Default 2 questions for open minded auto enthusiasts

I'm still tossing up cars for later this year when I pick up my new(er) nicer car...some cars are out and some cars are in...and I would get a BMW Mini Cooper S but it's not 4 door...seriously considered getting one. But it just wouldn't be practical for a 6ft 200lbs non-"cracker" white guy to drive. Here's my current quandry...

1) '03-04 Infinity G35 Sedan vs '03 Jaguar S-Type V8 (preferably S-Type R if I can find/afford it)

or

2) '04 Nissan 350Z vs '05 Mazda6 5 Door (sport model or the Mazdaspeed 6)

Please choose only ONE from each number...and please DO NOT choose or mention any other cars not on the list...as that's not part of the quick questionaire. Please please please don't, ... seriously. I'm taking this as serious as I possibly can. Car enthusiasts only need apply. Thank you for your partisipation.

*edit*
Oh and keep in mind I plan on getting like a 1999 Nissan Altima or 2000 Suzuki Esteem for gas mileage to drive to and from work. So gas mileage is out of the equasion for this.

Acura TL.

I have to hijack your thread and ask if you get discounts on parts...I need to replace my front pads on a stock 01 TL. If you can get me some cross drilled rotors and the appropriate pads for under $100, I'd send many a whore to you and you'd have my neverending respect and love.

I was at the dealership today and sat in the 05 RSX, 05 TL and 05 MDX. When I go back, I'm taking a test drive in the MDX...it's EXACTLY like my TL, except an SUV.

RSX has great gas mileage...31 on the highway. Not enough room in the backseat though....your passengers will complain. Get a used TL.

I sell computers and not cars or auto parts. I wish I had a discount on auto parts, I could use the whores. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

Dispite the fact that no one partisipated (<img src=smilies/eek13.gif>) I've all but chosen the G35 Sedan and or the Mazda6 (Mazdaspeed6). Now it's between those two...probably going to be the G35 since I've driven one on a regular basis.

I don't follow Mazda really. But is that Mazdaspeed6 in similar style to the SpeedProtege released in '03ish?

It's basically a Mazda6 5 Door Sport with a Turbo 4cyl motor instead of a natually asirpated V6. It's a nice car...but the G35 Sedan just seems to have more things I'm looking for in a luxury sport sedan. I'd really love to get my hands on a Jaguar S-Type R but I doubt I'd find one in my price range and with the color I want (British Racing Green). <img src=smilies/banghead.gif>

The G35 is what I would have picked. Im a big Nissan/Infiniti fan. Im looking at hopefully getting a 1996 Q45 sometime this year. I currently drive a 1991 Q45.

I've got to be the biggest Nissan fan out there. I've owned and driven 3 high mileage Nissans everyday to work in traffic and I've never so much as had to do anything other than; oil changes, tires, and brakes. I really really like Subarus, Toyotas, and even Mazdas...but to me Nissan just owns every non-european car. I can't wait to get a G35 Sedan...my co-worker is getting a Coupe and a friend of mine is getting a Sedan himself this year along with me. Having said all that...the ONLY G35 Sedan I want is just like the one pictured here:







There's a few things I will change about my G35 as soon as I get the extra $$$:

1) Remove all Infinity badging and replace with Nissan badging (Except I won't use the Japanese Skyline badge since it's not Right-Hand Drive--and that would be just like all these crackers here locally claiming thier Integras are Type-R)
2) Paint all chrome trim the (Royal) Caribbean Blue body color.
3) Remove stock rear bumper, muffler, exhaust tips and install either Japanese Skyline replacements or install a Maxima bumper and use a custom welded dual exhaust.
4) Install a nice aftermarket MP3 radio head unit with DVD-R/RW reading capability.
5) Limo Tint
6) Replace the stock rims with either G35 Coupe rims (chrome) or the Rays Engineering rims (chrome) that are on the 350Z Track.

There's a few minor things...but that's it for the most part. Just got to keep my nice job so I can realize my dream. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif><img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
