Newly updated Infiniti site for 2007 G35 sedan

http://www.infiniti.com/allnewG

Lots of new photos and information. Sources says the new G35 will be near the current pricing. Meaning you can get the basic G35 Sport model (HID, leather, 306hp, 5.2sec to 60mph, alum pedals, LSD, 18" wheel with Potenza RE050 and more) for only like $33k. The sport seat will even have power width adjustment for side bolster, leg bolster and manual thigh extension.

This gonna be one hell of car with awesome value. It may not win over 335i sedan buyers but it's crazy to buy IS350 (average priced at near $40k or over) instead of this car.

I honestly think it looks a bit blase and wouldn't be suprised if it ages quickly (styline wise) like the previous G35 sedan.

The pricing for the G35 has always made it the best bang for buck. I'd like to see how infiniti responds to the e92 335 when the g35 coupe comes out.

Alot of people hate, but its undenyable. The G35 is the next best thing to the 3-series and its better for the money.

Drive a G35 with 30,000 miles on it, drive a BMW with 120,000 miles on it. The BMW will be a much more solid vehicle. Consumers dont buy long term. If you like infiniti, you must love wal mart. Unfortunately for Infiniti, they cheapen very fast.
Bascially, I really dont like the G sedan. The G coupe is nice, but it doesnt hold up well at all

Drove a G35 for 2 weeks when my car was totaled. Number are deceiving, doesn't compare overall to 3 Series IMO.

I drove a 06 g35 coupe before my e90... IMO, comparing these two cars like comparing apples to oranges. I love both cars though. I sorta miss my g35 coupe.

I like the G but instead of just increasing the power they should have spent more time increasing their MPG to go along with it. The last generation averaged in the teens and from what I have read so does this one.

Still have my Jap Maxima with 119,000 miles and holding up very well. I will see how the Germans compare. So far Nissan 1 and BMW 0. Never had to take a car in as much as I have with the Bimmer.

i test drove a g35 sedan. was quick in the straight line. car seemed heavy though, and handling is not up to par compared to bmw. i also thought it had one of the worst interiors, especially for a car in its price bracket.

the new g35 sedan looks more like a refresh. smoothed out some lines, and added some design features similar to it's bigger brother the m35/45. from the pics, looks like the interior is improved however.

If BMW's did not exist, I could not think of another car I would own in this class.

The exterior of the new G35 is more coupe like--a tremendous improvement over the sedan (which I didn't like) it replaces. The side roofline has a very 3-series-like look about down to the Hoffmeister kink. The "sword-inspired" grille has an interesting detail twist.

I thought the 54/46 front/rear distribution of the coupe to be a little off, and the sedan is 53/47. Perhaps if they had a 3.0L instead of a 3.5L, the weight would be more 50/50. I test drove a friend's 2006 G35 coupe, and it doesn't have the same road feel and precision of an E90, but it was still awfully nice.

I love the way Infiniti redesigned the back of the sedan. The old back was utter crap and they kept changing the lights every year until I guessed they decided it was time to scrap the entire design all togther. If Infiniti had released it earlier, I would've seriously considered getting it for the value and the new look. Then again, I would not have known first hand about BMW's handling and feel either. Now that I know however, I don't think I'd get anything but a bimmer!
