2008 Infiniti M (Facelift)

46 posts in this topic

Infiniti may have dissapointed some when they unveiled the 2008 EX35 crossover earlier today, but the following images of the 2008 M look promising. They've renewed interest in this car for me, at least. The tidier taillamps do wonders for it in my opinion.

See Infiniti, it's not that hard :)

I'm beginning to think I need to find another GM site. First the Mazda 6 humping... now this.

Infiniti M, How are you derivative... let me count the ways:

1. Think fast! Is it a G or an M?

Posted Image

2. Holy Saab Greenhouse Batman!

Posted Image

3. No longer putting that much thought into the clock anymore.....

Posted Image

and of course there are the buttons angled up and away from the driver.

They saw the light.

The earlier tailights were bloated.

This is actually a good looking car now.

I'm glad they changed the rear end. I've always really liked this car, but thought the taillights were its weakest point.

I'm thinking your biased ass might. :P

The only thing I nearly come to agreement with are the comments about the interior. That Saab comment was just silly... There is nothing remotely similar about it and any Saab. And if one can't tell the difference between an M and a G, I pull the blindness card.

Personally, I wasn't much of a fan of the M, but these slight changes improve upon its looks greatly. I especially like the view from the rear now.

Eh...it's not bad, but I like the last-gen M much better.

Sorry, it wasn't directed at you specifically..... just the sudden surge of praise for otherwise unremarkable asian cars on a GM fan site.

I'm not biased for or against Mazda. I think the current 6 is a fine car and handles well. However, I don't think it or the previews of the new one warrants any "wow! that's hot!"

RX-8 - sure that was a wow when new

Sky - that's a wow

300c - that's a wow usually in a very good or very bad way

Accord - meh

Camry - meh

Aura - meh, wow only because it came from saturn and took NA car of the year on the first try.

yeah... no similarity there..... the difference is the.... hood cut line... and the location of the turn signal inside the headlamp cluster?

nor here.... I will give them credit... they did use an Altima cut line for the rear most side windows....

People are just offering their opinion... they can say whatever they want and you don't have to agree with them, but that doesn't mean you don't have to respect their opinion.

Even though I think it looks a little bit better, I still don't find the M to be very attractive or interesting.

From what was shown of the new Mazda6, it will easily be the best looking midsizer, which, certainly warrants more than what you were willing to give it credit for.

Also, any self respecting auto enthusiast could tell which was the M and the G... With their eyes closed. Similar design theme or not, its easy to see the differences. As for the greenhouse, again, there is absolutely NOTHING similar between it and a Saab. I'm beginning to think that you're delusional.

I'm really confused as to how the M's greenhouse looks anything like that of the 9-3.

:withstupid:

It's pretty easy to tell the differences between an M and a G, as he said, any self respecting car enthusiast can tell the difference. As for the roofline, you must be blind or trying desperately to knock the car. The rooflines aren't even the same...if you need proof for yourself because your eyes aren't good enough to do the job open up PhotoShop, put the cars in layers, turn down the opacity of the top layer and there ya go.

Anyway, I like the changes to the rear...they make it look a lot better...which is good because IMO the rear was the only real weak point of the car's design.

It's not the auto enthusiasts Infiniti should be worried about..... I can tell the difference between a '03, '04, 05', and '06 CTS visually. To everyone else, they'd look the same.

It's gotta pass the mother test. If your mother can't tell the difference between the models without looking at the badges, it's not different enough.

By your logic the CTS, STS and every other Cadillac look the same and not different enough because the front ends all use the same styling cues...vertical lights, same shape grill, etc.

there is a difference between using the same grill and similarly shaped grills.

Take a look at the fronts of most any brand of the same vintage. You'll find the same damn thing. It's called a family resemblence. Most brands have one. Hell, most cars from the '70s, '80s and early '90s look a like regardless of brand. Your old Cutlass Supreme could easily be mistaken for a Grand Prix or even a Sunbird by the aforementioned "mother test". My mom does it on a regular basis.

Yeah... it doesn't have the quintessential Saab "hockey stick."
