models r going for atleast 2500 under invoice). So lets say i add the add the navigation and rear view monitor, it comes very near the bmw mark of 335i coupe costing 45k with nav but bmw also includes the service and maintainance. this really starts to get away from the infiniti value proposition.
Where is the damn flash card reader and built in hdd for mp3s. The official brochure infiniti sent me for the 07s had the flash card reader in the picture (but no mention of the hdd). In the edmunds article pictures (or write-up) the flash card reader is no where to be found (or mentioned).
Why can you not get the paddle shifters without the sports tuning. Not everyone needs the sports tuning.

RE: the Second point -- Infiniti has confirmed that the G35 does have an available hard drive for storing music but that hard drive also runs the navigation system (no more DVD based) - therefore, it's sort of an option as it requires the customer to order the nav. 9.5G is allotted for music storage.
It allows you to download music from the CD changer or you can play music via a card slot in the dash.
#4 of 947 "the heat on BMW"?
Sep 06, 2006 (2:07 pm)
I just read the C&D online article about the 335i (turbo) coupe, and it gushes over the ride/handling compromise. Plans are to build a sedan as well. 300 hp/300 ft/lbs.; just as fast as the outgoing M. (4.9 0-60!) Sport suspension is standard, automatic with paddle shifters is available.
It makes for a good comparo, but... Hard to believe that this "harsh riding" 38,000 G35 S will lure as many buyers when it has to compete with a 42,000 BMW that's clearly superior (essentially a four-door M, at least until the V8 M arrives). The price difference won't be enough in the monthly payments, so look for the G's price to drop.

Do you honestly think you are going to find a no options 335i sedan on a dealers lot for $42k when it comes out? I don't think so. I recently test drove a 328i Coupe and it stickered at almost $40k with just Steptronic, Satellite Radio, and Leather as options. In terms of real world pricing, the 335i sedan is going to cost more, period.
An almost loaded G35 Sport for $38k doesn't sound like a bad deal after all. In the October 2006 issue of Motor Trend, they compared the 330i to the new G35 and there was a $9,165 dollar price difference. That is 1/4'th the price of the new G.
#6 of 947 price comparsion
Sep 06, 2006 (7:12 pm)
the value proposition of infiniti is definitely the price. the bmw dealers do not want to discuss for any thing below msrp. u will be able to snag g35s at invoice or below a few months after launch. right now, if u compare the fully loaded g35 coupe (with nav) u r looking at something u can buy for around 36-38k. a similarly equiped (and powerful) bmw is above 45k. though bmw does save u money later thru the maintainance plan. so in realisitic terms, around 5k of difference around 100 dollars a month, which is enuf to lure me towards an infiniti (as it did this time).
however, the price hike in the new g35 models might shake things up... 38k and not even nav.... ridiculous
#7 of 947 3 Series prepare to surrender

I read the C&D review on the new G. The 3 series is toast. 0-60 in 5.2!
I read the Motor Trend 3 series & G35 test. They gave the nod to the 3 series. While the scores were a tie, the editors broke in favor of the 3 because of finesse. I laughed because it is a sport sedan test! The G out ran, out braked & out handled the 3--except in the slalom. Even their online poll has the G as a preference with the folks over the 3 -- 64% to 35% respectively.
#9 of 947 2007 G35 Sedan

Let's make it clear ones and for all about the pricinig between the upcoming G35 and the 3 series BMW. The G35 Sedan will not have a price increase. Also to get the flash card you need to order the Nav. Package wich will replace the 6 disc changer. A BMW might have a 4yrs "free" maintance, but actualy it's not free! They are the only german manifacture that keeps increasing the prices so they can cover the what is suposed to be free maintanance. Do you know that a oil change only on a BMW will run you around $100, in a car that you get a Leatherete-Ridiculous. Keep in mind that if you live in TX for example the first 2 yrs. or 24,000 miles the maintance on the G35 is free and there after you only pay under $40.00 for oil change. And do you know that you don't have to do a tune-up up to a 110,000 miles, that there is no timing belt-it's a timing chain from titanium life time waranty.Speaking of waranty, the Infiniti cars get 4yrs up to 60,000 miles. So guys tell me where is the value in a BMW put against the G35 or any Infiniti cars???? Don't be fooled by the status only car! The Bimmer is no longer the King. Poor reliability, overpriced,very complicated to fix,technology is very poor too. So please, stop complainig that the Infiniti is not that is not this. All the new Infiniti's are very reliable, excelent technology, handeling, performance and Price. And watch closely how in reliability is detroning Lexus in a very near future! If any of you don't apreciate this Great automobile, then you should be looking into a Trabant! In the meentime if you have any additional doubts or hesitation you can contact me by e-mail at perrier61hotmail.com
