While the M45 Sport was Car and Drivers Number one vehicle in a recent shoot out - it just does not merit the number one unless fully loaded. The base cars are awfully feature poor. The loaded cars are complicated - like the I-drive of BMW. Almost a great car - weak exhaust note, overly acitve design... Keep Looking!
2006 Infiniti M45J Smooth - Powder Springs, GA11/30/2008
I have a 2006 M45 with the sport package and I love it. The interior is way more luxurious than my brother-in-laws BMW 530 and more power as well. The only thing it needs is door locks that automatically engage when you shift to drive. It drinks gas, but that's what you expect when you get a V8. You don't want to spend for the gas, give up some power and go with the G35. You can't go wrong either way.
This car has so much style, comfort and dependability that its not even funny. I had a E350 same year and it didn't have half the room, features (heated/cool seats, navigation, turn radius etc) or maintenance. The maintenance on this car is affordable and the power you get will sure to delight you.
I love it!
