I was set on getting a G37 before I test drove the 335d and instead spent more money on it because I loved the power band. I had though considered a GT Mustang at the time but they went up a lot in cost around that time and if I get a mustang then part of the appeal would be "cheap pony" car. I have two young kids and don't see the Mustang as an issue. But for years I drove a 928S while my daughter was a baby to a toddler then for a few years drove a 1992 Saleen Mustang. One common thing in all those years is every single day I was commuting at least 110 miles with my daughter. Now days with my commute including both kids and wife then suppose any coupe would be cramped.

Back when I was shopping for a car, the difference in cost was not so great between the G and 3. Today the monthly payments are about $100 apart.
