The S4 is very tempting but I hate convertibles and G35 is not available with a stick-shift and AWD. In the end, the car that gets my vote for best non-sports car of the year is the sportiest. wink.gif

I was so tempted by the SX4 (it's a lovable little scamp!) but the combination of RWD, manual transmission, and a sharp 306 HP, 7500 RPM V6, combined with the first Infiniti interior I like, means the G35 gets my vote.

S4 with the G35 a close second (only because I'm not a huge fan of the new styling).
