The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 BMW 1-Series makes a true Bimmer available for under $30,000 (but just barely). The Infiniti G37 Coupe is the best-selling coupe in the segment for a number of good reasons: it’s incredibly fast and handles well, and it’s good-looking in a well-heeled way.
