06 E90 325 vs 05 G35

I know its a bmw forum but.. without being biased.. what would you choose? I know in the end it comes to what i like more.. but just curious...

The updated G35 sedan - rare white, rare 6 speed, that means 298 HP, a little upgraded interior.. overall i love the look...
98,000 km for 14,800..

06 325 - love the white, 6 speed, less HP (215 HP?)
101,000 km.. for 15,500$

Have you driven both? If you have and it's not painfully clear the E90 is the better car, the G35 is perfect for you.

I have driven the E90, yeah but not as a test drive, and I have driven G35 sedan, but never the 6 speed.. Thats obivoulsy my next step is to take both for a good drive..

What is it better in ? I'm just curious to see your opinion.

Steering, brakes, control feel, handling. That sort of thing. The G35 is perfect for those who buy cars on stats (it's larger for less money, more power, more toys, etc). If you're really a driving enthusiast the E90 is the better car. But not everyone is, and there's nothing wrong with that.

According to reputable automotive publications, the difference isn't as much as you say it is. Check out some comparos on Car and Driver.

Funny, it's their articles that paint the picture clearest to me.

Like all the cars on this comparison test, in isolation the G35 feels like a winner, but it only takes a drive in the 328i to understand why the Infiniti is second best.

I test drove a G35 6 speed before getting my 330i. Even though the G35 has more HP but i think it is over rate in many ways. (G35 owners don't shoot me)
If speed is what matters you the most then there are countless choice that is good to your wallet if you want over driving experience and not to look too racy then BMW all the way.

Suggestions of choice between these 2 cars are good but ultimately.. its your choice.... maybe you want a change from BMW, and there is nothing wrong with a G35, or 350Z or RX7...buy what makes you happy....

Neither, although slightly more money, the 330 e90 is the way I'd go. With the 325 you'll always be yearning for more power, and the G35 is well......a Nissan, not impressed at all, unless as Jay says you're shopping off of a spec sheet, I've driven two now, both 6 speeds, one two door one four door and it feels cheap and DOES NOT have the same feel and ultimate performance as the e90. There is a reason why it's resale is less than the Bimmer's.
