Ever since i saw a Lexus IS300 in first year of production i knew i wanted one. Eventually got a black 5 speed with spoiler.. (had my mind on NEVER letting it go)...... daily driven, loved it for 6 years longest i've had a car.. and then just happened to stop one day at lunch and test drive an absolutely gorgeous athens blue G37S... just on a whim.. guess what - i ended up buying it that same day. I'm 5'3" and find the G very comfortable. Like another reviewer said, it's a little light on response, need to anticipate acceleration or use the paddles or tap over into DS mode for more immediate shifts. For a 6 cylinder this car is FAAAAASSST!! 0-60 much faster than a Straight 6 Lexus, wow...

Bought this car 2 days ago and traded in my Lexus ES 350. The Lexus is truly a fantastic car for comfort and fuel economy, but it requires you to lose your man card. My past cars have been Mustang V8's, Saab 9.5, BMW 525 and Acura TL. I've only driven the G37 about 4 times so far, but I love it and can't wait to drive it again. It's quiet and comfy when you want it to be, but can certainly growl and perform with the push of a pedal. Some say the brakes are touchy, I say precise. Some don't like the "off the line" acceleration, buy a true sports car. Some don't like the trunk space, IT'S A COUPE! Head space? I'm 6' 190, no problem. I'm a car guy again!

I've driven all sorts of sports cars. I was looking for an all around sports car that would get me through a winter as well. This car delivers. It's not going to beat many other sports cars off the line but that mid powerband in the car is wonderful. Steady constant power all the way through the large band. One thing I don't particularly like is the clutch seems a bit mushy. Overall though this is a much sexier car than a 335 by BMW. With the blend of luxury and performance there really isn't anything out there in this price point that competes with it well.

Coming from 2002 BMW M3 SMG and 2008 Audi A4 6-Speed (GIAC chipped), G37S felt SLOW, maybe just a bit faster then my A4 (again GIAC chipped), and MUCH slower then M3. Steering not as tight as on previous cars, at 28k miles there was a lot of NOT normal wear on plastics and leather. The built quality inside is on par with Honda Civic. I am sorry, I wanted to like this car, but 335i (thats usually compared to G37S) is just a better car all around.

The Infiniti G37 is an amazing vehicle. Ever since I saw the original G35 I always wanted one. After the G37 came out I went and bought a 2 door G37 S with all the fixings including the 6 speed manual and navigation. This car is not only fast, but reliable and sexy all at the same time. A car with all of it's features normally sells for thousands of dollars more. Infiniti also made the interior of the car a lot better now and it is up to par with some of the nicer luxury cars out there. Give this car a test drive, you won't be disappointed!

I've owned an ivory pearl manual for 6 months. This car, for this price point, is unmatched (if you are looking at BOTH performance and luxury). The design is simply breathtaking. With ivory pearl paint, it's such a head turner. Ironically, G37 has a high exclusivity for a bargain price at its class. Interior is very nice, although could do with a little more insulation. The 3rd gear is what I call the auto gear because it is perfectly tuned for city driving, although 2nd gear is the real deal. 6th gear is the gran touring aka cruising mode. Overall, funnily, G37S somehow feels and looks more expensive than it really is. Count it: design, performance, exhaust, Nav, feel, price. All in one.
