How is a cable a $500 option and not standard??? But I digress. In an ideal world, or one where money is not an object at least, most people would go 335i vert. But my opinion is that you get nearly as good of a car for much less in price with the G37 vert. That said, either way you go, pick a color that hides those hard-top seams...
thanks for the thoughts. i hope the 2010 G37 Vert comes out in the next couple of months (my 335Ci is up in April) with the higher resolution screen. i will surely miss having the iDrive knob within grasp while keeping my eyes on the road. i don't like that Infiniti has all those buttons and a similar knob in front of the monitor. any thoughts on Infiniti Navi/BT/ipod interface?
and yes i would get the G37 conv with black exterior, stone interior. i probably wouldn't get the S (or sport pkg) because i wouldn't want to sacrafice the cooling seat function!
