A perfect blend of sport and luxury
March 28, 2018
This car has been an excellent daily driver for over a year. Mine is the hard top convertible and the automatic top has been excellent, both fun and reliable. I've put 12,000 miles on it (bought at 44k, now at 56k) with not a single mechanical or technological issue.
Fast, fun, reliable. What more can you ask? Oh, and it has back seats that are fairly comfortable for friends, a FANTASTIC sound system, and more smart suspension technology than a brand new 2019 base Corvette.
Think Nissan 370Z, plus backseats and a ton of luxury features. That's a G37. The IPL is like the 370's NISMO. It adds speed, better exhaust (WAAAAAY better. It roars when floored and purrs happily otherwise) and classy exclusive colors. The Malbec Black exterior is a super cool deep purple in the sunlight, just be warned that it looks close enough to true blace to need regular cleaning just like a black car! The red interior is the first thing anyone notices about it, though. Truly epic.
Adding the drop top feature makes it even more fun, but sacrifices almost all trunk space. In my opinion though? Totally worth it, I never missed the trunk space at all. I DID miss not being able to put the top down if my wife and I were on a road trip with suitcases in the back, though. So obviously the wind in your hair is more important than extra space, lol.
A lot of reviews act like the convertible adds too much weight to be truly sporty compared to coupes, but that's crazy. I've run with a 2017 Camaro from 0-100 and we stayed literally mirror-to-mirror through every shift. This is a truly sporty beast of a car hidden in a refined guise. Too much fun; definitely try one if you're looking at BMW 335's or similar sports coupes/convertibles. You'll be impressed.
