2007 G35 Question... Is it just me?!

Please, tell me that it's not just me?!

Kind of uncanny... if I was a G35 owner, I wouldn't want my car to resemble that boring Lexus. And if I was a GS owner, I wouldn't want my car to resemble that Infiniti hooligan-mobile.

2007 Infiniti G35:



2006 Lexus GS:

The front on those cars do not look anything alike and either do the rears. Am I missing something?

Well considering that I was talking about the parts of the cars in between the front and the rear, I'd say you missed just about everything.

I have to agree with Whippersnapper here. Sorry, but there's no comparison there.

On the otherhand, the pictures I posted show that there's an uncanny similarity in the profile and general shape of the GS and the G35.

And YES, I know they have different headlights and taillights, thanks. But they are not "so OMG lieK TOTALY DIFFRINT@!" like someone said.

Me?

Well, all I can say is that I'm glad I'm going back on your ignore list for this nonsense.

You. Whippersnapper. Valiant defender of expressing individual opinions (or at least that's how you justify your unending criticism of the E92...) hating on someone for expressing their opinion on the similar profiles of two vehicles?

*gasp* Inconceivable. *rolls eyes* Thanks for the troll-like comments, was fun. Please note the liberal use of sarcasm, and watch your step as you exit.

Ah, they both look OK (g35 and GS), but one thing for sure -- both of them stole our Hofmeister Kink Design. Whats next -- they are going to try to match our handling

Oh I know, this wasn't meant as criticism of any kind towards either design. I actually think the G35 in particular looks very sharp. I was just pointing out what I thought were the similarities.

I guess some people stay angry at everything in life, instead of seeing the good side of things.

I think the profile (side view) shape is very similar but there are MANY differences otherwise.

More importantly, who cares? Isn't this a BMW E90 board??
