I have owned a 02 BMW 330 sport sedan, a 03 BMW 540 sport manual 6 speed, and finally decided to give the japanese a try. The Infiniti M45 is by far the closest feel to the german's you can get in a japanese sports sedan. Great reliability, great styling, and many features. Problem with the car is the horrible gas mileage averaging 13.5 MPG in the city and that's 3.4 MPG less than my BMW 540. Tons of features but they are all low grade. For example..the seat heaters don't even compare to the BMWs, the sound system is very hollow and tin sounding (plastic like), shared dashboard gauges from the Altima, and last...the suspension is horribly rough on everyone in the car.
Looks, roomy, many features but they are low quality. I can't believe this car is almost 60 grand and they use a plastic dash from the Altima. Horrible.
Interior noise is so bad that blue tooth is really not usuable.The heated seets are not warm enough.The voice controls don't always work.The Navigation system requires exact entries...if you miss a W. or E. it will not even list the street.The ride is very rough.Gas mileage is terrible. Buy BMW!!!
