Heres some pics of the TC...

I loved the car but the g35 is the car Ive wanted for a long time. One thing that sucked about the TC is that there wasnt as many aftermarket parts as there are for the g35 since its been out for a while.

I'm totally jealous. I would also trade the tC in a heartbeat for the car, and yeah, the g35 doesnt even need mods, it's so nice the way it is. Why didn't you get it as a stick though?
Im not flaming, just saying, yeah if I could afford a Ferrari, I'd buy that in a heartbeat as well, but I can't so I'm not gonna tell all you tc owners in a tc forum that I just got rid of my tc for one. My point is just this: G35=luxury car....TC=cheap, younger buyer sport compact. There is really no fair comparison. I like the G and the Z, but I wouldn't buy one, and not only because I'm not rich, they're too expensive!
In case that didn't go thru Im not flaming, just saying the cars are not comparable. G35=luxury car, TC=cheap sport compact. See what I'm saying. Its not just the money thing. I like the G and the Z as well, but they're too much money and they're not gonna fly you to the moon or anything. My point is, this is a tc forum, we want to hear and talk about the tc, not here how great your g35 is. If I went out and bought a ferrari, which i've always loved, I wouldn't come on here and tell everyone how much better it is than there tc. No hard feelings, just explaining my previous posts. But like I said, I like the g35 too, its just more of an upscale car. The TC is in a class with civics, mazda 3's and 6's, lancers and eclipses, and that kinda stuff. But good luck with it!
Well, just to keep the thread alive, I'll add my $0.02. I thought about getting one right before my tC when the lease rates went waaaay down. Even though I would never lease, it made the whole proposition really interesting. AAR, to make a long story short, the more I considered it, the more g35s I saw. Seems like everyone and their mother, and brother, and sister had one. Nice car, but when I had my j30 years ago, they were unique. Not so with the g35s.

Cool car -- enjoy it in good health!
Awesome trade man, that is the car I want as soon as i graduate college... then i'll be trading my tC. That's actually why i chose the tC cause it kinda reminds me of the g35 in some ways... esp when its lowered. Good luck with the new car!
Well i can afford the G35 and even higher priced cars but i didn't buy one. I bought an 06 scion TC becasue of its uniqueness and quality. If i wanted to, I could of bought a G35, Evo VIII, WRX STI, 350Z, or any other nice luxury sports car but i didn't. I chose to get a unique car that not everyone has and that i could dump more money into to customize and be mine personally. Money was no problem in my situation, but i bought the tc because its a great car. It always get the looks. Buying a car for speed now is over. There is someone out there within blocks of you that probably has a faster car then you and can beat you. Racing now a days is over-rated. You are never the best. Someobe out there has a better car then you and someone else has one faster than his. If i wanted to race, i'd invest in a Ferrari Enzo, Chrysler ME412, Viper SRT10, Porshe, or Lamborgini Diablo and then add a sick turbo. Then i would be the fastest car in my area. I also got the TC because everyone in my area has a G35, RSX, WRX, SUPRA, SRT-4, and more. If i wanted to beat them, i would buy an expensive $1,000,000 car. But i didn't. I didn't care about having the best car. I just wanted a car that i could personalize and that no one else could copy.
Anyway, congrats on your G35. It is a Great car and was your choice to purchase. If you like a car and its your dream, then buy it. Good luck with your new baby and don't listen to people who are jealous. Pz out man

It does seem like just about every G35 I see is driven by a middle-aged woman...
kind of my point, or yuppy dads going thru a mid life crisis
Can't argue with their exhaust note though. Dayum...
you lucky ######! haha. i would get a 350z, but i dont feel like shelling out $900/month for payments/insurance/gas, even if i can afford it.
I'm gonna get a Ferrari, Lambo, Mercedes AMG, M3, a lotus, bentley...anymore suggestions??? ANyone? I figure, why not? I'M LOADED! Ha ha ha ha ha ha hah. j/k. totally satisfied with my tc. Thats why I bought it. I didn't just buy it because its the hottest new car on the market and then get bored with it after a few some people. Ehm, ehm.
What wheels were on your TC? They look nice.
The 350z looks way better and cheaper. I can't afford either of the two. The 350z is definitely my next car after I graduate from college and then after I get a stable income. I guess I'm pretty lucky to have a new TC off the income of a college student.

Lets see which one will last longer though...  A Toyota (Scion) or a Nissan (infiniti)???  I know the answer but do u?  Good call ace

I used to have 1998 Nissan Maxima with 275,000 miles on it!!!!! I loved that car!!! It was REALLY FAST!!!! then I got 2000 Maxima and I sold it when it had 150,000 on it!! ( NO MAJOR PROBLEMS!!!)

Nice ride!!! Good Luck with it!!!!

Nissan's reliability ratings have declined in recent years, but the company still has a good reputation for reliability.

Side note -- how the hell did you put 275,000 miles on a car in 2 years?
haha no kidding, was this the first nissan to orbit the earth
