    The M button on the steering wheel activates all 10 cylinders.

    Is it just me or is the M3 tied for #1 douche-mobile in the universe with the G35?

    Are you drunk already?

    I don't think it has the perception of being the #1 douche-mobile but you can't deny it is an excellent car (then again, you drive SUVs so you probably don't care too much for spirited driving with fun handling dynamics).

    But I appreciate the jab!

    Just because you're a young business man does not mean you are not a douche. ;)


    I was going to put, "No hate on Frog" in my post as it was not really aimed at you. Douche does not have an age limit on it, and seriously, the only people I know that drive M3s are douche nozzles.

    As to "spirited driving," while my GL is in no way like an M3, it is a fun vehicle to drive. One of the reasons I picked it over all the other luxury SUVs is because it drives far sportier than the others. Modern suspension technology is pretty amazing.

    Lastly, you have to learn to stop tossing around the word "drunk" as if it is a pejorative.

    It doesn't do that. It lets the throttle valves open up from 90 percent to 100 percent. All 10 cylinders are always active.

    I like G35 coupes. I get the M3 thing, but why the hate on the Infiniti? :puzzled:

    Lol I remember Jeremy Clarkson saying how M3 drivers have no friends haha. I was debating on getting either Jag. XFR or M5 but I got XFR as I was the only one with that in my city. Loved it with Quicksilver exhaust.

    That was pretty on-point, Infiniti G's tend to be the domain of douchebags in America. Unfortunately, everything else in and around that segment tends to follow closely behind (Audi A4, 3-series, C-class, etc) - not that douchebags didn't exist in the early '90's, but I do feel that whenever the huge housing boom started and everybody in California got middle-class rich and bought their high school kids entry level luxury cars in the mid to late 90's and that spread across the nation and underage kids no longer drove beaters - combined with the 'tuning' movement, that segment was doomed forever.
