Which ride would you get as an alternative?

hey, im just seeking some advice, im in kind of a dilemma and wondering what kind of cars you guys would get if you were me. I had a 350z that i recently sold, i loved that car but i couldn't really live with having only 2 seats. Im currently looking for a G35 because i get the power and the looks of the 350z along with the luxury and extra seats but i wanna know what kind of cars you guys would choose as an alternative to a G35? i've had some alternatives brought up such as a TL but TL's i find are quite large and not very special(too average) unless its a TL-S or Aspec. I took a look at an altima coupe but was so un-impressed i didn't even bother test drive it. i did like the push to start button though haha

What cars can you guys recommend if i wanted a car with looks, power and luxury? Something that turns peoples heads and can lure my eyes away from a G35 haha

ps: sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this on, im new to this

cant really beat a g35 at that price

can't think of anything else to buy really, a 335i or something would be nice but it's a big price difference

I would get an M3 if I were you, but a G35 is more of a head-turner.

How is driving the G35 on a daily basis? when i test drove one i found it was very soft and easy to drive but not as fun as driving a 350z. But i figured i would enjoy the G35 more for night cruising or driving long distances since its comfy.

i guess i should just wait it out for a nice G35 to come along, ive been searching high and low but i cant find any worth buying. i was just getting really anxious to get a car, feels wierd living without one. Oh yeah does anyone even know how much an M3 would cost for an N driver? i heard the insurance is as expensive as it gets on those cars, thats what makes me second guess them. the 350z was already expensive to ensure i cant imagine

it sounds like he wants to keep his g35 as his main ride and having a second cheaper vehicle thats also cool to look at.... i'd get a Mini or a Celica (im biased with this one but the Celica just looks sooo awesome i fall in love again everytime i go in my garage), or a Mustang or the new Camaro

E39 M3 just because they're so tempting, but they're probably not anywhere near as comfy as a G35, but I like the look of the 3 series better maybe a used S4 but horrible on gas

I think the suspension on the G35 is more or less the same as the 350z. My car is lowered on 19"s with thin tires, so it's a bit stiff. Although the G35 has 4 seats, I wouldn't suggest sitting 4 people in the car all the time...it's tough getting in the rear driver's side seat.

I've driven my car to Whistler and Seattle before...very fun to drive on long trips!

Insurance for the M3 for an N driver will be costly, guaranteed.

For 25Gs. If you don't mind the trouble.

Lancer Evolution 9. But you gotta import from the states. Now that will turn heads just because there are so few.
