2011 Inifiniti M56: Distracting Details
March 23, 2011
I love almost everything about our long-term M56. It's fast, comfortable, intuitive to use, big enough and good looking. I even love its interior. Except for one detail.
Can you guess what it is from this photo? Revelation after the jump.
It doesn't belong in interiors. Especially on surfaces as close to the driver as the face of the steering wheel. Although the photo doesn't capture it perfectly, it does give you some idea how distracting and powerful the reflection from even the smallest piece of chrome can be.
And on certain stretches of my morning commute, this thing is absolutely blinding. Hits me right in the eyes. As long as I'm on that trajectory there's little I can do but squint or cover the emblem with my hand.
