Default Anyone else miss their G35/G37?

Don't get me wrong. I think the Q50 is head and shoulders better than the G35/G37. It is just the better and more luxurious car.

But I still have that soft spot for the G! Something so intangible about how it felt to drive it. I don't think the Q50 drives anything like how the G drove!

I traded my 2007 G35x in for the Q50. Dealer paid off the car for $12k and it looks like the car was sold at an auction to another dealer...I found the car on the new auto sales site:

2007 Infiniti G35x

Can't believe the price! I wish I had more time to sell it privately.

My 2011 G37x was a better car, much more fun to drive.

Chris...you received average trade in for your car...and the dealership is asking full retail plus a bit. That's the game....but they likely won't receive anywhere near the asking price. Furthermore, in most states you saved sales tax on the trade amount so the actual value of your trade is more like 12,700 (if your sales tax is 7%).

Not at all. I'm loving the hybrid Q so far that every time I see the G on the road it looks outdated.

Do I miss my ' 06 BMW 330i? Not a bit. I'm not a masochist.

I drove a 2012 G37 as a loaner for my Q50. It felt quite crude in comparison.

I do, especially when I see another black G37 like my previous car.

I said it before and I'll say it again, if it was a G37 S with nav, I would of bought it out and kept it.
