to be fair here, and not go anti-BMW... you KNOW that Infiniti financial services (nissan really but whatever) is gonna bang the consumer with really high down payment, and not have free service for 5 years. 90% of luxury cars are leases, so even though the MSRP may be lower, the residual will probably be much lower as well...

this is life with japanese cars...

Am I the only one that digs the design? looks mean with that wide stance!

The residual of the G35/G37 are/will be almost as good as the 335i. In fact, I am almost positive the G35 sedans 3 year residual is within 2% of the e90 335i. Where Infiniti gets you is their money factor.

Wait; they can't sell G35s? AFAIK it was the best selling Infiniti ever, no? I thought they were #2 behind the combined 3 series sales for like 3 years.

Here is another review that says the G37 reveals a few short coming from the 335i:

The 335i is better. The performance is better, and let's face it, these are performance sedans. Get the G37 if you want to underperform, but have a review saying you've won.

At the track, the 335i wins everytime. The car guy knows this. The G37 is a BMW dream.

We don't know it's a better track car yet. The 335i won the skidpad in the MT test.
