M at the 2005 NYIAS

Postby louiegz » Wed Mar 30, 2005 7:09 am

Good Friday was very good because I was at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. I closed up shop early and went with a buddy of mine. He took some pics with his camera. I sat in the M35x. Man, what a nice seat. Everything in the M was top notch. Great fit and finish. One complaint would be that they cheeped out by putting the seat controls down the side of the seat, instead of on the door, like my Q, making it hard to reach with the doors closed. The inside of the doors were also a bit plain looking, going rather conservative in the styling as opposed to the style of the rest of the interior. The wheels on the M45 are hot. I love those wheels and the car looks great in person. The pics don’t do it justice. I do have a big complaint of the M35x’s engine bay. Since the engine is small for the space, plastic covers are all over the place to cover it up. I better start saving my money to get one of these. I have more pics to come.

I really like the look of the latest OEM wheels. They've got a dash of retro.

Those are actually the Sport wheels and aren't available on the M35X AWD.

In brilliant marketing move, both M35x and M45 Sport are the same color.

You'd be surprised at how many have a preference of one silver over the other. Look at it in the sun and you'll see the difference between Diamond Grahpite, Brilliant Silver, and Desert Platinum.

Ahh yes, but without Infiniti's repeated marketing blunders, marketing students wouldn't have much to study!

I need to find a zoomed out shot of those wheels. The body will never appeal to me, but with the aero kit it could work. As a child of the 80s, I prefer lean looks and lots of straight lines.

I see what you mean now about the plastic, Lou. I know they say its there for sound deadening, but it bugs the hell out of me. I like to pop the lid and see the guts fully exposed.

Fortunately, no.
