I'm keeping my Accord but...

...just picked this up yesterday for a night/weekend car.

Yeah, I know it isn't as reliable as my Accord overall and I really did consider snapping up the 7th gen 6MT sedan that showed up recently on craigslist but I just couldn't see buying the same car again other than the transmission.

I bought my Accord in September 2011 with 74,900 miles. Currently at 219,400, would like to keep it for work for another 4-5 years and it is more likely I can do that if I can stop putting 30-35k miles on it every year.

The G35 is a one owner car, 132k miles (low for the DFW area) and I only paid $5000 for it.

Going through everything that was in with the owners manual, I have all the service records, original sales contract and even the window sticker. Plus 6 new, in the box, Nissan oil filters were in the trunk.

Definitely need to tint the windows. Then mods like a plenum spacer and Y-pipe. Things that make a difference without making it excessively loud. It is quicker than my Accord but its more noticeable after 60 mph.
