The g35 looks nice...however it dosn't come close to looking as nice as the M 330 IMO. What you could always do, is buy the g35 as your everyday/daily driver, and with the money you save, buy a nice e30 and use that as your fun/hobby car...That way you arn't turning your back on BMW

lotsa cars offer better value, but, a BMW is a BMW
too bad its all made in mexico






I think ive given up on all those "european" machines..

mercedes, bmw.. their prime is over. people dont even buy these cars for the cars anymore, they only buy it for the name..


WOW another BMW... get the G35 coupe.. looks awesome.. sound good too and has got power. plus you said you already had a BMW didn't you?

anyway do whats right. All cars come out of a factory anyway.. Its not lik BMWs are any more "specially crafted" then acuras or infinitis.

good luck with the purchase.


p.s
BMWs dont even look the greatest on their exterior anyways.. they all have the same look. I agree with everything soldo has said so far.

I like the way the Bm looks better but if I'm being honest I like the drive of the G35 better, interior is a toss up to me.

There is no comparison. The only brand worth comparing is Mercedes-Benz. G35 is nice, 280hp, but its an Infiniti. Get the bimmer. You'll be glad you did.
p.s. what colours you looking at bro?
Yes seeing the propellor on all these bimmers turning rice.. like a upper-class Honda just screams "high stature" to me.

Sorry bro.. but bimmer's are losing a lot of the 'class' they once had. Benz, Porsche, Jag are all on another level at this point.

The Infiniti is still more rare than the bimmer... and still extremely classy---especially in comparison to a 3-series.

my two cents.

Finally, got some people on my side!

Sirex, me and you seein eye to eye?!
Guess anything is possible, hehehe!

"mercedes, bmw.. their prime is over. people dont even buy these cars for the cars anymore, they only buy it for the name.. "
Couldn't agree more, its so very true, i'm not gonna deny that at one point BMW's were in fact the BEST of the BEST, but that time is over!

And Justins got the right idea also, look in the trader and do a search on some 3 series, pretty cheap for the NUMBER ONE CAR 10 YEARS IN A ROW, isn't it?

Soldo, it is nice to see a person on your side that doesn;t know shit.
None of the BMWs are made in Mexico, sirex.

No matter what happens German cars will always be a status up than their Japanese competitors. Maybe one day, but not in our lifetime.

BMW has definitely lost alot of their brand cachet... I mean dont you guys remember like 8-9 years ago, owning a BMW meant alot more than it does now, it was much more of a prestigous car.
Now you would have thought that to counter the slow decline of prestige BMW would keep ahead with technology, but it doesn't seem to be the case across the board.
While BMW does have very solid, characteristic handling, they haven't kept up in engine performance at all.
And lets face it no matter how hard you try convince yourself that the new 5 looks good or the new 3 is gonna look good... that fact that you have to convince yourself says it all.
I mean when I saw the 350Z, or the E55 for the first time I simply thought wow. When I see the new 3 i think "it will grow on me."
Well thats BS. The new BMW should make you say "holy shit that looks good."
BMW is sadly going downhill.
Finally while im ranting the new 6 looks like shit. Far too big and its way overpriced for what you get.
Who the hell would choose that over a porsche?
