The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 BMW M3 redefines the performance envelope for BMW's 3-Series range--but at a significant weight and price penalty. You might be going too fast to notice, though. The 2009 Infiniti G37 is a true sport sedan; it may be a little harsh for poseurs, but true driving enthusiasts will love it.
