UPDATE: We spoke to the folks at Nissan and got some more info for you. We were wondering what the difference between the base car and the Journey was. The Journey adds the following items as standard equipment:
  • Auto on/off headlights
  • Dual HVAC
  • In-dash CD6
  • 8-way Power Passenger Seat
Additionally, there are no options available for the base car. Buyers must step up to Journey or Sport 6MT if they want to add premium, navigation, sport, etc.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Aug. 1, 2007) – Infiniti today announced pricing on the all-new 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe, which goes on sale August 21 at Infiniti retailers nationwide.

      Don't forget BMW 50000 miles free maint.

      Thats icing on the cake!

      I had the same problem with options when I bought my Lexus. The only brand that didn't have a stupid (I guess it is smart for the dealers since they bank) option package was Acura. Acura had (on TSX/TL) either with navigation or without navigation (okay and S-type but that is a different engine not an accessory). I wish all cars would just be loaded by manufacturer and not silly dealer options.

        Some of us want cars without all the add-ons. I want a few select options but other things are worthless to me and I don't want to pay for them.

      Look, I'd take a 335 over a G any day. That TT inline 6 is frickin' phenomenal.

      But, Rice Rocket? Gimme a break. The G35 and G37 are beautifully sculptured cars, especially compared to the Bangled Bimmers.

      And the VQ sounds like crap? Apparently, you've never, driven a car with one or even heard one. Magazines after magazines rave about it and it's been on Ward's 10Best Engines (which also includes the Bimmer's inline 6) for 6 or 7 years straight. The VQ is a melodious, superb engine, that unfortunately, just can't quite match BMW's TT I6. It's by no means a crappy engine.

      The problem with hatin' is you throw all logic and common sense out the door...and then no one takes you seriously.

      If you had said, "For $34K, you can get a 335i sedan. Sure it's uglier, but it has the best engine and handling in any car under $50K"...more people would have agreed with you.
        • 8 Years Ago
        A guy calling himself "RACER X" calling anything "rice" is pretty ironic...
        • 8 Years Ago
        Rattling tin sound? Ever heard a 2005 M3? Would you call that rice? By the way, there is no rattle in th VQ exhaust note, just the gargle. Sounds more like a V8 than a 4 banger if you ask me.
        • 8 Years Ago
        Wushu - you need to work on your math brother. Even at sticker a 335i starts at 40k. With sport package it's still only 41-42k. You don't need the other garbage and you can easily order one from the factory with just standard equipment and the ZSP.
        • 8 Years Ago
        I never said it was a bad engine. But I despise the way it sounds, and I've heard plenty of them. It sounds like a damn Japanese 4-Cylinder and I can't stand that. That's enough to classify it as a rice-rocket for me.

        As for the other guy that was criticizing me I wasn't comparing the Sentra to the G37 in terms of the actual cars I was comparing the exhausts notes. They both have that rattling tin can sound that I despise. There's no point in debating exhaust sounds though because some people find that rattle delightful.

      The annoying thing about Infiniti packaging - you must get a bunch of crap to get one or two features. For instance, the sport package is a must but the G37 manual will probably come without bi-xenon headlights standard. So you gotta opt for either the tech package or the premium pack (can't remember which has the xenons). Moonroof is also separate, so that requires either opting for the 1k roof or going for the premium package too. When it's all said, the sticker will break 39k.

      That doesn't seem bad until I do Euro Delivery pricing on a 335i and get it with the features I want for about 39k (335i coupe, sport package, comfor access, pdc, heated seats, metallic paint, shipping, 1k dealer profit). Suddenly the price of the G35 doesn't seem that great. Even with a 2k discount from sticker, it'd still be a not-so-great deal.

      I like the last body style more. This one got too round and swoopy. Alas, no dealer is going to stock one starting out at the base price listed. Still a lot of car for the money though, just not my taste.
      • 8 Years Ago
      Wow, they made it ugly. Unfortunate, as the previous car looked pretty nice.

      Also unfortunate is that more power is the LAST thing the G350Z needed to be taken seriously as a performer. It had plenty already. It needs to lose some fat and learn how to handle.

      Needless to say I won't be getting one.
      • 8 Years Ago
      More horsepower and torque than a Porsche Cayman S! And I'll bet the headlights turn off automatically when you turn the ignition off too, unlike Porsche.
        • 8 Years Ago
        And the Porsche weighs what 800lbs less.. Too bad the G37 is a porker..
      • 8 Years Ago

      I would take the G37 over the 335i, i just like the looks of the G more and the fact that it is a skyline.

      And are you def the G37 sounds even better than de 335i.
      • 8 Years Ago

      It's possible within a day or two to get a BMW over the 1200 mile break-in threshold while in Europe. I did so over the course of my 2 week trip to Europe. I picked up my 330i, drove to France, spent time tooling around down there and then back to Germany. Once in Germany I was easily over 1200 miles.

      Of course, another school of though: break-in is overblown and worthless. Some will tell you to drive it like you stole it; others will be conservative and admonish you to keep it below 100 and 5k rpm. To each his own.
      • 8 Years Ago
      way too expensive. who would spend that much on another rice rocket when you can buy german high-quality engineering in that price range?

      the 3-series coupe debuts at almost the same price-point as that for pete's sake
        • 8 Years Ago
        hey testicle di cock-face...

        if you compare both cars fully loaded, the "high-quality"(tranny/electrical problem prone) german engineered 3 series will easily run $10,000 more, GENIUS.

        obviously you're getting your info from reading brochures, while people who own/drive/have knowledge about luxury cars know that the sticker price on bmw's/german cars pretty much mean squat since all options needed to be added on. all of which pile up and end up costing you much more compared to the practically identical competitors options.

        oh, i recall that there's an article where the g37 overtook the 3 series coupe. lol, maybe your parents/relatives can buy a bmw and you can once again pretend to know what you're talking about.

        enjoy reading your bimmer brochures testicle di cock-face!!

        • 8 Years Ago
        So because it's Japanese, it's a "rice rocket", but you'd have no problem with it if it were German or something else other than Japanese?

        Filthy piece of racist trash.
        • 8 Years Ago
        Nay No thanks, this car can go up to 40K+ easily.
        • 8 Years Ago
        not to mention this car is U-G-L-Y
      • 8 Years Ago
      I do not care for this cars appearance, it is one of those styles that gets old fast. No matter what Nissan does to the front it still looks cheap.
      • 8 Years Ago
      too expensive! i rather get a bmw 3 series coupe. it looks better. i am disappointed in infiniti.
