If you do the side by side comparison the wheels are larger on the M, the seats adjust more that also are ventilated (not available on the G), outside mirrors tilt in reverse, more memorized driver settings, headlight sensers, and pre-collision safety system. You can also get rear headsets on the M with the video system and of course the 14 speaker surround system. As for as interior size, the M has a little more than 3 inches more leg room in the back seat. That 3 inches doesn't sound like much, but it is.

Anybody own a G35 AWD and driven it in the snow? That will be a big factor if we purchase one or not. Any help would be great!

Hello. I have driven the AWD in the snow. We got hit with a blizzard the day after we picked it up from the dealership. It did a great job in the snow. The traction control was great and made it nearly impossible to spin out or fishtale on turns. The biggest thing I noticed and liked about the AWD in Snow Mode is that it cuts the throttle response way down. The car has a lot of power and I have a hard time not getting on it during normal conditions so the 1/2 throttle response in snowy conditions was great. I think you will be pleased with this car in snowy conditions.

Having given you what I consider a reasonable explanation for your MPG woes, I'm curious as to your actual situation.
Are you in SoCal doing 50-mile commutes or in North Dakota going two miles at a time?
The thing about the Internet is that it's supposed to be interactive, not a vacuum.

Is the MPG that bad? I'm considering between the G35 ane the Lexus IS250. Both cars are going for about the same price and the IS has very good milage but with 100hp less. Tough choice.

I've been driving the AWD version for a little more than a month now and with 1800 miles I have averaged 19mpg overall (and that is with quite a bit of hard driving from time to time becuase it is a very fun drive). I also went on a 600 mile highway trip and averaged about 23mpg on that trip which included some city driving. So, my experience has been better than what I've read here. One other note, the car calls for Premium gas, but the dealer told me I don't need to use it. I have been using Premium since the owner's manual, gas cap, etc. all say Premium but who knows if it is necessary.

Thanks. Premium gas isn't a problem for me as I'm feeding my current TSX with it as well. How's the reliability issue on infiniti in general?

I am in Dallas Texas and driving 45 miles commute with 40% of highway driving. This time of the year in Dallas Texas, the temperature ranges from upper 30s to high 60s. So far, I am only getting 14.1 MPG with 521 total miles.

Your MPG is right around the EPA MPG range. Unfortunately, mine is far less than what they are claiming. I am using the Premium Gas and still getting 14 MPG. Have you experienced different MPG driving the first 1000 miles so called break-in period.

I read the great review on 2007 G35 and it is fun to drive, but it is painful to fill up the gas every 270 miles per tank. I am so disappointed with the gas mileage and can not trust EPA MPG. If others are getting different MPG in city, something are not right. I am going to bring the car to the dealer for any possible tuning.
The sales man claiming the poor mileage only occurs during the break-in period.
I am trying to collect more information from the forum to deal with the situation.
