Thinking about buying a G35 coupe, is this a good deal?

Hello all, I'm in the market for a new car. Finally upgrading from my 1999 Infiniti I30 (I've made it last), and I'm pretty dead set on purchasing a used G35/G37 (preferably 05-10). The one I'm looking at right now looks like it'd be a great purchase, but most of the G35s (this one included) I've looked at are quite higher than their KBB value. For example this one is a 2005, with 37K miles, and is priced at $13500, even though its KBB value lists it as closer to $12000 at excellent condition. As far as I can tell it has all the standard features (premium sound/wheels), and no upgrades. Is this standard for used G35s, or am I just not looking hard enough/being patient enough? Thanks in advance!

Its priced too high because of the low miles (obviously). At that price, I would opt for a 06-08 instead with less than 100k miles. I would not buy that 05 you mentioned, or you will be throwing money away.

Don't be afraid if the mileage is a bit higher (say 50-100k) as long as it has been well maintained. You will get more value for your money if its priced more reasonably.

Some sellers tend to price them too high just because the mileage is low. There's an 05 in my area selling for $14k with 78k miles... retarded.

stick or communist? keep looking. better deals are out there to be had, don't let low mile cars fool you into paying too much. If you wait the right car will present itself

Haha, communist. And thanks for the responses! I've seen a few good steals out there, but you really got to be quick, otherwise they get sold fast! I'm patient, though, my I30 will last me until I find the one I'm looking for. Out of curiosity, how much do you think something like that should be priced?

personally I wouldn't pay more than 11.5 for that car, low miles is definitely a plus but not enough for the crazy high mark ups that sellers want. And it's a 12 year old car

Is this more within reason? A little bit newer, but also a little more pricier. How low do you think I could get something like this for?

My bad. I was literally just on the page too. It was a 2008 dealer owned G37 Journey (automatic), with 58000 miles. As far as I can tell, it might of also included the premium package (bluetooth, moonroof, etc). The price they were asking for was around $16800.
