Since the G35 coupe is new for 2003, I'm curious what everyone's previous car was (or still is for those with lots of $$$$).

And if you have any regrets.

My last car was a 1999 BMW M Roadster. No regrets here. The M handeled better, but there's nothing I can't do on the streets with the G that I could do with the BMW. Of course I'm getting up in age, so being fast and comfortable at the same time is appealing. [jump2]

Integra. No regrets.

Also had a VTEC Prelude at one point and that was a lot of fun to drive. But there is no comparison between that and the G.

I'm still driving my 1999 Mustang Cobra. But that won't be for too much longer, my G should be here in about 3 to 4 weeks[:D] I'm pretty sure I won't have any regrets with the G!

Milt, didn't you have a DG sedan on order? Or am I confusing you with someone else? [dunno]

I'm still having my 2000 Turbo prelude in addition to the G. But since the day I got the G, I drive it most of the time because it is the ultimate pimpin coupe..

I had a Nissan Maxima. No regrets for me either, although sometimes I miss the extra trunk space.

my old car is still my 1991 turbo mr2. LOL i have not bought the g35 yet.

personally i do not feel a g35 coupe can beat my 1991 turbo mr2 in any form from personal to power and handling. but i do feel teh g35 coupe is an awesome car in its own.

i raced a 350z once and i pulled away from it from start to finish and its want even close. so with this i say i can definity beat a g35.

but i am not being fair because my mr2 turbo is very much modded from engine to suspension , brakes, and almost everything , also i put my mr2 on a diet and it lost about 350lbs, so it weights 2535lbs.

My previous ride was a classic. A 1984 Volvo GL Turbo. My mechanic called it the stealth Volvo. Used to snack on unsuspecting Porsche's on Hwy 17.

But, the 6MT is way much quicker!
-In response the "top speed" post, I've got the G up to 145 mph on Hwy 1. I noticed that the cruise control wouldn't lock in above 90 though. [banghead]

I upgraded from a 2 door Saturn coupe, and boy was it an upgrade. I gave the Saturn to my dad and he loves it. Every time I see it at his place I'm glad I got my G. My only regret is getting the clear bra; it's doesn't go well on black.

Tell me more! Can you take some pics to show what it looks like after a couple of miles? This is just the info I have been waiting for. I looked at my bumper the other day and said "[bigeyes]maybe I should have gotten that clear bra..."

I hope I'm bucking a trend that's been going on for a while.
I had an '81 280ZX which I'm kicking myself for selling!!

No regrets, No regrets....of course, I've owned the car for less than a week :)
