Subject: 93 9000 CSET vs 2005 Infinity G 35


I just sold my house, got a little extra cash burning a hole in my pocket so I thought I'd treat myself to a new car. I've been researching the luxury-mid luxury market - everything from BMW 745i to Lexus ES to Infinity G35 - and settled on the G35 as the ideal combination of style, practicality, safety, economy, reliability. Before shelling out $25-$30k for a low mileage 2005 G35 sedan my practical side decided to do the numbers and compare it to my 93 9000. mileage: G 35 19/26; Saab 20/32 US mpg (my experience) interior: G 35 adequate room, up to date styling & features, almost new car smell; Saab adequate room, very comfortable cargo capacity: G 35 14.8 cu ft; Saab 23.5 cu ft!!!!!!!! performance: G 35 0-60 6.1; Saab 7.0 reliability: G 35 It's an Infinity; Saab It's a 13 y/o 180k miles Saab So, I got to thinking. The Saab still runs like new, all major components have been serviced or are in excellent working order, with the turbo I really enjoy driving it. Do I really need to spend $25. for worse fuel economy, marginally better performance, somewhat better handling (I can't remember the last time I was at a race track), a lot less cargo capacity and a nice new interior??? In the end I decided to keep the 9000, spruce up the interior (the front seats need restiching), get a new stereo, shampoo the rugs, Lexol the leather, wash and wax it, invest the $25k in commodity options (gold, silver, oil, uranium - you heard it here last) and save the environment by consuming less. Once again goodness prevails. Now all we have to deal with are hunger, poverty, global warming, oil depletion, environmental degredation, "terrorists" and corporate whore/war criminals in charge of the largest pile of WMDs in the world. -- These photos are only of a very tiny fraction of the thousands of Iraqi Civilian Victims who have been terrorised, humiliated, injured, maimed and killed through British and American bombing of civilian areas in various cities of Iraq. Due to lack of security, independent reporters could not and still can not reach many areas to photograph and report the atrocities. Several independent reporters and journalists were deliberately bombed to prevent them reporting the atrocities. Please note that some of these pictures are not suitable for small children and those who have weak hearts. http://www.robert-fisk.com/iraqwarvictims_mar2003.htm http://mindprod.com/iraq.html -- Posted via a free Usenet account from http://www.teranews.com
