    I want one so bad, the sport model 2008 with paddle shifters. What do you guys think of it? Thinking of spending 20k max if I get the money. Any other worthy contenders to consider?

    My girlfriend had one back in highschool and it was fast! Nice on the inside and has a very distinct sound, but like someone else said it does drink gas like water.

    One of my favorite cars (G37 coupe w/ 6 speed transmission). Highly tunable.

    There are 3 downsides to owning an Infiniti:
    1. Your monthly gas expense, especially if you're the enthusiastic driver type.
    2. Repair bills & maintenance. The cars are very solid, but if you need to do some repair it will cost you quite a bit, still beats any European car in this department IMO, since it doesn't need repair nearly as often. On the maintenance side you need to change brake pads often.
    3. It's not really a sports car, it's a great luxury car for everyday use. If you want a sports car, look at something else.
