Hey guys, I'm looking to buy a new car and I was wondering if you guys could give me your opinion on the matter. I am looking for reliability here but here are the options i have. (feel free to lay down any options you like but nothing used please)

-2012 BMW 335i Sedan (the new redesigned model)
-2012 Audi A5
-2012 Nissan 370z
-2012 Mitsubishi Evo X
-2012 Infinity G37x Sedan

I'm going to buy this spring but i do not want to buy something that will be redesigned next year so i thought BMW would be the best option. Since the car has been fairly redesigned i was hoping maybe reliability and stuff is for the better? I know i should ask this in a car forum, but their all biased in a way lmfao.

Thanks :)

Def something I'll drive a lot. I guess BMW is good? should i just get the base 335i or 328i with packages? I really wish they'd just release the AWD versions already

You thinking of getting the 3.5L model ?

I can tell you one thing.. take the evo x off the list... very bad MPG and horrendous Turbo lag... just like their predecessor the evo 10 and 11

Yeah the V6 model but i hear the new V4's are doing very well too. So idk if V6 will really be worth it and if AWD is truly necessary for me. It usually snows in Jersey but not really this winter. Just cause of AWD i was looking at the A5 since the 2012 sedan xdrive's for the 3 series isn't out yet

I like Infiniti too but the G series is redesigned for next year. I dont want something thatll be last generations model real quick if you know what im saying? I guess BMW it is. It just comes down to 328i with packages or 335i base.

328i with extras sounds the better deal

- the 2.8l engine will be as capable as the 3.5l
-with extras you can kit it out and still be probably under the price of the 335i base

Just took a second look at those prices (30k - 42k), and it's not fair..! Why? Lets see:

Don't know the prices for each model in the states, but it's between 30 - 42K:

-2012 BMW 335i Sedan
-2012 Audi A5
-2012 Nissan 370z
-2012 Mitsubishi Evo X
-2012 Infinity G37x Sedan

Prices in Norway:


-2012 BMW 335i Sedan = $90.000
-2012 Audi A5 = $130.000
-2012 Nissan 370z = Unknown
-2012 Mitsubishi Evo X = $140.000
-2012 Infinity G37x Sedan = Unknown

Soooo.. I'm totally buying a car from the states!

Holy crap, that's a hell of a rip off and a price difference.
