I've been away for far too long. Please don't roast me if I'm in the wrong section. I did search but only found posts from long ago.
I Would like to hear some opinions regarding a new daily driver. I'm a bit of an older Nissan fan and looking to see if anyone would like to participate in a discussion regarding the 2006 G35 Sedan (specifically 2006 because of the 3.5 HR motor) vs a 2009 M45 (mainly because I haven't owned a V8 and updated exterior styling but open to pre-2009) to help me decide.
I did some research and mpg seems to be a wash between the two. Interior volume advantage seems to go to the M45 but only in extra length room as the width is minimal in difference when compared to the G35. I tend to tinker with my toys and G35 has the advantage there by far in terms of aftermarket support. Interior comfort, materials, and technology goes to the M45. Speed performance is not necessarily top priority here either as neither is maximum mpg. I guess I'm looking for smiles per gallon here
Anyone have any opinions on the matter or personal experience they'd like to share to help me narrow down my decision? Commute is between 25-35 miles one way per day
Thanks in advance and Happy New Year!
