    GTO is incredible for the amount of money you pay. But the resale value will suck.

    the gto is probably the better value

    but I'd still pay extra and get the g35c

    GTO is obviously faster.
    The G35c doesn't look like runover asshole and will still be running in 6 years

    If you want a nice luxury & smooth ride get the G35C, but if you want more power in return of the wheels get the GTO.

    exactly.....the GTO is definitely the better value if you're talking about performance

    but I'd rather pay extra and get the much better looking, more luxurious car :dunno:

    Still, the trade in value will be shit compared to a G35.
    My friend's 2002 M3 lost only about 10g so far in depreciation. While my 02 wrx lost a little more in depreciation (almost half of what the car is worth.) I am so tempted to buy a M3 and just drive it for 2 years, and trade it in. At the end, he had a much better car for the same price.

    G35c for everything else

    G35C is a great car, but I don't even think it has 250hp hardly. Where as the GTO, is probably at the 300 - 320hp mark.

    it's really not that much of a step up, but there are quite a few small things that make it more luxurious in my eyes :dunno:

    The g35 is clearly the better looking car, GM sackriders aside, and Infiniti is a much, much more reliable brand than GM, currently.
    Not to mention the GTO has been dead in the water from a sales standpoint since its introduction. :rolleyes: all you want, people are voting with their pocketbooks and the goat is getting its ass kicked.
