^^they are changing the body style on that g35 next year i think

For real?  For some reason I thought they just changed that shit like a year or 2 ago. 

nope all they did was increase HP on G35 over the 350z.  G35 pushes around 300+ and 350z pushes around 260+ i believe.  Anyways man i would highly recommend a BMW, as a fellow BMW driver i got mine last May an 06 X5 i loooooooove the drive, awesome car.  Warranty is very affordable on a BMW i put the extended warranty until 100,000 miles and i don't have to pay for a dime until then.  full maintenance from the ground up, new brakes new spark plugs new everything, maintenace is every 15,000 miles for it.  You don't have to change your oil until your 15,000 miles so oil changes are free but i didn't do that, i changed my oil filter after 8,000 and just added castrol full syntec oil.  i get free road side assistance until my warranty ends and if i ever get into a wreck BMW will take care of all the body work and give me BMW loaner for the meanwhile.  I say check out a 5 series or a dope 3 series, maybe the twin turbo coupe they have.  

I'm suppose to get a new car next year i'm looking at a G35, M3, or WRX STI.  I'm leaning towards the STI, 300 hp all wheel drive turbo sounds awesome and i get more bang for my buck.

Thanks for the knowledge man.  Isn't the Subaru much more sport than luxury?  I honestly know nothing about that car.  M3 is so fuckin sick.

yeah the STI is more sport than anything but i love the look of the car and i wouldn't have to worry about putting some mods into the engine like a bigger blowoff valve for the turbo or a fatter exhaust so the turbo can breathe better.  and if you were to get a G35 or M3 you sure as hell can't put any mods onto that shit because the simplest thing could void your warranty for example if you drop some rims onto your ride which are not approved by BMW and your suspension fucks up......your fucked and so is your wallet, you still warranty everywhere else but your suspension will no longer be covered if BMW realizes the problem happen because of the rims and BMW warns any buyer of this void in your warranty. but if your looking for the best of both worlds sport and luxury then the M3 is the way to go, that is the cheapest sport/luxury you can get for your money right now i believe so.  the g35 is sick don't give me wrong i would love to have one but there's no comparison.....M3>>>>>>G35 i'm thinking about the M3 but i'm waiting for the redesigned model to come out later this year or early next i'm pretty sure it's going to push at 400+ hp now that BMW also has a 3 series twin turbo coupe pushing 350 hp which is about 20 more hp than what the M3 is pushing now. 

but honestly man you can't go wrong with either car i'm thankful and blessed for the car i have now.
Oh I like this one... One dog goes one way, the other dog goes the other way, and this guy's sayin', "Whadda ya want from me?

The 2008 Infiniti G35 Coupe should sprint to 60 mph in way less than 5.5 seconds. The current G35 coupe does it in 5.9 with a 298 hp version of the VQ 3.5L. The 2008 estimate is 330+ hp, even with the new SAE horsepower ratings. Technically, if it wasn't for the new rule, that estimate would been somewhere in the neighbourhood of 350+. Those are amazing numbers coming from a naturally aspirated V6. The new BMW 335i Coupe on the other hand has a twin turbocharged 3.0 L Inline 6 with 300 hp. The Infiniti should smoke the Beemer. It already does in my eyes. If the production version looks anything like the concept, it will be a sure winner. Compared to the BMW, the G has a bigger, more powerful engine, better styling, more technology, and probably much more.
I've forgot more about music and sports than you will ever know!!!

wait for the M3 man....hahaha just wait and see it will push more than the G35.

btw the 335i has no turbo lag whatsoever so i don't know about the new G35 smoking the 335i let alone the new M3
