Awesome! Looks like a big-G coupe. That is exactly what I was hoping for over the last few months. This one will sell. Think of it with the Q45 engine in it. Bring it on!

I think it's gonna catch on to you guys. Actually, these are the first negative reviews I have heard. The interior is pretty hot you must admit.

I find the current M a little boxy for my tastes, but it's reminiscent of some of those mopar beasts of the 60s and 70s. However, this new M, though I like the front fascia and the rear, lacks the long classic lines of a full size sedan. It just doesn't look classy to me.

And the interior would go better in the current G, its sleek but not again not classy.

I love the current M. I like this one better, except those odd silver strips across the roof arch.

Nicer that the curent M. I'd buy it if the price is right. No more than 45K. I plan to keep my Q at least 4 years until I pay off my wife's 330i. Let's see what's out then.

I like it quite a bit. The exhaust exiting through the bumper is a little hokey, but overall it a much more cohesive design and is a big improvement compared the current offering IMO.

Sorry about ou guys having this discussion AGAIN, however when I searched for it I got no results to that particular thread. Sorry. But for those of you who havent put your two cents in feel free. I was kind of surprised when I saw the thread because it was my first time seing it. My bad. Maybe it's my computer and not the site.

I want Infiniti to build a G45 ala the CTS-V and the rumored IS430. Weren't there rumors that one was going to be built a few months ago?

I kind of like it too. Not the chrome strips though. I'm just glad Infiniti is taking chances in design to stand out somewhat instead of running like a chicken with no head. Seems like they improved the ergonomics. The dash and interior are hot to me. I hope the Q is even more a step beyond. I will only buy infiniti or Lexus at this point. Oops! Can I say Lexus?:pface

Shame on you! Honestly if there wasn't Infiniti I'd go that way. You really cant beat the Japanese for a good all around product.

to qoute river city ransom, "barf!"

I hate the way all the new japanese products look like a damn deformed jellybean, it's like looking at a souless robot (then again it is the japanese, could be what the silly bastards are going for) I miss the days of sleek low slung cars, I don't give a damn about trunk space, that's what the back seat is for!

I do like big wheels though...
