The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
Despite the weight gain, the BMW M3's still one of the most stunning performance vehicles we've driven. A sexy, lavishly equipped luxury car, the 2012 Infiniti G37 Coupe has much of the vaunted performance feel of its primary German target.
