I recently upgraded to an Obsideon Black 2013 M37xS from a Malbec Black 2011 G37xS Sedan coming off of an 18 month lease. I also considered an M56xS, Q50 S AWD, FX37, Audi A6, Jaguar XF 3.0 AWD, and Chrysler 300 SRT8. The M won me over with it's combination of athleticism, size, and class. I have the Sport and Premium Packages, making this my perfect blend of luxury and sport. I'd consider myself an enthusiast-level driver and appreciate the go-fast bits. While the G37 may be more sports car-like, the M37 has plenty of grunt and feels next-level upscale, matching an A6, 5 Series, E Class, etc. This car has seen extensive snow, having easily traversed at least 7 inches worth multiple times.
- Exterior design is bold and muscular
- 20" rims look incredible
- Upscale interior
- Rear seat room
- Drive Mode Select; Sport, Standard, Eco, Snow
- Incredible in the snow
- Strong sound system
- Column-mounted paddle shifters
- The steering wheel heater button is in a ridiculously inconvenient place. It's located beneath the driver's left knee and requires an awkward bend to reach.
- Fold-down rear seats would be convenient
- Heads-up display would be a nice add
