I'm taking a recent survey to see what members on here would do such a thing. This being trade their pride and joy rare 2002 SOM 6spd Camaro Z28 with a nice rumbling exhaust and their daily driver Durango that has 3 rows for passengers/friends/car parts also with a better rumble then a rice mobile for a INFINITY G35????????? Just putting the feeler out there.... due to one of our fellow members may be going over to the dark side and I dont think he's gonna make it to be honest. So please put this poor poor poor, poor poor indvidual back into reality before its to late or it may be cause he may have gotten it yesterday.

The sad part is he doesnt know I stole his Camaro last nite. I put a nice hood, aftermarket suspension, nicer wheels/tires,fixed a few minor things, tinted the windows, some black outs and then pee'd all over the G35 and left burn out marks from his car all around it. Not sure if he'll get the idea.

What the hell is wrong with this guy? Has he just taken to many 8 eightballs to the head or something? Why would anyone even consider such a stupid ass move? This is ridiculous. Someone that knows the member who is thinking of doing this please walk upto him and kick him right in the ass. HARD!! Tell him its from Navy01Z and then do it again just to make the point clear.

I myself would denitiely not trade any LS1 fbody for any foriegn car. If you're looking at a G35 I think you might as well go all the way and buy a Vette.

That car has a V6 and barely gets better fuel economy than the LS1! The F-Body does have a horrible interior but loose the Dookrango and get a Civic. Keep the Z

If running high 13s at best in a $35k car thats very impractical with a tiny trunk and a kiddie sized back seat is nice to you, than yes you are correct.

Do a quick search on some of the G35/350Z forums and see how many of those guys have tranny problems and are dealing with a slew of minor gremlins like crappy door locks/window motors etc.

And check the gas mileage. The 330 hp VQ that the Infiniti nut hangers love so much actually gets worse mileage on the highway than the LS2 while giving up SEVENTY+ horsepower.

Did I forget to mention the VQ is physically larger as well?

So lets see the G35 isn't very quick, in fact a basic V6 Toyota Camry is less that a half-second off its heels in the 1/4 mile. Its very small inside, a 10 year-old would be uncomfortable in that back seat. It doesn't get great gas mileage, tons of BMW 335I owners are reporting mileage well into the high 20s in mixed driving while Infiniti drivers dream of that. Other than sleek styling and being able to tell name-drop fans that you have an Infiniti, I'm not sure I'm seeing where a G35/G37 coupe is that great?

It cracks me up to hear people promote cars like this as far as performance goes. OOOO a couple magazines got them to run 13.7-13.8. Ford's Mustang Cobra ran that in '93 along with well driven LT1 cars. Somehow Infiniti is looked upon as a industry leader in performance yet they are lagging behind a performance bar that was set 15 years ago. Color me impressed.

FWIW a close friend of mine had a 600+ RWHP Kenne Bell Cobra that had an up close and personal meeting with a house. He then got a G35 and liked it at first, than got sick of it. He tells me all the time he misses the feel/sound of a V8 and is not itching to get into an SRT8 car.

If you want something nicer than an FBody and you want to have just one vehicle and not too, I understand that. But don't get the Infiniti. I'd strongly suggest a 300SRT8 or Charger SRT8. For an SUV look at the TB SS or Jeep SRT8. Don't forget to check out the G8 GTs. They are HUGE inside.

I don't recall where anyone said I was doing it because I "thought it was faster", which is always everyones immediate response on a car forum for saying not to get a specific car. You obviously can't beat the pure balls-per-dollar of an LS1 (there's no denying that) lol, but sometimes you get a car for reasons beyond flat out horsepower. :)

Bruce just made this thread to bust my balls about it lol.

If you really are considering the G35, I think you should atleast look at the G8, the SRT8 cars and the BMW 335I.

And Bruce takes it in the ass, he has for 4 years.

I want something nicer, but I also am not rich. I will never buy a brand new car, as you will always lose money as soon as you drive off the lot. So the G8 and 335i are out, not to mention the Bimmer STARTS at $40K (aka WELL out of my price range). The Dodges are just huge and I don't want a huge car. Also, a manual tranny is high on my priority list, so that is another reason to count out the Dodges and the G8 for now. The G35 coupe just hits a lot of points for me, and the overall styling and they are also pretty fun, having 298hp, 6-spd manual tranny, and LSD rear.

I normally get 13-15mpg around town and 20mpg on the highway. The G35 can't be any worse than that.

Its very small inside, a 10 year-old would be uncomfortable in that back seat.
I can get in the back. I'm 5'10, 185lbs. Although my head does hit the glass.

I'm not sure I'm seeing where a G35/G37 coupe is that great?
Better build quality. Nicer interior. More "grown-up" feel. Better ride. Its beautiful.

It cracks me up to hear people promote cars like this as far as performance goes. OOOO a couple magazines got them to run 13.7-13.8.
I made no mention of it being faster. I just said that it was a better car. Its all subjective.

I'd rather have an Audi. My younger brother has an 2004 Audi S4. :drool: He's got me thinking of an S5 (I prefer a coupe). Although its a bit expensive. Maybe a used one in a few years. The new Audi TT coupe is nice. And the price isn't too bad either.... but its a bit small.

lets see, trade 2 cars one being an F-Body, for a smaller, lighter, slower and ugly'er car.......WTF? I cant quite fathom this un-justifying ordeal. How do you go from american muscle to a RICE!!!?.....i converted from rice to muscle and quite frankly it is the best thing i have done in my LIFE, lol. Some one sit him down and show him the numbers by the book, G35 is such a BITCH mobile.....SORRY had to be said!!!!

Once again, who said anything about this having to do with speed or power? No one has said anything about the G35 being able to dyno more horsepower or run quicker ETs. Seriously people... there is no intent for it to be a race car. And as for the rice comment, its not like I'm buying a '91 CRX with underbody neons and Pep Boys shift knob lol.

You'll love the G, it's a much nicer car, and it doesn't look like a door wedge going down the road.

Hell, I would sell a crapmaro if I owned one just because of how the members of this forum act.

Nope, the G isn't faster, nope, it doesn't get the same fuel mileage. Maybe Reid doesn't care about that. Foreign cars have the dumbmestics asses kicked build wise every day of the week.

Hell Reid, if you want to build a car for taking to the drag strip later on down the road, I'll help you put a little ol' 4 cyl jap crapper together that will embarasses most of the people in this thread at the drag strip, and do the same on the street.

How's that 10 sec pass coming Bruce. :devil: I'll still trade you some MPH for some 60'.

Makes sense. If leasing is your thing I know the 335I leases well.

Any interest in a GTO?

Nah I'm not a big fan of leasing. I did look into some of the options listed, and GTOs and CTS-Vs were high on the list as both can be found in the mid-20K range now (and of course trying to stick with LSX and T56), but I just don't fit right in a GTO for some reason. Its a decent sized car, but just couldn't get comfortable in it (6'-4" head was up against the roof unless slouching a lot). Both cars are just a little too heavy and I wanted something a bit more nimble.

On a side note, I did see a vid of a G8 running 13.0 or 13.1 or something at like 107mph. That was def impressive! Too bad its only automatic for now though. I can't wait to see how well they respond to mods! :devil:

FWIW I sold my 98 z28 and 2001 expedition for my g35x as I bought a house and had a driveway but no garage (for right now) for the camaro. I do like the g35x but I miss my camaro something awful. It depends though if you want to have two cars sucking down gas and having two insurance payments or just one car to deal with. When I had my camaro I also had the 2001 Expedition as well so Id have a winter car and it was fun having two cars but insurance wasnt cheap so I sold both and got the infinity. Good cars but no where near the same planet fun wise/performance wise as an ls1 powered vehicle.

honestly the g35 is a really nice car but i wouldn't trade in two vehicles to get it. Maybe you could sell both your cars and then buy the g35 if you really want it that badly, you would definately make more money by selling your cars even though it may take a while

Thats the most foolish thing ever, the G35 will be WORTHLESS in 3 years like every other new car.
