Subject: PS: 93 9000 CSET vs 2005 Infinity G 35

PS. Forgot to mention FWD. I'll take FWD superior abilities in bad weather conditions over RWD superiority in ideal conditions any day. I live in NYC, not SOCAL I enjoyed watching a Mercedes CL sliping & sliding up a little hill in snow this winter being passed by little putt-putts like Tercels and Fits. I'll give the edge in safety to G 35 with its multiple airbags and ESC. Only 1 airbag in the 9000 but it's no safety slouch.
