I can tell you that I dont care about doing 0-60 in 4.9 seconds but thats not going to stop me from saying that the 335i is a better car than the G. I can tell you that I dont care about the superior handling of the 335i as well. If you dont care about some things thats YOU, but it doesnt change the status quo. Personally when I buy a car I want everything my money can buy, including the latest tech available, the idea of driving with a million cds is retarded to ME. The idea of having a million buttons in a car instead of intergrating everything in touch screen is not the best for me as well. But I wont personalize this, the fact is one car offers more modern stuff than the other. Now add the extra horses, then its a no brainer to a lot of people.

That is a typo. Should be "than" not "to" - "That is much more fun than running fast in straight line."

Let me rephrase. - If you want to know something about sports sedan, get a stick shift and play some heel toe. That is just basic. If you are that proud of your G, you should get a (again) stick shift with RWD at the beginning. G35X w/auto is just not what most people known perfect sports sedan setup - Front Engine, Rear Wheel Drive and a must have- stick shift.
Even a punk kid can drive G w/auto 0-60 in 6 seconds. What's point? It just show their stupidness.
r34 is right. Sport sedans emphasize more on handling and feedback from the road, not only the power...

Good to know 2.0T engine is the top 10 engine. However, I like to say, those reviews or rewards are just for reference. Only yourself can decide which car fit for you.
If I just trust all those reviews, I might get a Chevy Malibu at the end. Which I don't like it at all.

You are funny. I will respond in a somewhat personal manner as your post is personal.
G has been rated very well for handling and road feel thank you very much. BTW, the G35X is AWD up to 20MPH beyond that its 100% RWD unless slippage in detected so in summer the AWD never kicks in beyond 20mph
The punk kids driving 0-60 in 6 seconds are not stupid. Sorry man, there are just having fun smoking your car.
Personally I love automatics, thats my preference and I will NEVER drive a stick. Thank you very much
Sports cars emphasize handling, feedback & power. A car with all 3 is the better sports car.
Now that we have seen that we cant see eye to eye, we move on.

Again, it pretty much shows what is your priority - smoke the other car. So it may not worth to discuss further down regarding what is a fine car with an outsider of stick shift.

"That is a typo. Should be "than" not "to" - "That is much more fun than running fast in straight line."
Did I say that? I looked at my posts but I couldn't find it.
I think both A4 and G35 are nice cars but some drivers may have some issues.
Some drive the car in a way like driving an Accord or a Grand AM, expecially some G35 coupe drivers (sorry to say that but I saw a lot of them).

Well thats just sad, you pay +30k for a car & you drive it like a grand am!!!
Cars have different dimensions to them, there is bells & whistles, comfort, quiteness, handling, outright power etc. If you paid +30k, better make sure you are enjoying all those dimensions, within the limits of the law of course

Sorry for the confusion.
Also, I agree with your mature statement "....I think sport sedans emphasize more on handling and feedback from the road, not only the power.....". That is pretty much what I thought.
Maybe my RX-8 is doing too well on handling and feedback from the road. That is why I do not feel G has anything spectacular.
