Hi I was wondering if I can get a 04 G35 for $13,500, should I trade my 3 for it? I always really loved the g35 and I just now have a personal connection with dealer. He is buying this wholesale for an auction.

why go from extrodinary to ordinary? You have a awsome 3 with a f2 turbo kit that could smoke that g35, just like my ms3 does everyday, keep your car, save some money and buy a g37 or whatever in a year. Also you know the satus of the internal parts of your 3, that g35 could have all sorts of problems inside

LOL that is true. I was just thinking about it because I can get it for dirt cheap. But my 3 would be nice! A regular looking 3 beating a g35 :shock: I just wanted to get some of the members' opinion.

HEHEHE I guess I'll stick with the 3. I was just thinking of it. You know when you have those thoughts in the middle of the night?

A G35 is a great car. I LOL at the comparison to a 3, though.

I wouldn't, however, pay $15k for car that's almost 5 years old.

Sometimes, i dont understand why people like the 1st generation G35 coupe. They're obviously in the market for a sports car, why not get the sportier, lighter, but otherwise identical 350Z?

Yeah I understand that people are in the market for "luxury", but when these "luxury" gets in the way of a sports car, no no no no no no

They are selling for at least 20k. I can actually get the G35 for $12,500 so about $13,500 total, but I can never know about the condition of the internals unless I open up the engine. I have 1 month to test it out and if it is bad I can return it to the auction. WTF now, the poll is tied?

G35s are nice, but honeslty an altima will kill them. The g37 would probably beat an altima cause of the power difference. The g35s weigh 700-800 lbs more then a 3. The altima weighs only 300 lbs more.

g35 weighs about 3500lbs and altima weighs about 3300lbs. G35 has 280hp and 270lbs-ft of torque while the Altima has 270hp and 258lbs-ft of torque. IMHO the g35 looks better than the Altima.

I know when i looked at the coupe 3.5 is was just over 3200. The sedan would be around 3300. But also the G35 allwheel does 0-60 6 seconds roughly, the 3.5 altima (sedan) under 6 seconds. I think you should keep your turbod 3 though definatly.
